10/23/17 "Be yourself"



A Torah thought that has stuck with me for a long time goes something like this; most people know the reason we say our name/passuk at the end of shamonei esrei, is to remind us our names when we go up to heaven. The obvious question remains, even in our sleeps we know our names, it’s what we were called from day one. What changes when we go up? What happens differently? A beautiful answer I heard, which has real deepness to is, we go through life doing good deeds, no doubt. But, have we been our essence, or was it an image far from who we really are. In the next world, there is no lies, if we have strayed from ourselves we will literally forget who we are, as we haven’t live it for all our lives.
