"lifted above the stars"

I like that thought, that we - like Avraham - are lifted above the stars, that nothing can really influence us, if we do not allow it ourselves.I feel happy and thankful. Hashem lifts us up above the places we came from, the things we learned once, and all that is still around us until we die. Nothing can hurt us, nothing must really influence us, nothing then He Himself and what He wants from us. Baruch Hu!
