לברוא עולם מתוך חפץ ולא רצון

שימו לב לאותיות צ + ר במילים בפרק הבא:
הבנתי כי כל הצרוֹת והצרוּת בעולם נובעות מהרצון.
הרצון גורם לכל דבר להיות צר.

רצון בגימטריה הוא עולם צר.

כאשר אנו רוצים בדבר מה, אנו מגדירים את הדבר בצער הכרוך ברצון. אין לנו הדבר בו אנו רוצים. לכן, אנו מצטערים. הרצון הוא צר והוא צער הגורם לנו ליצור עולם המוגדר בצרות.
עולם מאופיין ע"י יצירה מתוך רצון יהיה עולם צר מלא צער. כל דבר בו יהיה צר והאנשים בו יהיו בצרות המצטערים כל העת.
הגרוע מכל הוא: יהיה רצון מתמיד לצאת מהמצרים - בלי יציאה, כי דרך היציאה תהיה צרה מדי לצאת ממנה כי אנו רוצים לצאת. היציאה שאנו יוצרים היא צרה. הצרות מובנית בעולם הנצור ברצון. אנו רואים בעולם שלנו נסיונות לצאת מהמצרים ומהעבדות בכל דור ודור בלי הצלחה. כך יהיה עד אין סוף אם נתעקש להמשיך ליצור עולם מבוסס על רצון.

עלינו לברוא עולם של *חפץ*.

חפץ בגימטריא הוא חפשם. כל החפצים הנבראים בחפץ יהיו דברים מובחנים אך בלי צרות מובנית. הם יהיו מאופיינים בחופש. אם נתיחס אל העולם בחפץ, נברא עולם מלא חפצים וצמחים, בעלי חיים ובני אדם חפשיים. הוא יהיה עולם רחב, עולם מובחן בלי צוּרות מגבילות  ובלי צר, צרוּת וצער.

When They Tell You that You Have No Right to The Land, No Right to the Covenant, No Claims on Eternity

When they say to you: "You have no right to the Land after 2000 years! –or- "Your Covenant has ended!" –or-Your Tradition may have been relevant long ago, but it has no relevance to modern times!", what they are saying is:
"I am so blind that all I perceive is that you look European. I cannot see the Hebrew in you beneath the outer features. Had I sustained as many rapes and assimilating unions due to brainwash as your People have, there would be no trace of my Original Identity in me. I cannot conceive of surviving such a protracted Test.
I have not been found worthy and fit of eternal trust. I cannot keep, or even imagine, fealty forever. I could not keep up my end of an Eternal Covenant. I cannot be relied upon without end. After a finite amount of time, under finite pressure; I would give up what is most precious to me. I refuse to imagine anyone being found so morally sound as to remain loyal to their Promise forever. Therefore, you cannot possibly be a Party to a Covenant that is Eternal."
Don't listen to their characteristic shrieks, with their strident and shrill tone at all Israel. Don't listen at all. They are saying that, though they have been offered Eternity; they have chosen empherality. They have chosen to perish and perish they will by their own indictment. They too shall pass away and our Covenant will endure forever.
Those who have been kind and loving enough to themselves to deem themselves worthy of Eternity will see and honor it and protect it in us as we will in them.

Deep Dark Diaspora

A very deep and dark level of the Diaspora is when they've got us so disconnected from who we are that we become a simulation, or worse, a parody, of OurSelves - when the Hebrews become Jew-ish and the Irish become Eire-ish, for example.

We've reached that abysmal level of Diaspora and being cut off from OurSelves when we begin to undertake study of our culture and language as subjects with an air of anthropological objectivity and having to satisfy course requirements as per the instructors' instructions: Jewish studies, Aboriginal studies, Black studies, Celtic language studies, Women's studies are examples. When an Irishman or Irishwoman in the Diaspora enrolls in a college course to learn how to be Irish and how to speak Irish - that person is DEEP in the Diaspora.
When we behold our Culture and our Languages with the desire to connect with them and, concomitantly, observe them with detached objectivity, as though they are a smear on a slide, we are far, far down into the Diaspora.
It's OK to learn about other cultures, of course, but when one learns about one's own culture in a university; the Diaspora is deep and very dark.

Then, as they do to the Jews, adding insult to injury; they tell you that you are not who and what you claim to be. They tell you that you are some kind of imposter. They will soon do this to the Irish and to the Aboriginals and to the Tibetans. They haven't done it yet because your Diaspora is not long enough yet. You still have too much genetic memory. But as you assimilate, they will do this to you. So, stop the process now.

The Container and The Contained

The error of thinking that the container must be larger than the contained is further extended into the misunderstanding that the container must be greater than the contained.

When that basic mistake is extrapolated into space, we are left with the idea that we are insignificant in relation to giant balls of gas. We think that we are contained in space and do not realize that space is contained within us.
When that basic mistake is extended to nature, we make the mistake of thinking that nature is our mother. Nature is not our mother. Nature and everything in nature is our child. The reasons that we see all of the various elements of nature is not because we are born of them, but because they are physical expressions of our Souls that have become actualized. Yes, we are antecedent to nature.
When that basic mistake is extended to time, we think that that which is older than we imagine ourselves to be must have existed before us. We are fully capable of bringing that which is vastly older than the form we are now in into existence - and we do - continuously.
We are likewise capable of bringing that which is wiser than we imagine ourselves to be into existence. All of the Sages from whom we have learned did not precede us. We brought their Wisdom out from our depths, attributed a context to them and a time and learned from them. This is a conversation that we have with our own depths.
