Do You Have A Light?

"God is not a hypothesis derived from logical assumptions, but an immediate insight, self-evident as light. He is not something to be sought in the darkness with the light of reason. He is the light."

A quote from a not so traditional Jew but what I think encapsulates the theme of Chanukah and what the burning candles represent. The deception and darkness [Greece is called "darkness" by Chazal] of reason - against the light of Reality.

"Ki imcha makor chaim, ba'ohrcha nireh ohr" - For You are the source of life - with Your light we will see light. [See Pachad Yitzchak Maámar 9]
