Perek Shira: The Fields - A Behind The Scenes View Of A Brilliant Investment Strategist
The Mabit says that every field has a specific crop that it is best suited to produce. In the days of old says the Gemara, there lived a tribe who knew what to grow on each field by tasting the soil. Today that art does not exist and it is purely "Siyata Dishmaya"; help from Heaven that places the idea of what crop to plant in each field in the mind of the farmer. If you get it right your harvest will be abundant if not you will reap lackluster results depending on how off the mark you are.
When the Torah promises that if you will keep the mitzvos your harvest will be rich, it means that Hashem will guide you how to best utilize your field to maximize results. If we do not keep the mitzvos than the guidance will lead us to a field of thorns. Nowadays we also need Hashem to guide us to the right paths in our search for sustenance. Which profession, business, employment, or deal we choose to pursue will determine our level of success. We need Hashem to guide us in the right direction.
The fields are the one who know the truth as they wait to be planted wondering if Hashem will help the owner with his decision. They sing, Hashem B'Chochma Yosad Eretz"; "Hashem in His wisdom set up the earth", in a way that only he knows how to reap its full potential.
