Art: I Have Come to My Garden
A Time For I

There are times to bend like a reed in the wind.
And there are times to act as a stubborn wall against the tide.

There are things that lie at the periphery of life. Then every “I hold like this” and “my opinion is . . .” stands in the way of harmony and peace. Every such “I” is the very root and source of evil.

But when it comes to matters that touch the purpose for which you were placed in this world, that’s when you have to be that immovable wall. That’s when you have to say, “On this, I‘m not going to budge.”

That “I,” that’s not evil. That‘s an “I” fulfilling the purpose for which you were given an “I.”

Likkutei Sichot, vol. 22, pp. 159–163; Behar–Bechukotai 5737:34.

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.
It is written, "You shall love the L-rd your G-d" (Deuteronomy 5:5). That means, G-d's name should be loved through you. That is to say, if a person reads the scripture, studies the Mishnah and attends on Torah scholars, and his dealings with the world are proper, what do people then say of him? Fortunate is his father, who taught him Torah! Fortunate is his teacher, who has taught him Torah! Behold one who has learned Torah, how beautiful are his ways, how just his deeds! ... But if one has learned Torah and served the scholars, but is in his dealings not honest and speaks with people not gently, then what do people say about him? Woe to his father, who has taught him Torah! Woe to his teacher, who has instructed him in Torah! See the one who has learned Torah -- how evil are his ways...
— Talmud, Yoma 86a
