Yehuda Berg,"Give Em Hell,

On my recent trip to Venezuela, one of the Kabbalah Centre’s teachers and I played a game of pool with some new friends.
I had a thought, while we were playing:
The right move isn’t always the one that gets the ball in the pocket. Sometimes you have to strategize. Sometimes you have to move the ball around so you can ultimately win. In other words, sometimes, not scoring right this moment will eventually get you closer to your goal.
If we take that metaphor into life, we understand that every move we make needs to get us closer to our goal, but it doesn’t always have to be a winning shot.
In chess it’s the same. You might even have to move backwards in order to win. Not every move wins the game, but hopefully every move gets you closer.
Whether it’s with friends, family, in health, spirituality or at work, etc. - whether we physically move a step closer or not, we have to make sure we’re moving toward the goal.
One very real example I’ve experienced is when you feel that someone in your life needs love and care. Words don’t always do the job. You might want to see a movie with that person. While the goal is connecting in a loving way, they might not feel love in that moment. But the love is there, and you’re both moving towards it.
On our own paths, we want to make sure we are always, sharing, connecting and transforming. Sometimes that means confronting our own issues, or someone else’s. Sometimes you have to say words that may be difficult to hear. Harry Truman is known for having said, "I don't give them Hell. I just tell the truth about them and they think it's Hell."
In that moment you don’t feel progress. But in the big picture you’re getting closer - to people, to manifesting something, to the Lightforce of the Creator.
This week, I challenge you to make moves. Strategize. Look at where you’re headed, and rather than seeking to ‘score’ right now, see where you need to go in order to reach your goal. I’d love to hear your experiences - how you get closer, or further, in the process.
This week, give ‘em hell. And let me know how it goes.
All the best,
Yehuda Berg
