The Light

Being the Heschel-Freak I am, I've likely posted this before, but I think its worth a rerun:

"God is not a hypothesis derived from logical assumptions, but an immediate insight, self-evident as light. He is not something to be sought in the darkness with the light of reason. He is the light."
- Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

i think thats a true observation that anyone of any "God-based" religion should be able to agree with.

The background image on this page is a Hebrew translation of the verse from Bob Dylan's song  It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding), from which the title of this blog is taken. Translation courtesy of Yoram Aharon of Hod-HaSharon's page--found via YudelLine-- which has many Dylan lyrics in Hebrew.
