Sweetness of the Soul

Prepare mind and heart,

bring awareness to center;

stillness in the soul.

As Rosh HaShannah approaches, preparations abound, beginning with the inner focus – searching the soul. This search began thirty days prior, with the sounding of the shofar every morning, awakening the soul to the awesome approach of the King.

The task at hand is to condition the mind to root out evil and sin. For those like myself, ba’al teshuvah, who were not raised observant, nor had the values of Torah inculcated in them, since an early age, the continual “pulling out of weeds,” if left to grow, would only cause the soul to become entangled in gashmiyos again. G-d forbid.

I have B.A. in Psychology from Temple University, and a second B.A. in English from Northern Arizona University. Additionally, I hold a certificate in psychophysical re-education from the Rubenfeld Center. My third area of academic interest is ecology. My spiritual journey, through many transitions, led me back to the Judaism of my youth, wherein my path culminated in taking the yoke of Heaven upon myself.
