Kabbalah Thought for this week

"Each day in our lives presents us with opportunities to fulfill our personal spiritual mission in life and complete our transformaion. Unfortunately, most people fail to realize the meaning of life and the purpose of their existence. Each lost opportunitycreates a negative blockage that diminishes and dims the Light of The Creator in ourlives. It is within this expanding darkness that turmoil, hardship, pain and suffering are born. Thus, it beooves us to awaken to the spiritual truths of our existence, so that we may develop ourselves spiritually."
