    Beautiful class! Nothing like loosing oneself with the Alte Rebbe….

    The end of the shiur might have given an impression that you can find Divine ecstasy and oneness in a marriage and that might set up false expectations and disappointment.

    Ester Perel quote:

    In our quest for the “soul mate”, we have conflated the spiritual and the relational as if they are one and the same. The perfection we long to experience in earthly love used to be sought only in the sanctuary of the divine….We’ve brought heaven down to earth and now happiness is no longer just a pursuit, but a mandate….

    We expect one person to give us what once an entire village used to provide.

    Thank you. Your explanation of rotzu explains why you have so many repeat customers coming to learn every morning.
