36/40
From the desk of Rabbi Brian


 

Here’s a wonderful Chassidic quote:

I am afraid of things that cannot harm me, and I know it.
I yearn for things that cannot help me, and I know it.
What I fear is within me, and within me too, is what I seek.

How true, how true.
I fear things that I know aren’t really things to be afraid of.   I hope for things to help me that I know can’t help.   And, I know that the answers are pretty simple, if I would just get to that point.
I suggest that you take the time to type or write out the above quote. (Writing will
activate different parts of your brain than reading or
cutting-and-pasting do.)
Spiritual-religious advice this week: Contemplate your fears and how you deal with them.


 

With love,

Rabbi Brian

The 77% Weekly

The 77% Weekly: The Religion-Outside-The-Box Newsletter
helps people find and be with (the) God (of their understanding) 40 out of 52 weeks a year.


Why 77%?
Two reasons:
1) 40/52 = 0.76923. The newsletter is sent every Monday except the last of each month.
2) In school 77% was a passing grade and ROTB is delighted to remind you that life isn’t graded.

 


Religion-Outside-The-Box is a donation-supported,
non-denominational, internet-based, 501c3-tax exempt religious congregation.
