Thought of the Week with thanks to Rabbi Menachem WolfWhen analysing Joseph’s life – his youthful aspirations, being sold into slavery, spending time in prison and becoming Pharaoh’s right hand man – we find a single practice in his behaviour: mindfulness. Not the classic Buddhist mindfulness, rather the Jewish practice of mindfulness.

Josef was forever aware that he was where the will of the Divine Consciousness wanted him to be. He lived with this attitude and it dictated his purpose for being, it shaped his behavioural responses. It defined his mission in life.

The attitude and realisation that every moment was a construct of good and a part of the Divine despite its positive or negative veneer, is what ultimately led to the historical course that brought Joseph to Pharaoh and resulted in his appointment to the court of Pharaoh.

Shift your attitude and place meaning in the moment. Become successful.
