eply into the inner being of
any person his or her "inner
breath" — you willfind good-
ness. The shofar pleads: Re-
turn to that inner core, re-
trieve that power of goodness
which we so often overlook,
but which is inherent in
every person.
Yet another legend: A
short apple tree grew beside
a tall cedar. Every night, the
apple tree would look up and
sigh, believing that the stars
in the sky were hanging from
the branches of its tall friend.
The litle apple tree would lift
its branches heavenward and
plead: "But where are my
stars?"
As time passed, the apple
tree grew. Its branches pro-
duced leaves, passersby
enjoyed its shade and its
apples were delectable. But
at night, when it looked to
the skies, it still felt discon--
tented, inadequate. Other
trees had stars, but it did not.
It happened once that a
strong wind blew, hurling
apples to the ground. As they
fell, they split horizontally.
In the very center of each
apple was the outline of a
star. The apple tree had pos-
sessed stars all along. The
inner core was always good,
and remains so.
As with apples, all the
more with human beings who
must be good. After all, God
does not make junk. The
stars we possess are the seeds
of potential goodness; we
have the power to rise, but
also to fall. What we do with
the inner goodness depends
on each one of us. We can fly
higher than the clouds, or we
can sink deeper than the fish.
Such is the challenge of being
human; majesty and failure
are but a hair's breadth
apart.
A final tale: An artist
made a sculpture of the most
beautiful person anyone had
ever seen. Years later, the
artist decided that it would
be interesting to sculpt the
ugliest human being as a
counterpart to his earlier
work. One night, he found
sprawled on his doorstep the
perfect subject, a dirty, hide-
ous and drunken creature.
The artist gently lifted this
lost soul and carried him into
his studio. He worked
feverishly through the night
to finish his sculpture. The
next morning, in gratitude,
he rose early to tend to his
guest. The artist bathed,
shaved and dressed the man,
only to discover that this piti-
ful figure was the very same
person he had sculpted as the
most beautiful person.
The sounds of the shofar —
short and long, wailing and
rejoicing. They offer us the
choice for success or failure.
Which shall it be? The shofar
teaches that it's up to us.
