When the Tank Is Running On Empty, BE EMPTY

Menachem Poznanski, LMSW

When the tank is running on empty, BE EMPTY So, it’s been 8 days now and it seems like people are really beginning to struggle and lose energy. The tank seems to be running on empty. In the Inner Wisdom of Torah, the number 8 represents that which is above reality, beyond the seven days of the week. What’s powerful about the Torah view of things is that rest, taking a step back to reflect and recharge is part of the system of action. With six parts we create and on the seventh, we step back to reflect. But what do we do when we hit “Day 8”? What do we do when we pushed resiliently all we can, and then stepped back reflectively and we are still burnt out? What do we do now? When we hit “Day 8’s” we need to LEAN IN to a higher source of power. We need to tap into something beyond the restrictions of sense and sensibility. We need to remember that we are greater than the sum of our parts, that the whole world is greater than the sum of its parts. That there is an unseen factor that transcends the logical because the world of seven parts really has 8. So, Just for Today, if you are feeling what we are all feeling, LEAN IN to a Higher Power, whatever that is to you. Trust the process and remember more energy and resilience are yet to come. An untapped tank is right around the corner.
