The Sixties Radical-Azriel

Why not remain broken? When broken, you can achieve the highest heights. When you are nothing, you can receive everything.

Because you are not made only to receive. You must also face the real world and challenge its chutzpah over and over. To do that, you need supreme wholeness, as though you were Adam in the Garden before his fall.

And if you should say, “But it is impossible! It is beyond the capacity of a created being to be both something and nothing at once.”

You are right. It is impossible. That is precisely the advantage of the human being. That is why G‑d created you: To join heaven and earth, Nothingness and Being. To make the impossible a reality.
