God is oneness and we are connected to Him with our soul
In the Likutei Etzot it is written that it is necessary to distance oneself strongly from the advice of ordinary people, since most of them are bad and very flawed advice [Timo Schmitz: La vedra i los yervos – Kual es el antidote para el koraje?. 2 October 2020].

Remembrance and Observance: How we create our worldviews!
In this world we find both, the thing itself and its relationship and there is not a single thing without a relationship as everything is related to something else and nothing exists independently except God – only God exists for Himself. But everything which exists shares a part with the divine. Now how do weContinue reading “Remembrance and Observance: How we create our worldviews!”
On Genesis 1:1
Genesis 1:1 informs us that in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, which is the very first phrase of the Torah. As pointed out plenty of times before in my previous articles, God is comparable to the Dao. “Like the Dao, He is a force that can create anything with deliberation.
