Happy almost Purim

Came across this interesting article by one Rabbi David Aaron. In particular:

Therefore, when Judaism asserts that G-d is one, it does not mean "one" in the dictionary sense of "the opposite of many." The oneness of G-d is the power of love, which transcends and includes both "one" and "many." It includes opposites in a simple oneness. Although our logical minds cannot understand this paradoxical oneness, we get a taste of it on Purim, because the story of Purim aptly illustrates that even the evil person who denies G-d and rebels against His will ironically serves to reveal G-d's truth and — to the evil person's own dismay — actually end up bringing blessing to the world.

Hmm I feel like I've heard this before somewhere . . .
