Reaching higher

Parsha Archei Mot- Kedoshim

(Vayikra, 19:2): “… Kedoshim tihyu ki kadosh ahni HaShem Elokeichem …” You will be holy, for holy am I, HaShem your God.

Kedusha – there is no real translation for this word. Its not just to sanctify, its not just holy. Kedusha is living my life above my own nature. Wherever I am in spiritual and moral terms, kedusha implores me to reach higher. Good shabbos, shabbat shalom!
