How To Know God [but for sure] (17:23 Mins)


Faith in God is not an expression of reason or feeling, but it is the most basic self-revelation of the soul’s essence, which needs to be directed according to its own disposition. When we do not destroy the path that is natural for it, it needs no other substantive resources to support it. It finds everything within itself. At a time when it’s light is dimmed, then reason and feeling come to clear a way for it. But even then it must know its worth, and that its aides–reason and feeling – are not of its essence. And when it will remain fixed in its position, then will reason and feeling succeed in clearing the way and in finding rational and moral means of removing the stumbling blocks from its path. ~ Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook, Mamorey HaRiya pg. 36-38
