The little glitches…


Each day we face challenges, problems, conflicts and discord. Life is full of little glitches. What if, instead of seeing these glitches as problems, we looked at each problem as an opportunity for growth and understanding? What if we met each day not with despair over obstacles but by welcoming challenges as opportunities to create miracles?

Kabbalistic teaching enumerates seven middot or basic character traits–love, restraint, harmony, ambition, devotion, bonding and receptiveness.  We should work to cultivate these basic traits in daily life.  Love the whole world and the world loves you back. Practice harmony and you’ll be able to nullify discord. Ambition is an important trait, as its practice keeps us constantly moving in a positive direction. Devotion to our craft, our friends, family and our spirit practice allows us to be grounded and calm. Bonding is the feeling of sharing and building bridges of understanding between ourselves and our audiences. Receptiveness keeps us on track with new ideas, new faces, new places and an open, understanding heart.

Only you can perceive miracles. Live each day as if it is a miracle. Marvel in the wonder of creating music. Within a thought or an idea, the musician creates lyrics, music and melody.  Your art is indeed an expression of self combined with spirit.  You and your creations are miracles.
