Taking Sparks from Another

Chassidus teaches us the importance of binding ourselves to the Tzaddikim. This means to think of them, appreciate them, study their teachings, support them, value them, and place yourself at their feet. Through this, we are able to receive a spark of their holiness into our own souls.

This idea of taking the goodness from another doesn’t just end here. Whenever we look for the good in another, we also take a little of that good into our own midos, characteristics.

Part of growing as a person is learning to appreciate. Today being the Yirtzite of Moshe Rabbenu, I went to Meron as is the normal pilgrimage during this day. We go in order to receive a bit of this spark into our souls. When Rabbi Shimon was alive, he also sought the spark of Moshe Rabbenu, his superior. Though this constant dwelling on the Tzaddik, he was able to receive a strong aspect of Moses soul. Quite remarkable if you think about it.

After my trip to Meron, wanting also to grab more of this holy element. I went to Chanuna Saba who is known to have the soul of Moses as well.

The more we appreciate these holy Tzaddikim and what they brought to the world, the greater the revelation of their soul to us.
