When did humility become synonymous with submission?
And knowledge synonymous with grandeur?
Are we not to gather firewood to warm others, rather than ourselves?
Can we not nurture our soul’s fire and submit to something greater still?
G-d of our ancestors,
Set our hearts aflame.
But walk us on paths that tread cautiously.
That we learn as we teach.
And teach as we learn.
Knowing the power of the flame but taking special care never to inflict a burn.
