Sometimes our individual paths converge with others’ on this journey of faith, and it is nice to have someone to walk with. However, sometimes, our paths begin to separate, and we have to be willing to say, “I’ll be praying for your journey; please pray for mine. I hope we’ll meet again very soon!”
We must be faithful to walk our own path of purification, and let them walk theirs. If we’re meant to walk together again, Hashem can make that happen. And if we never cross paths again in this life, know that if we remain faithful to our Master, we will still be headed to the same destination; one day we’ll embrace and truly be one in the coming Kingdom.
