Power to rule. I read in Genesis: Mankind was delegated the power to rule over animals, fish, birds and ground. The heavens belongs to Gd. Then: What about the power to rule over our fellow man? And what about our selves? Are individuals capable to rule their own bodies? Reading the story of Cain, it seems like we at least was given control over our own evil inclination, that is, if we lift up our eyes! If this understanding is correct, then: 1) No one should "blame" Gd for the sufferings on our planet. The hole planet is OUR challenge! 2)Maybe we, as individuals, loose fights against evil thoughts and destructive desires, if we stop thanking and praising the One(lifting our eyes) who gave us all we ve got ? And maybe the only medicine to change and get our positive power back, is to learn to lift up our eyes, to remember and to be thankfull to the Creator? Truly we need a mercyfull Gd, and truly we need bold believers like them in Chabad.org to teach and give inspiration in lifes struggles! Thanks! Reply
