Because I gave no attention to the Space within which the world unfolds,
But rather sought to impose my control upon the world’s unfolding;
Because rather than gratitude for what I had,
Complaining about what I didn’t have;
Because I closed my fist around what I had,
Rather than opening my hand to those who did not have;
For all this I imagine that this curse now upon me is punishment;
I imagine that G-d strikes at me in anger, that I am guilty.
But the Kadosh Barukh Hu does not punish, does not reward.
The Kadosh is the Empty Space from which renewal springs;
It is Its Own reward; to ignore It is Its own punishment.
Hashiveinu HaShem Eilekha, V’nashuvah!
There is Only One- rejoicing and suffering, loving and hating,
Unfolding as this world, messy and beautiful.
Please: Unfold as us embracing you,
Knowing you as the Space of this moment unfolding.
Hadeish yameinu k’kedem~
Infuse our days with the spirit of renewal-
The sunlight glistening on a drop of dew clinging to a leaf~
Just as the days when we were children before we knew trouble,
Just as the days before we developed the idea of “us” and “them”.
