The Voice of our Intuitive Knowing - Jewish Outlook

Welcome To Jewish Outlook

The Voice of our Intuitive Knowing

The voice of our soul… the voice of our intuitive knowing…  it  is  our  invaluable  God-given privilege! We were created with the faculty of accessing  some  of  the  wisdom   of  our  Creator! This all-knowing, eternal  wisdom… We are gifted with the ability  to become  aware of its directions, its instructions and counsel.   We can attune to Divine guidance.  We can learn to communicate through  this  language   of  feelings  and  thoughts, this  language   of  clear,  spontaneous  perceptions and understanding, of vivid images  encoded  with meaning.   We can receive  this profound, peaceful inner  knowing,  this  experience of heavenly  love, of feeling vibrantly  alive.


Higher  awareness opens  up  for  us  when  we  are eager  to receive  it, eager  to honor  it and hold  on to  it.    It  can  spare  us  many  mistakes,   mishaps and confusions.  It can save our lives.   To hear it we must be willing to subdue our loud clamoring skepticism, fears and doubts.   Perhaps  there may have been many occasions in our lives when we heard  that  inner  guidance.   We  just  didn’t  know what  it was, where  it came  from.   We just took it



for granted, as though it was coming from our reasoning mind.


There is an easy way to open ourselves to Divine guidance.      It   comes   through    the   simple   art known   as  prayer,   the   art   of  talking   with   the infinite   One   that   created   us.   We   can communicate with the Creator of the Universe because  our inner being,  our soul, is created  with His very same  qualities  of love, joy, wisdom,  and the ability to choose and be creative.   It is our immense  privilege  “to  be created  in His  image.” We  have  no  idea  what  this  means  and  how  vast our potential  is.


Addressing the  Infinite  Creative  Presence  is our most effective way to free ourselves from our burdens.     From  the  deepest   depths  we  can  cry out  to  the  Supreme   Source  of  life  and  love,  we can cry out for help in freeing ourselves from our limitations.  We can pour out our heart and allow our  soul  to speak.   Our  soul,  our  innermost self, our  divine  essence,   knows  the  truth.    It  knows our true origins.


As  we  take  a moment  to  focus  our  attention  on the Infinite Presence of Blissful Love and Eternal Power which created us, we can feel our heart opening,  and  our  mind  expanding.    Soon  a wondrous  process   of  communication  will   flow forth   in  magical   moments  of  high  inspiration. Our  heart  feels  light,  our  mind  quiets  down  and



stays  still,  and  this  allows   clear  perceptions  of true  reality.  As  we  persevere  and  continue focusing on the Infinite Presence, the healing process  deepens.   We eventually feel blessed  with an  increasing  sense   of  well  being,   high expectation, true purpose  and vast potential. And our inspired words reflect the very same understanding that the Divine Presence seeks to communicate to us.


Our words of prayer  can flow forth like a melody: “Master  of  Creation,   in  the  depths  of  our  inner beings  we know that You exist, that You are here, that our life is in Your  hands,  that You care.   We trust  in  Your  wisdom,  in  Your  love  for  us.    We trust  that  You  planted  us  here  in  this  world  to learn  some  invaluable lessons  and  to strengthen our  will  to  serve  Your  blessed  Presence  of  love. We can sense that we are here to be refined and prepared to grow in strength and courage, in friendship,  in  compassion,  devotion,   creativity and oh, so much  more!   You have great  plans  for us.   We trust that as we expand these precious qualities,   we   will   eventually  enter   ever   vaster realms  of  high  awareness  of  strength,   life abundant, eternal beauty and blissful  love.


Please help us really understand all this as we struggle   with   our   everyday   busy   lives   in   this world, as we plow through  our stressful  activities, as  we  are  dealing   with  disappointments,  hurts,



pain,  anger  and  resentment.    Help  us  still  our minds,  persevere in quietness, go much deeper  in our search,  in our dedication to true Reality.   We yearn to focus more on Your awesome  Being that can at times, manifest  within us in robes of Light, enfolding us in peace.   You  created  us to receive Your   blessings,  Your   loving   kindness,  to  hear Your  voice.    Our  minds  long  to  be  flooded  with the beauty and grace of Your awesome  Presence.


You  are  inviting  us  to  take  refuge  in  Your  love. We can curl up in Your arms like a child in its mother’s tender embrace.   We are sharing all our hurts  and  fears  with  You,  and  we know  that  you can dissolve them and replace them with joy and confidence.        We  are  releasing  our disappointments,  resentments,  and   anger   into Your  Presence   of  infinite  compassion.    We  can learn to forgive just as you forgive us.     We are handing  over to You our loneliness, our mistakes, discouragements, confusions, weakness and temptations, and we trust that all these  will soon be  transmuted  and  dissolved   into  the  bliss   of Your   Presence,  for  You  are  forever   waiting   to bless  us.    Through   our  eagerness  to  know  you and   to  help   ourselves   and   our   fellow   human beings,  we  can  receive  inner  freedom,   harmony and joy.


We are eagerly  entrusting our hopes and dreams, our creative  desires  and plans,  our yearnings for



the highest  and the sacred  into Your  loving  care. We know that soon Your answers  will come, with the   blessings,  the   strength,   the   calm   and   the clarity to act according to Your guidance.


Thank   You,   beloved   Creator,   for  Your   eternal love  and  compassion,  Your   invaluable  support and   help.      You   are   sending   us   Your   blessed guidance  through  the very words  we are inspired to  tell   You!      This   is  our   heart   to   heart   talk together.


We  love  and  treasure  everything about  You.   As we  share  our  love  with  You,  You  respond   with Your infinite Love from higher realms of bliss, so awesome  we hardly  dare to believe  in it.  You are our  most  invaluable  Friend  –  our  eternal, supreme, kindly Companion.  You treasure and honor us.  We yearn to serve You in joy and deep devotion   to  You  and  to  Your  children   –  to  our family,  friends,   community  and  mankind.    The more  we  love  You,  the  more  we  love  our brethren,  the  more  Your  loving  kindness  shines forth over us with a glowing  sense of happiness.


Thank You for our immense  privilege  of receiving from  Your  Source  of all Good  – for the ability  to open our awareness to Your abounding blessings of  joy,  of  wisdom,   peace  and  strength,   through our choices  for love.



Thank You, Master of Creation, for enlightening, instructing,  and   strengthening  us  through   the very   words   we  are  affirming   with   You   in  our prayers.   Thank  You for the joy of spreading light together  in partnership with You.”

Daily Torah Quote

Joke of the day

Little Josh was brought to Dr. Gill cause he hadn’t eaten anything for days. Dr. Gill offered him all the goodies he could think of. No luck. He tried a little scolding. It didn’t work. A little pleading, to no avail. Finally he sat down, faced the boy, looked him in the eye. He said, “Look young man, if you can be stubborn, so can I. You’re not going anywhere till you eat something. You can have whatever you want, but only after you have eaten will you leave.” Josh just sat and glared for some time, then said “OK. I’ll eat but I have some conditions. First, I’ll have exactly what I want and exactly how I want it and second you’ll share with me.” Dr. Gill was OK with this. He asked the child what he’d like. “Worms!” said Josh. Dr. Gill was horrified but didn’t want to back out and seem like a loser. So, he ordered a plate of worms to be brought in. “Not that many, just one,” yelled Josh as he saw the plate. So, everything other than one worm was removed. Josh then demanded that the single worm be cut into two pieces and then Dr. Gill eat half. Dr. Gill went through the worst ordeal of his life, and after finishing, barely managing to keep his cool, said, “OK, now eat!” Josh refused as he sobbed, “No way! You ate my half!”
