Jewish History

Asher, the son of Jacob, was born on the 20th of Shevat of the year 2199 from creation (1562 BCE). According to some accounts, this is also the date of his passing.

Daily Thought

He creates with Consciousness.

First, He is conscious of a world, of time and space. And so, that world exists.

But that is not enough; for it exists, but it is not a thing of its own. Its only value is extrinsic—His consciousness of it from beyond.

So then He is conscious of that world from within. He judges, He makes distinctions. He says, “It should be like this and not like that. This I like, this I do not.” He plays by the rules of the game that He has made.

It is in this consciousness that a true world is born, a place that feels, “Yes, I exist.”
