Parshat Lech Lecha: Gen. Ch. 12. v. 1. Now the Lord said to Abram: “Get you out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father’s house, to the land that I will show you.” The Hebrew for land, eretz, shares a common root with the word for will, ratzon. Like Abram, we need to leave behind the land of desires, ego, and narrow sense of self to see and feel the deeper and sacred land and present moment available to us all.
May we have the faith and courage to leave our smaller selves and open to the unknown holy source of being.
