About Us

Beginning within is all about repeatedly asking ourselves the one question that always matters, “What can I do about this situation?” Beginning within is about changing the one person we can change. Beginning within is about learning that by transforming ourselves we transform the world.

161 True Reconciliation

If you're apologizing because you feel bad, are uncomfortable or don't want to be disliked, you haven't apologized. It's all about you. So when you show up to synagogue and want to experience true repentance, stop thinking about yourself and what you want and how you feel bad. Take a few minutes and think about G-d.

160 Life Is a Workshop

Everything we experience in life offers us an opportunity to refine ourselves and become a better person. This is the reason G-d created an imperfect world with challenges and tests. Every test is an opportunity to raise ourselves higher. And it can't be realized without us going through the process. Life is, after all, a workshop.

159 Is Your Spouse Like G-d?

Is your spouse like G-d? In more ways than you may want to admit. The correlations between your relationship with your spouse and your relationship with G-d are strikingly similar. This is because, at their core, they are both a relationship. There's much we can learn from the correlations between the two. I share six points. Can you think of any more?

158 Is Equality Good?

Sometimes our society begins revering a word and making it sacred, no longer analyzing its virtues. Equality is one such word. Is equality a good thing? Not necessarily. There are different forms of equality. While one form builds a society, another form destroys it.

157 When You’re In a Dark Place

We all find ourselves in a dark place at different points in our life. A place of despair and hopelessness. A place from which there seems to be no hope. What we must remember is that the moon is darkest when it is closest to the sun. A dark place is never far from light.

156 Would You Force Your Child To?

We all know how difficult it is to exercise self-discipline. This is why when we are raised with discipline it makes it so much easier. Structure and limits become ingrained within us. When we raise our children without structure and limits, when we are a yes parent, we aren't being nice. We are being very, very mean. Why? Our children will suffer greatly from this later in life. As difficult as it is for a parent to implement structure and limits, it's far more difficult to later in life.

155 Better the Sin You Know

To be able to acknowledge our wrongdoings is far better than denying them. You can only fix what you are willing to face. When we are denial, we leave ourselves little hope. This is why knowing the problem is half the solution. No one can be blamed for being imperfect, we all are. We can be blamed for not dealing with our imperfections.

154 Are You Too Materialistic?

You own a car. You live in a nice home. You have a closet full of clothing. Are you too materialistic? If materialistic was defined by using material objects, yes, but this isn't what makes someone materialistic. Materialistic is a shallow world view. It's when we only value appreciate things and people for their material aspect without appreciating and engaging their deeper aspect and true value. Now ask yourself, are you materialistic?

153 Operate in a Higher Paradigm

Our belief system will always determine the limits we impose on ourselves. Shifting our paradigm can significantly shift our limitations. When we're willing to take the leap of faith from a world paradigm to a creator paradigm we expand possibility enormously!

152 The Soul of the Matter

To all matter there is spirit just as each body has a soul. Meaning is experienced when we learn to connect with the spirit of the matter. This requires effort to see beyond the facade of the body and the matter. This is the path to leading deeper and more meaningful lives.
