Once upon a time a man came to a rabbi with this question: "Rabbi, it is written that once we could see the face of God. Why can't we do that anymore? What happened to us that we can no longer reach that high to see the face of God?"

The rabbi was very old. He had seen so much in life. He closed his eyes, running his hand through his white beard and sighed heavily. "My son, that is not the way it is at all. You cannot see the face of God because there are so few who can stoop that low. How sad this is, but it is the truth. Learn to bend, to bow, to kneel and stoop and you will be able to see God face-to-face!"
