Daily Thought

True peace is not a forced truce, not a homogenization of differences, not a common ground that abandons our home territories.

True peace is the oneness that sprouts from diversity, the beauty that emerges from a panorama of colors, strokes and textures, from the harmony of many instruments each playing a unique part, not one overlapping the other’s domain by even the breadth of a hair.

Those who attempt to blur those borders, whatever be their motives—they are unwittingly destroying the world.

Beginning with the crucial border between man and woman. For this is the beginning of all diversity, the place where G‑d’s oneness shines most intensely from within His precious world.

Likkutei Sichot, vol. 18, Korach 3.
