Daily Kabbalah Quote

“Israel that exiled Shechina with them” (Bavli Talmud, Megillah, page 29)

Exile is a condition of grief about the state of the Divinity and not on our condition. Exile is the sense of loss of connection between us and the Creator, and therefore we are sorry and are pained about this. Any other situation is not called exile. The fact that we shout about the exile once a year, singing and speaking about it does not make our situation in “Exile”. “Exile” means the feeling of regret that the redemption has not come. How many moments during the last two thousand years have we been in the revelation of the Divinity which is called Exile, which means that we regreted that the Divinity is in Exile?

It is for man to pass on his grief that he is situated in exile to the Divinity, towards the Creator – the Creator is the one that is in exile even though it wants to be revealed to the creatures. Which means, the creatures do not need to shout about how bad it is for them, but rather that they do not have the ability to cause satisfaction to their creator.

(Preparation to the Lesson, 4:41-6:36)


Keep Smiling ~ Self-Wealth, 19th Tishrei, 5771

Motivational Quotes

First Class

Look at two people at an international airport: one with a large set of matching luggage — trunks, suitcases, satchels, hatboxes, etc., the other with no more than a small bag. Certainly, the first seems to be wealthier, luckier, happier. But appearances are deceiving. For, the second person, the person with no more than a bag, may be traveling from one luxury house to another — a palace where he need not take even a toothbrush. Both his homes contain full sets of clothing and every other item, large or small, that he might possibly need.

How can we know if this is so? Let’s see how he travels. If he sits in first-class, then our assumption must be true.

Similarly, there are people who need much luggage to travel through life. Otherwise, they feel they are lacking, unfortunate, unhappy. Then there are the people who live with little. Are these the richer or the poorer? It depends on how they travel. If they travel first-class — if there lives are full, satisfying, happy — if they keep smiling no matter what happens — then we must say that they are wealthy. We must say that they are the richer of the two.
