This week's portion: what is revealed

In this week's Torah portion, Yitro, we read about the Israelites clustered at the base of Sinai, receiving revelation.

As I read the aseret ha-dibrot ("ten commandments") this time, I found the words resonating for me in an expansive way. That's what sparked this week's d'var at Radical Torah:

Listen up! I am the Eternal force for transformation Who brings you forth from Mitzrayim, from all of your tight places. Everything and anything that you perceive, with your narrow consciousness, to be confining -- the prison of your body, the constrictions of your life or your obligations -- can be opened. I am that which opens, which liberates you from slaveries.

Read the whole thing here: What is revealed.
