Even though, at times, we may think we are alone, we are not. We are never alone in this world. I remember learning this as a child when I was thrown into a pit by some children. I couldn’t escape and I truly thought I would die there. In that moment, I heard a voice tell me I would be fine and that the things that I have experienced and will experience are all to teach me about how to be there for others. From that moment on I searched to understand all I could about the metaphysical aspect of life. I knew that there were angels around us, and that there was a force always watching over us. In the dark times of our lives, it is easy to forget this. I know that life can be difficult, but I promise, behind the dark clouds, the sun is still shining. That is our promise from the Creator. We have not been sent to this world without purpose or without tools to aid us. This week, we are sent the greatest tool of all, the Torah. On Saturday night, the holiday of Shavuot occurs. It is the only day of the year that could spiritually receive the immense Light of the Torah. On this day on Mt. Sinai, the Torah was presented to the people of the world to guide us, help us, and purify us. We were sent to this world with the love of the Creator. Even though we may not always see the presence of the Light in our lives, it is steadfast and always there. This week, we are reminded of this powerful energy and the voice within that can lead us through the dark nights of our lives.
