(endurance within harmony)

The center will not hold, unless our center is not predicated strictly upon a sense of self; rather, only a central focus on G-d, will support a sense of balance, by way of transcending ourselves. The ego thrives on pride, and a sense of accomplishment attributed to the efforts made by oneself. Yet, because we are limited beings, this kind of image, focused on self will not endure. True harmony within may only endure through help from Above; otherwise, the weight of our own world will drag us down. “Cast your burdens upon H’Shem (the L-RD), and He will sustain you” (Psalm 55:23).
