"Here is a secret to the wise. Within the strong rock, which is the world of Briyah, in the hidden firmament, above every other firmament there, there is a certain chamber called the chamber of love, which is situated underneath the Holy of Holies of Briyah. There are hidden treasures there, and all the kisses of the king’s love are there. All the souls beloved of the king enter there." - Zohar 10:3:61

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"When we are in the physical world, we must learn to be awake from moment to moment. We then live awakened and self-conscious from moment to moment in the internal worlds, both during the hours of the sleep of the physical body and also after death."
