There is a Love that binds
me to You.
And in the Joy of this rapture,
in my submission complete,
I want only to be more tightly bound.
I want to sway in Your arms,
to bend to Your Will,
to rest secure in this unending Love.
I’ve no wish to flee
or chase material desires.
I can’t pretend that “rational = True.”
So I’ll study these texts
and complete tasks as assigned,
inside this Love that binds me to You.
This Shabbat, may we all have moments when we are acutely aware of our connection to Gd, and may that awareness help us rest secure in Gd’s unending Love, so that we might offer compassion and peace to others.
Shabbat shalom to all, jen
There are many truths,
but none of them is Truth,
so the only answer is Love.
We must summon compassion
when we least think we can
and offer it to those
who think that we won’t.
For then bridges are built,
one person to another,
that will carry us all to Heaven.
None of them is right or wrong. All of them contain Truth and offer an opportunity to see holiness unfolding. It’s just a matter of perspective and focus.
The same is no less true when we interact with other people. They are not “standing” where we stand, and their “focus” may not be where ours is. It doesn’t make their “snapshot” of a moment wrong. Only different.
This week, may we be cognizant of our perspectives, and may we have more patience for the perspectives of others.
