Each neshamah (soul) is perfectly designed.
It is up to each of us to assume responsibility for the growth and development of the one with which we have been entrusted, with its “construction” and “implementation.”
We accomplish this through the way that we conduct our lives, using every action and every interaction – no matter how seemingly small or insignificant — as an opportunity to discover and fulfill our purpose and our potential.
The work is demanding, but it is not beyond our ability.
And if each of us takes one little step and then another, we can connect Heaven and Earth.
–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
