🍯⤴From Pain to Sweetness:

Ratzo vShav on the Yomim Noraim: We eat honey - in particular- on Rosh Hashana to teach us that the pain (from stings) of the past will become the sweetness of the future.

As we enter the Yom HaDin, we are doing cheshbon hanefesh on the past year... and simultaneously Refining & Defining our Ratzon - our Yearning & Willingness to create new and improved version of self for the coming year...

According to Sefer Tomer Devora, Keter encompasses the midos of Humility / Anava and Tolerance.

🍯May we never stop thinking good thoughts

🍯May our metzach / forehead not contain any harshness... May we transform our thoughts to pleasantness and positivity - Daas Elyon / higher consciousness.

🍯May our ears only listen to טוב - only good things... May our our listening be refined to Higher Listening האזנה העליונה (chapter 2: section 4)

🍯May our vision be transformed to Higher Sight - Ayin Tov... העין העליונה.

🍯May our Pain be transformed to Sweetness ...✨Our Darkness to Light
