“We all came to this world with empty vessels. Even a king born in a castle comes to this world with empty hands. When the soul departs from this world it goes up to the World of Truth with a sack full of good deeds in hand.
The only way to rise up to the World of Truth as thoughtful people with a sack full of good deeds is by going out of ourselves, collectively sharing with true concern for others. We are all so busy looking out for ourselves and making our way in the world that we forget how insignificant our ego needs really are.”
-Rav Berg, Days of Power
