The month that we are in right now Cheshvan, has an amazing duel character to it. On the one hand it is the month that Hashem brought the great flood to the world in the time of Noah. On the other hand our Sages teach that it will be the month where the 3rd Holy Temple will be inaugurated. When we probe deeper into the nature of the month we see that both outcomes are due to a tremendous down pour of light. Why then do they manifest themselves in such radically different ways? And what can we do in our own lives to ensure that we are able to hold on to the blessings? This is today’s subject.
