Kabbalah Thought for this week

"Two paths to redemption and eternal peace are always available to us, a Ligh - fillled path that embodies mercy ad protection, or a darkened path that embodies pain, torment, and suffering. Our egos constanly urge us towards the path of darkness. Through a meditative, intense introspection, we can help ourselves and the world at large, avoid he potential gloom and devastation that attends the path of darkness."



A very poignant prayer that gives us comfort:
