"In my heart I know that the avoda of this pasuk is not about “becoming holy” or changing something that I am not into something that is better."
"What is unique about our tears? They are both salt & water - our tears are both the mikveh and the salt for the korban necessary to revive our souls to their unique potential and to remove the barriers between us and HaShem."
"Each one of us has to have the integrity to stop for a moment and check in. Are we present? Are we focusing on the task or the mitzvah that HaShem has put before us in order to connect to him?"
"I feel that a huge part of our avoda right now is to just love HaShem, love him with a deep yearning like never before."
"Open your hearts with me, the power of giving hope and believing in people is something ... deeper than we know because when we can truly believe in them - then they can truly believe in themselves."
"In the privacy of our home we are creating a fertile space to receive HaShem in a new way"
When we can attach to the spark no matter how small that is found hiding in the dark places then we can become the vessel that reveals the hidden light into the world.
Each one of us, when we came into this world, were given lives that were hand crafted by HaShem. He alone has taken us to our highest point and to our most challenging lows.
The covenant at Sinai was about and unconditional love and yearning between HaShem and the Jewish people. The conditions could only be understood through the lens of unconditionality - this is the seeming dichotomy that is necessary to be at peace and to continue to serve HaShem with strength and focus to fulfill our purpose in this life.
