With arms wide open,
I embrace the Source of creation,
seeking His renewal for my soul,
my highest calling.
Yet, if I am only for my own tikkun,
then of what avail am I to anyone?
And, unless I seek to reach out
to family, friends, and strangers,
then, who will share words of wisdom with me,
when my soul needs to be refreshed?
Care in the heart of a man boweth it down;Proverbs 12:25
But a good word maketh it glad.
And, if I wait patiently, to hear with my own ear,
the right word spoken to me from mankind,
or the enlightening passage on a page,
turned to the most opportune spot,
then, I will wait in hope and expectation,
until my heart learns what is needed to know.
Bringing forth joy in the moment,
to have my spirits uplifted,
and my soul restored,
through divine coincidence.
