Moshe, was our leader, our spiritual guide and even our pathway to connection to God. That was Moshe, who are we in the God equation. Are we nothing without the holy people out there, are we now lacking truth? I am not denying the necessity of a leader but, we must focus on us, how can we be better. It's interesting when you equate a leader to a guide, a guide is someone who doesn't give the experience, doesn't even tell you anything other then direction. "We" must walk, we must experience, we must work. The guide will give us some course direction but, it's us who do it all. Faith in God will not come from people outside of ourselves, only we can rely and connect to Hashem. The leaders will do there part in giving us the road-map although we must take the journey.
