Looking Up

Last night I dreamed that I was on top of a gorge jumping into a river below.

The jump was no quick one.

I'd float in air and slowly, almost gracefully, make my way into the water.

No stomach drop and no giant kaboom splash.

Just as it started to rain, I remember thinking, We don't stop jumping just because it's raining.

I jumped again. As I floated in air, I looked up at the sky. 

It felt as if I was moving towards the heavens. Jumping Up. 

Slowly, I floated down towards the water and landed.

As I made my way out of the water, someone said to me, That's how you jump. You jump looking upwards.

We just entered the month of Nisan, also known as the month of Spring.

Just as seeds are starting to get energy from the Sun above to grow and give fruit, I hope that we all can receive energy from the Divine so that we too may grow and give of our fruits. 

To looking up.

Chodesh Tov!
