With the aid of charts, graphs and slides, Hashem explains
to 32471 that life is what you make of it. "If you think Gan
Eden is bright, just see what a couple of mitzvot
under your belt will do for your tan - you'll be wearing sun glasses
it'll be so sunny! You see, a neshoma alone is nothing
compared to a body & soul team. Together, they can rack up enough
mitzvot to buy a mansion on the exclusive end of Gan
Well, that convinces the neshoma to make a merger with
an unborn baby. Now it's time to do a little pre-programming.
Hashem decides the unborn child's fate; boy or girl,
healthy or sickly, genius, dope or in-between, rich or poor and
even who it will marry.
Practically a person's whole life is pre-programmed. But there
is one important detail that Hashem leaves you to figure
out for yourself. Only you can decide whether you will become
a tzadik or a rasha. It is the job of every
person to become as great a tzadik as possible. Of course,
some people fail miserably. On the other hand, some people endure
many struggles to be G-d fearing. They are willing to even sacrifice
their lives for Hashem.
Before model 32471 is born, a Malach will teach it
the entire Torah (Rashi too!). The Malach
shows the baby travel brochures of both Gan Eden and
Gehinom. The Malach's parting words urge 32471
to become a tzadik, not a rasha. With that,
the Malach slaps the baby on the lips. Instantly, 32471
forgets all the Torah (Rashi too!) that it has
Chazal teach us that the birth of a child is a greater
Nes (miracle) than the parting of the Yam Suf (Red
Sea). But the greatest miracle of all is that in a world that
is filled with miracles, Hashem took the time to program
each and every one of us with our own special purpose and plan.
