Positive Mitzvah 21: Respecting the Sanctuary
Leviticus 19:30 "And revere My sanctuary"
Would you think of playing ball in the reception hall of the White House? Or would you shoot marbles at Buckingham Palace?
The Beit HaMikdash is HaShem's holy house and it must be treated with respect. Even today, after the destruction of the Temple, we must still treat the Temple mount with respect.
Success, in the higher scheme of things, is when a soul that has alienated herself returns. It is the ultimate demonstration of her resilience and her depth: No matter how distant she may travel, in the end she can never tear herself away.
