Shine Bright

“Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness”    Anne Frank

“In Hebrew teaching, Ruach is the part of the flame closest to the wick. Nephesh is the part of the wick closest to the flame.”
J. Earp

Ruach – It is received via knowledge, teachings and revelations.

Nephesh – It’s the animalistic part of the soul.

Neshamah – Godly part of the soul

As a layman, I am not able to understand J.Earp’s quote on how Wick & Flame are related to Ruach & Nephesh.

I Request Hebrew Scholars among the readers -to throw some light on this comparison.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
