The Ladder of Prayer

From the book HaYom Yom, from Day to Day, from the entry for the 5th of Kiselv...

"A ladder was standing on the ground." (Bereishit 28:12, Yaakov's dream)

Prayer is the ladder that connects souls and G-dhood. And although it stands "...on the ground," the start of Davening being no more than acknowledgement, yet "it's top reaches the Heavens" - a state of total Bitul, self-nullification.

How far can prayer reach, especially prayer with intent and honesty!

Thanks to R. Nati for picking up blogging over the last week as I've been loaded with work and a problematic Internet connection. Moments of trouble are the time for a company to shine, Comcast (my Internet provider) unfortunately did the opposite.
