Can you hear me?

Friday, 3 August, 2018 - 3:36 pm

Shema Yisroel, Listen oh Israel. In the Parsha last week and this week, Hashem asks us to listen. We say  it every day in daily prayers and before we go to bed.

Mindfulness is to hear the pulse of the world around us. 

People share so much wisdom, but have a hard time listening. As Rabbi Jonathan Sacks puts it, "When we speak, we tell others who and what we are. But when we listen, we allow others to tell us who they are."  If we can’t listen to other people, then we certainly can’t listen to Hashem.

Rather than filter out social media and real friends who speak and think differently than us, let's give ourselves the gift of listening. Not only does it make us wiser, it also trains us to have the humility to listen to Hashem, transform ourselves even when not convenient, and be more spiritual as a result.

Have a Good Shabbos of Listening!
