BEGIN WITH THE GOAL IN MIND
Now the earth was astonishingly empty, and darkness was on the face of the deep, and the spirit of G-d was hovering over the face of the water. (Bereishis 1:2)
This is the spirit of Moshiach. (Bereishis Rabah 2:4)
As we see from the pesukim above, G-d began creating His world with His final objective in mind: a future era of universal peace, harmony, and prosperity.
Judaism believes that this vision lies not only at the core of creation but at the core of every human soul. We refer to this ultimate state as the Geulah (Redemption), which will be ushered in by Moshiach (the Messiah).
What can we do to hasten the Geulah? The first thing is to simply become aware of G-d’s desire. The more we are aware of it as the goal, the more it will positively influence our actions, which will then make the goal a reality.
