Birthday – private New Year's Day (Rosh Hashanah) for spiritual growth
A modest gift or a sparkling party? A self-examination or a social gathering? A turning point or a trivial date?
What does a birthday mean? What options lie in this day? How should you celebrate your birthday to make the most out of it? What time means, and how does a birthday affect its utilization?
According to Kabbalah and Chasidism's wisdom, a birthday is the private New Year's Day (Rosh Hashanah) for a person, which serves as a key to spiritual prosperity and material success. Just as Rosh Hashanah, the first day of creation of man and his birthday, includes the life power of all year round, so the birthday serves as the head for all future occurrences throughout the year.
From this approach, readers are invited to recognize the intensity of the day's impact on the rest of the year and discover the power of birthday decisions to remove barriers that hinder us in our life trajectory.
