Know the Secret of Beginning

Our Sages tell us that the first word of the Torah, b’reishit, does not mean, “In the beginning,” but, “Because of the beginning” (Medrash Rabba B’reishit 1:4). Hashem created the world because of those people who know the secret of beginning.

Some people only know the secret of the end. For them the world was a waste of time. Just suffering. Just survival.

Our Sages teach us what is called a beginning: Israel is called a beginning; the Beit HaMikdash is called a beginning; Avraham is called a beginning.

The world is a beginning. Do you know why the world is called a beginning? The whole world is always beginning.
