I had met this man who said to me, "I bet if it came down to it, everyone would be running after their own lot. They may think they want something else."

Yes this is for you. you are not alone. That we are created in the image. the image isn't our own. So there's nothing that can happen that itsn't part of some scheme. Ever the need for alone time- ever a theme. Invited in.

invite Gd in, and no one is written out of the Book of Life. No one in the world. And in the sukkah, this prayer is heard.

So when it's time for Purim which means lots, or Yom Ki-ppur (a day Like Purim) we go after our own lot. Pray for what we have, even our safety nets, prayers for the world . . . Jealousy is insignificant.  

Invited in. We have invited Gd in, everyone is in the book of life. Every one in the world. In the sukkah, this prayer is heard.
