In the original Broadway cast recording of the classic musical Fiddler on the Roof, the most buoyant and rousing number is "To Life." At a local inn in a small Russian town, a group of hard-working Jews sing: "God would like us to be joyful even when our hearts lie panting on the floor." A wedding is on the horizon and so in great conviviality they exchange toasts. The magic moment comes when they conclude: "And if our good fortune never comes, here's to whatever comes!" That is the heart and soul of the spiritual practice of zeal. Drink deep and experience the passion of truly being alive no matter what happens.
