Do you want to keep your mind creative and stress free?
Here is the recipe:
This week we read about (ritual) impurity (the portion of “Parah”).
The definition of “pure” is: “Not mixed or adulterated with any other substance or material.”
In the case of ritual impurity it is the mix of life and death, but on a daily basis impurity occurs when we allow unnecessary information into our minds. Either in the form of a negative piece of news, or even just reading or watching things that we can’t do anything about but they inevitably affect our thinking.
We don’t have to expose ourselves to everything just because it is available, and in many cases it robs us of the focus we need to live a functional and productive life.
Keep your mind pure and the quality of your life will increase dramatically!
