L'shanah tovah tikateivu לשנה טובה תכתבו
Rabbi Amy Levin
What is My Magnetic North?
Each of us would be wise to pause in our lives and ask what is our magnetic north.
For some of us, our magnetic north is love, for some of us it is fear, for some of us it is power.
If love is our magnetic north, we will embrace our experiences with caring and support. If fear is our magnetic north, then we will be ruled by insecurity and doubt. If power is our magnetic north, then control and worry about who is in charge will fill our life. Whatever is our magnetic north is the veil through which we see the world.
Where is true north?
It is where we know we should be headed.
In life, none of us is given a map . . . but we are all given a compass.
Noah ben Shea, Jacob's Ladder
