Elevation – deep!


When you pray, have in mind to arouse the letters with which were created heaven and earth, all creatures above and below, and all universes.  If you do this, then all universes and all creation will join you in worship.

When you do this, arouse these letters, which are the life-force of all creation, and they join your prayers.  Thus your thoughts can elevate all creation, and earth alike…

The Baal Shem Tov once told his disciples, “You must even pray for a bird that might be flying by and singing.”

~ R’ Zechariah of Jaroslaw, Darkei Tzedek as quoted by R’ Aryeh Kaplan zt”l
