New Post on the Sands at the Shore New Post In case you haven’t visited the seashore lately, there is a new pathway post about the sand at the shore on the new and growing Gateway of the Sea, where you will also find videos, images, and Torah study about oceans and seas. 1 Comment Wendy on 29 March 2017 at 11:35 pm Staying in Tel Aviv for a month & it’s the first time in many years that I have lived near the sea. Comparing it to the Pacific Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea is calm, warm, deeply turquoise. It is inviting and alluring in a way that the Pacific –cold, wild, dangerous– is not. On a spiritual level, two things resonate: One, the vibrant blue-green color is jolting & amazing but cannot be described in words (or photographs). It is a metaphor for the vastness and unity of the Universe (uni=oneness) that is beyond our verbal abilities, yet it can be experienced by our senses.. Also, the warm, gentle waters are just-salty enough to let us feel buoyant, supported, & encompassed, as we are in the womb and by the vast, loving Universe.
