Imagine that blue-blood and a silver spoon are major advantages from birth. Folks without those advantages certainly aren't doomed; a person who takes full-advantage of average talent can run circles around a person that relies on high IQ, good looks, money or any other advantage he or she received from birth. In fact, Hashem and Moses had a lively discussion about this very issue. Read all about it in The Little Onion, my elaboration of this week's Torah portion Pinchas on our brand new issue of Breslev Israel web magazine.
If you care about your physical and spiritual health, then Emunalogy is a must read. The article is so important that we also made a video shiur on it which you can see here if you haven't done so already.
