Escape Into Darkness

25 Iyyar 5776
40 Days of the Omer

It's not  a coincidence that we are hearing the term "TRANS" so often now. The world is about to be TRANSformed in the era of Mashiach and on a soul-level people are sensing it. Souls are yearning for this TRANSformation, but unfortunately, it is being expressed in many non-kosher ways. When the soul cuts itself off from its Source and instead connects to the Other Side, the desire for TRANSformation becomes a form of escapism - an escape into darkness.

Many souls are in torment because of the degradation they are suffering in a world that has reached to the very depths of evil. Having turned their backs on God, they are wandering ever farther afield from the light and in their need to escape the pain, they descend deeper and deeper into the darkness.

There is a whole subculture of people dressing up in costumes today and pretending to be either superhuman or something other than human (Cosplay). Some go so far as to surgically alter their bodies in order to bring as much realism to their illusion as possible. This, too, is a corrupted expression of the soul's yearning to reconnect with the Truth, but only by warping it and bending it to flawed human will.

Evil's henchmen, aka The Powers That Be, are capitalizing on it by playing to this innate human desire for TRANSformation. They offer a faux light in the darkness that they have helped to create and draw these lost souls in ever deeper with promises they cannot possibly keep.


...The gigantic festival we know today that sells out in seconds and welcomes people from every corner of the world had to struggle to build their reputation and to bring their fairy-tale reality into the hearts of dance music lovers every where.

How ironic is it that Israel is participating? July 23rd is not only the holy Shabbat, but it is also the 17th of Tamuz.

The king of all electronic music festivals, Tomorrowland, is taking place for the first time in Israel this summer! “UNITE – The Mirror to Tomorrowland” is an international event taking place simultaneously in 7 countries (Germany, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico and South Africa) “mirroring” the father event, the Belgian festival which has become a cult among electronic music fans. Broadcasting live from the Belgium stage to the Israeli festival will be huge names of electronics .... Local DJs will open the event, for a psychedelic night of partying uniting thousands of people around the world. UNITE – The Mirror to Tomorrowland takes place at the Payis Arena in Jerusalem, on July 23, 2016. Ticket are on sale for 149 NIS. 
The only hope for humanity is to quickly turn around and head the other direction - and fast! 

That's what it means to do teshuvah - to stop running away from God, to turn around and run TO Him. 

However, the siren song is loud and compelling and the illusion is strong. How many will find the strength to free themselves?
