Let My People Know

"Even the wisest men find this difficult"

“Much has been said of the love that can be evoked by proper contemplation of the Divine.

It is important to bear in mind, however, that not always do things work out in the same way for different people.

For instance, the Shulchan Aruch, The Code of Jewish Law, instructs the reader to wake in the morning with the thought that the King of Kings, the Lord Himself, in all His greatness and glory, is standing over him and watching his every move, so that he should bestir himself, jumped out of bed, and begin to serve the Lord as best he can.

However, as we know, even the wisest of men find this difficult.”
