Visiting The World
A beautiful short story is indicative of the truth that has been lost in our worldly entanglements.

Once an American tourist called on the Polish rabbi Hafez Hayyim. The tourist was intrigued by the fact that the Rabbi's house was simply filled with books. His house was very simple with only a table and a bench for furniture.

The surprised visitor enquirer, “Rabbi, where is your furniture?

The puzzled visitor asked, “Mine???, well I am only a visitor"

“So am I," said the Rabbi

A beautiful story which, alerts one from the fancy of the dream world.
