ROSH HASHANA IN CENTRAL PARK

I strolled through Central Park today with a different consciousness.  For most of my life I have spent the Jewish New Year in synagogue.  Today I was worshipping in a larger venue.  The sights and sounds were different.  The sky was a bright, astounding blue, the air luxuriant and healing. A hint of autumn was evident.  I observed squirrels, birds, turtles, people.  There was an intensity to the feeling of peace.  I found equanimity in a world constantly and continuously dancing with chaos.  It was about communion, about gratitude for having the opportunity to be alive, about humility in the face of existence, about new beginnings–a truly spiritual experience.  My wish is for everyone to find that place and that peace even for a moment….for a moment is all that we truly have.   L’shana tova
