Sweet Dreams - Vayetze



In this week’s Parsha, Yaakov left his hometown and traveled towards Charan. Amidst his travels, Yaakov paused his journey because he felt the urge to go to sleep. While Yaakov slept, he dreamt that angels were ascending and descending a ladder stretched from heaven to earth. Additionally, Hashem informed Yaakov that his descendants would inherit the land, and Hashem would keep Yaakov safe until he returned to Charan. When Yaakov awoke, he placed a monument there, pledging that the place will forever be holy.


One particular day this past week, I was having a difficult day. During that day, I thought to myself; I wish that I could lay down on the ground and dream of Hashem the same way that Yaakov did. Shortly after that, I realized that my plan wouldn’t be realistic because laying down on a bunch of rocks in the middle of an evening may be unusual to most bystanders.


Practically, I'm not at the level that sleeping on the floor causes a revelation of Godliness. Although I know that if we learn torah, do mitzvos, and practice good deeds, we will merit to see the ultimate revelation of Godliness with the coming of Moshiach!


Good Shabbos

All the best!
