Arvut

Arvut: two people on a boat, when one of them suddenly begins to drill a hole in the boat. His friend asked: “why are you drilling?” and he replied: “what business is it of yours, I’m drilling under me, not under you,” so the first man told him: “Fool, we shall both drown together!”

Indeed, if we set our hearts to answer but one very famous question, I am certain that all these questions and doubts will vanish from the horizon, and you will look unto their place to find them gone. This indignant question is a question that the whole world asks, namely, “What is the meaning of my life?”

Rav Yehuda Ashlag F/Intro. to Talmud Esser Sefirot

This Marathon Has Run Its Course

By JohnC | May 20, 2010

We may think we have everything, but everything no longer satisfies us.

We are still playing the game and chasing transient goals, which we envision as pleasures such as money, honors, and power. After all, what else is there to do in this life.

We look at each other and thoughtlessly follow the current trend. We say to ourselves, “If I behave like everyone else. I’ll feel good.” Then, we choose a certain vague, agreeable goal and chase it, hoping to escape the emptiness.

We must be constantly preoccupied or the eternal questions will haunt us: “What am I living for? What’s happening with my life?”

But sooner or later, the point in our hearts will awaken and we will not be able to focus on mundane issues.

Suddenly, we will understand that this chase was prearranged in order to distract our minds from what is most important.

As long as we closed our eyes to avoid truly seeing, we could run along with the crowd.

But we have exhausted our strength. While everyone else is still racing, we have dropped out. It is simply not appealing anymore; in fact, we find it pointless.

Our will has deepened so much, it no longer allows us to settle for mundane goals. This is when we begin the quest for a higher goal.

Quote of the Day

By JohnC | May 27, 2009

Even if we find people who are great in the Torah, in fear, and in wisdom, yet who are not interested in the secrets of the Torah because of the sublimity of their degree, because they have many possessions with which to occupy their spirit in the treasures of the revealed Torah and wisdom, let it not droop the heart of one who feels an inner sensation, a pressure of the soul’s craving for the way of secrets. For even if we decide that this yearning came to him due to his lack of skills in the revealed matters, so what? In the end, this is one’s share, and one should be happy with one’s lot, for the Lord is near to all them that call upon Him in honest truth.

–The Rav Raiah Kook,

Orot HaTorah (Lights of the Torah), Chapter 10, Item 4
