Daily Thought

Looking at your world from Above, all is good.

Looking at your world from within, things don’t always look so nice.

Until you connect your world from within to the world above. Then the goodness flows downward without distortion.

How do you make that connection? By clinging tightly above. By putting all your trust in G‑d.
