"Messages"

23 Tevet 5772

Humanity is passing through a process of revelation. During this process, "messages," for lack of a more definitive term, are bombarding this reality. Only the spiritually attuned will pick them up. Only the properly equipped receiver will accurately interpret them. That said, I want to posit something to you. The creative mind, even if it doesn't belong to a particularly spiritually-oriented person might subconsciously pick up on these messages, because creativity is a spiritual exercise. The mind is open to inspiration during periods of creativity.

The most classic example of this is found in the plot of the movie The Matrix. Many students of kabbalah find in this plot similarities between our reality and the world of the matrix. Although, the matrix is attributed to a malevolent entity in the movie, in our true reality, it is Hashem who has disguised Himself in what we know as Nature. This world is just a curtain of illusion behind which is hidden the true reality which is spiritual in nature. Our absolute belief in it is what gives it its substance and its power. When Hashem will come out of hiding, so-to-speak, this will break the illusion and change our conception of true reality forever.

I don't have a television, but I hear from others about new tv shows and sometimes I will check them out via the internet. A new program came to my attention. It's called "Once Upon a Time" and it's based on a very interesting and enlightening premise. It's about a group of storybook characters who, because of an evil queen's curse, have forgotten who they really are. The messiah-figure is Emma Swan, the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, who alone escaped the curse. But, because it happened when she was a baby, she has no memories of who she really is either. When she arrives in Storybrooke, the town where all the characters now reside, changes begin to occur and memories begin to surface and characters who belong together, but who had been separated, begin to find each other.

L'havdil, we are the reincarnation of the Dor HaDeah, the generation of the Exodus. With the arrival of Mashiach Tzidkeinu, we also will begin to change and begin to remember - who we are and how we relate to each other. In fact, that process has already begun.

Remember who you are and never forget before Whom you stand.
