DAILY CHABAD …


Perfectly Flawed
On INNER ENGRAVINGS

Upon every person’s soul there are words written and words engraved.

The words that are written are not of the essence of the person — they come to the soul from the outside. Therefore, they may fade and fall away, perhaps to be replaced by other words.

The words engraved are of the soul itself — just as engravings are no more than the form of the stone. When the soul finds quietude, those words are there. And when the soul is in turmoil, or soiled by experience, those engravings need only be cleaned and uncovered. But they can never be torn away.

Those words engraved upon your soul, they are also engraved in a holy fire within the depths of the Soul of All Things. They are the same words that Moses heard and inscribed on stone and on parchment. And at times, when you immerse in the words of its sages, and you allow it entry to touch your soul, you may hear those words resonating inside.
