Saturday afternoon at the Shabbes table, a man told the following lesson from Torah:
Before God created the world, He created two forces: the force that gives and the force that receives.
After a while, the force that receives said, “I’m full. I do not want to receive anymore.”
The force that gives wanted to continue giving and it became frustrated.
And that is how evil came into the world.
Immediately, I thought “That is the spiritual blueprint for my relationship with David. Wow, just wow.”
I am the force that gives and when he chose to freeze me out, I became frustrated and evil entered our relationship.
In retrospect, I should have turned around and given to someone else.
I did not have to become frustrated just because David is an idiot narcissist.
I could have turned to someone who would appreciate me. Then we could give and receive and receive and give, both of us becoming both forces and living in harmony.
