There are times when the noises in our head, the voices, the thoughts are so much we begin to doubt ourselves. The world becomes painful and the path towards our own inner success fades.
This is the lot of the chacham – the person who thinks he is smarter than anyone else. Eventually even the smartest person comes to the realization that he is not in control.
It is the path of the simple one, which leads to true happiness and therefore true success and of course true wisdom.
