Thurs, Nov 28 – Wed, Dec 4, 2019

Thursday, November 28, 2019 – 30 Cheshvan 5780 – Thanksgiving

Toledot: Genesis 25:19-28:9

Have you ever felt so full you could not move?  You may have felt so full of food you could not eat, so full of thoughts you could not think, so full of noise you could not hear, so full of data you could not respond clearly.  When you feel overstuffed, overwhelmed, and overwrought, it is time to go empty and start anew.  (Intention, p. 35)

Friday, November 29, 2019 – 1 Kislev 5780

Toledot: Genesis 25:19-28:9

Esau discovers the deception, and cries, “Have you not reserved a blessing for me?”

How often do you diminish the moment to save for something later?  How often do you hold back from giving fully in fear that you will not have enough for the next time?  When you believe that God loves you always, unconditionally, then you can trust God’s love, which becomes a template for how you can love others.  (Compassion, p. 120) 

Saturday, November 30, 2019 – 2 Kislev 5780

Toledot: Genesis 25:19-28:9

Jacob leaves Beer Sheba, and sets out for Haran.

With strength and discernment comes the need to pause, stop, remember your goal and its intention, and reevaluate your direction.  (Strength, p. 151)

Sunday, December 1, 2019 – 3 Kislev 5780

Toledot: Genesis 25:19-28:9

Spend some time today in silence.  Utilize the silence when chatter dispels calmness, problems avoid solutions, and noise breaks concentration.  In silence, the ego is still and the soul echoes your entrance into the inner chambers of God.  (Intention, p. 51)

Monday, December 2, 2019 – 4 Kislev 5780

Vayetzei: Genesis 28:10-32:3

Jacob dreams of a ladder, with the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

Whether awake or asleep, you ascend and descend the spiritual ladder of life embraced, lifted, and  held by the wings of God.  If you want to travel on the wings of their spirit and ascend the ladder, all you have to do is to intend it.  (Intention, p. 56)

Tuesday, December 3, 2019 – 5 Kislev 5780

Vayetzei: Genesis 28:10-32:3

Jacob resumes his journey, sees Rachel, and kisses her.

The Talmud teaches there are three things that revive a person’s spirit: beautiful sounds, sights, and smells.  To be able to see, hear, taste, touch, and smell beauty in everything is awesome yet inspiring.  When you can accept the beauty in everything and move beyond that to endowing everything with beauty, everything you come in contact with becomes beautiful because you have made it so.  (Harmony, p. 200)

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 – 6 Kislev 5780

Vayetzei: Genesis 28:10-32:3

Rachel is beautiful, but her sister, Leah, is not fair to look upon.

Can you look beyond the facade of another and empower that person’s beauty?  Can you see beyond the affects and defects in others and accept them as part of the beauty of yourself, the wonders of nature, and the miracle of love?  (Harmony, p. 200)
