“הֲלֹא כָל הָאָרֶץ לְפָנֶיךָ הִפָּרֶד נָא מֵעָלָי אִם הַשְּׂמֹאל וְאֵימִנָה וְאִם הַיָּמִין וְאַשְׂמְאִילָה.”
“Is not the whole land before you? Separate yourself from me. If you choose left, I will go right, or if you choose right, then I will go left.”
The conflicts between the herdsmen of Abram and Lot continued for a while until they reached a point that they had to part ways.
“וַיִּבְחַר לוֹ לוֹט אֵת כָּל כִּכַּר הַיַּרְדֵּן וַיִּסַּע לוֹט מִקֶּדֶם וַיִּפָּרְדוּ אִישׁ מֵעַל אָחִיו.”
“אַבְרָם יָשַׁב בְּאֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן וְלוֹט יָשַׁב בְּעָרֵי הַכִּכָּר וַיֶּאֱהַל עַד סְדֹם.”
“So Lot chose for himself all the valley of the Jordan, and Lot journeyed eastward. Thus they separated from each other.”
“Abram settled in the land of Canaan, while Lot settled among the cities of the valley and moved his tent as far as Sodom.”
Abram followed his soul and settled in the land of Canaan that was a place of peace among the righteous. Lot settled with the wicked and connected to Sodom that was full of sinners and evil people.
The fight between the good and bad side of us is constant until we make a determined decision to separate ourselves from the bad and its influence on us. Then we can live in peace and in righteousness.
Nowadays, the world around us is like Sodom full of evil.
To separate ourselves from this, we choose the study of Zohar. It will bring us peace and connect us to righteousness.
