There is an easy path to fulfill the Torah. Not by forcing yourself, not by convincing yourself, but by achieving awareness:

A constant awareness that all you see and hear—the wind that strokes your face, the pulse of the heart within your bosom, the stars in the heavens and the earth beneath your feet, all things of this cosmos and beyond—all are but the outer garments of an Inner Consciousness, a projection of His will and thoughts. Nothing more than His words to us, within which He is concealed.

And the Master of that consciousness speaks to you and asks you to join Him in the mystic union of deed and study.

In such a state of mind, could you possibly choose otherwise?

Tanya, part 1, chapters 21 and 41.

Illusionary World We create a world of objects outside of our mind when there is really nothing outside of you!

The Kabbalists reveal that only His Light exists behind your illusionary impressions.

Aquire different qualities then you will see different impressions of the forces behind the illusion. Reply

I AM at your gate, open for Me. As it is written, “His greatness cannot be searched”. For they look into the darkness and not see the light that is His greatness. For one would say its mystical that which is not revealed. Call upon His glory, as He is within and around you. As the Torah guides above and below, one need not search for it is already given to you. Reply

Awareness Once the nature of His Essence reveals its profundity, it exerts itself on oneself inclining one to naturally draw closer. Reply

Present Moment Awareness I didn't know there was a Jewish version of what is commonly called present moment awareness, nor am I sure what Tanya is. I am determined to find out. Reply

mind-blowing I've been reading Rabbi Freeman's "daily dose" fo years--I can never get enough--but this one really takes the cake.

I had to study for years to be able to "get it" -- to live according to the deep Torah here. Thanks very much, Rabbi. Reply
