There is a story that tells it all. On the awesome day of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, of the year 5507 (1746), the Baal Shem Tov lay in deep meditation and ascended to the holy chamber of Moshiach.

“Master,” he asked, “when will you come?”

The answer: “When your wellsprings shall spread to the outside.”

The wellsprings are the wellsprings of the deepest inner wisdom.

Not only the water of the wellsprings, but the wellsprings themselves, must spread forth. When the furthest reaches of the material world become wellsprings of the innermost wisdom, then Moshiach will come.

This is our mandate now. We are all to become wellsprings.
