Kabbalah Thought for this week

"The Evil Inclination exploits the action of prayer by stimulating feelings of self-righteousness. For this reason, most prayers go unanswered. A holier-than-thou attitude distinguishes the religious apporach to prayer from the authentically spiritual perspective. The latter is replete with humility, whilethe reigious approach fosters conceit and certitude in one's own purity and devotion. ...[W]e should humbly ask The Creator for what we truly need."



A very poignant prayer that gives us comfort:
