Infinite & Intimate

"As water, face to face, so the heart of a man to his fellow."(Proverbs 27:19)

Does G‑d then laugh? Does the Infinite Light cry over failure and rejoice in success? Does He that brings time and space into existence truly love with the passion of a frail human being or feel remorse as a creature trapped within the tunnel of time?

But G‑d desired the human soul with all its struggles. And the proof: We are here.

And when G‑d conceived this being, He looked down from His lofty realm beyond love and laughter, passion and remorse, and He said, "Shall she then be alone in his place and I in mine? Is this oneness?"

So He arranged a meeting place. He determined that the boundless emotions that are the fabric of the human soul would glimmer as well within the purity of the Infinite Light.

So that in love and laughter and compassion and awe and beauty, This human creature and G‑d could find one another, and neither would be alone.

Maamar B’Sha’ah She’alah 5725.
