Daily Chabad ~ Be Real

light thru treesWhat is your job in this world?  It is to be real.

Act real, mean what you say, think and really be thinking, talk to your Creator and let the words flow from your heart.  Every cell of your body down to your fingernails should be real.

Yes, everyone knows there are so many things to accomplish in life and everyone agrees it’s better if they’re done with sincerity.

That’s not what’s meant.  There’s just one thing you’re here to accomplish:  To be real.

Daily Chabad ~ On Soul Repair

How will you fix a soul?

A soul doesn’t need fixing. It needs to be uncovered.

Blind yourself to its muddy crust. Dig deeply and deeper yet, sift through the darkened embers, search for a spark that still shines. Fan that spark until a flame appears, find the mitzvah that will serve as its oil and wick. Until all is consumed in the warmth of that flame.

For empathy is the redeemer of love, and love is the mother of all good deeds.
