Rock Collection

Filed under: Blog Torah,Website Kvetching — Reb Moshe @ 5:01 pm

Today I was at the Kinneret with the children. They were playing in the water and showing me the rocks and seashells. I kept pondering their bueauty and found this one rock which was so smooth and full of texture. This led me to begin thinking about how I had a rock collection as a child. I think I might still have them somewhere in a box.

You see, if only the people of the world would collect rocks, there would be peace. If you look at a bunch of rocks, you will see that all are different and beautiful in their own way. Some are white, black, some different shades of gray and even some are colorful. The same thing with people.

The beauty of the world was created to remind us these little things. To appreciate that which we see and come in contact with. At the same time, we must wonder, “Who Created These”, and therebye return to Hashem every moment.


  1. And if people actually took to heart and implemented a daily study of mussar they would come to the same realization. 🙂
