The Mystery Reveals Itself, Parshat Yitro

                                    A desert morning.

                The earth shakes,

                 Lightening roars,

                 Thunder flashes,

           The mountain breathes fire.

shofar calls shattering everything that has been known, assumed, understood,  witnessed, planned.

                        “I”, “we”, “you”, “us” disappear.

                                    There is only One.     

                                         Only One. 

Then the wind returns, a bird flies, the mountain quiets

            And the soul is stirred awake.

And Knows absolutely                                                                                             That the Oneness is revealed through the many,

The One comes through our differences and the unique unfolding of all life. 

And the soul makes a promise:

Shema. Veahafta.  I will listen deeply into the heart of all things.

 And I will respond to all beings with Love.

Rabbi Yael at Search for Meaning Festival in Seattle February 25th

Image relating to [title]

As life unfolds, we create relationships and become attached.  These deep connections give our lives meaning. And because everything passes, because we are each here for a limited time, we are always letting go. 

How do we live fully with this awareness?

How do we love in the face of loss?

How do we stay open to joy and sadness?

Psalms intertwined with mystical teachings guide the practice of Jewish Mindfulness, providing support as we face the truth of impermanence.
