Choose Life!

Choose life!—Deuteronomy 30:19

We created beings can know only that which is. That which is not, we can only imagine—or exert effort to make it happen.

But imagine a great mind from which thoughts emerge and then crystallize as the events of the physical world—spontaneously, without effort.

All events and all things, except for those matters for which this world was originally brought into being. Those are hidden thoughts—they neither emerge nor crystallize, but only unfold through our choice to do good.

When we choose life, we redeem G‑d’s subconscious, His most hidden desire.
