1/ Nearly every Shabbat & Yom Tov since I left the pulpit I've prepared a drasha & shiur that I know I won't be able to deliver. I've described that for many artists the need to produce the art overwhelms an actual audience. The art compels them.
2/ I define art broadly to encompass every creative faculty that arises from the multiple intelligences, talents & perceptions in human capability. We know singers or painters are artists, but so is a teacher or philosopher. IMO society doesn't define an art, humanity does.
3/ Not everyone who has artistic talent or drive or vocation needs to have a feeling of compulsion. My chiddush (intellectual innovation) is to say everyone with that need to create has the soul of an artist whether they are recognized or not.

1/ Since the beginning of the #TrumpCrisis, I've had ever increasingly difficult #YomKippur davening because of the burden I feel to act as a 'sanegor' (defender) for my community and for the Jewish world at large.

(This is in addition to the vast ways I need to improve myself)
2/ I'm not a gadol, a posek, or anything close to a tzadik. But after seeing so many rebbeim & gedolim openly support Trump (ym'sh), erase women from Jewish life, and encourage anti-vax shtuyot, I considered the tenuous possibility that I would need to act as a communal sanegor.
3/ With the established leadership descending into avoda-zara (DJT), shefichat-damim (COVID denial) & arayot (dehumanizing women), I needed to step up - out of safek-nefashot - and use all of my halakhic, rhetorical & philosophical ability to devise kappara for the Am Kadosh.

1/ #ReshetKeshet
Before #RoshHashanah there's a common practice to utter a blanket request for forgiveness. E.g. "To everyone I know or encountered please forgive me. OK bye!"

You're correct in thinking that this depersonalized superficial "apology" is hollow & thus ineffective.
2/ How can I forgive someone if they don't know what they did to me? Doesn't admit real guilt, express regret, detail how they will work towards restitution, or describe how they will fix their mentality/behavior to avoid hurting me in the future.
3/ However, #RoshHashanah is a dangerous time of year. Tradition understands the stakes are the highest possible. It's an annual review before the King of Kings, arbiter of justice, and we treat it like the final exam worth 100% of our grade.

Happy Sunday, beloved children of God! 🌅☀️
As we wrap up our series on “Forgiveness of Self”, we find ourselves in John 14.
John 14 deals with the well known truth of Jesus being “the way, the truth, and the life.” Internalizing this truth has far-reaching impact in the life of a believer.
Our focus text comes to us from verse 27. Here, Jesus bestows on us, His magnificent GIFT OF PEACE OF MIND. He tells us that though He must physically depart the Earth, He’ll LEAVE HIS OWN PEACE with us.

Happy Saturday, beloved family! I hope your weekend has been off to an excellent start! 🌅☀️❤️
Our focus text for today, comes to us from Romans chapter 8, which focuses on life in the Spirit.

In verse 1, we have THE blessed assurance from God, that there is indeed NO CONDEMNATION FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
To be “in Christ Jesus” means that He dwells within us, & us within Him. We are ONE.
So, by sending His own son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins, God made sure that there is NO CONDEMNATION for us.

Blessed Friyay morning to you all, beloved children of God! 🌅☀️❤️
Our focus today will be within 1st John , chapter 3. This chapter deals EXCLUSIVELY with our identities as children of God. We are encouraged to strive to be a people of ethical integrity & to live a life that is reflective of our spiritual identity.
In verse 20, we are reminded of the truth that God is actually GREATER THAN OUR HEART. People of God, this is a quite profound assertion! 🤯🤯🤯

Good Morning, Apples of God’s Eyes!
Today’s focus text comes to us from Exodus 34. This chapter deals with God’s renewal of his covenant with the Moses & the people of Israel.
In verse 7, we see God’s character ever so clearly. He states that He keeps His steadfast love & covenant THROUGH A THOUSAND GENERATIONS. Beloved people, that is a LONGGGGGG TIME! Who among us can fathom A THOUSAND GENERATIONS??

Happy Wednesday, beloved children of The Most High God. 🌅☀️❤️ Image
Today’s focus text comes to us from the book of Isaiah, chapter 54. Isaiah 54 focuses largely on God’s everlasting love for ALL of His people & how this love HEALS ALL our sorrows. This, however, hinges on our CHOICE to abide in Him, on HIS terms, & not on our own.
Isaiah 54:10 paints a glorious picture of God’s steadfast love for us! 😍
Can you imagine mountains departing & hills being removed? What a sight that would be! How intense would that be?
Is it even likely that such a thing could happen?

The power of forgiveness

Heal your prana through the power of forgiveness. Learn to forgive and seek forgiveness. Hold photos or a paper with written names of your family members or visualise them, and seek forgiveness by saying, 'If I have hurt you in anyway through my action
or words, please forgive me.' And, 'I forgive those who have hurt me in anyway.'

Then say a prayer for them, like- ‘Dear God, please bestow your blessings on them, give them good health, wealth, and peace. Fill their life with love and respect, give them contentment.'
Try to project environmental energy through your left hand towards them and everyone in the world, with a good intention and pure heart.

Dear Friends,
The word #Forgiveness means different things to different people, but one thing it certainly points to is a prior state of being hurt emotionally or physically by others’ actions or words. Looking at dictionary definitions of the word #forgive
#Forgive means some of the following:
To pardon a wrong done
To remit or cancel a debt
To absolve of an offence
To leave a hurt feeling or situation alone, abandon it, send it away from you, your mind or consciousness
Whatever definition we might adopt,
it requires a conscious decision to forgive. In my personal life, I tend to ask myself,  Did God ask me to forgive, does it require my trust or faith in Him? Really when you think about it, anything He asks us to do will require our trust in, faith in & total reliance on Him

1. From my morning quiet time with God: [Jesus said:] "For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day...
2. "...No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them,and I will raise them up at the last day..." (John 6:40, 44)

These are comforting words, originally spoken to a disbelieving crowd who wanted Jesus to be a king who did their bidding, like modern-day...
3. ...political candidates pandering for votes. But Jesus wasn't out to win a popularity contest. He was offering all of us more than "a chicken in every pot and a Maserati in every garage."

Our Lady of Fatima said on October 13, 1917, the day of the great Miracle of the Sun, ‘People must amend their lives #Fatima #Fatima103 #FatimasNextJob
2. and ask pardon for their sins. They must not continue to offend Our Lord, Who is already deeply offended.’

The Holy Bible tells us that ‘He was wounded for our iniquities, He was bruised for our sins’ (Isaiah 53:3). St Alphonsus, Doctor of the Church, says that each one of
3. us can truly say the if I sinned just one sin less, then Jesus would have less to suffer in His Passion and Death.

The Blessed Virgin then tells us that we must pray because she knows, and the Catholic Church teaches, that without the grace of God no one can

#HeroesAct2 — LiveTweeting Legislation

Like many #smallbiz attorneys and advocates, I’m spending most of tonight and tomorrow reading over the Democrats newly-released #COVID19 #stimulus package. As I review, I’ll share some insights and discoveries. Stay tuned!
Congress proposes three #setasides for #PPP funding:

(1) at least 10% for #smallbiz with fewer than 10 employees OR for certain loans made to biz in low- and mod-income areas

(2) < 30% for nonprofits, housing coops, and hotels/restaurants

(3) < 50% for supplemental PPP loans.
Also similarly reserves the lesser of 25% or $15B of the unused #PPP loans appropriations for loans by Community Financial Institutions.

By far the best book I have read in a long long time.
One can simply begin from any page,for each note makes so much sense that we get lost in them , sometimes chuckling & often amazed .

Here are MY learnings from
" A Book of Simple Living" by Ruskin Bond.
The book is enriched with life lessons . Most profound of all for me being ,

#Life is simple despite all its hardships and complexities .
For the purpose of life is to live ....

Now, how we choose to live our life makes it simple or complicated.

Do we chase #happiness by climbing infinite mountains in the quest for fame & wealth or do we savour the goodness in the little things that often come our way but go unnoticed and unappreciated by us ?
For ultimately , " It is the little things that matter the most ".

Dreams stacked

. . . argue #size, #affiliation, #economicneed, and other #eligibility factors against SBA if you want to keep your #PPP loan and seek #forgiveness.
If you get recieve a negative outcome from an #audit, be prepared to #appeal within #SBA. #PPP will likely become very #litigous.

Late yesterday, #SBA released the #PPP Loan Forgiveness Application standard form. The new #forgiveness application provides borrowers, and lenders, with much anticipated information regarding PPP loan forgiveness, but presents new challenges for businesses.
In seeking PPP loan forgiveness, borrowers likely have to #recertify their #size, #affiliations, and #creditworthiness and must prepare for extensive SBA review of these certifications in processing the forgiveness applications.
For more discussion on the #PPP Loan #Forgiveness Application, check out the article below.…

On 5/13, #SBA provided some relief for #smallbiz concerned with possible SBA audits, particularly related to “economic need” certifications and the “good faith” safe harbor. But, #PPP loan recipients did not receive a full reprieve from all challenges.…
Despite the grace for “economic need” certifications, #SBA audits and post-hoc reviews still present significant risks for borrowers and even lenders, regardless of the #PPP loan amount.
Borrowers of less than $2 million should still prepare for potential #SBA audits and post-hoc reviews, particularly if they apply for #PPP loan #forgiveness. These reviews will likely require borrowers to substaniate size, #affiliations, #NAICS code, and even #creditworthiness.

DEVELOPING — U.S. Senate passes $2 trillion stimulus bill that provides expanded unemployment, strategic tax relief, healthcare system support, and enhanced aid for #smallbiz.
Section 1102, for instance, creates the “Payment Protection Program”, providing broader authority for the U.S. Small Business Administration to issue 7(a) loans to eligible small businesses for payroll, health benefits, rent, mortgages, utilities, and other eligible debts.
Section 1106 allows businesses with these 7(a) loans under the Payment Protection Program to seek loan #forgiveness equal to payments for payroll, rent, mortgages, utilities, and interest thereon between Feb. 15, 2020 and June 30, 2020.
