The sages weren’t being poetic in their writings and they weren’t practicing wishful thinking. They were describing a deeper system of laws that operate human society through the dynamic between #Israel and the nations of the world. #IsraelUnderFire
The Maor VaShemesh puts it in a simple formula: “When there is love, friendship and unity in #Israel, no calamity can happen to them, and all curses and torments are pushed away.”

Rav Kook tells us the following: “If we can’t blow the horn for #redemption, the enemies of Israel such as Amalek, Hitler and so forth, rise up and blow in our ears for redemption.” #Bibleprophecy

Intention is connection with the end of an action.
Intention is the future in the present.
Live in it!
We and our entire lives belong to the realm where the “rational” force operates.
The upper system, the Creator, is on the “irrational” degree since it operates not from its state, but from another one. It is hence called “faith above reason”.
Why is it that by caring for me, I awaken darkness, and by caring for others I awaken the correcting light?
By caring for me, I don’t collect desires for the Kli of Adam.
For every desire revealed in me, if I find a solution in connection with others, it creates the corrected Kli
– What’s the surest spiritual progress?
– It’s when you lower yourself (but only before the friends) in all situations, especially when you’re right!
Construction starts by digging a pit and casting a foundation.
Likewise, we lay a foundation for the common corrected soul of Adam: we need to dig the earth, i.e. excavate inside our #egoism to lay the foundation for the “Last Generation”.
We are now laying the foundation for building the common soul of Adam in its final, corrected form. This work is extremely important. Hence, we must do everything in our power, and the Creator will complete it for us.
I want all of my work’s results to be only in the Creator, while I only receive energy to work, as if I’m a car being filled up with fuel. The Creator enjoys it when we prepare a vessel in which He can be revealed. And there’s no better reward for me!
On the spiritual degree, a person receives an illumination separating him from egoism. He starts seeing his will to enjoy only as a tool to perform acts of bestowal. He doesn’t make a calculation for himself – what he has or doesn’t have.
When a person works correctly, he’s always full of joy from being connected to the Creator in every state. In ascents & descents, he is governed by the Creator, and by realizing this he already gives pleasure to the Creator, and this makes him happy!
We’d be wrong to assume the problem is solved. As always, we live in a temporary #truce, feeling calm only before the next storm comes rolling in. So this time around, how about taking advantage of the temporary peace of mind to awaken ourselves and ask some serious questions?
What Does #Hamas Really Want From #Israel?
Before we who live in Israel have even acknowledged the recent threat, we already find ourselves heaving a sigh of relief, as the #ceasefire with Hamas seems to take hold.
We need to lay this all out on the table and understand how to work with it.
Interestingly, I said it all in a tweet just about a month ago—a tweet liked by @therealroseanne #RoseanneBarr #RoseanneCancelled
From a global perspective, society is only beginning to scratch the surface of our true nature, and there is nothing to be ashamed of because we were all designed the same way. #Roseanne #Starbucks #CEO #HR
Inside my ego—the natural will to enjoy, the will to bestow is conceived from the light. It’s called faith above reason. I want to act “for the Creator’s sake,” elevating the Creator against my ego, with the light I receive. I am ruled by the Creator’s greatness.
The light influences the spark, making it grow until I start to feel it moving. I did not notice it moving before, but now I feel how the light agitates the spark. This means the quality of bestowal is awakening in me, faith above reason.
