See Me and Live
In this week's Torah portion, the Mystery reveals itself and says:
I will show myself beyond anything that has ever been seen,
I will show myself beyond anything that has ever been imagined,
That has ever been known.
And you will have no doubt
You will feel it in your whole being
And you will know it is me.
The soul is unsure and it cries out in desperation.
The heart is broken and it wails in fear.
The One answers, Reach for me where ever you are.
You will find me as you open yourselves to each other,
As you widen the circle and let each other in.
You will find me in pain, sadness and despair,
When you turn toward your fears you will see me and know.
And I will appear in freedom and hope and possibility
I will call to you with love.
The road is long, wide and narrow,
The signs sometimes treacherous and frightening.
But I am here,
And will be forever.
See me and Live.
-- Rabbi Yael Levy
