I am not certain what makes a good person. G-d showed me a sign today but I will keep this to myself. I try and do good deeds and read the Torah daily but sometimes I think bad thoughts. I wish I didn't.
Perhaps someone will help me out there. Reply

Seeking 'oneness'. You've reminded me of a wonderful story that was told at a 60'th B''H! wedding anniversary:
A little old man, and a little old woman were waiting to see the doctor. Finally they are asked into the office and the doctor asks 'Who is not feeling well today?' 'What can I do to help?' The little old man replies: 'Doctor, we have a cold'.

They have achieved that 'oneness' that so many strive for. They are 'one' couple. Each feels the pain, the joy of the other. The sense of sharing has obliterated the self and together they are one. That essence is what some may describe as 'soul mates' not as a gift from above but as a treasure that each has given only to the other: themselves.

I am my beloved's. My beloved is mine. What remarkable words that are repeated each day, As G-d renews His marriage with the children of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, each day, in a promise that will never be broken, for all eternity, we too must respond and be worthy of His love and seek 'oneness' with Him.
