When Moses saw the thirteen modalities by which divine compassion enters our world, he fell on his face.

Why did he fall on his face? Which modality struck him so deeply?

Compassion? Loving-kindness? Patience?

He saw the modality of truth. And he fell on his face.

(Talmud, Sanhedrin 111a.)

What is your divine mission in life? It is to be authentic.

Not simply that you must perform your mission in life with sincerity.

Sincerity itself is your mission.

Be real. All the way down to your fingernails, be real.
