Souliner: God is both infinite enough (i.e. having no limitations) and humble enough, to advise us, what is in our best interest.

Souliner: Those who fear hate, and those who hate think they are hated, as Rashi teaches, people think that others think about them, what they think about others.

Souliner: Sadness vs. happiness is the ultimate struggle of humanity – ironically because humans think they depend on other humans hence their mistaken trust in “their providers” causes them to emulate negative behavior.

Souliner: What is meaning – whatever you consider meaningful?

Souliner: Sure God could manifest his truth, but then we wouldn’t realize the joy of discerning it ourselves.

Souliner: Life in its easiest differentiation should be discerned as good being kindness, bad being selfishness, and evil being negative energy.

Inside / outside

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are two worlds:

 

Both seem so real that those who live in either one think those who live in the other are delusional!

 

Inside / outside!

 

Which one is more real?

 

Is your feeling more real than your physical body?

 

Is harmony less real than the bodies that seamlessly interrelate?

 

One of the most fascinating things I read was the Rebbe’s letter to the Israeli who became the head of the World-Teacher’s-Association.

 

In it the Rebbe writes, that schools provide two things, namely social skills, for in the playground people learn the necessity of give and take as well as skills, but what it doesn’t teach the person is the intrapersonal world.

 

Judaism and especially Jewish mysticism focus almost exclusively on the real intrapersonal (the inner world of your mind and emotions, for it is from that world that your behavior and you feelings hence you reactions, come from.)
