The Image of God

Leo Schaya

Terrestrial man, “last born” of the creation, is the “lower point” where cosmogony stops in its creative inversions and returns toward the “supreme point.” When this “inversion of inversions” starts to work in man, it is said that he is seized by teshubah, “conversion,” “repentance,” or the “return” to God; indeed, when man “performs teshubah,” with all his heart, all his soul, and all his might, he ends by being absorbed into his pure and divine “self” and by inte­grating—within himself—the whole of existence in the cause… “Great is teshubah, for it heals the world. Great is teshubah, for it reaches the throne of glory. Great is teshubah, for it brings about redemption.”
