As the holiday of Sukkos moves upon us we contemplate the many miracles that we celebrate. The pillar of cloud by day the pillar of fire by night. The temporary shelters we lived in in the wilderness. The clothes that never wore out, the manna from heaven; all of these a gift of the grace of Hashem a reminder of the miraculous and a celebration to remember.

At the start of this new year we both are releasing and opening to all there is.
There is this release and then a letting go that opens up the way for greater things to come. It is a clearing of the debris and a new form to become imbued with holiness. It is then out of this holiness that all things come to be.
It is a rare instance in which the totality of Mind may be grasped even for a brief glimpse of the fullness of reality. Usually these perceptions have to be approached from a distance so that the viewing angle remains undisturbed due to the proximity of our drawing near.
When by whatever grace there is in the moment you happen to draw near what you find can be a lifetime of sifting through this singular event determining meanings and always seeking a way back into the realm of its occurrence.
Here is the thing itself winding around the tendrils of your Consciousness. It speaks to your very next thought as if saying “here I am take me for your way to be and all will be revealed. ” The timing in these situations is paramount to what is revealed, it depth and its lasting quality.
There appears out of this unity of perception then a progression of understanding specific to the actual connections that are taking shape as opposed to the various experiences that they are in effect attached to.
Then by advancing our familiarity with these connections we can move them around as you would cut and paste within a document editing your vision and making clear the events that are about to transpire.
The purpose of Consciousness is to be there in each moment self aware and more than self aware experiencing the all encompassing embrace of the Eternal. This is what guides us and speaks to us the deeper we listen to its call. Holidays are for remembering the past and for reminding us of our miraculous present. All of this leads continuously into what was called the Promised Land and is simply a path that we desire to constantly remain upon.
The experience of entering the Promised Land is one that may be repeated each moment because before us always is the unknown. We can treat this unknown with fear or with a sense of joy. Joy opens the doors while fear clouds our vision. Enter into this Promised Land with joy making that which you are becoming ever closer to the holiness from above that we are constantly aspiring to return to. B”H
