CONNECT WITH AISH DENVER
TORAH | PRAYER | ACTS OF KINDNESS
Connect to Self
The Torah is the blueprint of creation. It’s God’s instruction manual that contains all the secrets of the universe, including life-changing wisdom about marriage, parenting, how to be good and attain meaning. When we learn Torah, we are directly connecting to God, seeing the depth of His wisdom and learning to think how He thinks. It is a series of ongoing eureka moments.
Connect to God
When was the last time you had a real heart to heart with God? Not just recite the words in the prayer book, but tap into your inner core and share your deepest concerns, fears and thanks. Reconnect all the wondrous gifts you’ve received in your life back to their ultimate Giver, and feel the love that generates. Try it (not in public please) and see if you feel more connected to God afterwards.
ACTS OF KINDNESS
Connect to Each Other
Perhaps the most direct way to connect to God is to perform a mitzvah and doing acts of kindness. Give tzedakah, visit someone who is sick, say Shema, mark the Sabbath, these are all ways to connect to Hashem. When we do a mitzvah, we are performing with mind, body and soul, God’s will, thereby becoming like God and growing closer to Him. Since God is not physical, closeness is measured spiritually.
