Shabbat Intentions - Be Holy

You shall be holy, the Infinite calls, because the Unfolding of All Life is holy.

The soul cries, it sobs, the world is so broken.

There is so much pain.

What can I possibly do?

The Infinite replies: Be holy.

Honor the elders.

Honor creation.

Feed people.

Be mindful of your words.

Treat each other fairly.

Meet each person with dignity.

Do not act from anger or hate.


And, most importantly, love.

Love with your words and actions.

Love as much as you can.

And when you can’t love,

When you fall short and go astray,

Forgive yourself and forgive others,

And return to love.


You are holy.

All life is holy

All the earth is holy.

Love as best as you can.
