Universal Man Plan (Phase III) "The St. Peter"

This is a advanced training plan developed in honor of St. Peter, Leader of the Mighty Men of Christ; He is the patron of those who challenge the seas as well as the hearts of men and women to be fishers of mankind and who have an ardent love for others. The plan works on further developing-your passion, spiritual and physical strength so you may worship God with all your heart, soul and strength.

"Hear, O Israel: 
The Lord our God, the Lord is one;
 and you shall love the Lord your God with all your Heart,
 and with all your soul, and with your entire mind,
 and with all your strength."

          Jewish Purity[1]Mikvah
          • ·         Immersion in the mikvah has offered a gateway to purity ever since the creation of man. The Midrash relates that after being banished from Eden, Adam sat in a river that flowed from the garden. This was an integral part of his teshuvah (repentance) process, of his attempt at return to his original perfection.
          • ·         Before the revelation at Sinai, all Jews were commanded to immerse themselves in preparation for coming face to face with G‑d.
          • ·         In the desert, the famed “well of Miriam” served as a mikvah. And Aaron and his sons’ induction into the priesthood was marked by immersion in the mikvah.

          • ·         In Temple times, the priests as well as each Jew who wished entry into the House of G‑d had first to immerse in a mikvah.
          • ·         the function of mikvah is not to enhance physical hygiene. The concept of mikvah is rooted in the spiritual.
          • ·         Jewish life is marked by the notion of Havdalah: separation and distinction. On Saturday night, as Shabbat departs and the new week begins, Jews are reminded of the borders that delineate every aspect of life. Over a cup of sanctified wine, the Jew blesses G‑d who “separates between the holy and the mundane, between light and darkness, between Israel and the nations, between the seventh day and six days of labor ... . ”
          • ·         In fact, the literal definition of the Hebrew word kodesh—most often translated as “holy”—is that which is separated; segregated from the rest for a unique purpose, for consecration.
          • ·         In many ways, mikvah is the threshold separating the unholy from the holy, but it is even more. Simply put, immersion in a mikvah signals a change in status—more correctly, an elevation in status. Its unparalleled function lies in its power of transformation, its ability to effect metamorphosis.
          • ·         The mikvah personifies both the womb and the grave; the portals to life and afterlife. In both, the person is stripped of all power and prowess. In both, there is a mode of total reliance, complete abdication of control. Immersion in the mikvah can be understood as a symbolic act of self-abnegation, the conscious suspension of the self as an autonomous force. In so doing, the immersing Jew signals a desire to achieve oneness with the source of all life, to return to a primeval unity with G‑d. Immersion indicates the abandonment of one form of existence to embrace one infinitely higher. In keeping with this theme, immersion in the mikvah is described not only in terms of purification, revitalization and rejuvenation, but also, and perhaps primarily, as rebirth.

          Sundays Plan--Recreate and invite God. Celebrate Mass. Plan for next week better than this.
