Bereshit 5776

“Let us make man in our image.” Who was God talking to? If it was to the angels or to the world itself, we must value ourselves highly: we are angelic, we are the world. But maybe He was talking to us, now, today. Why not? The implications of that are even stronger – we are both creators and the created. This resonates as true: we consciously create ourselves, choosing what to learn, what environment to live in, which friends to surround ourselves with. Yet being created isn’t only a passive act. We have to be open to it, declaring ana zamin lemehaveh, I am ready to be created. Creation began in the first chapter of Bereshit, and has never ended.
