Returning to the Ultimate:  Ourselves and God

"Great is repentance, for it reaches the Throne of Glory;… for it brings Redemption;…for it lengthens a man’s life." -- Talmud, Yoma

26 Elul 5777 What ideas, feelings, and actions will we now take out into the world during the coming days and year?  What are our plans for personal and social development?  How can you use these Elul contemplations to help achieve a wider perspective and to be more understanding and loving of yourself and others?

23 Elul 5777 How have you struggled with God?  What are your doubts?  How has God answered?  Possibly the answers were not in ways you had anticipated or even what you thought or hoped you would receive.  Let’s write about our difficulties in working through our covenant with God.

22 Elul 5777 How would you like to know God better?  What do you think you need to do to open yourself further to God?  How might you implement these notions in your life during the coming days?  Again, let’s jot these ideas down for future reference.

21 Elul 5777 How do you best know God?  Do you feel a close personal relationship?  Or perhaps you take inspiration from natural beauty like a sunset in the desert?  Maybe you see the Divine in people in the ways that communities act together for the benefit of all?  Perhaps you know God best through art?  Or through sport, dance, and movement?  Do you meet God in quiet times, alone away from the world?  Is God most accessible through study and prayer?  You might have your own special way.  Or you might feel the God is closer than your breath and always available.  Today, let’s write or create something to document your preferred modalities.

20 Elul 5777 Let’s consider these words from Psalm 24:

Who shall ascend into the mountain of the Lord? And who shall stand in His holy place?

He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not taken My name in vain, and hath not sworn deceitfully.

He shall receive a blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

David, The Psalmist, poses a question and answers it.  Despite the traditional pronouns, how do you see yourself fitting into the answer?  As we approach the Days of Awe, how will you make these words more and more your own?  How will these words translate into your thoughts, words, and deeds?
