Treasure Island

Our souls are in exile within our bodies. Our people is in exile within a foreign world.

And so there are two things we must know:

That this is not our place.
And that hidden treasure lies buried here; for G‑d dwells in darkness.

If we remember only that this is not our place, we may remain strong, we may even shine in the darkness. But what profit will there be from our exile?

And if we remember only that treasure lies here, we will begin to believe that this is our place, and if so, of what use is the treasure?

Likkutei Sichot, vol. 15, p. 438; vol. 5, pp. 459–461.
