Food for thought: Close to holinesss

image: mine

As Rabbi Abraham of Slonim taught, "Contrary to what one might think, it is possible sometimes to come closer to God when you are involved in material things like eating and drinking, than when you are involved with 'religious' activities like Torah and prayer. Because when the heart opens up due to . . . pleasure . . . then is the fit time to come close to holiness."
