Thurs, July 30 – Wed, August 5, 2020

Thursday, July 30, 2020 – 9 Av 5780 – 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)

Friday, July 31, 2020 – 10 Av 5780

Va’etchanan: Deuteronomy 3:23 – 7:11

“Shema Yisrael Adonai Elohainu Adonai Echad.”  “Hear, O Israel, the Lord is Our God, the Lord is One.”

In the place where you are most open and life affirming, recognize that you and God are one.  (Creativity, p. 286)

Saturday, August 1, 2020 – 11 Av 5780

Va’etchanan: Deuteronomy 3:23 – 7:11

“You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.  Take these words to heart…..”

When speaking in private or in public, your words are garments for the soul and tender the interchange between thought and action.  When you lie down and when you rise up, weld your spirit to God and witness what your mouth speaks.  (Glory, p. 260)

Sunday, August 2, 2020 – 12 Av 5780

Ekev: Deuteronomy 7:12 – 11:25

For obedience to God’s rules, the Lord will maintain the covenant made with the Fathers.

As we move beyond the old paradigm of God as a hierarchical judge sitting on a throne, you find a more contemporary, helpful Infinite Source.  There is an unconditionally loving, accepting, joyous, and playful God who is hiding within you.  With God as your partner, you design your life with dignity, embellish your environment with beauty, and embody your actions with goodness.  (Glory, p. 244)

Monday, August 3, 2020 – 13 Av 5780

Ekev: Deuteronomy 7:12 – 11:25

It takes courage to live fully.  With all that is available to you from the many realms of experience and the worlds within worlds, it takes courage to select for yourself and become responsible for your choices.  (Harmony, p. 184)

Tuesday, August 4, 2020 – 14 Av 5780

Ekev: Deuteronomy 7:12 – 11:25

The Lord will love, protect, bless, and multiply the people, and they will prosper.

Increase your awareness of how it feels to house a pure soul and to stay open and receive God’s beauty, love, and abundance throughout the day.  (Intention, p. 42)

Wednesday, August 5, 2020 – 15 Av 5780

Ekev: Deuteronomy 7:12 – 11:25

Moses reminds the people that God led them 40 years in the wilderness, in order to oppress them, test them, and know what was in their hearts.

You may not always be conscious of the infinite love that surrounds you; however, as you consider the things that have come into your life, know that God brought them all to you.  The supports and the challenges, the obvious blessings and the miracles hidden in the shadows are all from the love of God.  (Compassion, p. 119)
