Quote of the day

meme si une personne commet une transgression

"Even if a person commits a transgression - G-d forbid - it is certain that the vitality of G-d is still there." (Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, Likutey Moharan I, 56)

Comment: The more a person is distant from G-d, the more the Divine Light it is hidden from him. Yet, even if the distance which separates an individual from Hashem is huge because of his frequent transgressions, the Creator is always at his side.

The Master of the world does not seek to impose His presence in our lives. Rather, He is always waiting at the door - so to speak - in the hope of seeing it to open. At the slightest sign of us (sincere sorry, honest prayer, tears ...), He rushes to save us and lead us out of where we had fallen.

This is an absolute rule: the Divine Light fills in the universe and no place is free from it. On the other hand, the intensity of this light is proportional to the distance that separates us from the Divine: the more we are closer, the more the greatness. In no case we are completely cut off from this light, never. Our many mistakes can diminish it greatly, but it will always be with us and waiting for a sign from us.
