Man’s task (avoda) according to Chassidus: To accustom himself to perceive individual Divine Providence (hashgacha p’ratit), how G‑d, in His goodness, renews the universe and all creatures every moment with His particular Divine Providence, which constitutes – to the exclusion of all else – the reality, life-force and sustained existence of all creatures.
~ HaYom Yom, Sivan 29
Aligned just so,
two solitary planets
are wrenched from their orbits.
into space’s thick, silent vacuum.
Pockmarked with craters,
and once-dormant volcanoes,
they now share the same orbit.
huddled under starlight,
two lonely people share a telescope,
aligned just so.
