The Sabbath is more than an armistice, more than an interlude; it is a profound conscious harmony of man and the world, a sympathy for all things and a participation in the spirit that unites what is below and what is above. All that is divine in the world is brought into union with God. This is Sabbath, and the true happiness of the universe.

Abraham Joshua Heschel in The Sabbath: Its Meaning for Modern Man by Abraham Joshua Heschel


To Practice This Thought:
Rest for one day this week. Try not to do any of the things you usually do. Instead, tune into the larger world.
