I am living my passion which is raising children and making a home. During this I have come to realize that in order to be who we were born to be it requires a connection to Divine Consiousness. When the moment came that I realized this great truth, I have sought out that connection and how to achieve it.
Here is my all time favorite:
It is easy to be a slave to the outward rules, difficult to enter into the spirit; easy to obey a number of outward rules, difficult to enter intelligently and self sacrificially into observances, difficult to yield the obedience of an enlightened heart; easy to be haughtily exclusive, difficult to be humble spiritual; easy to be ascetic or a formalist, difficult to be pure, and loving, and wise and free; easy to be a Pharisee, difficult to be a disciple; very easy to embrace a self satisfying and sanctimonious system of rabbinical observances, very difficult to love God with all the heart, and all the might, and all the soul.
