Words of Wisdom from Rabbi Heschel ...


( It would seem that I have developed a like of many things Jewish ... and Rabbi Heschel looms large amongst this ... and so, today I would like to quote from him again:)


... prayer is no panacea, no substitute for action. I is like a beam thrown from a flashlight before us into the darkness ...

It is in this light that we grope, stumble, and climb, discover where we stand, what surrounds us, and the course which we should choose,

Prayer makes visible the right, and reveals what is hampering and false. In its radiance, we behold the worth of our efforts, the range of our hopes, and the meaning of our deeds ...

(Amen Rabbi, Amen)

This was one righteous, wise and passionate child of God! Only the true mystics know about living between the two relms of this world and the spirit world...and they bring hope and joy back to us whenever they return from their meditative or prayerful moments.
