Order of the Whole Creation

Order brings unity and harmony, while chaos brings discord. Chaos brings struggle, and there has been a struggle for thousands of years between the forces of order and the forces of chaos. In spiritual life, we progress towards order and unification both internally and externally. Understanding the whole of creation is based on our comprehension of creation’s order. Planting cycles, seasonal cycles, or lunar cycles all show order. The more we align with that order, the more harmonious and uplifting is our spiritual life. What do we see in the world today? We see deliberate disorder and deliberate chaos. Taking […]

Essene Week 4-The Essene Mantra

The Essenes taught a way of being whole and peaceful that included following the laws of the Torah, but took one beyond rote performing of the laws. Their teachings were not meant to replace the Ten Commandments, but rather to offer a way to transform oneself into the living law of the Ten Commandments as the Ten Speakings. The teaching and lineage were given to King David, King Solomon, Samuel the Prophet, and to the prophets Elijah, Elisa, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Amos. Many of these prophets lived on the Mount Carmel mountain range and guided the people who gathered […]

Effects of Over-Eating on Our Minds

Over-eating in general, especially of excess protein, and eating late in the evening are two sure ways to make the mind and body go numb. The body-mind life force becomes drained because it has to divert essential energy to support the over-strained digestive system and compensate for low cellular oxygen from blood sludging and high fats. By eating too much protein, one not only encourages bowel toxicity but often tends to become too acidic.  The more acidic our system, the slower and less clear our thinking becomes. When our blood pH moves from its normal level of 7.4 to even […]

Why Miron Glass?

The Secret of Miron Violet Glass Sun and sunlight play an important role in our daily life. Who does not feel joy when exposed to the first rays of sunshine after a long cold winter or when seeing a beautiful rainbow or sunset? Sunlight is enormously important for growth. In fact, there is no life possible without light. This same light that initially made growth possible also accelerates the process of molecular decay. As soon as plants, for example, are ready for harvesting, they must be used immediately or preserved efficiently. If they are exposed to sunlight after being gathered, […]

Consciousness Prior to the Mind

We are multidimensional beings within the physical plane, the mental plane, and the emotional plane. The integration of these aspects of being is part of spiritual life. There are many reasons to meditate, and one important reason is so that we can invert our consciousness and the activities of the mind back into their proper place. For most people, mind controls consciousness, which, unfortunately, tends to make them unconscious. In meditation, we can step outside the mind and witness its movements, instead of believing we are located inside the mind as the mind. This shift in orientation profoundly changes how […]

Body Toxins are Real!

Many people think that the phrase “toxins in the body” is just some jargon of food faddists. Research over the last hundred years shows that these bowel toxins actually exist. Not only do they exist, but they have a tremendous negative impact on mental and physical well-being. Toxins usually come from a process called intestinal toxemia, an overgrowth of putrefactive intestinal bacteria in the small and large intestine. These toxins are then absorbed into the blood stream and from there affect both our mental and physical functioning. Intestinal toxemia is predominantly caused by an excessively high animal protein diet. Overeating, […]

Week 3: The Modern Living Essene Way

The Modern Living Essene Way, with its foundation in the perennial liberation wisdom teachings going back to Enoch, and perhaps even Adam, is not a religion. It is a way of life grounded by ancient and basic principles that can guide us to creating the Sevenfold Path of Peace in our lives, and on the living planet. The Essenes, like the Sufis, were the mystics of their respective traditions. According to oral tradition, they actually pre- ceded these religions. It is possible that the ancient Sufi and Essene teachings have the same pre-Noachide source. The modern Essenes represent, in the […]

Week 2-Who Were the Essenes?

The Modern Living Essene Way is a general path that resonates with the historical life and core truths of the ancient Essenes. It connects to the particular spiritual life of the prophetic, Kabbalistic mystics of the desert, known as the Essenes. It is a complete path and lineage of liberation that goes back 5,000 to 6,000 years, probably to the time of Adam, and more specifically was activated by Enoch, the seventh generation from Adam. The teachings and way of life of the Essenes were most accurately described by Flavius Josephus, the Roman historian, Pliny the Elder, and Philo, the […]

TOL Shabbat

Every Friday evening, before the sun sets, the Tree of Life community and guests gather for a unique ceremony called Shamanic Kabbalat Shabbat. The ceremony is to receive the Shabbat, a day of rest and remembrance, measured from sunset to sunset. Kabbalat simply means “to receive”, and we describe it as “shamanic” because in this ceremony, as we observe it, we honor the aboriginal roots of the great Torah tradition. We share this ceremony in the spirit of  the Torah as a universal gift to all of humanity. We begin the ceremony by honoring the four directions and dancing and […]

Week 1-The Consciousness of the Essenes

Today, the world urgently needs bridges of unity between the world’s religions, especially for brothers and sisters of Jewish and Christian back- grounds, if we are to create jointly the conditions necessary to usher in the Messianic Age. To achieve this holy state, we need to embrace the perennial truth of all paths: The Divine Presence is the essence of who we truly are. When we are blessed by this consciousness, known as deveikut in the Living Essene Way, we are living the Truth of all religions. From this Truth, which is our natural, awakened state, we begin to emanate […]
