Juicy Jewish Life-Lessons from Fresh-Squeezed Orange Juice
“An olive only releases its (essential) oils when squeezed” so too, life’s pressures, stressors & challenges reveal hidden depths within.
A physics angle: Juicing turns solid into liquid, keeps volume but loses shape, in fact its shape conforms to the container. Let’s maintain identity in new context.
Juicing also tells us how much of that supposed solid was really liquid, how little is left of the orange once its juice is removed. Like body & soul.
Truth is that too much juice isn’t good for you. Liquid carbs lack the beneficial complex fiber of the original fruit. Same with a sweet sip of an idea without its full well-rounded context.
