Thurs, Nov 8 – Wed, Nov 14, 2018

Thursday, November 8, 2018 – 30 Cheshvan 5779

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) 

Friday, November 9, 2018 – 1 Kislev 5779

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)

Saturday, November 10, 2018 – 2 Kislev 5779

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)

Sunday, November 11, 2018 – 3 Kislev 5779

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)

Monday, November 12, 2018 – 4 Kislev 5779

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)

Tuesday, November 13, 2018 – 5 Kislev 5779

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)

Wednesday, November 14, 2018 – 6 Kislev 5779

Vayetzei: Genesis 28:10-32:3

Jacob is tricked into marrying the older sister, Leah, then takes Rachel for his beloved wife.

Look for the mystery behind the obvious and discern the truth beneath the veil of illusion.  (Strength, p. 153)
