Rav Kook: A Torn Soul

A Torn Soul

Whoever has said that my soul is torn spoke well. It is certainly torn. I cannot imagine a person whose soul is not torn. Only a lifeless object is whole, but a human being is filled with conflicting desires, and an inner war rages within him continuously. The purpose of all my work is to mend the rents within my spirit by means of an all-inclusive viewpoint in whose greatnessand exaltedness everything is embraced and comes to complete harmony.
