Eyes Wide Open!

Monday, March 24th, 2014 12:00 pm by shirlala

This year for Pesach, I have been very inspired by my friend Billy Jonas‘s song, “Eyes Wide Open.” I figure, how are we going to journey from our “narrow place”* (our Mitzrayim, hebrew for Egypt) to a life filled with open opportunity, abundance, flexibility and expanse without our eyes wide open?

Billy sings:
You got no idea where to go – what to do
No idea what will pull you through
No idea – well it’s up to you
To keep your EYES WIDE OPEN

Cuz there’s a miracle – waitin’ in the wings
There’s a miracle, gonna make you sing
There’s a miracle – just one thing:
Keep your EYES WIDE OPEN

Check out the song!!

 

*”In Hebrew, Egypt is called Mitzrayim. According to the text on Jewish mysticism, the Zoharthe name is derived from m’tzarim, meaning “narrow straits” (mi, “from,” tzar, “narrow” or “tight”).”
-From “Self Liberation” by Lesli Koppelman Ross, originally published in Celebrate! The Complete Jewish Holiday Handbook
