Elul and Rosh Hashana – Part 2

“In Elul we say that the King is in the field… Generally we think of the ‘King is in the field’ as conveying that HaShem is more accessible to us, i.e. to our prayers and our strivings.


But it is also true that we are more accessible to HaShem… that the channels of ruach hakodesh [Divine inspiration] are more free-flowing in Elul. That HaShem is letting us know what He wants from us, and what He wants us to be praying for.


And so it is a time of not just formulating and reciting our prayer-vision (which is important), but to also ask HaShem to help us grow in our capacity [to perceive and understand His communication with us – by being able to properly read the events, even the minor ones, in our daily life].”
