Thursday, July 19, 2018 – 7 Av 5778

Devarim: Deuteronomy 1:1 – 3:22

Become aware of your thoughts, words and actions today.  Notice which come with difficulty and which with ease; what distracts you and what engages your interest and feels wholesome in your body; what feels distant and what brings you closer to serving the will of God.  (Success, p. 223)

Friday, July 20, 2018 – 8 Av 5778

Devarim: Deuteronomy 1:1 – 3:22

“It is now forty years Adonai, your God, is accompanying you, you have lacked nothing.”

You were created to walk lightly, play joyfully, and soar abundantly with the Creator of this universe.  (Creativity, p. 228)

Saturday, July 21, 2018 – 9 Av 5778

Devarim: Deuteronomy 1:1 – 3:22

Moses recaps the many battles and conquests along the way.

The power you give away is a power of illusion.  The real power is not in your ego; it is in your divinity.  That power is eternal.  (Glory, p. 242)

Sunday, July 22, 2018 – 10 Av 5778 – Tisha b’Av

Va’etchanan: Deuteronomy 3:23 – 7:11

This day is Tisha b’Av, a day of mourning for the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem by Babylon and by Rome.  It is a Memorial Day for all people thrown into exile…

The Shekhina, the feminine essence of God, dwells inside each person and is as close to you as your breath.  And in a world dominated by outside influences, She too feels exiled and beyond your reach.  When you reunite with the Shekhina, you ascend nearer to God and uncover the immanence of God in every aspect of life.  (Wisdom, p. 78)

Monday, July 23, 2018 – 11 Av 5778

Va’etchanan: Deuteronomy 3:23 – 7:11

Let go of the way you think things ought to be, and open to a more expansive, dynamic, organic view of the way things are.  (Method, p. 24)

Tuesday, July 24, 2018 – 12 Av 5778

Va’etchanan: Deuteronomy 3:23 – 7:11

Moses tells the Israelites, “You who cling to God, all of you are alive today.”

The state of being attached to God is called devekut.  Devekut is the process of merging with the Divine, going beyond yourself and your self-imposed boundaries.  Devekut is an intimacy in which all thoughts and ideas are transparent between you and God.  It is seeing God through the same eyes that God sees you through.  (Creativity, p. 285)

Wednesday, July 25, 2018 – 13 Av 5778

Va’etchanan: Deuteronomy 3:23 – 7:11

If you search for the Lord, your God, you will find God, if you seek God with all your heart and soul…..

You see, hear, and know God in your own experience rather than in another’s knowledge or language.  In mystical Judaism, God is a direct experience of a direct relationship.  Another cannot bring God to you more authentically than you can on your own.  (Understanding, p. 99)
