Shavua Tov! It's the 29th of Elul, the final day of Tikkun HaChodeshim 5775!
In Elul we refine our discernment, and
the morning Shofar call is meant to be an auditory attunement
of our souls. Without the right attunement, we go "off key", and that
manifests itself in a critical spirit and punishing perfectionism.
"Attunement" is very close to "Atonement" - the way to atone for being
out of tune is to deeply, profoundly integrate the reality that nobody
and nothing is "perfect". Fixing the distortions of context and
perspective heals discernment, and healthy discernment becomes wisdom.
