Once upon a time, a righteous soul, a great Kabbalist chose to live each day of his life as it was the first and last at once.
He understood, that it's upon oneself to see each single day as a present for a new life!
In the morning, he'd wake-up filled with appreciation and excitement; committing himself to seize every opportunities presented before him.
He'd work hard for "his bread", and even harder to share everything he has: his heart and soul, as well as the rest of the money he earned with whoever in need crossed his path.
At the end of a busy day, he'd thought that if he was lucky enough: "Tomorrow", he'd have another chance to do the same.
Falling asleep happy, "Today" was the one chance to make a difference for himself and the world!
About 13 years ago, my "future husband" that I had just started dating, shared this story with me.
Was it that I was new to the"English language"? or that I didn't get the depth and message behind it?
However, I thought then, that was a "crazy story"! Would anyone live that way today?
Well...Years later, I realized that this story "stuck with me", and actually affected me in a very personal way for even longer.
See...When I was younger, I never made any type of calculation, when I shared "my gift" with others.
It was simple...flawless as a conversation. I was "in the business of the Light".
Back then, there was no wondering: Do I create unbalance between giving and receiving? (what Kabbalah calls:"Bread of shame") or this is part of my work and I need to schedule an official meeting.
I knew that there was another type of payment, one that is unlimited and I was "rewarded",each time that I was going with the flow, beyond one can measure and...this is the message that I got from this story.
If we don't make calculation, particularly when we share and we have complete certainty that there is a perfect system of retribution, this is the time that we'll see "The Face of The Light" and how much the universe has to offer us.
Everyday of my life: either with this blog or the "spontaneous meetings" that I have, at any given time or place of the day, I'd share "free-ly" more than I get pay for "my services", and I would not replace this with anything.
The beauty in it, is to see other types of doors open as if The Light was standing front of me, opening them for me.
When we expand our heart to be there for others, "magically" we make room to receive true abundance and well being for ourselves as well.
Love & Light Always, Ilanit.

When people gather together, they often enjoy talking: politics, society or some other topics "in vogue".
Personally, the one thing that keeps me going is: spiritual matters.
Talking about life and the different nuances of light in it, but also sharing "inputs" with others as I start to communicate with their soul is just like oxygen to breathe.
The same way, a singer is feeling complete when he sings, "sharing our light" is the most significant way for experiencing "The Light".
For this reason, it says: Sharing / Loving is the "One" purpose of life!
However, to reach this ultimate level, we all need to transform our tailor made "ego suit" and today, it's: the control versus letting go outfit that I would like to address.
Independently of our differences, it seems almost certain that anyone wish to be happy.
Nevertheless, we're all raised to believe via family, society, religion and other sources that: this work, that relationship and/or achievement is the only way to have a taste of it!
Almost everyone, has a specific opinion on how they will experience: "happiness", focusing all their might and energy to get it!
(I will let you here, draw your own picture in your mind, to see all the details that such behavior can cause in someone life).
Well...Often we're missing the point!
Happiness is first and foremost a state of mind, a way of appreciating life.
Happiness passes by us, when we concentrate our full attention on the present moment and on how much of our sparks we can share, in any given time and situation.
As it says:
" Happiness is like a butterfly, the more you pursuit it, the more it eludes you, but if you are patient (and persevered in your selflessness and certainty), it will settle upon you, when you least expect it".
Love & Light Always, Ilanit.
