By Rabbi Karyn D. Kedar
We dwell in possible incompatible worlds—rational and non secular.
How do we preserve our stability?
Like the dolphin who exists in either water and air, so needs to we learn how to dwell and thrive in conflicting worlds—the rational, fabric, daily craziness of existence as opposed to the nonetheless, non secular soulfulness of our private selves. Balancing the two—difficult because it usually can be—is the main to our non secular survival.
Through poignant tales, religious educating and insights, Karyn Kedar stocks with us the methods we can combine the everyday—family, paintings, own challenges—with our quest for deeper non secular knowing. She is helping us to decode the 3 “languages” we needs to learn how to weave the likely traditional and impressive jointly:
- Prayer—The direction during which our souls hook up with the Divine.
- Perspective—How we outline life’s twists and turns, and the way our phrases and activities outline the standard of our lives.
- Meaning—The quest to appreciate and make feel of all that turns out incompatible.
In swish methods, Kedar indicates us that by way of knowing the relationship among the standard and the awe-inspiring, we will be able to synchronize our hearts with the methods of the area and reside with pleasure, a feeling of calm and larger function.
