Get Fired Up!

Thursday, 22 December, 2022 - 10:11 pm

When was the last time somebody went out of their way for you?

How did it make you feel?

Imagine the CEO of a major company leaving their ivory tower to reach out to you because you were struggling with a particular business issue. You would feel that they truly cared about you.

It's quite amazing. Every one of us has a soul, yet many of us are not in touch with it.

Our souls leave the comfort of basking in the light of G-d only to enter a lowly world in order to elevate it and make it a more spiritual and G-dly place.

Think about the sacrifices our souls have made so that we don't live a meaningless or a mundane life in this lowly world. 

Meditate about the journey our souls have taken into our bodies and the sacrifices that they have made! 

Let us show compassion to our soul and its journey and respond in kind with passion and gratitude. How can we do this?

When we get inspired, we get fired up. When WE get fired up, we need to use that inspiration to fire up others! This is the way that we are able to keep our own inspiration going and keep that inner flame alive. As we get closer to the end of Chanukah, let's fire each other up!

Our gratitude and emotional response should be one which should fire us up to ensure that our souls can express themselves and fulfill their missions of brightening up the darkness of the world.

Together, through acts of goodness and kindness, we can build a movement that is so on fire, it will melt all the apathy and the cold. It will light up the darkness, so that we can see how everything around us is even brighter than it was before we arrived.

Have an amazing, fired up Shabbos.
