Thought of the Day: Awe 2007 Jan 22

From the other day on, I like it very much, it articulates something about fear that I think is important.

One of the great Rabbis once said, “Jewish tradition teaches man how small he is and how great he can become.” Do not be frightened of G-d. Stand in awe of Him. Fear weakens the spirit. Awe strengthens it. Fear is demoralizing. Awe is uplifting.

Coupled with love, awe is the basis of Judaism with which one can begin to communicate with and pray to G-d, concretizing a relationship with the soul.

It makes me think of Arianna Huffington’s book: On Becoming Fearless, which came out around the time Leah interviewed her.
