March Meditation: Transformation
“The sacred call is transformative. It is an invitation to our souls, a mysterious voice reverberating within, a tug on our hearts that can neither be ignored nor denied. It contains, by definition, the purest message and promise of essential freedom. It touches us at the center of our awareness. When such a call occurs and we hear it – really hear it – our shift to higher consciousness is assured.”
-David A. Cooper, 1994
Though David Cooper is writing about the shofar, the ram’s horn sounded in synagogue services during the Ten Days of Penitence; there are a lot of different ways that ‘the sacred call’ may be expressed. By pursuing any kind of spiritual growth, we are allowing ourselves to be more of who we really are, and that shows that we have heard the call We should remember that life has meaning, and we are transforming our own lives to reflect that.
