Bittersweet

Chassidism emphasizes the importance of setting aside time for introspection, each and every day, in order to search the soul, for flaws, negative character traits, and the accumulation of unwanted emotions. Yet, there are times when a spontaneous shift occurs, almost as if the soul has a natural element, given to a self cleanse mode, announcing that this moment is an opportune time to reflect, here and now, in an organic way. The moment becomes bittersweet, wherein a spark flames the desire to return to G-d, in a more sincere way, thus eventually giving way to joy.

“Thou didst turn for me my mourning into dancing.”

– Psalms 30:12, JPS 1917 Tanach

I have B.A.'s in Psychology, and English; and, a certificate in psychophysical re-education; at current, I am exploring my third area of academic interest - ecology. My spiritual journey, through many transitions, culminated in taking the yoke of Heaven upon myself.
