Rock Bottom

At the peaks of life, you can catch a glimmer of the light of your soul.

When you hit rock bottom, you can touch its very core.

Maamar Vekibel Hayehudim 5738.

From the wisdom of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, of righteous memory; words and condensation by Rabbi Tzvi Freeman. To order Rabbi Freeman’s book, Bringing Heaven Down to Earth, click here.
Tree, o' tree, with what can I bless you? That your fruit should be sweet? Your fruit is sweet. That your shade should be plentiful? Your shade is plentiful. That a stream of water should run beneath you? Water runs beneath you. The one thing left for me to bless you is: May all the plantings from your seed be like you!
— Talmud, Taanit 5b
