Something strange was going on yesterday in Jerusalem.
Most of the shops in downtown decided to open – illegally – in total contravention of the Stalinesque government.
There were crowds of people all over the place, shopping (still in the masks, but that’s also going to disappear soon….)
And the police did nothing.
I know it’s not so obvious still, but something changed yesterday for the good.
I walked downtown with my husband – for the first time in months – 99% of the time without a mask.
Then, I went off to the Kotel – which was also full of people – and said a tikkun haklali.
As I got there, a small chareidi girl ran up to me to give me a laminated prayer – it was from Rabbi Berland, on the topic of being saved from negative and destructive thoughts.
Just what I needed.
On the way out, another small girl ran up to me with a different laminated prayer from the Rav, this time for chinuch yeladim.
Again, just what I needed.
I have missed the Rav, and his quiet, reassuring influence, so much over the last 9 months.
There was meant to be a hearing to decide if he would be freed to house arrest at the end of October. I haven’t heard anything yet, about what was decided. But I think maybe ‘something’ moved yesterday, because you could feel a much happier vibe in the air than there has been for months and months.
At least, in Jerusalem.
Yeah, for sure Biden stole the election.
That’s not even a question.
But personally, I’m pretty happy about that.
Now Trump’s plans for ‘peace in the Middle East’ and the ‘deal of the century’ have got derailed, and while the other side are also evil incarnate, because they have to at least pretend to be operating in a democrat fashion, it will take them a few months to put their ‘plans’ on the table.
And in the meantime, the geula will have unfolded even more.
It seems to me that all this chaos in the US – where these people, and the global interests they represent will be ripping each other to pieces for at least weeks, and maybe even months – is a total kindness from Hashem.
This way, they will be so busy with their ‘domestic agenda’, they won’t have the same energy to promote ‘deals of the century’, or to push vaccines down everyone’s throats.
Oh, and one more thing.
Trump is a total psycho.
The way psychos operate is that if you cross them, or do something like obviously steal an election from them, they will never forgive, and never forget.
Trump’s only real power, even as president, has been in his Twitter account.
I expect to see him and his acolytes finally throwing all the ‘dirt’ into the public arena, very soon, as ‘The Talkers’ (see Rabbi Nachman’s story ‘The Cripple’, and also read the post below this one) finally take each other out, and good can finally sprout forth.
My guess is that he’ll do a much better job of clearing the swamp – including the part of it that he himself inhabits – out of office, than in.
So stay tuned!
From this point on, the only way is up.
