When one studies Kabbalah, one realizes that there are no vowels in the Hebrew glyphs, only consonants. The original Torah was written not only without vowels but without word breaks! It was designed to require Kabbalistic meditative practices to unlock its meaning. This is why there are over 900 approved Rabbinic interpretations to the first word in Genesis, which we usually translate as "In the beginning."
Let us look at the word translated as "Holy" in the Bible. What does it mean? What is the "truth" behind Holy? In the Bible the Hebrew glyphs that are defined to be translated into the English word "Holy" are: Q D V Sh, usually transliterated as Kodoish. We will now unfold the meaning of this word by the symbolism of its glyphs. Q is the Hebrew glyph Qoph. One of its meanings is that of soundless joy. D is the Hebrew glyph Dalet. One of its meanings is that of a door. V is the Hebrew glyph Vav; one of its meanings is that it connects one thing to another. Sh is the Hebrew glyph Shin; one of its meanings is that it is a fire of purification (a supernal fire that metaphorically turns lead into gold...experience). Taking these individual symbols and stringing them together, our understanding of the word Holy could lead to: Holy means that through experiencing existence, one's consciousness eventually connects to a state of perfect bliss. This puts a whole new Light on what is Holy, doesn't it?
So what is a Holiday? A Holy Day?
