Covered

Because The Moon is Covered, part 1
Through what then will it shine?
Through teshuvah and the sound of the shofar.
–Zohar

1.

Tekiah – Original unity
Before exiles —
Personal
Spiritual
Tribal

Tekiah the universal —
Teruah – the relative

Wavering, crying
A longing to return

Broken
We are breaking up

The Great Tekiah
The promise of return

Sad and beautiful world
Sad – so far away
Beautiful – so hungry
We are to
Return

Because The Moon is Covered, part 2
Through what then will it shine?
Through teshuvah and the sound of the shofar.
–Zohar

2.

I will turn away from here
and approach There
*

Turning —
process not performance
journey not destination

Not sin-based
change-based

Not goal-taking
movement

Unstuck

*Rashi on Exodus 3:3
