It's all about really enjoying your prayers and also just the basic text of the Torah.
It's about looking at a verse with fresh eyes and saying, "Wow, isn't that just so totally awesome!"
Get emotionally involved in the text.
Probably all of us have some favorite stories from Tanach, a favorite verse or chapter of Tehillim/Psalms, a favorite prayer (or even a favorite verse from within a prayer).
Depending on our background, we connected to them as children or, if we only encountered them later, we connected to them as teenagers or adults.
Part of what held our fancy lay in the newness, the freshness of the experience.
(That happened to me as a teenager with Tehillim, which I wrote about here: part-i-books-that-changed-my-life-tehillim.html.)
As usual, Rav Miller combines his wittily related real-life observations (both the religious foibles & the religious successes) with practical tips for how to start heading in the right direction.
This post is shorter than usual. As I read through the dvar Torah, I just felt so good. From the initial sweet story of the Chafetz Chaim, I started smiling.
So I don't have stuff to pour out in writing this time.
It just feels so nice to get back in touch with that initial appeal & fresh "ooh, shiny!" appeal—like a religious "Eureka!" moment.
