Working with people all over the world on their book projects, I have the privilege of hearing their hopes and dreams and goals. It's such a privilege!
When I got these words from one of my teachers this week, I was just elated because they spoke directly to my professional and personal opportunities to see others as God sees them. And, naturally, to see myself as God sees me as well.
In other words, we can all begin to have this enlightened perspective when, "....we understand how G-d sees us, which includes the past, the
present and the future, all at the same time. He IS, he WAS and he WILL BE.
That is who he is. That is his name, and that is his essence, or at least it is
the essence that we can grasp."
This is something I will be working on the rest of my life, that's for sure. Remembering the Holy Name in my real life circumstances, and remembering what it means TO ME, what it means in my relationships with others, is the basic challenge of humanity, isn't it? It is the basic message of Torah living in us, in our everyday lives.
