Secrets from Vayechi: Open the Matrix

The Torah is a matrix, the Matrix, an infinite web of gateways and passages that define the true reality, and we’re all asleep in an illusionary world of reflected light and shadows.  Yes, it sounds like the movie, but the movie wasn’t far from the Truth. Three things are called the Truth, (Emet): The Torah, the 42-Letter Name, and the Tree-of-Life, and they all are the same Truth, the same reality. And none of them are the reality we see when we look around us.

Everything on every level of the Torah is true, and there are lessons to be learned on all 70 faces of the Torah. But we strive to look deeper into the Torah in order to link ourselves up with it. It’s only when we’re linked into the Torah that we’re really touching reality.

Most of us sense that there’s more out there than meets the eye, but we quickly get drawn back into the malchut, the world of our daily existence. We want to tap into it, get messages in our dreams, explore alternate realities, but our lives get in our way. It’s designed that way. Just like the movie, if we ever woke up, we’d never be able to go back.

But the movie didn’t go far enough.

Imagine if you had the ability to see people’s souls, feel only their love, and not the hatred and envy that their bodies (shells) are emitting. Imagine if nature spoke to you, nurtured you; if you saw the path of your words and deeds even before you spoke them; if all the right choices were shown to you with every step you took.

This is the reality we want to tap into.

Not the one we’re in where everything and everyone seems blind and deaf to their options, to the plight of others, where everyone feels like a victim, and where we abuse and deprecate all the abundance lovingly made available to us. It’s not that we’re bad people, or bad at heart; it’s just that we’re asleep and can’t see reality. This is the world of illusion.

Back in the 1960’s there was a window opened and people were awakening everywhere, tasting freedom and love, but once that window swung shut and those free love children grew up to be our bankers and hedge fund managers, the planet fell hard. And we’re all paying the price. Perhaps, we peaked too early. 1968 was a very rough year for the planet, for man. It was 1 jubilee year before 2018 (5778). the year prophesied by the tzaddikim for the geula (final redemption), the arrival of Moshiach.

And out of that brief enlightenment of the 1960’s came the internet and a free flowing of information and communication. The Internet grew without a plan. It’s growth is exponential and its tentacles are reaching into every pore of society, of our lives, of our existence. What we couldn’t (wouldn’t) do consciously–connect with one another as one soul–the internet is forcing upon us with a mind all its own. For good and for worse.

Why is it so successful? Because unencumbered by the illusions of reality, the internet has no perception of limitations. It feeds off the intelligence of man, reads our minds, and exploits our weaknesses and desires. It’s the lower world reflection of the tree-of-life, except that one is built on a desire to share and the other with a desire to receive. It’s a spiritual tenet that everything in the upper world has a dark shadow below, and we’ve tapped into that negative light.

3330 years (66.6 jubilee years) earlier we had another internet given to us. The Torah is and internet more powerful than the one we think we created in the last 50 years. The Torah is our nexus to the tree-of-life. While we not yet capable of seeing into the true reality, the Torah and the Shem Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name) can do it for us. But we have to be willing to give them the chance. The words and letters, and names and numbers are the dial in codes. If we could open our minds, we’d see that a single letter can carry us a trillion miles away to see a trillion wonders, but we’re not there yet. We need to begin by understanding what the letters and words are telling us at the interface of our worlds, before they can transport us. You can’t just say “Beam Me up, Scotty;” someone has to push the button.

We’re quickly approaching the day when everyone will have to choose the blue pill or the red one. The majority of the people won’t even realize they had a choice. But if you’re reading this, you probably are in the other category. With every year that passes, the illusion grows stronger, the distractions greater, the freedom of time more illusory. If you’re going to swallow the red pill and chose to seek the tree-of-life do it now. Before long, the chaos of our ever more ordered life and world will become overwhelming. Make the time to study deep into the Torah, and to recite with conviction the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name) while you trying to achieve some positive action. Let yourself be open to the alternative reality of loving-kindness that’s out there, just waiting for you to dial in.

Like the Internet, and like our souls, everything in the Torah is interconnected. When we see and make those connections in our minds, we’re attuning ourselves to the right frequencies that will allow even more connections to happen for us. Eventually, if our actions follow our high thoughts, and we also live our lives accordingly, we’ll be properly tuned to receive the tree-of-life reality, the Truth.

There are secrets in every word and letter of the Torah, and especially so in the beginning of a weekly portion. This past week’s, Vayechi, was the last of the Book of Genesis, and yet even the last portion connects to the first. As Jacob, who personifies the tree-of-life, prepares to leave the world, the Torah makes sure we’re anchored to it from beginning to end.

The first verse in parsha Vayechi is Genesis 47:28 “And Jacob lived in Egypt 17 years…” which in Hebrew is the 7 word phrase:

Vayechi Yacov b’ertz mizra’im sheva ehsereh shanah…”

As mentioned in a previous blog, “Vayechi Yacov” has the gematria value of 216, an allusion to the sefira of gevura and to the 216 letters of the 72 Names (Triplets) used to split the Sea of Reeds.

But the initials of b‘ertz mizra’im sheva” hint at the Shem Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name of G-d) also used to split the Sea of Reeds. Moreover the three contiguous letters in mizra’im sheva (MZRIM SHBA) also hint at the Shem Mem-Bet (Ana B’koach).

And the numerical value of “ehsereh shanah…” meaning “10 years” or a decade, is 930, but herein lies a secret. The kabbalists reveal that Shanah of numerical value 355 is the same as sefira (dimension) so “10 years” is also referring to 10 sefirot (dimensions).

But this is only the starting point of our journey in the Torah wisdom encrypted here because 930 corresponds to the 930 years of Adam’s life. Now, we know Adam was to have lived for 1000 years, but gave 70 so that King David would live for 70, and right after the Mem-Bet Shemot sequence in mizra’im sheva (MZRIM SHBA), and located right before the value 930 for the 10 sefirot in “ehsereh shanah…” we have the letter Ayin (A) of value 70. “mizra’im shevA ehsereh shanah…”.

It fact it’s smack in the middle of these 4 words, just as David’s life was smack in the middle of the 5778 years from Adam to Moshiach. The mid-point of David’s 70 years of life was 2889 HC.

And this central letter Ayin (70) completes the full tree-of-life, which was hinted at by the “10 sefirot” in two ways. First we know from the Zohar and chazal that there are 70 branches on the Tree-of-life, corresponding to the 70 nations of the exile and the 70 family members of Jacob that entered Egypt (b‘ertz mizra’im) to begin the Egyptian exile. And second because 70 + 930 = 1000, or 10 cubed, which represents the full expansion (blossoming) of 10 sefirot in the 3 columns of the tree-of-life. 1000 is also elef (ELP), which is also alef (ELP) and the letter Alef has a composite letter value of 32, as in the 32 paths of the Tree-0f-Life.

Yet another link between Jacob and Adam is found through this letter Ayin, which when spelled out (AYN) is 130, as in the 130 years that we know from chazal that Adam shunned Eve, causing much spiritual damage by the spilling of his seed; and that we further know from chazal, that through Jacob’s 130 few and cruel years, he rectified these sins for Adam, and as his descendants, for us.

This 130 years was further hinted at in the full verse of 17 words, which goes on to say that Jacob lived 147 years, so 147 – 17 (the numerical value of tov , good) = 130. In other words, Jacob corrected, made good, the 130 years of Adam.

That said, if we go back and examine the initials of the first 5 words of the verse, we find that they add up to 358, the numerical value of Mashiach.

Vayechi Yacov b‘ertz mizra’im sheva ehsereh shanah…”

So we have Yud-Vav, the two masculine (or open channel) components of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and Bet-Mem-Shin representing the 42-Letter Name, adding up to Mashiach, and then they are followed by Ayin-Shin, representing the 370 Lights of Arich Anpin, from which as the Arizal explains we draw down the Light during the shofar blowings.

Furthermore, the 5 initial letters of “Vayechi Yacov b‘ertz mizra’im sheva …” are VYBMSh, which if we add the letter hey (H) as the kolel for the 5 letters permute to BYH ShMV, which are the 6 special letters that appear at the top of 6 of the 248 Torah columns, meaning “In YH His Name,” another reference to Mashiach, the Messiah.  And indeed, the  (yud)Y of the 6 letters is found in this very portion, in the Name Yehuda, from whom Mashiach Ben David descends.  And incidentally, if you want to follow the infinite matrix links, the Name Yehuda is found 42 times in the Torah.

Together the 7 initial letters of the first 7 words of verse 47:28 add up to 358 + 370 = 728, as subtle reference to the Torah’s very first verse, which has 7 words and 28 letters, and which is integrally related to the 42-Letter Name (as explained in depth in The Genesis Prayer).

The lessons to learn from these Torah references to Adam and to Creation in the Torah’s first verse, and to the 42-Letter Name that existed before Creation and to Moshiach, is that in order to connect with Moshiach in the end of days, we cannot forget our roots, and we have to keep attuning ourselves to the divinity, the wonder and awe that is the complexity of the Torah, to the real Internet, and thus to the Tree-of-Life reality.

Vayechi Yacov means Jacob lived. What we’ve revealed tells us that it means Jacob lived in the Tree-of-Life reality.  By tapping into the secrets and connections of this verse and this Torah portion, we can touch the Tree-of-life as well.  Jacob did it for us.  If we add those 1000 years of Adam to 47:28 we get 5728, 50 years before 5778, 1 jubilee year, 1968 CE.  It’s time to give freedom and love a chance again.


The Separation of the Spiritual from the Physical has begun.

What is going on right now? Can things get worse?

The spiritual tenet of kabbalah that has been lost on everyone is that when looking to solve a physical problem the only solution is a spiritual one. You can’t solve physical (material) problems with physical answers–throwing money at a situation only throws money away, but I guess we’re all learning that lesson the hard way. And there’s a reason that we’re all learning it now.

The Torah (Bible) set up a system for us, gave us a time frame, and the tools with which to navigate through that system and time span. Only we’ve chosen not to follow that system and to ignore the tools and laugh at the time frame. It’s time we pay attention. It’s no coincidence that people are being separated from their physical belongings and at astounding, imperceivable, rate. How many times have you heard dumbfounded people say “Who could have foreseen this?” in the past year?

The Chronicles of Esau in Genesis 36:1-43 contain a lot of names; why is this important to us? Many of the righteous mentioned so far in the Torah have had their own Chronicles (books) listed, but why should Esau have one? Wasn’t he the hated, bad seed brother?

Since we can know nothing by looking at its cover, let’s remove the wrapping and take a peek inside. And there is a the curious phrase, repeated several times, staring at Genesis 36:1 “Esau, that is Edom,” “AShV HVE EDVM.”

While Vav (V) is the most numerous letter in the Torah, there’s preponderance of them in this chapter 36. Perhaps since vav(V) has the numerical value of 6, and 36 is 6 x6 and the sum of all the integers from 1 – 36 = 666 there is some logical connection to Genesis 36 that we can find.

Nevertheless, the curious phrase, repeated several times, that “Esau, that is Edom,” “AShV HVE EDVM” seems to want to tell us something and each of the 3 words does contains a vav (V), making VVV or “666 leaving us with (AShHE and EDM) or the numerical value of Shalom, peace (376) and Adam, whose total gematria is 421 + 3 (kolel for the 3 words) = 424, that of Mashiach Ben David.

What’s the connection?

We know that 666 is tied into the coming of the Messiah and the dates 5778 HC (2018 CE) from the kabbalists in a good way. And we know that because of Revelations, the Christians (Edomites) have tied it in in a bad way, but if you email us we’ll let you know what Kabbalah reveals about that ominous number of the beast prophecy.

Nevertheless, let’s understand the Torah context in which we find the name, Esau. The first time the contiguous root letters of Esau (YShV) appeared in the Bible (Torah) is right after G-d finished creating the world and it is the very last word (La’asoT) “LAShVT” in the very first reading of the Torah in Genesis (Bereshit) 2:3, “And G-d blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it He rested from all the work of creating that which He had made.”

We know from chazal and what is also obvious from the Torah that everything happens in cycles of seven (7), it being the last, or malchut day. And on the seventh (7th) day we refrain from the physical and indulge in the spiritual. So Esau being within the very last word of the 7th day, the very end of the cycle might be hinting at that very end of days, when the spiritual will be separated from the physical. Also we should note, that when we separate Esau from (La’asoT) “LAShVT” we are left with LT of numerical value 430, that of the Hebrew word for soul, nefesh.

Another hint comes at the opposite end of the Torah where we find the final mention of Esau’s name. We know from chazal that the date of the Messiah prophecy for the geula, final redemption is 2018 CE and the last time the Name/word Esau is used in the Torah is in Deuteronomy (Devarim) 20:18, paragraph 72 “This is so that they will not teach you all the revolting practices with which they worship their gods, causing you to sin to G-d your Lord.”

But back to Genesis 36:8 “Esau, that is Edom,” “AShV HVE EDVM”

Edom (EDVM) is also Adam (EDM) spelled with an extra vav (V). And thus “AShHE EDM” could be “AshH EDM (to make Adam). But what does that mean?

The Arizal explains that the 8 Edomite Kings represent the physical aspect of the sefirot. To understand this we must first understand that in the Kabbalistic scenario of the vessel and the light, the vessel is also made of light and thus the same thing can have have two seemingly opposite aspects, and indeed needs to have it for existence in our world. In a sense, our world cannot hold true purity which is why the light we receive gets filtered down through all the sefirot (dimensions) and which is why the Torah is so deeply encoded behind so many layers (or veils) of truth.

Esau, that is Edom, represents the Physicality, the vessel aspect of the light, which is why Esau and Edom, etc had to be spelled with the the letter vav (V). Because, as it is known, the vav (V) plays the role of channel, and a vessel cannot channel light, only receive it.

In Genesis 36:31 it says, “These were the Kings that reigned in Edom before any Israelite King reigned.” which is saying that the Edomites must precede the Israelities in the land of Malchut (kingdom), as physicality must make a vessel to hold the spirit.

Edom is the physical Adam. Adam is the spirit (ruach) and if you recall from previous posts that Adam (EDM) is the spirit of Adam-David-Mashiach. Adam also held (was a composite of) the 600,000 souls that journeyed 2018 years from Creation to the Covenant of Abraham that lived through 430 of exile until receiving the Torah together in 2448 HC.

After reading a long list of Esau’s descendants broken down by Kings and chiefs, the last verse we read this week before the Haftatah portion is Genesis 36:43, “These were the chiefs of Edom, according to their settlements in the land they occupied. This was Esau, the father of the Edomites.” The Torah uses the phrase “in the land they occupied” to emphasize that it was temporary housing, like the body for the soul.

And the Torah uses the odd wording “This was Esau, the father of the Edomites” to show us all (the descendants, including the 8 Kings) were part of one whole. This is important because a whole can be lifted at once, where as separate parts must be addressed one at a time, a much more time consuming and laborious process.

The exact words are “Esau, father of Edom (AShV EBY EDVM)” which has the sofit numerical value of 1000, which represents the highest sefira/dimension of Keter (crown) and also the Hebrew word elef, meaning one thousand, which we know is also the letter Alef (E) spelled the exact same way. That alone is telling, but the final letters (VYM), which we know from chazal point toward the future, have the numerical value 616, as in “h’Torah, “the Torah.”

Curiously, since both Shalom and Esau have the same regular numerical value if we substitute Shalom for Esau, and use the sofit value for Shalom, the phrase becomes “Shalom father of Edom”, or “Peace, father of Edom,” and it still adds up to 1000.

Now, since we know the phrase is connected to keter, the highest level, it makes sense that the first two letters of the phrase (AShV) add up to 370, as in the 370 lights of Arich Anpin that emanate from keter. And since the last 8 letters (AShV EBY EDVM) add up to 70, we can begin to understand that the 70 nations described by the Zohar come from the 8 Kings, and the key that linked them to the light of the upper worlds was the vav (V) in Esau (AShV).

And adding to this separation of the physical from the spiritual we know that there are exactly 600,000 – 408 composite letters in each sefer Torah, not 600,000, yet we also know that these correspond to the 600,000 Jewish souls at Mt Sinai, and the different is 408 letters. Now, while 408 x 6 (vav) equals 2448, the year the Torah was received by the 600,000 at Sinai, 408 is also 51 x 8 or the value of Edom x the 8 Kings. Without the physical component, there would be nothing to house the much larger spiritual one, which also shows us that it only takes a small physical action to activate a lot of spiritual benefit.

If Esau was so hated, why does his name have the same value as that of peace (shalom)?

Because Jacob (Israel) used the tools of the Torah and spirituality to make peace with him. When Jacob overcame his fears and reached into his soul to bring Esau unconditional love, Esau changed from killer to brother and instead of biting Jacob’s neck, he hugged him. Jacob worked very hard for 21 years to gain his physical wealth and he sent Esau a large portion of it as a gift, but it wasn’t until he overcame his fears (ego) and used his spiritual insights that he won him over. After all, what did Esau want with Jacob’s physical gifts; he could have slaughtered him and taken them all. There is a reason this lesson is coming alive today.

Knowing the Israel and Esau were reunited in peace 3500 years ago, lets see what happens If we add Israel (541) and Esau (376) and take away the vav (V) of Esau that wasn’t needed once he was united with Israel (the central column channel); we get 911, the numerical value of “the Beginning.” The beginning of what?

Of the separation?

When the Torah lists the generations Of Adam, Noach, etc it rarely says someone died, but in contrast in listing the generations of Esau, all the Kings died, except the last one, Hadar (HDR), whose name signifies splendor, majesty. According to the Arizal, the 8 kings represented the sefirot in the time of Bohu V’Tohu and were shattered, giving way the purer more flowing structure of the universe we know as the world of tikune (correction). Moreover, the 8th King he said corresponded to the sefira of Yesod, which was left open for the other vessels/sefirot to flow through to form our universe once they were filtered.

We know that it’s part of our correction to recoup those holy sparks that fell from the worlds of the 8 kings and that were scattered among the 70 nations, and when enough of them have been gathered, Moshiach (the Messiah) will come to elevate the whole plane-of-existence, which is why we’ve been in exile.

We also know that Israel has been in exile amongst the 70 Nations (which spiritually are the branches of the tree-of-life) for much of the 3330 years (66.6 jubilee years) since the giving of the Torah and certainly since the Second Temple was destroyed in 70 CE (3830 HC). ut even before the Second Temple was destroyed Israel lived under Rome, also known as Edom, so as indicated by the first letters of Esau, father of the Edomites, (AShV EBY EDVM) which stand for A (70) and the two alefs (E,E) for two elef, or 2000, we have 2000 years among the 70 nations.

While the value of “father of the Edomites (EBY EDVM)” is 64, that of Din, judgment, and also 8 squared, the normal value for the full phrase “Esau, father of the Edomites, (AShV EBY EDVM)” is 440 + 1(kolel) = 441, the numerical value of emet (truth), or 21 squared. So the phrase can be looked at as “peace and Judgment = truth.”

And since truth is 21, or in actuality the Name of G-d Eyheh of value 21, squared, the 21 verses of the Haftarah portion associated with this reading of portion Yayishlach is directly related to the phrases and verses above from that portion. And in Obabiah 1:1-21we find the ultimate destruction of the physical world (the mountains of Edom) and the triumph of the spiritual (tree-of-life) reality.

Moreover, in the 21st and final verse of the portion, in Obadiah 1:21, we read, “Deliverers will go up on Mount Zion to govern the Mountains of Esau. And the kingdom will be the Lord’s.”

So this is “truth,” and we can see the final outcome, but what about the separation, the process?

It’s no coincidence that the final redemption is prophesied to occur in 5778 HC, or 2018 CE, 3760 years after G-d advised Abraham about the final redemption and made a Covenant (brit) with him called the Covenant of Abraham, and/or the Covenant of Halves.

And while Esau was the father of the Edomites who became the Christians, it’s no coincidence that the birth of actual Christianity occurred in 3760 HC (0 CE) and/or that 3760 is 10 x 376, the value of Esau and also of Peace, the Peace that came from the spiritual union of Israel and Esau.

If this union was made in Peace, why hasn’t there been peace?

Because it was a spiritual bond and once Israel (Jacob) became tied to to Esau (the physical plane) the physical aspects began obscuring and eventually overwhelming the spiritual process. And the more that happened the greater the length of time between cause and effect, and without that causal feedback, the benefits of peace over personal gain became too difficult to fathom. But in the last and final 70 years, since Israel became a nation in 1948 CE (corresponding to Abraham’s birth in 1948 HC) and the divine process of separation had begun, things have reversed themselves and the time between cause and effect has necessarily sped up.

Are we talking about separating the people? No, that’s a physical separation. We’re talking about the separation of the spiritual out of the physical. We’re taking about separating (elevating) our spiritual nature from our selfish materialistic physical nature and desires. And we’re talking on an individual bases, within ourselves.

Even though most of the world discovered religion in the final 2018 year period, in a very real sense this was the physical/material period and the first 3760 years was the spiritual one.

If you want to look for Bible code signs, I suppose you could say that 9/11 heralded the beginning of the end, of the final 18 year period when one way or another the holy sparks would have to be separated out and elevated, and to say the period hence has been an unsettled one would be an understatement.

What has begun is the forcefully separation of people from their material belongings, and the process has been speeding up as we get closer to 2018.

Was the location of the 9/11 attack a coincidence?

In order to break through the illusions of physical reality to the tree-of-life reality, what is being separated is the material (physical) from the spiritual; people from their belongings. And where were those belongings concentrated? In 2001, 42% of all the profit in America was made in financial services through Wall Street.

So was 9/11 a divine act?

Everything is a divine act, but not usually a spiritual one. Hurting someone you don’t like is not spiritual; it’s the worst kind of physical act. Helping someone, like Jacob did with Esau is the spiritual blueprint.

So what’s going on?

After 9/11, the US economy alone lost a trillion dollars. Then another trillion went down the black holes of Iraq and Afghanistan. Another trillion was siphoned off to import hyper-priced oil from the mid-east and other oil rich nations that tell us daily how much they hate us.

Next, after a few localized real estate bubbles started bursting the country took notice that people were being separated from their homes in foreclosures, and instead of applying compassion and solving the cause of the problem, the government and the financial institutions and the myriad academics that advise them, all decided to throw money at the symptoms–to give money to the very institutions that were kicking them out of their homes. How do you think that was going to play out spiritually? For the past 2000 years it probably would have been a good bet–give money to the rich and powerful and they’d see to it you’d stay in power, while the poor and meek wouldn’t be heard from again, and if they were heard from so much time would have passed that cause and effect would have been completely divorced in people’s minds. Not anymore; cause is becoming effect.

What actually happened next was a downward spiral, where tens, then hundreds, and now over a trillion dollars of the government’s (the people’s) money was thrown away and lost in trying to prop up misguided corporations that were still trying to profit from people’s misfortune. Meanwhile, even more people lost their homes, and then still more. At the same time that everyone was trying to solve physical problems with ill-advised physical solutions, the marketplace (Wall Street, where 9/11 first hit) lost about $7 trillion in value, gone in months, weeks, days, thus washing away years and decades of savings and investments by people who had planned on living off those physical assets. Then came the bankruptcies and the layoffs, and thus even more separation of people form their belongings. The spiral became faster as the newly unemployed couldn’t pay their mortgages. And the big talk in the papers was whether the Wall Street bonuses to all those people who cost everyone trillions would decline by half or only by a third?

So in the midst of this financial turmoil, the criminals and fraudsters couldn’t maintain their rouses and the headlines shifted to people who had had their life savings stolen, wiped out overnight.

And we voted in a new government, that somehow seems to be shaping itself with most of the same players as the previous governments that made all these wrong decisions. And what’s their plan: throw more money at it? A few hundred million more here, and a trillion in infrastructure construction there–rebuild the physical. Have you ever seen government contractors repair roadways and potholes; what should take days or weeks always takes years and never ever gets completed. Even if all those white collar office workers and blue collar assembly line employees who lost their jobs and dolare in danger of losing their homes would possibly find work amongst the illegal aliens on the construction sites, that trillion dollars will be lost in potholes before the first one ever gets filled.

And where are all those trillions coming from? Printing presses. That’s called devaluation. The government is wastefully devaluing all our hard currency, thus punishing everyone, even those that didn’t invest in the stock market or real estate market. The physical/material continues to evaporate.

And it’s only the beginning.

And this just describes what’s happening in the US. The problem is global and being played out similarly all over the world. As our charities dry up and our funding of relief efforts around the world stop cold, millions will suffer even more than us. And as our penchant for importing rather then manufacturing stops at our empty wallets every nation and village of the world will feel the impact, many with economies far more fragile than ours. And it’s a global spiraling effect, as they import less from us, we hurt more and contract even further. Meanwhile, people must eat, and anger spreads. Health care languishes because people are forced to make choices and food comes first; next comes the health crises, the viruses, pandemic diseases, and unchecked plagues. G-d forbid!

Was there no warning?

Sure there was. Katrina. That was huge missed opportunity for our government and institutions to show compassion.

So is the end in sight?

Sure it is. The year 2018 CE. But as for a solution to our physical problems; it’s always been there. Unconditional love. The plight millions of us are suffering now can only be felt on an individual basis and can only be solved that way too. We don’t feel compassion at hearing about a million starving people in Africa; we feel it (an entire nation feels it) for a stranded whale on a beach. Why? Because we don’t have the capacity to comprehend more than a small dose of suffering. That doesn’t make us spiritual; it makes us human. So we must do what we’re capable of. Instead of thinking about how to save 10 million foreclosures, we need to feel the suffering of the individual and his family that are losing their single home. We must put a stop to that. We must use our physical world to feel the pain of our neighbors and to physically help them with our own money and our own hands, one by one, each of us. We must share what we have, while we still have it.

It’s simplistic, as the spiritual always is, but if the government was as concerned for the individual homeowner as it was for the share price of Goldman Sachs none of this would have happened. If they would have created a superfund like they did years ago to clean up the toxic dumps, and put their money in conjunction with the money of the financial institutions that had the most to lose towards helping the 5% of the homeowners that needed immediate help and easing the situation for another 5%, we’d all be physically fine right now. And yes they’d have to put in some regulation and controls to avoid making more bad sub-prime loans in the future, but if they did that with the heart to protect people rather than their assets under management it would all work out fine. The outcome of our actions are directly linked now to the consciousness behind them.

But they didn’t and those options are a lot more difficult right now since so much has been lost already and so many more people are in trouble. So we go back to what we can do as individuals: We must share what we have, while we still have it. If not, the end truly is in sight and we will be the ones who need the help. The Bible (Torah) gave us a very simple system. It all boiled down to one line:

Vayikra (Leviticus) 19:18 “You must love your neighbor as (you love) yourself. I am God.”

Could it be any plainer, any simpler, any clearer? This is how we separate the spiritual from the physical. That message was reinforced by more than a billion people since the year 3760 HC (0 CE) yet in crisis after crisis, opportunity after opportunity, it was lost. Yes, the world became very religious in the past 2000 years, but where was the love? Where was the spiritual? What were the “revolting practices with which they worship their gods,” from Deuteronomy (Devarim) 20:18. It was idol worship, the worship of money, of the material. The Titans of Wall Street became the gods, and the rock stars, sports heroes, movie stars, anyone with huge conspicuous wealth. We worshiped them. We worshiped the McMansions, the home theater systems, the exotic vacations, the giant SUVs, and the designer clothes.

We forgot our human dignity, our soul, the aspect of G-d and the souls within our suffering brethren. It’s not too late. It may be more difficult to find the physical means to help someone now, but those that need it are that much closer to us. We must all take our hands out of our pockets and reach out to one another.

B”H May G-d help us to help each other that we may all elevate above our physical trappings and receive Mashiach (Messiah) consciousness together.
