“A Jew can be Jewish with God, against God, but not without God.” –Elie Wiesel

Spirituality does not mean we like everything we receive.  We can be angry.  We can believe our situation is completely unfair.  We can believe our higher power is doing a crappy job.  We can shake our fist at the sky in frustration.  None of this takes away from our spirituality.  Anger and spirituality can co-exist.  Walking with our higher power does not mean we like the path or the journey.  It simply means we accept it is the path our higher power has chosen for us.

When have I been angry with my higher power?  Have I let go of my spirituality?  What gifts await me if I allow myself to be with my higher power even when I dislike the path?
