There is a little bit of each of us in everyone we meet. When we smile at each person we pass, we release that spark that belonged to us, that was caught in the other person, so it can return its source. When we call someone who needs cheering, bring flowers to someone who is lonely, pray and recite Psalms for other people and what they lack, apologize to someone - we redeem all of those sparks of ourselves that are in all of the people, those we know about and those we don't know about, because we are all connected to each other!
The Jewish people have a special purpose in this world and that is to bring the world to a more perfect and holier state. We were created to be a light among the nations. Peace and harmony among us is the key to fulfilling our purpose. We can't radiate light into the world if we can't generate light among ourselves.
When does G-d bless us? When we are all as one. The Jewish people had a very special job. We were chosen as the caretakers of G-d's own special house in this world. 2,000 years ago, G-d's house, the Holy Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed because of the baseless hatred we had for each other, and continue to have for each other to this very day. It is said that every generation that does not merit to see the 3rd Holy Temple rebuilt, it is as if that generation destroyed the Temple again.

Does our unity have to depend on the
hatred of others? Over and over, throughout
Jewish history, we see that Jews fought and
argued with one another until anti-semitism
reared its ugly head. Only then did the Jews love
and unite with one another to help each other
survive. It makes no difference to the anti-semites
whether a Jew is religious or not, an atheist or
a rebbe. Our love and caring for one another must transcend our differences.
There is a very intense spiritual process taking place
in the world today. Can you feel it? The overwhelm,
the confusion, the anxiety and increased violence in
the world, -- yet behind it all an exciting feeling of anticipation.
Something amazingly wonderful is about to happen -- the revelation of G-dliness in every aspect of Creation! We at Holy Sparks are here to help you understand and fulfill your holy purpose at this exciting time at the threshold of redemption.
