The Arizal stated the following regarding the first night of Shavuos:
“Know that one who does not sleep at all this night, but instead spends all his time learning Torah, is guaranteed that he will live out the year and no harm will befall him.”
I have said this before and will say it again. This guarantee by the Arizal should not be taken lightly. Who knows what the coming year has in store for us? Who wouldn’t love to have such a guarantee?! But remember, in order to get this guarantee, a person has to spend “all his time learning Torah,” – which probably means without taking a break and talking to friends. We are all capable of this. If you try to do this, Hashem will assist you and make it happen. Haztlocha!
