The Final Curtain: What is the ultimate objective of our destiny?

Once the Messianic Era begins — world peace, universal enlightenment, an end to suffering and eternal life — one would assume that having accomplished his mission the Moshiach's central role would no longer be required. Yet this is not the case, to the contrary! In clarifying this mystery, this class will present an overview of G-d's objective in creation as revealed by the Sages over the millennia and how our understanding of His purpose undergoes an evolving ever-deepening appreciation, layer beneath layer, until the final curtain on G-d's very Essence is drawn. (This class is in honor of the Rebbe's 20th Yahrtzeit anniversary)

I think rather there is one core spirit, not bound by place or time, that can enter from within into billions of souls making us know the oneness of spiritual Holiness. We all can know, privately what every body else knows, who does know. Reply

You're welcome, Moishe. But I think I meant that more as a question than a statement. We are fractals of the Divine, yes? Reply

The Final Curtain Just as it is a mitzvah to direct someone onto the path where he belongs, so too it is a crime to direct someone onto a path that does not belong to him.

Each person is born with a path particular to his or her soul, generally according to the culture into which he or she was born.

There are universal truths, the inheritance of all of us since Adam and Noah. In them we are all united. But we are not meant to all be the same.

Our differences are as valuable to our Creator as our similarities

What about Non Jews Rabbi New, how do non Jews fit into this final messianic picture? Are they also part of the one soul? Reply

The Final Curtain A very prophetic and insightful word for today. It was spoken with "Hope" and "Direction" for the future. In Unity We Embrace "Sonship" A Family On A Mission....Thank you Rabbi Moishe. Reply
