Light needs a vessel to contain it. A vessel without light is an empty shell, but light without a vessel has nowhere to dwell.
The vessel is a conduit – designed to carry the flow of Divine light and mercy.
And the flow isn’t only meant for you; it’s meant for the whole world.
You dance with the Divine — you follow particular steps to stay aligned — and the Divine energy just flows.
It flows into you and through you, and reveals G-dliness throughout the world.
Rabbi Baruch Gartner, Living Aligned
