Daily Does of G-d’s Wisdom

Words to think about on this day.

Taken from Daily dose of wisdom

“The Holy Ari, Rabbi Yitzchak Luria, taught that each created being, no matter how lowly, is sustained by a divine spark within it. The spark yearns to be reconnected to its source, and that can only be through a human being who will use it for a heavenly purpose.

It is not the sparks that resist, neither is it the world that is enlivened by those sparks. It is only the ego of the one who says, “I will do this mitzvah. I will redeem the Divine.”

“How can you redeem us,” the sparks respond, “if you, too, are imprisoned within the ‘I’?”

And so, the solution to all resistance: Be a quiet hero, one who leaves that ego behind.”
