“The reinvention of daily life means marching off the edge of our maps.” – Bob BlackReinvention

Bob Black is an American anarchist and lawyer. He is the author of The Abolition of Work and Other Essays, Beneath the Underground, Friendly Fire, Anarchy After Leftism, and numerous political essays.

How often have things happened in our lives that have thrown us off course? News of a death, an illness, losing jobs, issues with children, divorce, personal tragedy and loss of a spouse or child and the list goes on. These are times when we deeply question why these things have happened and how we are going to get through them. These are tough questions with no easy answers.

I know from my own personal experiences that I have learned that I cannot get through these challenging moments within whatever spiritual space I am currently in. The need to reinvent myself emerges and I strive to identify where I need to move my thinking and faith to allow me to prevail with the challenges life has put in my path.

As a Rabbi and Spiritual Counselor, I am confronted with this challenge daily in helping others achieve this very act of reinvention or refocusing based on circumstances that occur without warning.

Staying where I am can only cause me greater stress, confusion and anger. It is always incumbent upon me to move me into a place of acceptance with a clear action plan to help me stay in my faith and hope. Reinventing me allows me to grow and be at one with me and the universe I am in, even when this is painful and difficult.

My prayer for you today is that you find the courage to reinvent yourself as you need to so you may cope with life’s challenges as the visit you.

I am a modern and independent Rabbi with an MSW Degree and 24+ years of sobriety providing addiction counseling focusing on healing, spiritual guidance and personalized life cycle events.
