This is part prayer, part insight, part inspiration. It’s about the yearning for a certain kind of nobility that comes from allowing G-d’s gifts to enter our hearts, the kind of nobility that requires self-confidence, self-care and self-discipline. This meditation will appear in my forthcoming book: The Song of the Spiritual Traveler.
Unlock Your Heart
Unlock your heart,
Open the gates
So your soul may enter.
Let the spark of holiness
And the gift of humanity
Meet in the core of your being.
Let the echo of the ages
And the yearning for tomorrow
Sing a duet of eternity.
Then, dear sisters and brothers,
Your hands will become a fountain of blessings,
And your eyes will become wells of love.
Your words will resonate with Torah,
And your deeds will glorify G-d’s Holy Name.
