Life is a journey….

Posted by on Dec 2, 2018 | 3 comments

Yes, that’s what I always tell people when they ask me ‘how do I do this’ or ‘how do I do that’ when referring to first coming into an understanding of the biblical roots of their faith (or anything else). “It’s a journey…..take time to B.R.E.A.T.H.E.” And it’s a phrase that I I believe in. But I have realized that everything is a journey – absolutely everything. Every step we take, every breath we draw – it is all about the journey. We are here for a purpose, even when that purpose continuously eludes us. Today is one...

Joy cometh in the morning

The Season of our Joy …. is upon us! Now…where did I put that flask of ‘joy’? Come out, come out wherever you are!!!!!! Ahhhhh…..there you are….hiding underneath the baggage of bitterness, frustration, and self-pity. Bringing out that tiny little flask I wonder….how could such a minute little bag of joy fill this empty old tired body….seems impossible for sure. So, gingerly pulling apart the frayed strings of that little flask – OUT POURS JOY!!!! And she reminds me, quite pointedly, how much I have to be thankful for….good health...

Transition to Joy

Posted by on Sep 20, 2018 | 3 comments

TRANSITION TO JOY The experience of reflection and introspection yesterday on the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippurim (Day of AT ONE MENT), was an over the top time with our King. For me, personally, it was a simple yet profound period of time simply by myself. Pondering on the events of the day, the awe that was felt throughout the time period was as if time truly stood still – just as the sages claim. In the evening of Yom Kippur and after finishing the traditional readings of “Al Chet” or the confession of sins, I pondered and looked for insight and understanding to...

Yom Kippur… At-One-Ment

Posted by on Sep 19, 2018 | 0 comments

Yes…today is the day of being AT ONE with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords… this is the day when heaven meets earth…the spark touches the source and your essence is one with the Flame. Are you asking why? Simply put, it is because the Holy One Himself told us to….no other reason than that. But I’m not a Jew! I’m not religious like that! Seriously, lady you don’t know what you’re talking about! Neither am I, nor am I religious and it’s not me talking….it’s the Great I AM. Leviticus 16:29 mandates establishment of this holy...

Are you ready for Yom Kippur?

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Are you ready? If you are asking “ready for what?” than let me explain. The Day of Atonement is the holiest day of the year for all of Judaism and is one of the Feast Days of the LORD listed in Leviticus 23. Read that last part again, one of the FEAST DAYS OF THE LORD. Yes, that’s right the Holy One Himself, (no matter what you call him – Yahovah, Yahweh, God) designed this day as one of HIS feast days and commanded all those that followed Him to honor them for eternity. Well, that about says it all – and that is what...

Elul – Day 39

Posted by on Sep 18, 2018 | 0 comments

remember, this is from Orthodoxy….allow the Ruach haKodesh to sift through the words, and speak to your heart… Tishrei 9, Erev Yom Kippur TO BE LIKE ANGELS Tonight we will begin a 25-hour fast of Yom Kippur.  We don’t do this in order to afflict ourselves, which is the purpose of the fast of Tisha B’Av when we mourn the destruction of the Temple—indeed Yom Kippur is not a day of mourning but a day of joy. We fast on Yom Kippur because on this day we want to transcend our physical limitations and be like angels, and food and other physical concerns distract us from our...
