Yom Kippur – Real Atonement

I am not Jewish, but ever year I think we should all have a sectarian Yom Kippur where we put Forgiveness at the head of the line. We don’t know whom we have hurt, but we certainly know who has hurt us. It makes good sense to wash our karma clean with
repenting of what we did to others. And hope they are equally repenting what they did to us. It is the only way to clear the brush off the trail of our lives and walk a comfortable pathway.
Real atonement is not based on a God, but on our own imperfect hearts that beat and stutter in this world.


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
