Mesilat Yesharim 1 3

It is essential that we do the actions that are building blocks of the future we want to see. The practice, and the future want to see, cannot be separated.

Mesilat Yesharim 1 3

The Direct Path

Here we look at Ramchal's expression of what the purpose of our being is. And it is NOT austere. And it is NOT waiting for marshmallows. It is far more compelling, and far more inviting.

The Direct Path

The Direct Path

In this first installment of The Direct Path, we clarify: the possibilities are truly infinite. The path to those possibilities is crystal clear. The word is hard. And it starts with clarifying the question, "What, exactly, is our obligation in our world?"

The Direct Path

Do You Want to Ascend?

A person might notice that they are not bringing their full selves to their Service - that they are distracted, or don't care. Or maybe a person is operating on a very old model of "what God is" and this old model is genuinely (and thankfully) uninspiring. Time for an Olah.

Do You Want to Ascend?

Ways to come close

The book of Vayikra - Levitticus - describes, in great detail, the actions called korbanot, usually mistranslated as sacrifices. These descriptions contain far more than descriptions of the ritual slaughter of animals; they contain eternal guidance that can inform how we come close to Hashem today.

Pesach in the time of Corona

Preparing for Purim

Esther invited the king and Haman to a party.... and then invited them to another party, at which she finally told Achashveirosh that Haman's plot was against her own people. The reason why she didn't tell the king at the first party is because she knew how to do "Hamten" - "Wait."

Preparing for Purim

Multiple Angles of Seduction

As Purim approaches, I focus on the moment when, after Haman leads Mordecai through the streets of Shushan and declares "This is what the king does for a man whom he wishes to honor!" Mordecai immediately goes back to his sackcloth and fasting. By not falling for this surface-level king-moment he taps into what Rebbe Nachman describes as the kingship rooted beyond the surface.

From Beyond Yourself

Music is not simple. It seems to different from reading a newspaper or a text book, but it delivers all kinds of messages just the same. Unfortunately, we need to be able to sort out different tones and messages within the media we are absorbing, because the people providing it are affected by their own influences, and we need to know how far it goes up.

We need leaders - and we need to be leaders - who can draw inspiration from outside of and beyond themselves. We must be able to learn, listen, assert, rethink, grow.
