Thimble 65 - for Rosh Hashanah

Today is the Jewish New Year - Rosh Hashanah. It is as much a time to reflect as to celebrate. A personal time to look at your own Spiritual journey - where you have been and where you want to go in the New Year.

A tradition I really like the idea of is "Tashlich".
'On Rosh Hashanah, many Jews may follow a custom called tashlich ("casting off") in which they walk to a naturally flowing body of water such as a river or stream, recite several prayers, reflect upon their sins over the past year and symbolically cast them off by throwing their sins into the water (usually by throwing pieces of bread into the stream).'

Wouldn't it be nice to wash away all the world's anger and hate and start each new year completely fresh and clean?

Shalom! Peace!


  1. I was telling my clients yesterday about the Jewish New Year, they all had no idea about it at all, and none really cared, it is part of my journey to share love and peace with all I encounter, offering little pieces of inspiration to see us ALL as ONE....

    Peace ♥

  2. I love how you see things, Gemel. Yes, all we can do is thimblefuls. ;-)

Can one everyday person really make a difference and change the world? Isn't that a bit like trying to empty the ocean with a thimble?

Maybe... but what if you got everyone to help you?
What if we bailed with a billion thimbles?

These are my Thimblefuls for Peace... I hope they make you think.
