The goal is for the world to discover itself. To discover that its beauty is endless and its wisdom unfathomable, because it is the ultimate expression of the mystery of the divine.

Which is why the mitzvahs of the Torah are absolutely crucial to this venture.

When you wrap tefillin on your head and arm, you are unveiling that mystery within yourself.

When you make your consumption of food sacred by keeping kosher, you are unveiling that mystery in the world that feeds you.

So it is with every mitzvah—all connect you and your world to a higher, divine purpose. To its true meaning.

So that when you do those mitzvahs, and then you go out and repair the wrongs of social injustice, replenish the Amazon forest, rebuild the villages of Nepal—there too you will see not just a world, but a creation. A creation of divine mystery.

You will see it with the light of the Torah and mitzvahs that carried you there.
