Today begins our Rosh Hashanah preparation. The fifth book of Moses, Devarim, combined with the month of Leo, provides us with the perfect environment to begin our studies on Rosh Hashanah. We are 5 weeks away from beginning that journey together, and these 5 weeks are crucial to making the most of your preparation for Rosh Hashanah.
So to start off the Rosh Hashanah preparations ask yourself if you can see the person you want to be 3 months from now? Do you have a clear vision of what you hope to achieve in your life by then? Can you feel who that person is?
When you close your eyes, do you see the path that leads you to becoming that person?
The old saying goes, "If you don't know where you're going, you're never going to get there." Make time in your daily spiritual exercises to meditate on mem-vav-mem from the 72 Names of God to clear the veils that prevent you from being able to see yourself, feel yourself and know what you want to become.
Right now you don't have to have a plan, but you must be able to feel it and see it.
You can also refer to these books and videos to help you on your way.
