Yesterday, one of my friends sent me a message about a new booklet on Ahavat Yisrael, put out by Rav Arush.
I didn’t real feel so much like tracking it down to read it, but it appears God had other plans.
This morning, that booklet showed up in my house, so I grabbed it and took it off to the kever of the Saba Yisrael, where I was heading off to do some hitbodedut on the cause of my current bad mood.
I get to the Saba, I find a step to sit down on, and I open the booklet ‘randomly’.
This is what I got to (pages 8-9 – my own free translation of Rav Arush’s words):
…But emuna that ‘hakol letova’ – everything is for the best, this is mamash not enough!
It’s not enough to believe that Hashem is righteous and yeshar (straight); rather, we are obligated to progress to the third level of emuna:
To seek out what Hashem wants from us, what is the message that He is sending us?
Because in everything that happens to a person, and to the world, there are ‘hints’ from Heaven, and a call from Hashem for us to come closer to Him, and to return in teshuva.
And whatever happens to us, it’s not a small hint, rather, it’s a loud call from Heaven, to all of us, to save ourselves….
….Whoever says ‘hakol letova’, ‘the holy ones will sweeten all the dinim (judgments) from off of us, and cancel out all the decrees’ – or all sorts of other sentences of ’emuna’ like this, and he is satisfied with this, and he continues on his way with his life, without waking up, and without making teshuva, and without any cheshbon nefesh (self-searching) –
So first of all, this person doesn’t have any connection at all to emuna!
He doesn’t really believe that ‘hakol letova’, because the biggest good is when a person wakes up.
And a person who doesn’t wake up, he’s not just someone who ‘doesn’t believe’, rather, he’s a person who is blocked and cruel, and who wraps up all his own opacity in empty words.
Whoever doesn’t search for the message, and who doesn’t want to change, with all his strength – he isn’t just ‘insensitive’, and he’s not just ‘old’ – but we’re really talking about a person who is dead.
Because even an old person feels something, when they kick him. There are things that even the most insensitive person still feels.
Only a dead person doesn’t feel anything.
Whoever isn’t shaken to the very depth of his soul [when bad things happen], he’s in a situation of being deeply ‘frozen’.
So, I read this, and suddenly I understood why I’ve been feeling so down the last couple of days.
It’s because I’ve been trying to communicate with people who are basically dead, from the soul up.
All those people who can’t get why I’m so upset with what’s happening with 5G and poisonous Covid shots… And who think I should calm down, as hundreds of thousands of people worldwide get killed and injured – pointlessly – because they believe all the lies they’re being told by the media and the drs and the government… And who don’t think it’s a ‘big deal’ that graphene oxide smart dust is literally in everything we eat and drink, not to mention medications, cosmetics and also smeared all over face masks….
They’re effectively dead.
That’s why I’m not getting very far, no matter how much solid evidence I bring on this blog, no matter how much sourced and verified information I share here.
Now that I have this crucial piece of information, I can see why I’m feeling down and angry.
I’ve been taken out by all the apathy, condescension, denial, fake ’emuna’, and self-righteousness of the spiritual walking-dead.
I don’t have a problem, that all this stuff is upsetting me.
All the spiritual zombies out there have a problem – a massive spiritual problem – that it’s not upsetting THEM anywhere near as much as it should be.
And now we have that all nice and clear, I’m feeling way, way happier again.
PS: I read this in the ‘Advice’ book over Shabbat, (No.10, in the chapter called ‘Tzaddik’):
“Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they, seeing with their eyes and hearing with their ears and understanding with their heart, return and be healed (Isiaiah 6:10).
Before a person draws close to the Tzaddik, his heart is fat, his ears are heavy etc. This means that his heart and ears are shut and his eyes are blind to the truth.
He is unable to come to his senses and return to God.
But when he binds himself to the Tzaddikim and follows their guidance, his heart, his eyes and his ears are opened. He sees, hears and understands the truth and becomes worthy of returning to God.”
