Jacob at the End of the Ladder

There is a space
Beyond guilt
And struggle
And shame.
The space where the ladder ends
And we all begin.

The climb, though necessary,
Is not worth everything.
And that which is worth everything is more precious than even the highest rung.

G-d shelters and reveals in the unknown.
When we stop pushing and start embracing, we will finally find ourselves on holy ground.
