So instead of a trip that might take four days, G-d will take them in circles for forty years, willing them to be free, begging them to choose freedom.
It is as if G-d’s pleas echo through the generations. You have a mission, your life has purpose. Find out why you’re here.
This is transformation, my friends; it might hurt, it might drive you crazy, it might put you in a depressive nap in bed, it may make you cry, kicking your feet and thrashing your arms. Every synapse in your body will rage against this free time of yours. You senses may rebel against this newfound freedom.
And yet, if you listen closely, you will hear a soft still voice; it is your thirsty soul reminding you that this is not new. Your living room is the great barren desert, G-d towers over you, leading you with a cloud by day and fire by night, demanding that you see life for what it is, and brazenly stare down the truth.
I’ll be here with you for some time, in the form of this column, and through the teachings of this great Torah of ours, I hope to electrify you. I want to take you by the hand and guide you through the rich history of our mighty nation.
I intend to take you to the subterranean depths of this three thousand year old inheritance of ours, and bring it to life. To reveal for you a living, breathing Judaism that ignites you, that enriches your life, and empowers you, the very fabric of The Thirsty Souls.
