Vast & Varied; Ensouled Beings ~ a Prayer


23 Elul 5772, Monday, at a Starbucks in Philadelphia

Dearest Sweet Beloved Divine Parent, Thank You for this opportunity to reach out to You. Thank You for this opportunity called, “life” - an opportunity to be surrounded by so many ensouled beings. I’m not the only ensouled being, but, surrounded around and around ~ interacting with ensouled beings. It’s so beautiful to be in a sea of so many “walking candles”, each carrying a “soul flame”, a consciousness. It’s so beautiful, so cozy and cuddly.

The human soul is very very special, as Rabbi Ya’akov Meir Shpielman teaches in “Tal Oros” that the consciousness of a being depends on the level its drawing from cosmically. A rock draws from a lower level than a tree. A tree draws from a lower level than an ox and an ox draws from a lower level than a human. It really depends on what level the particular consciousness branches off into a recognizable being. So for example, a human soul branches off much higher cosmically than an ox’s soul. As a result, it’s already available higher up to extend her identity into an earthly body.

Therefore, every human being is a window through which higher realms peer into our earthly realm. Vice versa, every human being is a window by which the earthly realm can peer into the heavenly realms. However, the beauty of a window is that it’s a spot of transparency which allows lights to flow through. Open a window shade and the room is lit. So every encounter with every human is potentially so beautiful. Please help me do a much better job of opening my own window shade to see this. In most cases, it’s not the other person’s blockages that interfere with this transparent connection, soul to soul, but my own. So please help me open my own window shade, even more, even higher.

This world is populated by people whose souls come from so many cosmic levels. Paradise is vast and varied. Yet, as a marketplace is a gathering point for people far and wide, so too the earthly realm is where souls from the vast and varied spiritual realms converge to interact and transact in varied currency ~ thoughts, ideas, perspectives, designs, song, music, goods, etc.

In a market place, one is dazzled by the array of cultures that pass one’s eyes. So too in this realm, I am dazzled by the array of soul styles that I encounter. It’s beautiful. Thank You for this amazing experience.Thank You for making me alive to it. It’s a true celebration!

Love and Kisses ...
