The changes at work are done, and my schedule has been nailed down, so it’s time to get this started.
Things could change/evolve as time goes on, but starting out:
1) I’m going to do the workout posted over at Crossfit Football when I get off work at night, and the daily workout posted at Crossfit Endurance and Mobility WOD first thing the next morning. I may have to substitute (my gym isn’t set up to work for some of the CFFB workouts), and scale (I don’t want to kill myself) from time to time, but my ultimate goal is to be able to handle what’s thrown at me.
3) I’m also looking to break out of a rut and grow as a person, so I’ll try to post a few insights from my day and quotes from stuff I read.
When it comes to crucial life concepts, we sometimes say we “know” something, when perhaps we don’t.
For example, it is a foundation of Judaism that God loves us personally and individually. He listens to our prayers. He desires a relationship with us. He guides and cares for us.
We may say we “know it,” but unless we are living with that reality, we don’t really know it. We’re just paying lip service.
The method to “know” something is through understanding. Embark on a study of Who God is, and why He may act the way He does. As Rebbeinu Bechaye (11th century Spain) writes in “Duties Of The Heart”:
“The Torah encourages you to reflect and exercise your intellect on such themes… Investigate with your reason, understanding and judgment until the truth becomes clear to you and false ideas are dispelled; as it is written, “Know this day and lay it on your heart that the Lord, He is God” (Deut. 4:39). This admonition refers to everything in which rational methods of investigation can be used.”
Once we begin to grapple with the question of God in our lives, then we can truly come to know that He loves us. And from there, great new vistas will open up.
