Religion is at its best when it makes us ask hard questions of ourselves.

It is at its worst when it deludes us into thinking we have all the answers for everybody else.

~Archibald Macleish

when I realize how to stop fixing everything….

inquiry for today~ what came over you?

“How will you fix a soul?

A soul doesn’t need fixing. It needs to be uncovered.

Blind yourself to its muddy crust. Dig deeply and deeper yet, sift through the darkened embers,

search for a spark that still shines. Fan that spark until a flame appears,

find the mitzvah that will serve as its oil and wick. Until all is consumed in the warmth of that flame.

For empathy is the redeemer of love, and love is the mother of all good deeds.

~Rabbi Tzvi Freeman
