Rewrite

There are no things. There are only words. The Divine Words of Creation telling a story, calling all into being.

The words become scattered and we no longer understand their meaning. They appear to us static and meaningless, as things. But they are not things. They are words in exile.

If so, their redemption lies in the story we tell with them.

Joy can create one story. Inspiration yet another. Reach to the divine spark within you, and a whole new story emerges.

What story will you tell with the scattered fragments of your life?

Torat Menachem 5713, Matot-Massei 4–5.

From the wisdom of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, of righteous memory; words and condensation by Rabbi Tzvi Freeman. To order Rabbi Freeman’s book, Bringing Heaven Down to Earth, click here.
Transgressions of man towards G-d -- Yom Kippur atones for them. Transgressions of man towards man, Yom Kippur does not atone for them until one seeks forgiveness from one's fellow
