Rabbi Steinsaltz: “Some people have living teachers, some have dead teachers”

 

Rabbi Steinsaltz writes:

Some of us at least have a grasp, to a greater or lesser extent, of some existence that is beyond the purely mental plane of existence, and occasionally find a way to a world or worlds above us.

This climb is theoretically possible almost independently, because it is the individual’s heritage, but practically speaking, for most people it is impossible without help.

Some people have living teachers, some have dead teachers, but they still have teachers.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
