Guide for the Perplexed Very moving lecture about Maimonides. There's one lesson I can learn from this. I need to remind myself that i need to come down from the mountain and not just only see one half of the total picture. It is hard to leave the comfort of G-d and all the worlds He has created. I can not be selfish about sharing the knowledge of the Torah. i need to learn to interface with other Torah scholars to help bring balance of the good and bad inclinations. It is hard to separate from G-d's presence even for a second, He, blessed be His name, keeps me safe. Reply
