Adam opened his eyes on the day of Rosh Hashanah, which is the head of the Jewish New Year, and exclaimed in awe gazing at the beautiful mountains, magnificent waterfalls, vast and open sky, majestic forests with vivid flora and fauna. He knew it is the work of his maker and he sang the glory of His G-d.
I often wonder if he opened his eyes in the modern times what is it that will fill him with awe, the magnificence of nature has been reduced to holiday spots and extravagant resorts and to go there you need to have two things in plenty, time and money. It is a privilege in the hands of a few.
The exquisite and verdant nature is now screaming for preservation.
There is concrete everywhere, within and without. The concrete within has to melt and humanity needs to breathe again.
The world is driven by technology, which is a blessing gone awry. It needs wisdom and discernment to use the mighty power it beholds.
Everything in the universe affects everything else.
So it is time now to wake up to the reality and start beautifying the world around us. How? By holding the image of the perfect world our creator sculpted and making our actions in accordance to that. Let’s preserve what is and create the new responsibly.
Let’s be nice to our fellow beings. Let’s live the virtues of compassion, love, kindness, empathy and integrity. Let’s spread smiles. Be grateful for everything bestowed upon us by the maker. Have faith.
Rosh Hashanah the first day of creation is followed by Yom Kippur– the Day of Atonement. On this day forgiveness of sins is asked for, it is a day to make your wrongs right. Let’s forgive ourselves and others and begin again. Let’s not hope now, let’s do what is needed.
May peace be upon the Earth. May we become the ambassadors of peace. I pray for the wellness of all.
