Is Change Possible?

Wednesday, 1 May, 2019 - 12:52 pm

Have you ever wondered if change is possible? 

We all know that fleeting change is possible. However, can "The fat guy" become a health evangelist?  Can the atheist become a religious leader? Can the person who does not enjoy praying start to enjoy it and share its value.

am not talking about forcing change, white-knuckling it, but changing who we are at our core!

I believe it is possible. But, it takes time and commitment to many many small steps to make it happen.

We are now during the time of Sefiras HaOmer, when we count up to Shavuos. Traditionally, it is time to work on growth.

There are two types of counting done; the daily count and the weekly count. We say today is 12 days which is 1 week and 5 days of the omer. The week count is only possible with the day count.

There are two types of change; the ones that are big changes and the ones that are small changes. Ultimately, the big changes are a result of the many small changes. True change is only possible with many small changes.

As we set our eyes on a major life change, remember do not jump into the deep end without a life jacket, take small steps in the right direction and after some time, you will arrive at a new place, and actually enjoy it.

I am working on being completely present when I am with someone. 

What change are you working on? 

Rabbi Kushi Schusterman
