The life we experience here on this earth is often shrouded in veils of negativity. In fact, in a world that rife with chaos—from earthquakes to widespread flooding to unemployment, terrorist attacks, and war—we may wonder if there is any sure way to be protected.
According to the kabbalists, we have the power, via our positive actions and our ability and Desire to Share with others, to create a spiritual shield that can protect us from any negative thing that crosses our path. Why? Because we live in a world of manifestation, a world where the Creator is revealed through our positive deeds.
Oftentimes, we ask to see God, as a benefit to us, to feel His presence. But in our searching, we frequently overlook the opportunities to experience the Creator that are right in front of us.
