Sometimes, the weight of things brings us to our knees,
and we are forced to see the underside, and there,
the light of God is awash, breaking all principle.
I’m never left behind…..
inquiry for today~ simple hours soften us……
How will you repair a soul?
Blind yourself to the shell of mud. Dig deeply and deeper yet, sift through the darkened embers,
search for a spark that still shines. Fan that spark until a flame appears,
fall in love with the flame and despise the evil that encrusts it.
Until all is consumed in the warmth of that flame.
For empathy is the redeemer of love and the liberator of deeds that shine.
~Rabbi Tzvi Freeman
