Less is MORE

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 4:53 pm

The more things you have, the more responsibility you then have to elevate the fallen sparks within each thing you have. But if you don’t know how to do this, the more materialism you have or attach yourself too, the greater your confusions. This is because within each thing, there is a spiritual essence or it cannot exist. it is calling out to be used for G-Dliness and be used to serve Hashem. So why would you want more when you can live simply and be less confused. The only reason you should want anything more is because you feel that item will help you serve Hashem & you will thereby elevate it. But even then, you would have to be sure that your intentions are true. Because if they are not, more materialism equals more confusion.
