Daily Lift #577

Connecting with the Infinite

"And those who love Your Name will exult in You (Psalms 5:12)." Every time we mention the Almighty's name with love, we are connecting with eternity. We are not merely in the physical spot where we stand or sit. We are between two eternities: The eternity before this moment, and the eternity after this moment. We are connecting with the Infinite. Whenever we say Hashem's name, we should bear in mind that: "He is the Master of all that exists. He always was, He always is, and He always will be" (Shulchan Aruch 5:1)

(Growth Through Tehillim: Exploring Psalms for Life Transforming Thoughts, p. 26)
