The Quest for Hidden Meaning

Fulfillment and Mastery

Here is an imagery exercise to welcome the New Year of Rosh Hashana. 

  • Close your eyes and breathe out three times slowly.
  • Imagine that in your quest for meaning, you discover a book
  • hidden somewhere, long ago.
  • Where do you find it? What does your book look like?
  • What is the word you have to find? What does it tell you?
  • How was this word forgotten or lost?
  • Know that now, and through the year to come, you are on the course to fulfill or master what you have rediscovered.
  • Breathe out and open your eyes.
