Recovering Sacred Meanings
We're well into Chanukah, and I hope you're allowing this special time to nurture your minds and spirits. As I wrote on my other blog, Exuberant Eclectic,there's a risk of losing the meaning of either Chanukah or Christmas when the emphasis veers away from their spiritual, to be replaced by commercialism.
Jews especially will find two favorite books of mine a good read at this time year. In fact, dipping into Soul Judaism and A Letter in the Scroll, makes it easy to recover some of the sacredness that gets lost in everyday life. These books may be of interest to secular, as well as to observant, Jews.
Read, enjoy, and keep a notebook handy to capture your thoughts and feelings.
