  • Poem for Redemption

    Is the root of worship fear? A primitive response to mystery?

    Love the closest worldly expression to that which is more than worldly,
    Connection dances around truth to loose to be worthy,
    Oneness was the revelation,
    One is Hashem

    By Yeshaia Blakeney
