Quote of the day

vitality

"Absolutely nothing can exist without having in it the vitality of G-d." (Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, Likutey Moharan I, 56)

Comment: In every aspect of our world G-d exists and is present. Of course, this is easily understandable when we talk about holy things (prayer, study of the Torah ...) Yet, G-d is also in the places that are clearly far removed from Him and His will.

One of the major pleasures of prayer, study of the Torah, the mitswoth ... is to know that Hashem is close to us during them. Conversely, when a person did what he did and fall spiritually in a very low level, he can believe that the Creator is not close to him anymore. This thought is not true and it comes from the evil inclination.

In fact, it is very important to know that the world is filled with G-d's glory. No matter what we did and where we are: Hashem is constantly with us. The Master of the world is waiting for one thing: that we call Him to let Him come to help us. The Creator never abandons us, even if we are very far from him, G-d forbid.
