Summer Work...Leading Into ELUL
Sometimes we have to go back to the basics when life seems out of control. At least, that's what I have to do in those moments.
I heard a shiur by Rabbi Sonnenshein called Connecting to Hashem about the work of Shavuous, but I think he's teaching the basics that will help us now - help us slice through the murky thoughts and hone in on practical possibilities.
Here are some questions to ask ourselves before Elul and just notice if any answers pop into your head (could be your intuition-bina:):
1. How can I notice Hashem in my life?
2. How do I find out what He wants from me?
3. What is a midah (emotion) that keeps coming up for me that I can work on?
4. My life is meaningful because... another way to phrase this is: How am I a shaliach (messenger) for Hashem?
I hope to tackle these one at a time in the coming weeks.
