Judaism - Higher Reality....

The great question is whether or not this world is really real. If it is, then those who would search for some higher reality are mistaken. If this world is illusory - bit a screen for some higher order of being - then there is more to reality than meets the eye. And we have settled for some illusory treasure and given up searching for the king.

Judaism is a more or less organized way of remembering that every mystery points to a higher reality. A reality overarching and infusing this world with splendor. One pulsing through its veins. Unnoticed and unnamed. Of the Nameless One. A holiness so holy that it filles even our everyday illusions with spiritual meaning.
