The World Is Ours To Make

One of my favorite teachers, Zion Nefesh said this in his daily www.DailyZohar.com email today:

Genesis 2:3
“וַיְבָרֶךְ אֱלֹהִים אֶת-יוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי, וַיְקַדֵּשׁ אֹתוֹ: כִּי בוֹ שָׁבַת מִכָּל-מְלַאכְתּוֹ, אֲשֶׁר-בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים לַעֲשׂוֹת”
“And on the seventh day God finished His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which GOD (ELHYM אֱלֹהִים) Created to make.”

The last three words of the three verses that sum up the story of Creation tell us that the world was made for us ‘to make’. This is our temporary world that we come into for a short time for the process of tikkun.

This is a big responsibility for me. My tikkun, my opportunity to repair the world in my own way is a lifetime endeavor.  First I have to find myself, and only then can I find my true tikkun. I make my own world by finding my true self and my true tikkun. That is how I begin to repair the world, to make or create the world here and now.

On the Sabbath I rest from my making and creating as the Creator of the Universe rested from His work. Sometimes it's hard to remember to stop making and creating for a whole day, isn't it?
