Daily Thought
The sound of the shofar is not the cry of a human voice. It is the howl of an animal’s horn. It is a cry so primal, so raw, that the mind ceases to ponder, the heart suspends its throb. With the fury of a beast pent up in its cage, the naked essence of the soul bursts out, howling, ripping through heaven’s curtains, awakening the primal essence of all being. The raw core of your soul below touches the Primal Essence above, and now their reunion may begin.
