Shalom

Shalom.

I love the concept of shalom. I wish we had an equivalent word with the same richness of meaning.

Peace is how it is most commonly translated into my language, but there is so much more…

Peace.

Wholeness.

Harmony.

TRANQUILITY.

Health.

Fullness.

REST.

Prosperity.

Completeness.

Each with the implied modifier “Perfect….” in front of them.

When I started this journey toward abundance, a friend asked me what an abundant life looks like in practice. Of course I couldn’t give her a universal answer… I’m still working on how it actually looks for just ME.

But SHALOM, is what I seek:

To be completely, wholly, well; in perfect harmony.

One thing I find in many other cultures that I miss in my own is the habit of greeting people with words that mean Shalom.

What a wonderful way to live; wishing fullness, wholeness, tranquility on each person you meet, and having it constantly rained down on you as well!

So, on Monday, more than ever, I wish you

SHALOM. 

 

 

Be well.
