The Chai Times #67 // Nature Squared

Jan 20, 2023 9:10 pm


In this week's Torah portion Moses demands from Pharaoh to let the Jews leave Egypt.


Life is meant to be a daily exodus from Egypt. Every day, you need to transcend the natural order of things once again.


And an obvious and essential part of that exodus is to see miracles - just as we saw miracles in Egypt.


Because they are happening to you every day.  

The world may tell you there are no miracles today. There are only coincidences. Perhaps some good luck.


The world may still seem stuck in a rigid, constricted universe.


But open your mind to expect miracles, your heart to welcome them, and your eyes to see them.


Miracles unfolding within the natural order of things.


You will see how, every day, the Creator of the Universe lifts you out of Egypt and carries you to Him. Beyond nature. Way beyond.


(The Rebbe, adapted by Rabbi Tzvi Freeman,

Wishing you an uplifting Shabbat!
