Chanukah: The Triumph of the Soul over the Ego

The light of the Chanukah menorah symbolizes the light of faithRabbi Ashlag teaches that since a person is as a small world events on the outside are reflected within ourselves.In this way we can find the elements of the Chanukah story within ourselves. The Greek part of ourselves  represents that part of the ego  that likes the certainty of logic and reason… whereas the Jew is the aspect of ourselves that  relates to faith, which belongs to a different paradigm altogether. This is our own inner enactment of the story of Chanukah, in whihc God delivered the many into the hands of the few, and  the mighty into the hands of the weak.
