Thought for the Day


Preconception

Standing at the cusp of existence, before its very conception, when anything could have been, but nothing was; He declared, “It should be light.”

The truth of all darkness is its mandate to become light; the truth of all conscious beings is their mandate to perceive that light; the truth of all existence is to know that it emerges out of that which stands beyond existence.

“How great are Your works, O G‑d! How very deep are Your thoughts!” (Psalms 92:6)

Likutei Sichot vol. 10, pp. 7–12.

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.
