Hanukkah Rededication

Hanukkah Rededication

Hanukkah - Rededication   "Hanukkah commemorates the Jews' struggle for religious freedom when, according to legend, the leaders of a Jewish rebel army called the Maccabees rose up against their Greek-Syrian oppressors in the Maccabean Revolt of 167 BC (BCE). And during that uprising that lasted three years, the Maccabees finally gained control of Jerusalem and wanted to rededicate the desecrated temple. There was only one container of the sacred oil they needed which had the seal of the high priest still intact. Judaism's central text the Talmud, dictates only pure olive oil with the seal of the high priest can be used for the Hanukiah. The candelabrum is required to burn throughout the night every night but although there was only enough oil for one day, the candles miraculously stayed alight for eight days – the time needed to prepare a fresh supply of kosher oil for the menorah."

Motivation Monday: Be Open & Share Your Light

  Become a subscriber to Motivation Monday, click here What is Your Reflection? "When we are open & giving of our light, we create an endless reflection that outlives our human existence." Gary Friedman, Creator and Curator - Restoration Hardware Be Open & Share Your Light Endless Reflection "About this time last year, I was inspired to pen the quote above after having dinner with a friend who asked me, with a tone of concern, "How are you?" I answered, "Inspired, more so than at any other time in my life. I believe we are making a difference, creating a ripple." My friend responded, with a look of confusion and doubt, "Selling furniture?" Shaking my head I replied, "It's not about the furniture." I went on to explain, "By chasing our hopes and dreams, we inspire others to chase theirs. By being creatively courageous and fearlessly fighting for what we believe in, we inspire others to do the same." I continued, "By being open...

Snap Out of It!

  What happens when you find yourself spiraling in a dark moment? Anything can send you into turmoil..... A flat tire A disagreement with someone Losing something - money, jewelry, keys They all give rise to a sudden rush of panic, upset and worry. How do you keep yourself from reeling into another dimension? It's easy.... slip back into consciousness! That's right big emotion can mean big distraction. Your breathing changes, your heart races, you clench in different areas of your body, you lose focus... you lose energy. That momentary lack of clarity can have huge effects in the long run.

All you have to do is tune into yourself...

F^@$ the light at the end of the tunnel

When you're wallowing in your shit, you just want to wallow in your shit.  You don't want Mary Fuckin' Sunshine coming by to say, 'there's always light at the end of the tunnel'.  Really?!  With a grimace you look at her and say, 'get out of here before I bitch slap you, bitch.'  You know she's right, but hey, who wants to hear it right now. Deep in your heart you know you have the glimmer.  It's there to guide you, and probably others.  It can be everywhere, except those moments when you want to sit in the dark.  You have a purpose.  Intensity, speed, polarisation, frequency.  Ultralight, XRAY, gamma.  What's your wavelength? Are you the 10th candle on the birthday cake for the kid about to go into double digits?  The 22nd bulb on a  Broadway marquee or the tail end of a fireworks finale.  A glow stick or those wands...
