Revelation

There is a book in Judaism, called Pirkei Avot, loosely translated Wisdom of our Fathers. When I was living at home five years ago, with all of the time in the world to better myself, to wonder at the life of a soul... I lived in this book.

In gist, it is a compilation of sayings about life, the Bible, from the great Rabbis of history. From reading it so many times I have a few of the maxims internalized and for whatever reason this one recently continues to resound in my heart and just thought I'd share:

"Do not separate yourself from the community
Do not believe in yourself until the day you die
Do not judge your fellow until you have reached his place."

Take it for what it means to you... To me, it is everything I aspire to do.

It's Wednesday... let's make it an incredible rest of the week!
