Dear Jorge,
We need to be bold to state an opinion.
But humble enough to step down,
when our rabbinical
Colleagues out rule us.
May you continue to be proud and strong. Reply

Sometimes a feel afraid of making comments, but this time I have to be like a mountain -bold! Not too bold because that would be arrogant. This is more easily said than done.
I cannot dare to say to myself -"I have no right to study Torah", I have to program myself for not to be intimidated by those ideas.
It's very interesting to learn that of the Rabbi who said -"I'm right in my own opinion" and to prove it, he said... -I'm right that the stream would change its course. And the stream changed its course. I'm right that I heard a heavenly voice coming along saying I'm right.
And his colleagues don't agree with him. Why? Torah is not in heaven; Torah must be comprehended down here in this world. Reply
