Q&A: Get Out of Egypt

Q: I am very dissatisfied with the way I am living my life. Let me just say that it is a far cry from a moral, religious lifestyle. As badly as I feel, however, I keep falling into the same pits. I can’t seem to get out of this place, break away from my immoral behavior, and progress to a better place. Can you help me?

A: In order to 'get' out, you have to give a 'get' (divorce) to Egypt. Every Jewish soul has within it an actual part of God. However, as long as one is absorbed with his own ego and pride, that part of God in his soul is hidden, in exile in Egypt. One must drive out the evil by swearing faithfulness to the God of Israel exclusively, "There is nothing else but He!" It is within your means to accomplish this, as you have free will.
