Aha

 

You know that eureka flash of inspiration

 

Sometimes something is there, you just can’t explain it

 

So thank God I just figured out something which, well I’ll let you decide its significance

 

You see Judaism understands a different God, perhaps none understood it better than the Rebbe, for most people who think – i.e. not cultures based on just brute abuse of women and slaves – rather people who are tying to understand what the… is going on; all fall into the same trap, including philosophies and religions, even those based on Judaism.

 

The trap is the immutability of reality!

 

If you see reality as immutable, so you have range, say from intolerable to tolerable, and you always work within that range; in fact, it seems that all philosophies are simply mechanisms to make an intolerable life tolerable.

 

But, what if?

 

Yes, what if?!

 

What if all of reality can be reformed, reshaped, reenergized, in fact completely altered!!!

 

Suddenly the entire equation changes!?

 

No more is it a matter of comfort versus discomfort, its potential vs. reality.

 

Judaism is a potential reality; a struggle between utopia – for if God is infinite, utopia should be the reality – and a reality which doesn’t match the Divine potential.
