Last night I learned in the Zohar that one who gives charity completes the Divine Name (the Tetragrammaton). It makes me feel so giddy with joy to think about how easy the Creator had made it for us to be co-creators. Just by giving a bit to someone in need, each person can be a literal partner in the ongoing act of creation. Look how kind He is. Look how He invited our participation and so easily. Though He made such an amazing creation and could have easily brought everything to it's perfection, He invites us to participate. He left a tiny corner rough and unfinished for us. He loves us! :)

    Moshe MZS: The Arizal reached all his levels by performing the Mitzvot with Joy:-) May Hashem bless you to be zocher to such levels eem klal yisrael:-) and ultimately the world:-)

    Choni Elchonon Kihleel To Sara L: The Zohar moves me in a very special way.

    Cheryl O: He gives us so much dignity and nobility to partner with Him.

    Choni Elchonon Kihleel To Cheryl O: Yes, this is part of His Infinite Kindness. Often humans think of that because the world has imperfections, it must be that the Creator is apathetic to the human condition. That's such an unfortunate perspective. The truth is just the opposite. The Creator made the world slightly imperfect because He loves us so much that He yearns to give us the dignity and nobility of partnering with Him.

    Maribell C: B"H!!!

    Choni Elchonon Kihleel: Yes, there's so much to thank Him for. There will come a day when we'll all see that everything, literally everything, was only His Kindness - regardless of how we experience it today.
