Now that Rosh Hashana is over are you going back to your old ways?
Hopefully not… But I will do whatever it takes to at least keep the change till after Yom Kippur.
We’re not ignoring the question, we’re thinking….
Each day that I wake up i try hard not to go back to my old ways.
Let’s hope not. However change is a process it doesn’t happen in a day or even in 10 days.
Well, I’m back on the Coffee Room. 🙂
I have already returned to my old ways of not observing Tekias Shofor after Schacharis which I had been performing for an entire month.
Except for the past four days, since Erev Rosh Hashana.
If you could say you have (had) different “ways” before – after R”H, the problem isn’t relapsing, it’s that there was never any change in the first place.
Going back to your old self after R”H would be like proclaiming Hashem your King, then not doing your duty as His creation. The holidays are like a step by step process for us. -Elul, realize we’re about to proclaim Hashem our King. -R”H Hashem is who we serve. -AYT with Hashem as our King, we better measure up. He decides our fate based on our behavior. -YK is a day to really cleanse ourselves so we can serve our King better. -Sukkos is where we demonstrate our faith in our King. We live in huts simply because He said so.
The Creator of the universe is our King! I hope we can measure up.
