meditations: Vigilance


February 11, 2020

The discipline of the self, the unruly self, as opposed to the ideal wholesome self, requires a constant vigilance of sorts day and night. This effort made, for the sake of guarding one’s soul from negativity is of the upmost importance. “Above all that thou guardest keep thy heart; For out of it are the issues of life” Proverbs 4:23, JPS 1917 Tanach). Yet, we must look towards G-d for help in this endeavor, so that we may become established within the sanctity that He will provide for us.

“If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there would Thy hand lead me, And Thy right hand would hold me. And if I say: ‘Surely the darkness shall envelop me, And the light about me shall be night. Even the darkness is not too dark for Thee, But the night shineth as the day; The darkness is even as the light.”

– Psalm 139:9-12, JPS 1917 Tanach
