Can You Be Kind to Yourself for 21 Consecutive Days?
Tedd Huff: We’re the same person we’ve been since childhood?
Daniel Levin: Life is like a spiral: we start on the edges and get closer towards who we really are at the center.
Tedd: Why did you decide to become a Rabbi, only to stop one day away from completion?
Daniel: A rabbi said to me, “Your problems always exist, but the more deeply we get involved with ourselves, the more strong we become, and we rise up over those problems.” And it made me realize, one day before I was ordained, that I had to leave and do just that in India.
Tedd: What was your answer to “Why were you born Jewish?”
Daniel: To bring a bigger, more comprehensive understanding to the very black and white nature of Judaism.
Tedd: You bring up the idea that our perception of reality is only a part of the whole of reality.
Daniel: 100% guaranteed, the reality that we see is not the total reality. What we do see blocks us from seeing everything else in life. Everything changes with a change in perception.
Tedd: What was your biggest life-altering moment?
Daniel: The death of my parents. The way they loved and accepted me, set an imprint as if that’s what was possible.
Tedd: How did losing your wife test your belief in love?
Daniel: I lost faith in myself, in the God I believed in, in the connections I had with people. It scared the hell out of me. A thought pattern emerged in my head: the people around me tended to get hurt.
Tedd: Did that change how you defined friendship?
Daniel: Let me say this, I think a lot of people think I’m their friend. I don’t think a lot of people are my friend.
