Maturity of the Soul

Maturity of the Soul

E-mail

The ultimate elevation of the soul is to find it has purpose. To discover that it is not here simply to be, but to accomplish, to heal, to make better. In that moment of discovery, the soul graduates from being G‑d’s little child to become His representative.

From the wisdom of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, of righteous memory; words and condensation by Rabbi Tzvi Freeman. To order Rabbi Freeman’s book, Bringing Heaven Down to Earth, click here.

Purpose for beeing
Thanks, Rabbi Tzvi Freeman, for those words, they are not empty words, they are good words. They are comforting. Directors. Reminders. May we all grow up to take a little more responsibility each day. All praise be to our maker, the creator of all.

Maturity of the Soul
Perhaps our purpose is to "to be" G-d's little child. It may be that we need to go through a life where we feel we need to accomplish, to heal and to make better, only to find ourselves coming full circle into simply "being" G-d's child.
