Idle Thoughts

The tent was full for the Sabbath Eve service. The High Priest, Malachizer, had finished his sermon and gestured for Devorah to give her remarks.  “There is no such thing as an ‘idle’ thought,” Devorah said, gesturing inclusively. “All of you know I live in this world with you; but that I see it and experience it differently.” A murmur of ascent. “Malachizer, our good High Priest, sees it one way as do most of you, I see it another. The way most people see and experience the world, the traditional way embodied in the Law and the Scrolls, is that the world is real and outside us. It is and we react to it.
“The other way of seeing and experiencing the world, the non-traditional way that I call the Covenant, is that the world is not real, but a product of our thoughts...."
