I love bungee cords. There is some question as to who invented them, but whoever it was, I wish it was me. They are unbelievably useful in a variety of situations. However, as great as they are for tying down, attaching, securing, and holding together stuff, they are terrible for us as human beings. The key to a bungee cord is that it springs back into place. A Bungee Cord is a metaphor for all that pulls us back into the bad habits, old patterns, or wayward actions.
What are the cords that you should untie, detach, loosen, and let go of during Elul and the High Holy Days?
