Moving Outward:  Ourselves and Others

"It is cruel not to forgive one who begs for forgiveness." -- Rashi

9 Elul 5777 Do you need to make amends to anyone?  The word “anyone” includes yourself.  What can you do to be kinder and more accepting in the future?  What can you do to improve a relationship?  Let’s turn to both writing and to action to help us work on these.

Moving Outward:  Ourselves and Others

"It is cruel not to forgive one who begs for forgiveness." -- Rashi

8 Elul 5777 Forgiveness is the mysterious portal to redemption.  Can you forgive yourself for any shortcomings?  Can you write down your feelings and your learning?  Can you find peace within yourself?

Starting with Ourselves 

Though the righteous one may fall seven times, he will arise. – King Solomon (Proverbs 24:16)

In Jewish thinking, a great person isn’t one who never fails; it’s one who fails and keeps trying. You can only become a truly great person through the crucible of failure and perseverance.

7 Elul 5777 Let’s honor ourselves by not feeling guilty or ashamed for anything we discovered yesterday.  Can you talk to yourself, God, and another trusted person about your determinations on Day 6?  You are forming a team leading to wisdom.  By sharing something challenging with another person, you will realize that whatever is bothering you is a platform for personal growth.  Your listener will not shame you or make you feel small or guilty.  What has this experience taught you?  Would you care to write about this experience?

6 Elul 5777 Are there parts of yourself that are hard to acknowledge?  Have you been angry or depressed?  Have you been petty, or have you lacked reverence?  Have you forgotten to honor your body?  What would you like to write about these scratchy parts of yourself?
