Daily Torah Thought - 1/14


"One who knows some of his internal good and bad traits does not know himself at all.

"When our eyes are opened to the potential for growth that is embedded in us, and along with this we see our prejudices and our biases and the trickery and destruction that is also nesting in us, without leaving within ourselves any internal refuge which is safe from negative analysis - that is knowledge of ourselves."

"One philosopher has called this, 'descent to Hell while still alive.'"

(R' Shlomo Wolbe, Alei Shor, Shaar Shlishi)

Have a great day,
