The Inner Ear


Every day, an echo resounds from Mount Horeb (Sinai) and proclaims: “Woe to those who insult the Torah…”

Ethics of the Fathers, 6:2

Asked Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov: Have you ever met someone who told you that he hears this echo? To what purpose, then, is this proclamation if no one hears it?

But often a person is seized by a feeling that has no identifiable source or cause. He may be struck by a sudden joy, or fear, or regret. He may suddenly resolve to better himself, to rectify a deficient past and turn a new leaf in his life. He may be suddenly driven to embark on a new initiative in his spiritual development. From where do these unprovoked awakenings come?

Every day, an echo resounds from Mount Horeb.
