The stony heart does not let us connect with friends. But there is a hole inside the stone through which I can connect with everyone.
It is the stony heart that opens the path to the Creator for us. After all, if it were not for it, I would not even know that there is an obstacle in front of me.
Now I see that there is a barrier and that it is inside my heart. My heart is closed tightly, and I cannot move this stone from the mouth of the well. This means that I cannot do without the help of the Creator.
From the 1st part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 8/30/22, “Unless the Lord builds a house, its builders labor in it in vain”
