The greatest freedom of all is to have an open heart. Our heart, like a caged bird, longs to be set free in order to embrace its potential to love without limits. Yet for so many of us, our hearts stay closed and caged. We keep our chest physically closed even, creating spiritual and physical blockages. But the heart longs to love and be free. The first book of the Torah tells us, “God created man in His own image.” Humankind are drops from the great sea, in fact, we are the sea itself. We were created to emulate the Creator and to love accordingly. Does it not feel good to love? Is it not the greatest joy to be in love? Love is all that matters, yet so many of us find our hearts closed, hesitant to be free, and scared to give. This week, the universe offers us the most profound gift of the year. We are offered a key to the cages of our hearts. We are offered the opportunity to set our love free and our hearts to soar. We are given the courage to fulfill our divine potential and walk in the footsteps of the Creator. To love one another as we would love ourselves is our greatest aspiration and our most profound achievement. This week, we receive a heart that is fearless.
