Tonight begins a fast day for me; Yom Kippur. For the Jewish people, it is the holiest day in the year. We fast on Yom Kippur to transcend ourselves to the level of angels. This is a day where we truly tap into our true selves, our souls. The fast is 26 hours; most of that time is spent in prayer, connecting ourselves to G-dliness andâ€¦well, ourselves. For 26 hours, we give up a part of our physical in order to hone into our true selves.
Tapping into the essence of who we are, is an important component of discovering what is important in our lives. Truth resonates and when we hear it, we know. Having a guide helps us to open our own pathway to the truth within. Itâ€™s not so hard to do, once we get rid of all the mental clutter.
How do you do it? Start with taking a deep breath, smile (even if you donâ€™t feel like it), get out a paper and write a listâ€¦from there itâ€™s easy. One step at a time is all it takes, and believe me, you WILL reach your goal.
