In this week's Torah portion, Moshe sends the scouts into the land to investigate it.
They come back with two reports. It flows with milk and honey. But, the inhabitants made the scouts feel as puny as grasshoppers.
There's a teaching here for us.
We are always entering into new experiences and new adventures.
Every day has the capacity to flow with sustenance and sweetness. And every day has the capacity to leave us feeling dwarfed.
Which one will you choose to focus on, as this day unfolds? Can you lift up the milk and honey, and shed the fear?
This short teaching -- distilled into 100 words -- arose during this morning's meditation minyan at my shul. Shabbat shalom!
