And we FAST....

and we 'empty out'...
and we reflect....
and we beg for ATONEMENT....
We are so sorry for our indiscretions....
We are wholly mindful of our mistakes...
And....
We take stock, so to speak....
inventory...
"checks and balances"...
We determine the weight and depth of our hearts on the measuring scale of "moral veracity"...
Or rather...
GOD does....
And we beg for FORGIVENESS...
And we PROMISE to be 'better' than before...

But what of our GOOD DEEDS ?
Do we MENTION those as well ?
Is it ALL based on our NEGATIVE ACTS ?
Can we be HUMBLE while still being AWARE of our own, innate GOODNESS ?
of our KINDNESSES ?

Food for thought on this NON FOOD occasion...
Wishing you ALL a SAFE and MEANINGFUL YOM KIPPUR....
