Each of us also has the ability to “channel” God.
When we forget ourselves in prayer, we let God enter.
When we give tzedaka – not as an expression of our power, but as an agent of God in the distribution of His bounty – we are God’s conduit into the world.
And when we learn Torah as a way of unifying our minds with His, we are increasing God’s presence on earth.
This Shavuot, and every day, each of us has the ability to receive the Torah – our Torah – and become a vehicle for holiness.
–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
