|Acquiring Torah 49: Ramchal: Derech Eitz Hachaim XV|
|Written by Machberes Avodas Hashem|
The wise man who understands matters correctly, will, through his insight into origins, perceive that all the affairs of this world amount merely to man’s involuntary subjection to the Serpent’s view, whereby he cannot remain on one path in God’s service day and night but must follow the vanities of this world.
Let him, therefore, choose the minimum of evil, restrict his worldly activity as far as he can and try to engage in the study of the Torah and the service of God to the utmost. (Ramchal; Derech Eitz Hachaim XV)
