Every next step is a journey
Is realizing a great truth a religious experience?
I asked Professor Reines this question 40 years ago. Who were the individuals within the Jewish continuum who changed the paradigm of thought for the world? The answer was: Moses, Moses Maimonides, Spinoza, Moses Mendelssohn, Marx, Freud and Einstein! This truth was accompanied by a racing heart, a pounding pulse and my hands trembled. The truth be told!
That experience – on the uncanny side – led me to the spiritual path, the visual path and to the path of many mystical encounters.
