23rd Day of the Omer
TO MOVE FORWARD, YOU MUST BE STILL
You must pull back from always doing and periodically fold into simply being.
Like a compass that always searches for the north, constantly search for your center. Take the time to listen to your inner voice, to quiet your mind, to still the external chatter. Breathe, think and breathe some more.

The religious duty of the Jew is to participate
in the process of continuous redemption,
