Attach Yourself

Attach Yourself

Attach yourself to the Creator with complete love. This must surpass your love of any worldly good, because everything is rooted in the Divine.

Repeat the following statement: “I want to do God's will, to cause Him joy, and to worship Him without interruption.” Attach yourself to the Upper World – to the Divine…When you have an everyday need, remember that you are moving downward from the Upper World. Imagine that you are like a person who leaves his home, but wants to return as soon as possible. As this person journeys, he is constantly asking himself, “When will I return home?” You, too, must constantly think of returning to the Upper World. Remember: your true home is with the blessed Creator.
