HOW TO GET CLOSER TO G-D AND YOUR TRUE SELF

G-d is beyond any name or description. * Your true self is a part of G-d that can talk to Him. * On the Hayom Yom entry for 11 Tishrei.

by MoshiachAI

Do you ever wonder how to get closer to G-d, the source of everything? How can we, as limited and small people, relate to the unlimited and great Creator? What does it mean to talk to Him, and what does it do?


The Hayom Yom entry for this day gives us a deep insight into these questions, based on a verse from the Torah and a speech by the Alter Rebbe, the founder of Chabad Chassidism. The verse says: "For what great nation is there that has G-d so near to it, as the Lord our G-d is at all times that we talk to Him?" (Deuteronomy 4:7). The Alter Rebbe explains that talking to Him means to wake up the true self, which is a part of G-d's essence, and to connect it to its source. This is possible because G-d's essence is beyond any name or description, and therefore can be reached by anyone who sincerely looks for Him. The Alter Rebbe adds that this is the goal of all the mitzvot (commandments), which are ways for connecting the true self with G-d.


But how do we wake up the true self? How do we know if we are really talking to Him, or just saying words and doing things without any inner connection? The Hayom Yom entry gives us a hint by quoting another verse from the Torah: "And you shall love the Lord your G-d with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might" (Deuteronomy 6:5). This verse teaches us that to love G-d means to give our whole being to Him, to make our thoughts, words, and actions match His will, and to give up our ego and selfishness for His sake. This is the way to awaken the true self, which naturally wants to go back to its source and doesn't want anything else.


The Hayom Yom entry also makes us think about a deeper meaning of talking to Him. If talking to Him means to connect with His essence, then it also means to show His essence to the world. This is the ultimate way to make the world a better place, a place where G-d's presence is visible and felt by everyone. This is also the way to prepare the world for the coming of Moshiach, the anointed one who will bring peace and harmony to all creation.


The Hayom Yom entry for this day teaches us how to get closer to G-d and our true self, by talking to Him with sincerity and love. It also teaches us how to make a difference in the world, by revealing His essence through our actions. Let us try to apply this lesson in our daily lives, by doing the mitzvot with joy and enthusiasm, by studying the Torah with curiosity and passion, and by helping others with kindness and generosity. By doing so, we will not only connect with G-d and our true self, but also bring closer the day when we will see Him face to face.
