The less I do, the more I am: Rosh Hashanah 5781.

Last year I wrote a blog post for Rosh Hashanah about crying on this holy day. If you haven't read it yet, here is my Rosh Hashanah 5780 post.

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, is a time where we celebrate the previous year while also taking on account all the blessings from the previous year and the areas of improvement. This year we celebrated Passover in a quarantined exile out of our familiar ways we lived life, and now we are to celebrate the new year in a similar light. A new year brings a period where, as we say on Rosh Hashanah, "it is inscribed, and on Yom Kippur it is sealed," as we pray to be sealed in the book of life for a year full of blessings, health, prosperity, and sustenance.

I believe that all that we desire materially and spiritually is right there available to us, we just have to rise to perceive goodness, to generate abundance, and to transform to a state of being to be able to receive it.
