Foundation within Foundation

Or, perhaps, Foundation UPON Foundation. Some of you, my readers, know that I used to teach Architecture and Planning. In those fields, it was essential to know, in details, how each component of a building’s foundation functioned. Forces were carefully calculated, materials specified and details designed for stability, strength and appropriate flexibility for the soil conditions, building use, weather, etc. Today, we focus on the spiritual equivalent. Our inner structures are also made up on individual parts which we develop and nurture over the course of our lives. Under all, above all, and throughout all of these elements is the Element of the Divine, the ultimate support and design. Our individual spirits are the building blocks out of which G-d is fashioning the world each moment.
