Check out the timeless, poetic wisdom of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel in bite-size pieces on my Pinterest board. I’ve taken Heschel’s “greatest hits” from his classic book, The Sabbath in the hope of inspiring us all to take time to unplug, be present, and appreciate what is.
Rabbi Heschel’s wisdom is timeless and poetic. He teaches that as human “be-ings”, it is essential to intentionally carve out time where we can appreciate the world that is right in front of us, that exists without our having to do a thing, except to “be.”
We are focusing this entire month in Hineni: The Mindful Heart Community on creating a meaningful Shabbat practice each week AND using the principles of pausing/resting/stopping each DAY.
Creating a Shabbat practice is WAY more than restrictions and “do not’s” (although these are often vehicles for clearing enough of the clutter out of our lives so we can be present in the now) – it’s about the holy space we can open up by being purposeful about how we spend our time.
