Talking to Himself

Talking to Himself


Torah is the interface between the Infinite and creation. On the outside, it speaks the language of humankind. On the inside is depth without end.

Grasp either end and you have nothing. Grasp both and you have G‑d Himself.

Torah is not about getting to the truth. When you are immersed in Torah, even while pondering the question, even while struggling to make sense of it all, you are at truth already.

Torah is about being truth.

He talks with Himself, entertained by His own thoughts. The thoughts imply a background, which is the world. But the Torah, those are the thoughts themselves.

And we? Our souls are the self with whom He speaks.

Thank you for pointing us back to personal responsibility of seeking answers in life via G-d via Chumash and Talmud. To me, it is the most beautiful reply to just about any question. We HAVE to do the work. That's THE plan. No doubt there are times our Creator says, "Why are you asking so and so? Ask ME and turn to Torah so I can reply." Reply
