“How do we unite heaven and earth, soul and body? How do we integrate the sacred and the mundane, the spiritual and the material? The Kabbalah (Jewish mysticism), and specifically the branch known as Chassidus, addresses this issue with what is called the ‘cosmic order,’ which consists of a series of stepping stones uniting spirit and matter. There are many layers to reality. The material world experience as we know it is just the surface level, within which exist many dimensions of spiritual energy waiting to be released. By appreciating these inner layers, we can learn to make order out of disorder, to gain insight into the unknown forces that determine all movement and behavior. Because all the different creatures and forces of the universe were created by one G-d, disunity on the surface evokes a feeling in us of a unity within, and our souls reach for it. We have been charged with the responsibility of taking all the elements of our material world—our families, our work, our daily concerns—and channeling them toward G-d, the one true unifying element both within and outside ourselves. Leading a unified life means leading a life of harmony, a life in which we have brought G-d into our every moment.” — From Toward a Meaningful Life by Rabbi Simon Jacobson
