[82b top] R’ Rosner quoting R’ Soloveitchik: By Yehoshua, the physical ark (with the written law) entered Israel first [the Holiness radiated from out to within the Jewish people and brought even into the land itself (and this type of Holiness can be nullified)]. By Ezra, all the Holiness was internal (with the spiritual oral law) that was embodied by the Jewish people themselves and they radiated out to everything else around them [this type of Holiness is eternal].
D-E-ep Thoughts: We must remember how powerful we really are and that nothing is able to ever shake us (if we do not let it get to us). We have such a Holiness within ourselves that we must use to shine unto those who are still unaware of their own potentials. May we always use our beautiful torches to light other sparks all around the world.
