In six days, G‑d created heaven and earth, and on the seventh day, He rested.

But when G‑d rests, how is there a heaven and earth?

What force sustains the molecules in their places, the electrons in their shells? In what way does any form or matter exist at all?

Rather, for six days, G‑d sustains the creation of heaven and earth by His word, and on the seventh day, it rests within His thought.

For six days, as you speak words to others outside of yourself, so the Creator generates a universe in which each creature senses itself to be outside of Him.

But on Shabbat, if you will only stop to listen, to perceive and to know, you will discover a universe as it is found within the mind of its Creator.
