Last Chance for Purim to Pesach – and No Internet? Is That a Joke?

If you haven’t already signed up for prayers for this amazing period, what are you waiting for?

Purim through Pesach is an incredibly powerful time filled with the revelation of Hashem, and the potential to transform our character and soul.   Through restriction –  cutting out the unnecessary, the things that inflate our egos and false-selves, we become free to be the core of what we are.  Free to pursue and focus on that which truly is our life purpose and gives us simcha rather than the things that distract and take us away from our goals.

Recently I lost internet access for many months.

Can you imagine being without internet for several months?  If you can, hats off to you.  If you can’t, then join the crowd.

On the one hand, it was frustrating.  Work took much longer.  I had to travel to get anything done.  On the other hand, the amount of extra time it gave me at home was unbelievably liberating.  All of a sudden I had so much more free time.  Instead of naturally turning on the news, I had to find other things to do to fill my down-times.

What happened was that I gravitated to things that actually truly fed my life purpose.  I wrote.  I created.  I organized.  I ‘hung out’ with my older kids.  More than uncomfortable, it was truly freeing and liberating… allowing me to be free to focus on the real things in life.  That’s Pesach.  We cut out the things we don’t really need and are left with the basics of life.  How grounding.

For this, we need prayers and Hashem’s help.

May the Creator of the Universe answer all of our combined prayers and may you be liberated from that which enslaves you so that you can be free to do that which makes your soul truly happy!

With love and blessings from the place where heaven meets earth!
