Did you know that we OFTEN mistake our emotions FOR G-D’S VOICE? How many times have you ‘heard and obeyed’ (shama!) YOUR OWN VOICE? That is YOUR own CURRENT STATE OF EMOTIONS YOUR OWN ATTITUDES – YOUR OWN DESIRES – YOUR OWN APPETITES?
It will only be in our individual and collective ‘TURNING ASIDE TO SEE’ that we can begin LOVING ADONAI ELOHEINU with our ENTIRE MINDS…
– followed by LOVING HIM with our ENTIRE ATTITUDES, ALL EMOTIONS, ALL OUR APPETITES, DESIRES – culminating in LOVING HIM with ALL OUR ‘VERY’. This IS THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT!
How about you? Are you CURRENTLY LOVING HIM with your ENTIRE MIND? How about LOVING HIM WITH YOUR ATTITUDE? That’s your ‘framework’…HE CAME TO HEAL THAT, TOO! And it’s all going to START with TURNING ASIDE TO SEE with our minds. What will that look like for your IN PRACTICE TODAY?
One day at a time…
“…the principal matter is not study [of the Torah], but practice” (Pirke Avot 1.17).
