Moshiach: An Anthology

Moshiach: An Anthology

 Email

After all is said and done, there are basically two things that can be said about this world we live in and this life we inhabit. Either it’s a hotchpotch of objects and events going nowhere in particular. Or else there’s a plan—a method buried somewhere in all the madness, a goal towards which all this is headed.

Four thousand years ago, Judaism embraced the latter option and proceeded to convince the rest of the world of this truth. That the world has a Creator. That the Creator has a plan, and that everything that occurs—good and evil, momentous and trivial—is a step in the march towards its fulfillment. That life has purpose. That all this is leading somewhere—somewhere good.

The rest is commentary.

the rest is commentary I feel this most beautiful statement that prefaces these articles I have not yet, read.

I believe this with all my heart and soul.
I am gifted to perceive this in my life, every step I take.
I write about this since it's my feeling that what is overflowing, needs to be shared.
I feel that the time is, NOW, and that we're all moving towards that ineffable goal, and that the world was created for this moment in history/her story. I truly feel it.

I have in my own life visible evidence that this is true. I strive to communicate this but I am not in charge of the opening of consciousness. G_d is in charge, and so this is also a story of surrender, to a Divine storyteller.

And so I enjoy and enjoin with others on this site, because I feel something is within sight, and that to grasp the enormity of this is to go the distance.

what is beautiful is a deep and enduring truth about us all. Enduring Creation. IN every sense of the word endure, this is what is happening here.

must mention I just have to let those on the editorial board of chabad.org -and particularly Yanki Tauber- know:
You will never be able to imagine how far reaching your efforts are. May G-d bless you from the source of all good that you all meet only blessings in your lives.
