On occasion, I’ve been accused by someone whom I’ve shared the last 20+ years of my life with…of being “a dreamer”.


On its own, it sounds like a pretty nice compliment. Who wouldn’t want to be called “a dreamer”? But when it comes on the heels of my proposing yet another new business idea I want to pursue (one that typically requires an upfront investment of time and significant money down) being called “a dreamer” has a certain skeptical tone to it. 

Yet, despite my numerous failed attempts at fame and fortune, deep down, I still continue to dream. 

 As Ralph Kramden on the Honeymooners TV show used to say:

 “One day, Alice. One day. My big ship will come in.”

 However, in this week’s Parsha, I believe, is the dreamer’s secret to success. 

 For this commandment which I command you this day, is not concealed from you, nor is it far away….Rather, [this] thing is very close to you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, so that you can fulfill it. (Devarim 30, 11-14)

 Here, the Torah prescribes a sequence for successful accomplishment. And not just any accomplishment, but the greatest of all accomplishments - fulfillment of the entire Torah. 

 A goal so huge, that it inspires the following skeptical reaction: 

 "Who will go up to heaven for us and fetch it for us, to tell [it] to us, so that we can fulfill it?"

 "Who will cross to the other side of the sea for us and fetch it for us, to tell [it] to us, so that we can fulfill it?"

 Sure, for dreamers like me, it’s no problem. Let’s jump right in and do it! 

 But how is it possible for a level-headed, rational human being to fulfill the entire Torah? 

 The Torah tells us how. 

 “It is in your mouth…”

 First, you need to verbally articulate the goal, consult with mentors and peers for the best way to go about doing it, and perhaps most importantly, pray to G-d for help with it. 

 “It is in your heart…”

 Next, you need to align all of your energies and attention towards achieving your goal. Visualize the outcome until your heart is 100% congruent with it. 

 (As an aside - There’s a story about the history of Disney World. Walt Disney died in 1966, five years before the opening of his mega-popular theme park. On opening day in 1971, two ride operators were overheard talking with each other:

“It’s a pity Walt never got to see his dream brought to life”, one worker said to the other.

 “That’s not true”, his friend replied. “We’re only seeing this park today because Walt saw it first.”)

 Fulfill it.”

 Only after you’ve laid the solid foundation of the first two steps, should you now get to work, step-by-step, fulfilling your dream.  

 Fools rush in, as the saying goes. However, if we follow the Torah’s sequence of: mouth, heart, and then action, we are guaranteed success. 

 Good Shabbos
