God Does Not Punish

The universe is a mirror, reflecting back to you everything you put into it. If you want to use a painful experience such as a divorce to help you grow, you must see the event as what it truly is - a lesson, not a punishment.

This has been a month of lessons. Now that we are just a few days out from Rosh Hashanah, I’m asking you to take a few moments to reflect on one experience in your life that you’ve been holding onto as a punishment. Can you find a lesson in it? Can you see any way that the experience has made you stronger or brought you to another level of understanding of yourself and others? Can you see how this experience has strengthened your connection to the Light?
