Today….right now…..it is the new moon of the month of Elul. It is the start of what is called the 40 days of Teshuvah.
I was 22 years of age when I was introduced to God. I was at one of my lowest points in my life; Confused, Lost, Feeling Hopeless and Helpless.
Someone took me aside and took me outside on a beautiful November day in New York. It was warm for November, the sun was shining and the last leaves on the trees were ready to fall. This person asked me if I “believed” in God. I said I was not sure. I told him I wanted to but I had no clue. He pointed out to me how everything around us was in perfect harmony and for a brief moment I saw it! It was a fleeting moment but I saw it and I felt it and I knew it. I saw the creative intelligence behind everything…….even my suffering.
Well…..since that time, I have been on a journey seeking this creative intelligence for answers and for direction. It has certainly been a roller coaster ride and a lot of the time I seemed to live in the world of forgetfulness.
Today, I am turning back. Today, I am re-turning to this “Force of Creativity.” The King is in the Field……..
