Understanding the Process of Spiritual Success
Spiritual endeavors, whether building the Mishkan or a Marriage, begin with an initial Inspiration. With a flicker of light in our souls we see the vision of a realized dream or a completed project. Then comes the effort to construct it into a tangible and living reality. The inspiration is the easy part — Service is the difficult and prolonged work. Hakham Dr. Yosef ben Haggai reminds us often that goals are realized by “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.” It is committed and continued Service to the Inspiration that will bring us to the Shalom we envisioned initially. Understanding and remaining conscious of the process can help us bring the inspiration to fruition. How do we stay energized? Join us this week on Torah Focus as we discuss these key ideas for personal growth.
