​In respect of His Self, God possesses the Unity of the One, but in respect of His Names, He possesses the Unity of the many.

(Ibn Arabi)


God’s thoughts are immediately translated into real existences....God’s conceptions are at once objective essences.

(Michael Sendivogius)

How great is the power of God! His mere will is creation; for God alone created, since He alone is truly God. By a bare wish His work is done, and the world’s existence follows upon a  single act of His will.

(Clement of Alexandria)


When God set forth to create the universe, his Thought encompassed all the worlds at once.... All were created in a single instant.

(Zohar)

He commanded, and they were created.

(Psalm CXLVIII. 5)

Without effort he sets in motion all things by mind and thought. 

(Xenophanes)

Since in God being and thinking are identical, the notion which God, in thinking Himself, generates as an exact image of Himself, is identical with God Himself.

(Marsilio Ficino)

Description:

An insightful and absorbing introduction to the ten gates of Jewish mysticism and how they apply to daily life.
 
"There is a place that is as far from here as breathing out is from breathing in. For the word is very near to you. Where life forever holds gentle sway over death, where people are human with the same grace that a willow is a willow, where the struggle and the yearning between male and female is at last resolved.... It is to begin with, all inside us."

(From the Introduction)



"In the past decade I've read Honey from the Rock at least half a dozen times. Every time I read it I wonder if I have ever read it before. Either it keeps changing, or I do. Maybe it s both.... As someone told me: 'Lawrence Kushner is a mystic. He gives you flashes of insight.'"
