At any given moment we possess the power to start over again. The human experience is like an “earth school” in which we learn the ways of our soul and connecting to divinity. In life, we will make mistakes. This is our process and it is expected of us. Would we ever judge or criticize a child who stumbles while learning to walk? We can show ourselves and others this same love all throughout our lives. The Creator bestows upon us this mercy and love. Each day when the sun rises, we are blessed with another day at earth school. We are never held bound by our mistakes or past, rather we always have a way to release them. They never limit the potential of who we can become. Our pasts are not necessarily our futures. We are able to strive beyond the confines of who we once were towards becoming who we are destined to be. This week, the holiday of Purim is celebrated and it showers us with merciful energy designed to renew and restore us. Kabbalists teach that the purification of the single day of Purim is equivalent to all the spiritual work we undergo in the month of Virgo and Libra. The merciful and beautiful light of renewal comes to us this week, allowing us the great gift to be free from our past mistakes and stretch beyond them to our soul’s most authentic existence.
