    We say Krias Shema twice daily

    Why then also at other times, like Yom Kippur,  taking out a sefer Torah, on the cusp of death, etc.?

    A wild horse is full of power, uncontrolled

    But it's power isn't harnessed for good.

    The bucking bronco must be broken. Broken, but not killed. A dead horse is useless.  But a horse that's broken and tamed,  i.e., harnessed can now be ridden on, hitched to a wagon, etc. We sublimate but do not destroy

    We don't want to extinguish someone's fire ...

    Another paradox. A fine line between what to do, how to behave and what not to do and how not to behave.

    Kriah Shema determines quality and quantity of life

    What then, of the 85% of yidden who know not of Kriah Shema?
