“Each of us has a ‘life vision.’ The Torah teaches that when one’s ‘vision’ is driven by a connection with God, then the ability to achieve transcends all boundaries. Since God can do anything, all success depends only on His will.

 

Without that connection, one’s ability to achieve is defined by mortal limitations. It is logical, therefore, to assume that many goals are not possible. Hence the origin of the popular expression, ‘I can’t do it; it’s not possible.’

 

But it needn’t be that way. Living in accordance with the will of God [brings an awareness that ultimately He manages everything. This knowledge opens the channel of higher connection with God and makes us a vessel capable of receiving a higher level of divine light. This in turn translates into spiritual and physical growth and allows us to achieve things we might have thought impossible].”
