The word “believe” suggests that there is a choice for us.
We can choose to believe something, or someone.
We can choose to believe IN something, or someone.
Yet the most important beliefs for me are not an option. I don’t know HOW to not believe them, to not believe in them.
Teaching is the best job in the world, and children are the best co-workers in the world.
People hold immeasurable potential.
Science, nature and mathematics will never cease to provide amazement and wonder.
There is a higher power. Whatever form people say it takes, something unites the universe on a deeper level.
Elul is that time of the year to reflect and prepare ourselves mentally for the High Holidays approaching. Each day of Elul, I’ll reflect on a theme and invite you to come along on that journey. Feel free to comment with your reflections on the theme, post your own blog or Facebook thoughts, or just quietly give yourself a bit of spiritual space.
