It's the month of Elul.
For my tribe that means a time of introspection and accountability.
A little spring cleaning is called for. Or a lot.
Our sages say that Elul is actually an acronym for 'ani ledodi ve dodi li': I am to my Beloved and my Beloved is to me, which is a verse from the Song of Songs.
The Zohar teaches that at this time the Light of the Creator is as ready, open and close to us as It is possible to be. And equally if we are awakened to our soul there is an answering need for closeness to the Divine at this time.
If you have been foolish, now is the time be wise.
If you find you have fallen, now is just the right time for standing up.
Perhaps you have made a storm in a teacup. Stop stirring now....
