God and Masks

Sometimes we get so caught up in our own problems that we forget to empathize and feel compassion for others. And when we do, we almost never consider feeling any compassion for God. Why would we pity God? God has everything! But in the current global situation something has happened that makes it easier to feel for God.

Today, for safety reasons we wear masks on our faces when we interact with others. A lot of people have strong opinions about the effectiveness of the mask, but one thing is certain: nobody enjoys wearing it. Wearing the mask isn’t fun. It’s annoying. But we must.

Through this we get a feel for what it’s like to be God. In order to create the world, God had to put on a mask to hide himself from us. He must. Otherwise, if we saw God, we would be overwhelmed and lose our individualism and our free will. So he concealed himself so that we could be ourselves.

God has been wearing his mask for almost 6000 years now, and will continue to wear it until the coming of Moshiach, when the world will be holy enough to see and know God without losing its self. With every mitzvah and good deed we do, Moshiach gets closer, and God gets closer to taking off his mask. So let’s do an extra Mitzvah to make that happen a little sooner, because as we all now know, wearing a mask is no fun.
