G-d energises everything Dear Rabbi Gordon,
I am not very familiar with Kabbalah. I have understood that Good and Bad are both energised by G-d. What about the Nazis? They were /are human. I am finding it difficult to see them acting within G-d's "intention". I see them as enemies of Heaven. Could it be that they are also energised by Heaven? Reply

Daily Tanya 10-31-11 Sorry for the delayed response. Good question. I believe I said that G-d wanted this fellow to interrupt this man's prayers’. We only have free choice when it comes to moral issues. For all other issues, we are subject to Divine Providence; therefore, if someone else's choice affects us negatively, that effect must (as far as we are concerned) come from G-d to us. Reply

dAILY tANYA 10-31-11 I have a question. You said G-d wanted to send the distracting child to interrupt the discussion. If i am doing something self destructive does this mean G-d wants me to be bad to myself? If so why? Please help me with this. really enjoyed your lesson but I'm confused.
