Hashkama Minyan - Rabbi Blanchard's Blurb

  • In our world of so many different and opposite kinds of things, is there an underlying unity? For the Greeks,  maybe water, maybe matter, or maybe mind. Or, for the more mystically inclined, the creative, world-ordering presence of the Divine. In our own lives as well we may ask:  Is there any way to bring together our many different wants, goals, drives, interests, theories and perceptions? Is there somehow a "unity", a unifying task, purpose or goal to our existence?  Such unity seems to require a conjunction of opposites--different things somehow paradoxically actually being the same. And it is not not very easy for us to see how even the Creator of the world would be able to achieve such a joining of opposites. How is it, then, that we seem to live in one world and in many worlds all at the same time?
