ENJOY WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY: September 24, 2020

I spend “no time fretting [but] found a way to do what I thought important to get done.” Ruth Bader Ginsburg

In Hebrew, Ruth means friend, but metaphysically, Ruth means love. In the bible, in the book of Ruth, we learn that Naomi, Ruth’s mother-in-law, lost both her sons during a time of great famine – and she told her daughter-in-laws that they could go back to their families because she had nothing to offer them.  One daughter-in-law returned, but Ruth – love – stayed. Naomi represents the soul.  When the soul has love, it has everything that it needs.  Love is the heart of good medicine, the ability to attract what we need when we need it. Ruth worked in the fields.  What does this mean?  Immediately love went into action.  Immediately, love sowed and reaped the bounty of the harvest.  Immediately, love fed the soul with unlimited source.

Good medicine led Ruth to work for Boaz, who ended up being Naomi’s wealthy relative, and when he discovered what Ruth was doing for Naomi, he took care of them both.  He fed Ruth (Love is always fed), and she had enough food to share with Naomi and he protected her, told his men not to bother her but to help her in the fields.

Let us center in the power of her love, a greatness just as available in us as it was in her. 

Let us know the families of nations and the equality of all peoples and gender expressions. 


“Work for what you believe in, but pick your battles, and don’t burn your bridges. Don’t be afraid to take charge, think about what you want, then do the work, but then enjoy what makes you happy, bring along your crew, have a sense of humor.”

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

“We should not be held back from pursuing our full talents, from contributing what we could contribute to the society, because we fit into a certain mould ― because we belong to a group that historically has been the object of discrimination.”

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
