The Light

Refining Our Receivers

If we want to experience contact with the Creator, we have to invest energy in refining our receivers.

To allow the Divine into our lives, we align our own ways with the Creator’s way – we straighten out what’s bent, and expand the good. It’s the work of a lifetime.

Rabbi Baruch Gartner, Living Aligned

Light Needs A Vessel

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

With Your Heart

G-d (Hashem) wants you to know the truth in your mind, but the  main thing He wants, is for you to internalize it in your heart! The holy Shema Prayer reads: “You should love your G-d with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might”, and later it says “And internalize these things into your heart.”

Hashem wants you to choose Him with your heart, with your innermost being, with your happiness. Hashem wants your happiness!! And how can you be happy if you are serving Hashem only intellectually? Without putting your heart into it?

Adapted from Hashem Wants Your Heart, by Rav Dror

For the Sake of HaShem

Everyone must know that the essence of Divine service is to serve HaShem in truth. At every moment, examine and investigate all of one’s actions, even the good things and mitzvot that one does. If one finds in them (G-d forbid) any mixture of intent, pointing in any other direction (G-d forbid), or whether it be enjoyable, to the honor of oneself; we see that (such a one’s) intent of Divine service is not for the sake of HaShem’s holy, honorable, and awesome Name. All such a one’s actions are not for the sake of HaShem alone, in truth, and with a pure heart.
