CLICK

The word click popped into my mind today. I love to talk about how things are a right fit, and it is ok if they are not. So many fun meanings in the definitions below. Then there is more fun with homonyms, words that sound the same but have different spellings and meanings.

Who is in your clique?

What do you click with?

When do you decide to click and change the channel?

Where do you feel in your gut when something clicks?

Why do you look when there is a loud click?

 

I love words and meanings, interpreting life through my own lens and enjoy being aware of how others interpret in a completely different way.

One of my favorite is the Jewish lens, enjoy!

“And G-d placed man in the garden to work it and to protect it.” As we are introduced to the first man created in the image of G-d, we see that he was instructed to be responsible and care for an entire garden, yet he was prohibited from partaking of the fruit of one of the trees. It seems that for some reason, he had to engage in the selfless act of looking after a tree whose fruits he couldn’t enjoy. One of the ideas behind this could be that in order for us to grow spiritually and transcend ourselves, we have to try to get rid of our ego and do something where there isn’t anything in it for us. When we can negate ourselves and behave selflessly, we can become a more spiritual person. In fact, only after Adam learned to do something where there was nothing in it for him was he able to get married. Our marriages — and all our relationships — will usually only thrive if we are more interested in promoting the good of others than of ourselves. Once we learn to do that, we can live the life that most of us are seeking: a life in the garden of Eden (paradise), a garden that can blossom into real, meaningful pleasure.–Shabbat Shalom!Rabbi Jawary
