DAILY CHABAD … Deny the Unreal


girl ballerina
There are things you fix up by doing the right thing with them. Those carry your soul high.

There are things you fix up by not doing the wrong thing with them. Those carry your soul higher than high.

There are things you fix up because you did the wrong thing with them, and then you returned with all your heart. Those carry your soul high beyond imagination.

Yet even these have some reality of their own, some means by which they could be used for good purposes.

Then there are things whose entire being is but to oppose all that is good—to strike fear, to cause despair, to be darkness. To deny reality.

And so, in your your denial of their reality, in your refusal to show them fear, to provide them any ounce of credibility, they dissipate into the nothingness they truly are.

Those carry your soul to its very core and being. And yet higher.
