Parshat Bamidbar - Opening to inspiration

 Parshat Bamidbar Numbers 1:1 The Lord spoke to Moses in the Sinai Desert, in the Tent of Meeting on the first day of the second month, in the second year after the exodus from the land of Egypt…

To receive an insight, we must allow our minds and hearts to be clear, and lay ourselves open and bare like the wilderness at Sinai. However, even if we do the work of opening,  an inspiration is not guaranteed, for inspiration comes  in its own, specific time and place.

Parshat Bechukosai - Walking with God's presence

 Parshat Bechukosai:  Lev. 26:3,12 - "If you walk in My statutes, and keep My commandments, and do them; then .  .  .  I will walk among you, and will be your God, and you shall be My people."

Take a step.  Pay attention to the sensation of your feet leaving the ground and touching the earth again.  When you are fully connected to the sensation of walking, open your awareness and ask how you feel God's presence walking with you.
