Daily Chabad ~ The Path of the Humble

owl talking

If we were truly humble, we would not be forever searching higher paths on the mountaintops. We would look in the simple places, in the practical things that need to be done.

True, all these places lie in a world of falsehood. With only a little more light, we would all realize that none of this is really necessary.

But the soul that knows its place knows that the great and lofty G‑d can most be found in the simple act of lending a hand or a comforting word in a world of falsehood and delusions.

Seeds for Meditation ~ Bowing Down In Prayer

moon river I bow down to all the masters whose fragrance has touched this earth.
I bow down to the inherent wisdom of life itself.
I bow down to the infinite intelligence of consciousness.
I bow down to the love that includes everything.
I bow down to the simplicity of awakeness, always here.
I bow down.
