When I’m not invested in mission or distracted by the simple pursuits of life… I feel a deep ache.

The world is not as it should be. Most pursuits are vanity. Very little is rightly aligned to Heaven.

I see now why the believers of the first few centuries struggled with living the normal life. They thought that a life for G-d was too difficult to live in the middle of the cities, going about a normal life after having been so deeply awoken by The Divine. They vacated places of normal and sought G-d wholly.

L-rd, let me not get distracted by the many paths of vanity, but keep my compass set on Your Kingdom. Let me not forget the ache of the earth and the call to be a son in the midst. Let us resonate with the signature of Heaven, offering a path to Your Throne. Help me to console You while here on this ill-organized cosmos. Let Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Let Your Normal become our normal.
