Do you ever feel all alone?
Do you know what it feels like to stand on the edge, deliberating between giving up at long last or somehow finding the strength to turn around and face a new beginning?
The Chassidic masters teach that just like the Jewish nation experienced 42 journeys in the desert, each member of the Jewish nation walks on 42 journeys of their own throughout his or her lifetime. These are the journeys of youth and adulthood, despair and joy, failure and success, darkness and everlasting light.
The magic of life happens at the point where these paths intersect; where the sophistication of adulthood meets the innocence of youth, where the freedom of joy meets the depth of despair, where the hubris of success meets the teaching of failure and where light and darkness hold hands and share secrets. “Hazorim b’dimah b’rinah” – “With tears and with joy, with joy and with tears”.
If you are a dreamer with eyes turned to the heavens, slowly stepping away from the abyss, this song is for you.
Believe you can move mountains with your shovel of faith.
Because chances are, you already have.
