For many of us, life can seem at times like the title of Eugene O’Neill’s famous play, Long Day’s Journey into Night. We can be beset with struggles. Life can seem, at times, a challenge. However, what keeps us on the journey? We rise each day to continue on a mission that is far bigger than ourselves. Yes, life has its ups and downs, but it can also yield great rewards. It is the spark of the Creator that we each house inside longing to be ignited into a flame that provides us with the fulfillment we seek in life. As many people who have achieved fame or fortune can attest, those things did not bring them the happiness that they had hoped. Our Promised Land is the state of becoming like the Creator, in all His attributes of love, sharing, generosity, and kindness. It is in this space that we live a life of peace, blessings, and fulfillment. This week, we complete the month of Cancer and conclude the fourth book of the Torah. Our journey may seem long, but it has been worth the ride. We have grown into new people, with bigger hearts, and a capacity to achieve great things. We have come closer to arriving at our own Promised Land, whatever that may be for each of us. This week, we take those final steps to the life and world we have earned, deserve, and have been promised for so very long.
