Morning Meditation Sit 2018-07-12

We sit this week looking toward Tisha B’Av—the fast day on the 9th of Av, which we observe next Saturday evening and Sunday. This season calls to be aware of the hatred that grows in your heart.

Hatred can so easily take root—it finds justification and energy—and it only leads to destruction and ruin. This is a time to practice radical empathy and to make a commitment to see the humanity in all, even in those with whom we deeply disagree. 

Together we will sit calling forth the wells of compassion.

—Rabbi Yael Levy
