We are standing here today, right before the New Year. This is truly an awesome moment. What will be? What will my judgment be? I know that I am on trial for my very life, and I know what I have done. Oy!
A chasid never prays to get what he “deserves,” because he knows very well what he deserves. What to do?
Well, this is what I am going to do. As I am preparing to go up before the King, I am asking Him to pour out His mercy and give each of you a favorable judgment.
May you have a year filled with joy, health, love, and prosperity. May you grow spiritually, and also see your loved ones grow spiritually. May the King of kings bless you to actually see His loving hand helping you in all areas of your life, and in the lives of everyone you love, especially your children. May those of you who are single find wonderful partners this year, and those of you who long to have children, may your house soon be filled with the laughter of your own children. May all of your money worries disappear as you see the King’s coffers open to you. May you discover your purpose in having been created the person you are, and may you succeed in fulfilling that purpose. Please G-d, may you come to understand what the Zohar means when it writes that this world is actually the Garden of Eden.[i] May you move up the spiritual ladder. May you find joy in reaching out to others, and in seeing the fruit of your labors bear fruit. May you realize how G-d loves you, and may you live long years basking in the radiance of His revealed Presence.
May these blessings come true to you this New Year.
(Hashem, You could really save Yourself a lot of trouble by just bringing the Redemption now. Please…)
