Kedushas Shabbos Part 105 - Dig it! Who Mirrors Creation (Video)

Rabbi Haber reveals the mechanism for changing nature through digging beyond the stars.  Yitzchak Avinu and Avraham Avinu, before him, were shown by Hashem the secret of changing nature through going very deeply into the world outside and beyond nature and accessing the roots of Creation in order to grow their own produce (the partnering with Hashem in Creation).  They were able to induce changes in nature through uprooting their environment with special prayers mirroring the Will of Hashem that they succeed in going above nature in order to fix the world which is suffering in a lower state of existence from the sin of Adam HaRishon. We, as their progeny, are also capable of changing nature for the same purpose. We do so whenever we take anything in Creation and elevating it through brachot and tefillot and by recognizing the G-Dliness within it.
