Building Our Personal Relationship With The Creator

In the Torah we are taught many laws and instructions, pertaining to every area of our life. When we follow these guidances correctly, God magically fills us with Joy and peace.
It is inevitable though, that we will break these guidances, multiple times a day! The million dollar question is how do we view ourselves after we slip?

Do we view ourselves as soiled? Or do we realize that life is meant to be spontaneous and that mistakes are meant to happen?

God is a true realist, he knows our flaws, he created all of our flaws, and most importantly, he greatly enjoys the process of us slowly beginning to rectify our flaws.

God demands of us that we follow in his footsteps as it says we were created in his image and therefore it behooves us to become realists as well!

We must begin to realize that the mistakes we make are fine in the eyes of God, as without them how would we ever be able to appreciate choosing the higher alternative?!

We must begin to allow ourselves to be led fully by our hearts and our feelings!

We must cease being slaves to time and space, and instead learn how to transverse freely inside of time and space!

We MUST recognize that we have a Creator, who is always actively leading us down the paths we are meant to travel, and it is he who will provide us with the people + ideas we need in order to survive & thrive!

In order for us to find our special conscious connection with our Creator and to really begin our own unique climbs we must allow our feet to lead us towards where we must go, even if it’s not within the “plan”!

The essence of Judaism is that one must surrender their ego fully to their creator, which can only possibly be accomplished through letting go of all of our agendas.

I bless us that G!D help us find him together as one!
