Please help our fellow brothers!

28 09 2009


As we all know, the storm “Ondoy” has devastated parts of Metro Manila and caused damaged to all of the Rural and Provincial Areas around.

May i ask, in behalf of all those whose lives are endangered, to please extend your hand to these people? Of Whosoever heart is filled with genuine kindness, open your heart towards them and bestow a part of your “Light” to those who are affected.

“Kung ikaw ay naniniwala na puwedeng sirain, kung gayon ay maniwala ka rin na posibleng ituwid (kung ano man ang iyong nasira)…wala namang (dahilan para sa) kawalan ng pag-asa dito sa mundo sa lahat ng bagay.”

Advance Shanah Tova to all of us.

How will you start the year anew, and begin a new life with the Light? So now we must search our ways and mend it, and plant a good seed so that we can reap a good fruit for this coming year. Let us search, and strive to begin a new, before the time comes. So now during this month of Elul we must cultivate the seed which we have plant for the years to come.

Should we waste our time sitting, and watching the hour to pass-by?

Go, and advance now!

Shavua Tov and Advance Shana Tova from Ang Ilaw Philippine Kabbalah Study Group!
