Your own preciousness
I really don’t know how much I am worth. If G-d would give me a taste of my own neshama [soul], my whole life would change.
The question is not only if you know that you are precious. Because if I walk around and say, “I am precious, but you… listen, I know you are not,” it means you never tasted your own preciousness.

When do you reach the moment that it is clear to you; “What do I really love? What do I really want?” It is at those great moments when you are alone with G-d. When your own preciousness is shining so much. We need this the most.
Why is it that when you stand by the holy Wall something happens to you and you realize, that maybe all those things you want, you don’t really want.
Friends, I just want you to open your hearts. What is the holy Wall? How did King Solomon build the holy Temple? King Solomon collected the preciousness of every human being in the world. Unbelievable. And from that he built the House of G-d. Obviously he didn’t build it just from stones. That is just the outside. But the inside….
