Good Shabbos!

"Geulah is not a destination you can see by looking in front of you.  You can only see it by looking inside of you"
(Rabbi Jacobson)

Parshas Ki Seitzei:

If you see your brother's ox or sheep must surely return them to your brother" (22:1)

Chacham Ovadiah Yosef shlit"a says this Pasuk is a call for action.

If you see the soul of your brother detached from its source, you cannot ignore it.  Rather, you must help bring him back to the source.  Each of us in our own way. (Torah Tavlin2)

How do we do this?  

step 1. By looking inside ourselves and finding our unique gift that Hashem has given us.

Step 2: offer to share it with others.

In our search inward this Elul may we all receive clarity from Hashem of what our true destination is.

love, aviva rus
