Parshat Bo 5778

The Mystery calls:

Come towards what is difficult,
Come towards what is painful, what is frightening
And I will be there.

The soul cowers, it cries, I don’t want to … I am so afraid.

I know, the Mystery responds. But the only way out is through,
And I will be there with you.
Allow your heart to be broken open
By the suffering and sadness of life.
I am in those broken pieces. I am in the shattering.
And I will be with you as you find your way through.

We step into the dark to arrive to a new day.
May we take each other’s hands
And let the bonds of relationship and commitment
Guide our way.
Shabbat Shalom to all.

-- Rabbi Yael Levy
