WHAT’S NEW? Happy New Year! Tonight is the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah for the year 5772. To celebrate, we usually dip apples into honey to remind us of the sweetness of life, and to wish for that sweetness to extend to all people in the upcoming year. It is the time to start anew, and at the end of the next nine days begins Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement when God inscribes us into the Book of Life for anther year.
On that day Jews worldwide fast and make amends for all hurtful deeds and actions taken in non-awareness. I like to think of it though as the Day of At-One-Ment when we have the opportunity to forgive, let go and make our hearts so light that we merge with Spirit. It does not matter what religion you follow if any – I always enjoy having yet another reason to wish all those I love the very best in life – and pray for abundance in all directions, health, and peace in each human mind. Do post what you think below!

Transform your life. Rewrite your destiny.
In his most personal novel to date, internationally best-selling author Paulo Coelho returns with a remarkable journey of self-discovery. Like the main character in his much-beloved The Alchemist, Paulo is facing a grave crisis of faith. As he seeks a path of spiritual renewal and growth, he decides to begin again: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the landscapes around him.
Setting off to Africa, and then to Europe and Asia via the Trans-Siberian Railway, he initiates a journey to revitalize his energy and passion. Even so, he never expects to meet Hilal. A gifted young violinist, she is the woman Paulo loved five hundred years before—and the woman he betrayed in an act of cowardice so far-reaching that it prevents him from finding real happiness in this life. Together they will initiate a mystical voyage through time and space, traveling a path that teaches love, forgiveness, and the courage to overcome life’s inevitable challenges. Beautiful and inspiring, Aleph invites us to consider the meaning of our own personal journeys: Are we where we want to be, doing what we want to do? Some books are read. Aleph is lived.
So, pick up of Aleph today! When you purchase a book through Amazon.com a small percentage of your dollars come back to JOTS to support our free teleclass series.
“Look at children. Of course they may quarrel, but generally speaking they do not harbor ill feelings as much or as long as adults do. Most adults have the advantage of education over children, but what is the use of an education if they show a big smile while hiding negative feelings deep inside? Children don’t usually act in such a manner. If they feel angry with someone, they express it, and then it is finished. They can still play with that person the following day.”
