We know that signs are all around us and that we receive spiritually guided messages all that time; the trouble is we have a hard time differentiating those from the daily din and chaotic noise that surrounds us. Occasionally though, we can detect extraneous patterns within the chaos and discern clear instances of divine providence. Below, you’ll find two recent emails I forwarded to my good friend Zion. I don’t send him this type of notes that often, only when something pops out for me. The majority of such alerts I receive do not strike me as special and get deleted; these two struck a chord and thus I shared them, albeit admittedly in skeptical terms.
In the first, dated 4/4/10 titled, “maybe volcano next” I interpreted a Google alert about someone selling their 5778 shares in Volcano Corp as a “possible” sign that a volcanic eruption was in the offing amidst all the recent spate of large earthquakes the planet has been experiencing. The price of 21.73 with 173 being the small gematria value of the 42-letter Name was another hint that caught my attention, especially since the year 5778 (2018) was once 8 years away and the tzaddkim predicted there would be 8 years of the birth pangs of the Moshiach.
In the second, dated 4/13/10, I simply noted that on erev Rosh Chodesh the London Stock Exchange reached 5778. To me, that held possible significance because of all the connections to that number/date (5778) on the eve of Jewish holidays concerning the NY stock Exchange during the worst periods of the current economic crisis precipitated by Wall Street.
What I didn’t piece together was that the next day a major volcanic eruption in Iceland was going to cause a thick dust plume over London and shut down air travel over all of Northern Europe.
Obviously, this is no coincidence, just as it’s obvious there is nothing I could have done with this information even if it had been spelled out in black and white, other than maybe shorting a few airline stocks. So since this isn’t a warning about what was to happen on April 14th, maybe it’s a warning about what can happen as we get closer to 5778, the date given by the tzaddikim for the arrival of the Moshiach (messiah) and the geula (final redemption). Maybe, all these mini-plagues doled out with much mercy (for the most part, excepting Haiti) that we’ve been experiencing since 2008 are free samples meant to get our attention without heaping harsh judgment upon us. Maybe it was just a divine way to mark the calendar for us.
When these current events are pieced together with all the other dates, data, and evidence in The Divine Calendar, etc maybe they’ll spell out a compelling enough argument for people to wake up and embrace the Tree-of-life reality. Maybe!
Regardless of why I received these alerts, was in tune to them, or even why the underlying events to trigger them happened, the basic message is that the universe is trying to send us a message and it wants to tie this volcanic eruption to 5778 without having to shape the dust plume itself in the shape of the numbers 5-7-7-8. And since G-d is G-d and the universe is the universe if it (He) wanted to do that He could, and we’d all get the not so subtle point. But He didn’t, so I guess the point is that it’s up to us to awaken on our own.
Anyhow, let’s touch base later and see about tonight.
