Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “For some the way of joy is natural.”

“Everyone can and should learn from others the proper way of doing things, but in the end each person has to follow his own winding path to the goal that is his heart’s desire.

Some lives have an emotional emphasis;

others, an intellectual;

for some the way of joy is natural;

for others existence is full of effort and struggle;

there are people for whom purity of heart is the most difficult thing in the world, while for others it is given as a gift from birth.”
