How to live with wonder

“…remove your shoes from your feet, for the place upon which you are standing is holy ground.” (Exodus 3:5)

How can we feel the holiness of the moments in our lives?

The Baal Shem Tov had an incredible spin of this verse that provides a way.

The Hebrew word for shoes (na’alecha) also carries the meaning of a lock. And the Hebrew word for feet (rag’lecha) can also mean ‘your habitual behaviors’.

We can open ourselves to the innate spirituality of the world if we live mindfully and don’t go through life on autopilot.

Hashem’s directive to Moses here can be understood as: Remove the lock of living habitually. If you tune in, you can sense the holiness that surrounds us.
