“The world is like a book that can be read in either direction,” wrote Rabbi Pinchas of Koritz. “There is the power of creation, making something out of nothing. And then there is the power of destruction, making nothing out of something.”
Which direction do you want to read the book of your life? We’ve seen how the Islamic terrorists in Boston tried to make nothing out of something. They are on the side of destruction. But we’re on the side of life. We want to make something out of nothing. Each time we do something positive, we create a new force for good. You could even say we become angel-makers; we can do divine things right on earth.
Tool for Tuesday: Each time we create, love, listen, hope, help, we affirm life. Each time we do our powerful stuff, like writing or painting or doing yoga or taking a mindful walk, each time we share our goodness, we are creating something out of nothing.
