Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

With gratitude to Peter Krones who says:

"HINENI

My friends, this rabbinical commentary on Leonard Cohen's final song, his life, surrender (Hineni) and the human condition is profound, heartfelt and moving. I hope you will spend time with it.

If you haven't heard the title song to his final collection, written as he was dying, I will post it as a comment."

It was really sweet of you, Nada, to include Leonard Cohen as an offering here - we are all blessed to have known his love. 

Hineni ...is a declaration few of us can muster from our essence. But the nearer it is ...the smore satisfying our life and time is. 

In the darkening hour of the finality we are enduring, that one phrase compels...

Lyrics:
If you are the dealer, I'm out of the game
If you are the healer, it means I'm broken and lame
If thine is the glory then mine must be the shame
You want it darker
We kill the flame

Magnified, sanctified, be thy holy name
Vilified, crucified, in the human frame
A million candles burning for the help that never came
You want it darker

Hineni, hineni
I'm ready, my lord

Quote of the moment:

"PEACE
NOT WAR
GENEROSITY
NOT GREED
EMPATHY
NOT HATE
CREATIVITY
NOT DESTRUCTION
EVERYBODY
NOT JUST US"
