For a very long time, I was caught up in battling narcissists.

It started when my obsession with the ‘Erev Rav’ kind of dovetailed with lots of difficult people, and painful relationships in my own life, and over the course of around a decade, I found myself deep in the ‘narcissist parsha’.

A lot of good ultimately came from that battle.

I wrote a whole bunch of books about how to deal with those people, this phenomenon, and how a person can free their own soul from being caught up in the bonds of narcissistic behavior and attitudes.

Those books include Unlocking the Secret of the Erev Rav, and People Smarts, and they give real, solid, Torah-based advice on how to ‘win’ the war with narcissism, at least in your own dalet amot.

====

Why am I coming back to this topic again, now?

Here’s why.

Narcissism’s main power lies in deceit, manipulation and ‘brainwashing’ other people into thinking a certain way (usually, their way), in order to control them.

I wrote a whole bunch of stuff about how narcissism shows up in real time, in our real relationships, over on my other blog, HERE.

I’m not going to rehash it all again.

But I wanted to set out what happens when people start to pull away from the narcissists in their lives, and start thinking for themselves again.

Because I think it will really help you to understand more of what’s going on around us, with this whole ‘plandemic’ and how actions in our own life really can affect the outcome, in a very big way.

====

So, here are the stages of moving out of that manipulated, guilted and ‘brainwashed’ state:

Stage 1: Total confusion

This is where the cognitive dissonance between what you’ve been told and taught to believe, and what you’re actually seeing with your own eyes and experiencing with your own flesh starts to go stratospheric.

For example, you’re told – repeatedly – that millions of people are dying from Covid-19 and that we’ve never had such a bad ‘pandemic’.

But you look around, and you just can’t see that reflected in your own life, your own circle of acquaintances.

This is where true freedom of the soul can begin – or where it will end.

People hate to feel confused. They hate uncertainty.

So they have a lot of motivation to defuse that confusion by tuning out one side of the argument, one ‘information set’ that is in conflict with the other.

At this stage, those who are drawn to the truth will start to permit themselves to question ‘the official narrative’ – even though that is terribly scary. Because who knows what else they are going to discover, when they open that can of worms?

And then on the other side, there are those who will effectively switch their own God-given abilities to think for themselves, and to feel their own emotions, off, and to just go with the ‘official line’.

This happens in narcissistic relationships, and it’s also happening in the world, all around us, all the time.

But especially at the moment.

====

The people who chose to ‘switch themselves off’ can always chose to switch back on again, in the future.

But typically, few will take this option, as the price of acknowledging the truth – and admitting they were wrong, brainwashed, taken advantage of, duped – gets higher and higher.

The exception to this rule will be if the ‘price’ of going along with the official narrative outweighs the ‘pain’ of questioning their own assumptions and beliefs.

More on this in a moment.

====

Stage 2: Cautious Pushback

This is where the newly-minted truth seeker starts trying out the possibility that things aren’t what they really seem.

Typically, it’s characterised by cautious pushback, where they start to give themselves permission to have a different opinion from those around them. And to read ‘conspiracy theories’ with a more open mind, to try and figure out if it’s really possible they are being lied to, and have assumed things that aren’t really true.

At this stage, the person is still very unsure about what is going on, and even might start to believe that they are going a little crazy, or nuts.

I mean, EVERYONE ELSE believes that [Covid-19 is a real pandemic / my controlling, angry mum is a selfless angel / my sister really does have a good heart, despite all her ongoing abuse and manipulation…]

====

Typically, when our ability to reason, and our ability to really connect to our own true feelings about things, instead of ignoring them and stuffing them down, come back online, it can take a while to re-orient.

I know quite a few people right now who literally believe they might be going crazy, because they are giving themselves permission to think what they really think, and to feel what they really feel.

And frankly, that feels very weird to them, especially at the beginning.

All of a sudden, they are having all these mood swings.

All of a sudden, they are feeling angry.

All of a sudden, their tolerance for other people, and for other people’s behavior, is plummeting through the floor.

====

Let me reassure you:

All this is very, very normal.

In the olam hafuch, we have been taught that the only acceptable feeling is ‘fake happy’.

But that world is flipping around now, and all these other feelings all have a place, and a use, and a message to give us about what we need to work on, change, acknowledge and fix.

But in the meantime, we are starting to ‘feel ourselves’ – maybe for the first time in our lives – and we are starting to think for ourselves, cautiously.

And that will instantly bring us into greater conflict with those around us who are still abiding by the narcissist paradigm.

====

This stage can be very, very difficult to navigate.

It requires a lot of soul-searching, talking to God, and courage.

But I can tell you from personal experience, the benefits of reclaiming your soul, your real self, cannot be overstated.

====

Stage 3: The Carrot

This is where the narcissist / narcissist paradigm launches a full-on charm offensive, to convince you that all your doubts are unfounded, and to entice you back into the mental bondage that is ‘their way’, ‘their belief system’.

Do this, and you’ll get all these benefits!

We only have your best interests at heart!

Of course you can trust me! Why would I lie?!

Who have you been talking to, who’s been filling your head with all these conspiracy theories?!

If that doesn’t work, it’ll also be larded up with heavy doses of guilt and manipulation.

How could you do this to me / to us?

Don’t you care about other people?

If five million people die, it will be ALL YOUR FAULT!!!!

Etc etc.

====

For the person who is trying to reclaim their soul, this stage is so very difficult, because you become filled with self-doubt, and start questioning your own clarity.

Maybe, I got this all wrong?

Look how nice they are being to me, how genuine they seem to be, how trustworthy they appear…

What do I really know, anyway, about what’s really going on here?

Hitbodedut, talking to God, daily attempts to reconnect to your inner truth, your higher self, your real soul, is crucial for navigating this stage in one piece, without going bonkers.

And if you do that successfully, here’s where we get to the final part of the process:

====

Stage 4: The beast comes out of the shadows

This is where the gloves come off, and the ‘nice narcissist paradigm / person’ suddenly transforms into your worst nightmare.

What, you’re going to fine me 1000 nis for breathing fresh air?!

What, you are going to set things up that if I don’t ‘choose’ to be vaccinated, you are going to make me unemployable?!

What, you are threatening me with a prison sentence for marrying off my child / trying to make a living / disagreeing with you?!

Yes, yes and yes.

Because all this is really just about control.

====

The downside of this stage is that there is no more lying to yourself about the ‘good heart’, the ‘caring persona’, the ‘underneath good guy or gal’.

When you finally see the true face of what’s lurking underneath that plastic, fake ‘nice’ exterior, it can literally leave you queasy for days, weeks and even months.

This is where all the brainwashing finally crashes down, and you start to re-evaluate all your previous negative experiences, all those previous warning signs that you ignored or rationalised away, in the light of your new understanding that something here was very wrong, all along.

====

Typically, this is where people feel immense rage and anger at being fooled / abused / enslaved for so long.

This is when the revolutions that transform history, and re-align the world, can happen.

But, while it’s very healthy to experience this stage, it’s very unhealthy to let it last a second longer than is really required for mental and spiritual health.

Let the rage flow up and out – but then take it all back to God, remember that He is really running the world, and make a very big effort to forgive the ‘sticks’ He used to beat you up – but without forgiving the behavior and actions itself, and definitely without ‘forgetting’ all about it.

Remember it. Continue to defend against it, and fight against it.

But don’t get bogged down in hatred and bitterness.

====

The upsides of this stage are many.

Once the mask comes off, and you see what lurks underneath, all your doubts and confusions suddenly disappear, and you’ll feel freer than you ever felt before, spiritually.

You’ll be vindicated for ‘going against’.

You’ll be empowered to continue thinking and feeling for yourself.

Your mind will start to expand in a billion new, creative directions.

You’ll have way more energy and joie de vivre.

You’ll feel much, much closer to Hashem, and much more spiritually switched-on and aware.

And finally, you’ll have left the world of lies for good.

====

As below, so above.

The more we all work on extricating ourselves from the clutches of the psychos in our midst – including family members, ‘friends’, bosses, gannenets, bus drivers, doctors, politicians, whoever – the faster this geula process will go.

Don’t let anyone guilt you, or manipulate you, or threaten you, or coerce you, into not thinking for yourself.

Or to not feeling your own feelings, and staying true to the message they are giving you.

This isn’t about following any given ‘line’, or ‘theory’, or political stance.

It’s about being real, with God.

And about setting your soul free to follow the truth.

And that’s why the Powers That Be – domestic and international, ‘out there’ and behind closed doors – are desperately trying to crush this blossoming of spiritual awareness.

But – with God’s help – they won’t win.

It’s taken me many years to realise that it’s a non-Jewish mindset to be obsessed with the ‘end of the world’.

Or to be more precise, to be obsessed with cataclysmic mass destruction, or ‘armageddon’, as the xtians like to call it.

You can understand why that is, because every ‘cataclysmic destruction’ in the past (that wasn’t man-made…) targeted the evil leaders of the non-Jewish world.

There was upheaval and massive natural disasters in idol-worshipping Enosh’s time. Then, the flood wiped out all of (evil…) humanity, except Noah and his family. Then Hashem came and ‘confused’ the generation of the Tower of Bavel, leading to a mass exodus out from the centre of civilisation.

Then again, at the time of Sdom, natural disasters destroyed the whole evil community living around the Dead Sea.

Then again, in Mitzrayim, at the time of Moshe Rabbenu, and again at the sea.

====

There’s a pattern, here.

And that pattern continued up to the time of King Hezekiah, when the massive armies of Sennacherib were electrocuted to death, miraculously, by an angel of Hashem on Seder night, when they were besieging Jerusalem’s wall.

I covered a lot of this ground when I wrote that epic post, ‘How God uses comets to fight for the Jews’, a couple of years’ ago, when ‘Nibiru’ was the topic of the day.

At the end of this post, I’ll put links to all my ‘comet’ posts, so you can go and refresh your memory.

====

But the point is this:

In the non-Jewish world, all this direct intervention by Hashem to smash evildoers off the face of the earth has always been seen as ‘negative’.

But by us, it’s different.

Or at least, it’s different if we really want God’s rulership of the entire world to be manifested, and if we’re staying close to the true Tzaddikim that are really telling us what’s going on.

And I accept, that for many people – even apparently ‘religious’ Jews – that’s a big ‘if’.

====

Recently, ‘Noach Santo’, a thoughtful non-Jew with a great deal of information to share, left a few comments on my blog.

We’ve also been corresponding, a little, by email.

Here’s a little of what he sent me, and I’ll also include some of the links – and then we’ll get into framing all this in the correct Jewish way.

“If someone warned you that there would be no markets, bakeries, pharmacies, shops and commerce in the coming years, what would you do?

Buy and store what you can, in fact hide it. Prices will go up and then it will be missing. It will be very clear: the state will arrest everyone and provide food baskets at its door, the internet and telephony will be turned off, the world war will be triggered and announced by radio or printed government notices.

The sky will be very different, with falling stars, a different colored moon, the sun will spiral and stay focused and faster, northern lights and pillars of light will spread. People will go crazy.

This is one of the reasons for imprisoning them now in the narrative of the pandemic, vaccination, election, etc.”

====

Continued:

Make no mistake about any man, there is no resistance movement.

MBY (I think he is same MBD, who will play one role first and then play another role, MBY + MBD = Moshiach) if he appears he will be publishing a book or giving talks at most. My thought is that the event, which is of an electromagnetic nature, read spiritual, will be the moment when HaShem will snatch or invest MBY as MBD.

HaShem is going to clean up all filth and hand over the government to Moshiach.

I said all the dirty: the visible and structural and even that in the hearts of the wisest and most elevated people.

====

(He doesn’t speak English as a first language, so it’s a bit chunky in parts, but you get the idea.)

====

If you go to this link below, you’ll find a lot of videos on the ‘Adapt 2030’ channel, that fleshes out a lot of the real science behind what ‘Noach Santo’ is talking about:

https://www.youtube.com/c/Adapt2030/videos

And I want to be clear, that al pi derech hateva, he has much more logic and evidence on his side than all those other people caught up in the ubiquitous fake science that has been designed to deliberately hide how the world really works, in so many different ways.

If I was a non-Jew, I would probably think very similarly to ‘Noach Santo’.

But I’m not, and here’s why I’m still saying optimistic.

====

Over on the ravberland.com site, this post recently went up, quoting a shiur that the Rav gave from prison on January 20th, 2021:

In 2012, people thought the world was ending – and nothing happened.

Here’s a snippet:

====

[They said that] in 2012, the world will be destroyed.

In the year 2012, they said that the world will be destroyed. They [i.e. the Mayan] made a calendar for 4,000 years, and at the end of 4,000 years, the world will be destroyed.

In exactly 2012, the calendar finished. They said that the world will be destroyed. People built bunkers for themselves. They said that the work of a person is 2012, this is his work. For this, he came into the world.

On December 21st, in 2012, in the 12th month, which is December, on the 21st, so people mamash, thousands of people, millions of people, dug bunkers under their homes and listened to that ‘prophecy’.

There wasn’t anything.

Nothing happened.

The world continued in its usual way.

They said that the elevators will fly and the electricity will jump to a million watts – nothing happened.

====

So even if a person comes and says, the land will be overturned – by them, by the goyim, by the muslims, there is every second some prophet who says that the world will be overturned.

The world will end. It’s the end of the world.

They had something like a hundred prophets.

He brings the thing b’ito – in its time. He brings something like a hundred prophecies that the world will be destroyed, and we’re still alive in the zchut of this.[2]

If someone comes and says the land will be overturned, he needs to be hospitalized.

You need to give him a drip. Injections to calm him down. When a person hallucinates, you need to give him a drip, and then he can go back to being normal.

====

Jews are ‘Ivrim’ – we’re on the opposite side of everyone else.

When ‘everyone else’ was carrying on like the party would never end, Rabbi Berland was warning of terrible decrees on the horizon, and asking his followers to pray, visit Kivrei Tzaddikim, make a lot of teshuva, to read many tikkun haklalis, and a few other things, too, to try to sweeten those decrees.

Decades ago, the Rav was talking about the great hardship and suffering that would occur in the Jewish world before Moshiach was revealed, and how much self-sacrifice would be required to sweeten it.

Most of the Jews in the world – even apparently ‘religious’ Jews, even apparently ‘religious Breslov’ Jews – mocked and derided him.

They said he was crazy, out-of-touch, demented, God forbid.

====

But one group of people took him very seriously.

That same group that’s pulling the strings behind this ‘plandemic’, and that’s been orchestrating world events behind the scenes here in Israel, and across the rest of the planet, for decades, centuries – and probably millenia.

That group of people swung into action to make sure the Rav and his community would be villified, threatened and targeted for destruction, not once, but twice.

And they used exactly the same tactics, exactly the same playbook, that they are using now, to ‘brainwash’ everyone into believing there is a pandemic, and to ‘brainwash’ everyone into believing that taking the vaccine is the salvation they’ve been waiting for.

It’s all midda kneged midda.

====

But that’s not the main focus of this post.

The main focus of this post is that the Rav has consistently been telling us what is really coming down the pipe for years and years.

When everything looked like it was coming up roses, he warned us that harsh judgments were coming.

And now, when everything looks like it’s really gearing up for the ‘end of the world’ – again! – he’s telling us this:

In the year 2012, they said that the world will be destroyed.

They [i.e. the Mayan] made a calendar for 4,000 years, and at the end of 4,000 years, the world will be destroyed.

In exactly 2012, the calendar finished. They said that the world will be destroyed. People built bunkers for themselves. They said that the work of a person is 2012, this is his work. For this, he came into the world.

On December 21st, in 2012, in the 12th month, which is December, on the 21st, so people mamash, thousands of people, millions of people, dug bunkers under their homes and listened to that ‘prophecy’.

There wasn’t anything.

Nothing happened.

The world continued in its usual way.

====

For the people who are really with the Tzaddik, really trying to hang on to God and his true tzaddikim, and the ‘Moshe Rabbenu’ of the generation who is leading us out of Mitzrayim, there is nothing to fear.

But for the ‘Egyptians’?

The ‘armies of Sennacherib’?

The ‘people of Sdom’?

The generation of the flood, the generation of the Tower of Bavel?

Well.

Let’s just say I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes.

====

Let’s end with this, that Rabbi Berland gave over back in August 2015 – almost six years ago.

What more proof do you need, that he saw things coming that all the ‘Youtube prophets’ couldn’t imagine in a million years?

What more proof do you need, that in this olam hafuch people hang off every word of fakers who ‘predict’ election results, while totally ignoring real ruach hakodesh like this?

Anything, just to not have to admit to themselves that they got it wrong, or that they might have to readjust who they listen to, and what they really believe.

Sigh.

====

Here’s what he said, back then:

“We are now preparing the Yom Kippur of 5776, preparing the Yom Kippur a day of salvation of 5781, when the Rosh Hashanah will come out on Shabbos and Pesach on Motzaei Shabbos.

And there will be a Purim Meshulash, when there will be the geulah, then it will be a day for relief, 5781, so will the true salvation to Israel, which Daniel prophesized that this will be on two thousand and three hundred, morn till eve, 2300 years, which will end in 5781, the year of Israel’s salvation.

The Rav continued:

“AND NOW WE ARE PREPARING IN THESE SAME SIX YEARS, AND THOSE SIX YEARS FROM 5776 UNTIL 5781, THESE ARE YEARS OF REDEMPTION.

THESE ARE YEARS IN WHICH THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL WILL DO TESHUVA, THE BIGGEST CRIMINALS WILL DO TESHUVA, BECAUSE THERE ARE NO SECULAR IN THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND THERE ARE NO CRIMINALS AMONG THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL, AND NO WICKED PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.

“These are all just stages in the salvation, it’s all stages in the development of the soul, in accepting the parts of the soul, the biggest gangster in the end will become the most righteous man.”

====

BH, there will be a big turnaround on Purim, 5781.

At least, for the Jews who are listening to Mordechai the Tzaddik.

For the enemies of these Jews, there will also be a ‘big turnaround’.

I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes.

And when it comes to ‘the end of the world’, we need to be very careful who we are listening to, and how we are framing the discussion.

====

Jews believe that God is controlling the world.

Ein Od Milvado.

There is no ‘nature’, there is just God.

If we stick close to God, and the True Tzaddikim He’s appointed as guides and leaders, to get us out of ‘Mitzrayim’, it will for sure still be one heck of a scary ride.

But we’ll make it through, and we’ll get to the promised land.

And if we don’t?

If we don’t work on our bad middot, we don’t admit the evil media duped us, we don’t admit how fake and phony so much of our inner world really is, how caught up we really are in arrogance and gashmiut and make-believe piety and emuna….

It’s going to be difficult.

But there is no despair in the world, and God’s salvation can sprout in the blink of an eye.

Even if the sky IS really falling down.

Yesterday, I got some interesting emails.

(My emails are currently going through the roof, btw, so if I don’t respond to yours, please forgive me.)

I had a whole bunch of emails talking about the Baal Shem Tov, and ‘excommunicated tzaddikim’, and how we are forbidden to question tzaddikim.

And then, I had some other emails related to NWO stuff, that I’m still evaluating and sifting through.

And then, amongst other things, I had an email telling me this:

[M]y husband is friends with someone very close to the Rav. This friend asked if he should take the vaccine and which company. He got a response back to vaccinate with Pfizer!!!! 

====

It seems all this is actually linked, so let’s try to unpick what is really going on here.

Let’s start with that last email, a person who asked someone who is ‘very close to the Rav’ about whether to get ‘vaccinated’ with an experimental gene therapy with very limited efficacy, plus a list of unknown and potentially very serious side effects, especially over the long term.

Here’s my thoughts on this, in no particular order:

  • I have no idea if the ‘friend’ really knows someone who is close to the Rav.
  • I have no idea if the ‘friend’ is genuinely pious and good, or a religious faker.
  • I have no idea if the ‘friend’ really asked that question to someone who is close to the Rav in the first place, or is using the Rav’s name to try and sway other people.
  • Assuming the ‘friend’ really does know someone close to the Rav, and really did ask them the question – I have no idea if that ‘person close to the Rav’ actually asked the Rav this question (or whether they are genuine or a faker). It seems unlikely to me that the question was even asked, given that the Rav is currently still in prison, and it’s very hard for even his closest family members to speak to him.
  • It’s also very difficult for me to believe that the Rav would say something like this – assuming all the other points above are taken care of – because the way of Breslov rabbis is not to tell people to definitely do things, but to give gentle advice, and encourage people to think for themselves.
  • To that end, I have seen a whole bunch of people get mighty confused when they started trying to use the Rav as some sort of ‘oracle’ or ‘prediction machine’. The Rav – and no other tzaddik – is a shortcut for trying to have your own conversation with God, or working on your own emuna.
  • The best way to get the ‘advice’ from the true tzaddikim is to read their books, and find yourself in their advice.
  • Assuming the Rav really was asked in a genuine way, and really did respond like this- the Rav is currently being held in prison, in awful conditions. If they can coerce and threaten rabbis outside of prison to say what they want with violence and threats, how much more so, this applies to the Rav.

They are literally trying to kill him in there, God forbid.

====

All this reminds me of all those people I knew back in London, who insisted on ‘asking a rabbi’ if they should make aliyah, or stay put.

The very fact that they were asking the rabbi showed that they were divided about the idea of going to Israel. That they lacked the inner conviction probably required to put up with all the difficulties and hardships involved.

So, they ‘asked a rabbi’ to offload the decision to someone else, and to try and throw a sop to their own consciences, and if they picked their rabbi well – they didn’t have to move.

Lucky them!

Olam hazeh and olam habah, in one bundle.

====

The yetzer hara has been given permission to confuse people tremendously right now.

Even rabbis and tzaddikim with impeccable credentials are apparently being manipulated, duped, threatened, ‘deep fake video-d’, or I don’t know what, around this whole vaccine question.

Remember, when there was that whole hysteria about a measles epidemic in Uman, a couple of years back?

(That was probably just a dry run for what’s going on with Covid, but I digress….)

Some mysterious ‘message’ appeared on the Shuvu Banim Hebrew site saying that the Rav had told everyone to get vaccinated with the measles jab, before heading out to Uman for Rosh Hashana.

I read that – and I just knew in my bones that it wasn’t ‘real.’

Doesn’t matter who really said what, how it got there, whether or not it was genuine.

The point was, it went against my own inner daat, so I had to check it out very carefully in hitbodedut, and the message I got back, for me, was to ignore it.

====

There are no shortcuts here.

If I was buying into all the media (fake…) hysteria about measles in Uman back in 2018, and I was subconsciously looking for a reason to get the measles jab – then would have pounced on this ‘announcement’ like manna from the sky.

This whole thing is just a test of emuna, a test of who we really are, and where we are really holding, spiritually.

We live in a world populated by high-level fakers and charlatans who excel in ‘appearing to be perfect’ in their religious observance, and in giving long speeches and mussar shiurim about how the rest of us should really behave, and should really act, if we want to have perfect emuna like them.

I’m not perfect.

I struggle mightily to know what God really wants from me.

I struggle mightily to maintain emuna, in the face of a constant onslaught of lies and apparent ‘bad’. It’s only my hitbodedut that helps me out, and keeps me going.

But because I keep going into that birur process, internally, it’s giving me a clearer and clearer signal that ‘something isn’t quite right’, when I hit people and pronouncements that don’t seem to be coming from a good place.

Regardless of who is apparently making those statements.

====

For the record, even if a ‘video’ comes out with the Rav apparently clearly telling me I HAVE to go and get jabbed with an experimental gene therapy, I’m not going to do that.

But also for the record, if in my hitbodedut, God starts telling me that I’ve got this all wrong, and I need to go and get jabbed with an experimental gene therapy – well, I can tell you that I will at least reconsider all angles very carefully again, before coming to a decision.

That’s how we keep our thought processes healthy and flexible, and open to new information and insights that might change the whole picture.

Black and white thinking – the ‘all of nothing’ paradigm – is a clear indication that you are a psycho.

Remember that.

====

So now, let’s just take a quick look at another topic my inbox was full of yesterday: did the Baal Shem Tov really get excommunicated by the Vilna Gaon?

The short answer is: No, he didn’t.

The Baal Shem Tov died in 1760, and the first (very limited and short-term) excommunication of the chassidim in Vilna is meant to have happened in 1772 – 12 years after the death of the BESHT.

Also, it’s totally unclear whether even then, the Vilna Gaon is meant to have excommunicated chassidim, the way we understand that word today, or chassidim – meaning the secret followers of Shabtai Tzvi and Jacob Frank who remained in the Jewish community.

(Yes, I know who was leading chassidut at that time. There is still a lot of unpicking required here.)

====

I wrote a great deal about these things two years ago, before I got into ‘Frankist real history mode’, and you can read some of that stuff below:

====

Just for the record, Rebbe Nachman was never excommunicated. And Moshe Rabbenu was never excommunicated. And the Rambam himself wasn’t excommunicated, even though some of his works (The Guide for the Perplexed) were.

Yes, there was a lot opposition to them.

But these tzaddikim were never excommunicated.

It’s important to stick with the facts as much as we’re able, because what really happened in the past is murky enough without adding to the confusion.

====

As always, I’m very happy to be sent more information and more sources, to continue this birur process.

As new information comes in, it will for sure change the picture, and the conclusions to be made.

That’s good. That’s healthy.

As soon as people want to close down a discussion based on facts and credible information (as opposed to name-calling and groundless opinion), that always gets me worried.

====

Let’s end with this.

For sure, we have to be super-careful with lashon hara, and with accepting false reports about any Jew, let alone a true tzaddik.

But that doesn’t mean that can’t question what’s really going on, and that we can’t voice our kooshiot about our leaders and rabbis in our hitbodedut. 

That is the real – and only – place that you’ll get the truth.

And it’s not only something you can do, it’s something that you are absolutely obligated and obliged to do at this period of time, when so many of our leaders literally have heresy dripping out of their pockets.

There are no shortcuts.

And the best fakers have a veritable team of professional PR people singing their praises 24/7.

====

Of course, we don’t question True Tzaddikim, God forbid.

But for sure, we question who is really a ‘true tzaddik’? – exhaustively! – before we let our guard down and move them into the ‘untouchable’ box.

Too many people have been hurt by too many fakers, because they didn’t do this. This is the minimal hishtadlut required of all us.

Because it’s no mitzvah to mindlessly follow after false prophets, charlatans and evil people.

Engaging with reality is sometimes very ‘heavy’ and demoralising.

That’s why so many people prefer to leave their heads in the sand, and to tell themselves ‘unrealistic’ fairy stories about what’s really happening all around them, and why.

It’s human nature. God built us that way.

But like everything, there is a good way of using that tendency and a ‘bad’ way of using it.

====

The bad way of using this tendency to believe in unrealistic happy endings and ‘miraculous salvations’ is when we don’t engage with the truth of what’s really occurring, and we believe that things will somehow ‘workout’ without doing our part, without getting the message, that God is trying to send us.

The ‘message’ from all this Coronavirus stuff is to stop believing in the world of lies; to start talking to God more and to get to know our own souls again; and to make whatever teshuva is required from us – especially in the area of bein adam l’havero.

Rav Berland pointed out last year, when all this was just beginning, that ‘corona’ and bein adam l’havero have the same gematria of 363.

That’s not stam, it’s not a coincidence.

It’s a big clue from God, as to what we really need to be working on, here, to get all this stuff to go away.

====

A week before the Rav got arrested, and two weeks before ‘Corona’ began in earnest, in Israel, he said this:

Hashem is not giving up! He’s not backing down!

He’s is making earthquakes, cities sinking in the ground, and the earth is covering whole cities.

Hashem is not backing down!

He’s sending a slap to China, and after that He’s sending one to Mexico, and after that He’s sending it to India.

Each time, He does it in a different country, but people aren’t connecting these things together.

They don’t understand that they blemished the covenant [a reference to immoral behavior], so they have a germ this is called ‘Corona’.

And we need to stop blemishing the brit, that’s all.

====

We don’t need serums, we don’t need vaccinations, because still no vaccine helps.

No vaccine has been found.

====

Literally two days before he got arrested, the Rav wrote the prayer ‘to be saved from the Coronavirus’, and asked for it to be translated into 70 languages. Back then, he said this:

====

We have to pray to defeat the mahala (illness) of Corona.

This is a gezera (negative decree) that was decreed upon Am Yisrael, but Hashem will sweeten it.

====

We need to wake up, that it should not come upon Am Yisraelchas v’shalom (God forbid).

We need to – and are obligated to – strengthen ourselves [in the matter] of bein adam l’havero (the relationship between one person and his friend), gematria = 363.

That this comes out in gematria the same as the terrible illness, ‘Corona’ = 363.

And this illness could finish off the whole world, plants, living creatures and human beings.

AND SO, SEE THAT YOU DISTRIBUTE THE PRAYER [AGAINST THE CORONA VIRUS] IN 70 LANGUAGES, AND THAT IT SHOULD REACH EVERY PART OF THE WORLD.

And then, we will be able to sweeten everything.

====

====

To return to our discussion about ‘bad’ emuna and ‘good’ emuna.

‘Bad emuna’ comes in two main flavors.

The first manifests itself in wishful thinking, or not really engaging with reality while still telling ourselves ‘it will work out’. This type of ‘bad emuna’ is defined by the following:

  1. We lie to ourselves about what’s really going on because we’re too scared to really face the truth.
  2. We fail to put God into the picture, in terms of asking Him to ‘sweeten things’ via our prayers.
  3. We don’t make the teshuva required to get the scary situation to sweeten.
  4. We ignore the clues that God is giving us, all the time, from every direction, but especially from our real tzaddikim, about what we specifically need to fix.

If someone expects all this to ‘work out’, magically, from the mindset described above – they are deluding themselves.

====

But there is also a second type of ‘bad emuna’, and that’s where people get so convinced by the awful things happening in the world, they lose hope of it ever turning around and become depressed, despairing and nihilistic.

This type of ‘bad emuna’ is defined by the following:

  1. We lie to ourselves about what’s really going on because we’re too arrogant to admit that God is really controlling absolutely everything that’s happening in the world, and that we need to bitul ourselves to Him.
  2. We fail to put God into the picture, in terms of asking Him to ‘sweeten things’ via our prayers.
  3. We don’t make the teshuva required to get the scary situation to sweeten.
  4. We ignore the clues that God is giving us, all the time, from every direction, but especially from our real tzaddikim, about what we specifically need to fix.

====

Or to put it another way:

Some people have a ‘bad emuna’ that it will all work out OK, and they don’t have to do, fix or change anything.

And other people have a ‘bad emuna’ that nothing is now going to work out OK, and they don’t have to do, fix or change anything.

====

What does ‘good emuna’ look like?

It manifests like this:

  1. We stop lying to ourselves about what’s really going.
  2. We accept that God is really controlling absolutely everything that’s happening in the world.
  3. We start making more of an effort to connect to God, and to really put Him in the picture as the main (and really only….) player.
  4. We start asking Him to ‘sweeten things’ via our prayers – something we can only do, if we really believe He’s listening to us, and that our prayers will affect the outcome.
  5. We start to make the teshuva required to get the scary situation to sweeten.
  6. We pay attention to the clues that God is giving us, all the time, from every direction, but especially from our real tzaddikim, about what we specifically need to fix –

Like this ‘clue’ (with English subtitles), from February 2020:

====

And I’ll add something else into the mix here:

7. We don’t despair of God’s salvation, even when things look really bleak, because we know He can do anything, and it can come in the blink of an eye.

====

That doesn’t mean He’s definitely going to ‘magically’ turn things around, tho.

There are massive tikkunim, massive cheshbonot going on here, spiritually, before Moshiach finally shows up.

None of us really knows what spiritual debts we still have to pay down, not just from this life, but also from previous ones.

‘Good emuna’ means that I do my bit, I make teshuva, I pray, I don’t try to duck reality – but I also don’t sit here thinking I know better than Hashem, or that Hashem is somehow ‘bad’ for letting things happen, God forbid.

====

If we make teshuva, if we pray, then even if we got ‘genetically modified’ with a ‘vaccine’, Hashem can still turn everything around for the best.

If we do the work required to fix things up with all the people we’ve hurt over the years, and get to work on all the bad middot that have caused so much damage in the world, and if we start to really do what our real tzaddikim are telling us, and to get behind them – we will get out of Mitzrayim in one piece, spiritually, regardless of how ‘genetically modified’ we are.

And if we don’t do these things?

There are no guarantees of anything, even if we are totally ‘anti vax’.

====

The point is this:

God has set this whole thing up as one big test, one big process of birur, to peel us away from the world of lies, and to also peel ‘the world of lies’ away from inside ourselves.

If you want to still lie to yourself about what’s going on – both with ‘corona’, and with your own yucky behavior towards your fellow man, your spouse, your kids – you can.

There are consequences attached to doing that, and you’ll have to deal with them.

But, as soon as someone makes the conscious decision to step out of the arrogant ‘world of lies’, and to humbly reattach themselves to God – they are no longer bound by ‘world of lies’ rules.

Tachlis, they’ll start doing weird things like talking to God for an hour a day; and reciting strange segulot that make no logical sense, just because the Tzaddik HaDor told them to, or sitting their kids down and apologising to them for (sometimes…) being a really awful parent.

They’ll start to admit their faults….

They’ll start to try to fix the mess they made all around, without blaming other people all the time or trying to play the victim…. they’ll start giving more charity, paying more pidyonot…. they’ll start to admit that they were wrong. About a whole bunch of things. And it’s OK to acknowledge that.

====

Our minds are so very powerful.

And our souls are infinitely more so.

If we reconnect ‘illness’ – all illness – back to God, and back to this process of having ‘good emuna’, then Covid-19 really will disappear, bezrat Hashem, and the horrible gene-therapy ‘vax’ will be neutralised.

Because it’s all just a message, just a test.

A ‘Covid 19’ test.

And we all have our work cut out for us, to start passing it.

====

UPDATE:

Another reader (and friend…) sent me this other ‘clue’, from a hidden tzaddik, back in the Summer:

Here’s a snippet, back from July 2020:

Pay attention, that this is beginning with one lockdown, and then another lockdown… Until all of us will be in an absolute lockdown. Don’t say that we didn’t tell you.

Today, it’s still possible to stop this.

Pharoah also started [to enslave] Am Yisrael with soft words.

If we do teshuva, but not completely, meaning with full, heart-felt intention, we will need to complete the relative portion with suffering, the very difficult ‘birthpangs of the Moshiach’, rachmana litzan (Hashem should have mercy).

Therefore, everyone should come, like one man, with one heart, let’s pray together, let’s do teshuva from love, and let’s merit to have geula b’rachamim (redemption with mercy), TODAY! If we will only listen to his voice.

But it’s a fact 100%, that the world will not return to ‘routine’ again.

We are in the final process of geula, Am Yisrael, and how it’s going to come – either with din (harsh judgment) or rachamim (mercy) depends on us.”

How do we get the right balance, between getting overwhelmed by painful truths vs going into denial?

More and more, I’m starting to see how so very many people could hear about ‘death camps’ in World War II – and dismiss it all as a conspiracy theory.

The human brain is built in such a way that it can be very quickly ‘overwhelmed’ by scary or disturbing information.

The kind of information that challenges all our assumptions about the world, and shakes us to our core.

Being exposed to that sort of information will almost certainly trip-off one of the brain’s defense mechanisms, aka, stress responses.

In case you forgot, they are:

FIGHT

FLIGHT

FREEZE

FLATTER

====

Fighters will get angry – either about the situation, or with the ‘messenger’ that’s giving it over to them.

Flighters will try to shut down the conversation, or ‘escape’ into being busy with something else, or go for a long jog.

Freezers have the greatest capacity to really grasp and accept ‘the depth’ of what they are hearing, but that also gives them the greatest tendency to sink into a deep depression, as a result.

And Flatterers.…Flatterers will go to great lengths to ‘deny’ the plausibility of anything that’s disturbing, scary or worrying for them. That has its place in the world – Flatterers are often ‘salt of the earth’ types, that keep the world revolving as it descends into chaos.

But when disturbing, scary and worrying things are actually becoming our reality – well, you can see why that can lead to some difficulties.

====

So, how can we accept truth, and absorb ‘real’ information that could be triggering off our stress response without ‘melting down’, emotionally and spiritually?

Only if we are sticking close to our true tzaddikim.

There is no other way.

====

Let’s return to the unconfirmed information that Rabbi Eliezer Berland was forcibly ‘vaccinated’ against his will, while being kept totally isolated in the prison ward of Hadassah hospital

I found something in Rabbenu’s writings that puts a totally different spin on this awful news, as follows:

(This can be found in the book Tzaddik, #78, page 83.)

Rebbe Nachman is talking about his serious illness, and part of why he went for medical treatment in Lemberg (Lvov):

“I used to have a beautiful body. It never made demands or pushed itself forward. Now I need to be careful when I eat, and so on.

I cannot describe the suffering I endured there [in Lemberg], mental suffering, needless to say.

I received medical treatment. I used to drink henna (a Chinese remedy). The people living where henna grows are total unbelievers. They say, ‘There is no law and no Judge’ (Vayikra Rabbah 28).

I used to take other remedies from other places where there are different kinds of heresy. When they all came inside me, they turned into whatever they turned into.”

[Rav Natan explains:] “The drugs from each place all had to come into his stomach in order for the atheism of the place to be crushed. This was true of several drugs.”

====

(The passage continues:)

Editor’s note: From this it is possible to gain a little understanding why the Rebbe submitted himself to medical treatment, although there were hidden reasons, as there were behind all his actions and behavior.

But his advice to other people was very emphatically to keep away from doctors and medical treatment.

====

Once I read this, I cheered up immensely about the Rav being ‘force vaxxed’.

The side of evil have actually just shot themselves in the foot now, because whatever is contained in that ‘vaxx’ the Rav is somehow sweetening it – from the inside.

Does that mean that all this is going to magically go away, like a fairy story?

Nope.

====

Here’s what Rav Berland taught, a few years ago, from HERE, on the subject of how to really make our problems ‘go away’:

The Rebbe (Rabbi Nachman) said in Lesson 206 of Likutey Moharan that a person does a lot of sins, and creates a lot of blemishes, and at first Heaven continues to act towards him in a good way. Hashem starts to call out to him by way of hints, and then progresses to actually calling out, until he starts to get kicked and beaten, and he starts to really suffer.

If you sinned, make teshuva!

And if you don’t make teshuva, then maybe through suffering you’ll start to understand what’s the problem, and then you’ll start to make teshuva.

Start to cry about your spiritual blemishes, start shaking a little, and if you don’t, then perhaps your wife will get ill, chas v’shalom (God forbid) and if not your wife, then it could be your kids, chas v’shalom.

====

The Rebbe promised that he would fix everything, but the question is how will he fix it?

Will it take suffering to fix it? We are Jews, nothing is forgiven for free. By the christians, they don’t need to do anything, they just go to their priest and confess once a year, and he tells them that they are forgiven, and after that they continue to act the same way.

But with Jews, there’s no such thing!

We have to pay for our sins, on every sin we have to pay. And if a person doesn’t make teshuva, and doesn’t wake up, then they begin to strike him, and to cause him to suffer, as it says in the verse:

‘There is no suffering without sin.’

====

This is how to walk the tightrope we’re all on right now, without going ‘crazy’.

‘Going crazy’ might mean that you turn off all critical thinking, all ability to question authority and to judge rationally, and willingly blind yourself to all the lies and the evil behavior going on right now, because it’s just too scary to really deal with.

If that’s you, try to work on really pumping up your emuna, and your emuna Tzaddikim.

Because evil forces really are at work all over the world, right now, and to deny it is lunacy – and will place you and your family in terrible danger.

====

On the other extreme, ‘going crazy’ means making awful ‘predictions’ about the world plunging into the abyss, without taking into account the tremendous power of our True Tzaddikim, and our own prayers and hitbodedut, and saying tehillim and doing kindnesses to really sweeten everything.

If we make some real teshuva, all this will disappear.

It will implode all by itself.

We are all dominos, and if just one domino manages to stand strong against all the propaganda, and refuses to ‘tip’ headlong into a blind rush to get ‘tested’ for Covid-19, or ‘vaccinated’ – that prevents so many more dominos down the chain from falling, too.

Don’t think you are nothing, nobody.

You are a whole world.

And if you can stand strong in emuna, and in emunat tzaddikim, you will influence countless hundreds and maybe even thousands of people to do that too, in all sorts of hidden and obvious ways.

====

All of us are mentally exhausted, from the emotional terrorism that’s been perpetrated on us, and our societies, by all these evil, billionaire-controlled ‘governments’ and politicians.

I know it’s hard to hang on, but HANG ON!

Hold on to our true tzaddikim, because they have very broad shoulders, and their strength is really the only thing that can keep us going at this time.

====

It’s all going to turnaround, FOR THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE REAL TESHUVA.

Whoever they are.

God loves every single person on the planet.

I don’t believe that the Rav and his community have been through so much harsh suffering for so many years, just for all this to be for naught, in the end.

Each person that makes teshuva about believing the evil media and the evil police and the evil State – they change the whole picture.

====

So don’t give up, sweet readers!

And don’t go too ‘crazy’.

Things ARE really bad – to deny that is madness.

But, things can and BH WILL all turn around soon – at least for those people who are connected to our true tzaddikim, and preparing themselves to live in the world of truth.

The next couple of months are going to be difficult, probably.

But hang on!

The salvation of God comes in the blink of an eye.

A couple of days ago, I was having a chat with my friend S.

We were talking about her sudden realisation that there is a ‘parallel universe’ going on in the world, that is not at all soft and fluffy, and that is the very antithesis of everything you and I want for the world, and for ourselves, and for our children and grandchildren.

That’s a terrifying thought.

And most people will quickly shut it down and run away from it – unless they are building the capacity to hold ‘truth’ in their minds and souls via regular talking to God sessions.

====

My friend has been doing hitbodedut, on and off, for a while already.

But she said to me:

I don’t get the same sort of ‘messages’ you get from God.

I told her I don’t believe that.

====

EVERYONE is getting messages from God all the time, regardless of whether or not they are actually talking to Him every day.

So then we got into a very interesting discussion about what a ‘message from God’ actually is.

My friend asked me to write about it, because she thinks it will help more people out there to take themselves, and their spiritual connection to God, seriously.

So this post is in her zchut.

====

Very, very rarely, do I get what most people would think of as a ‘message from God’ in my hitbodedut – i.e. some sort of statement or clearly stated answer to a problem I’m grappling with.

It does happen occasionally, but most of the time, God is actually sending the ‘messages’ via a much simpler route, namely:

Our feelings.

====

There has been a war on humanity recognising our true feelings for well over a century.

And probably even longer.

But let’s deal with the most recent bit of this ‘war’ against the part of our soul that goes by the name ruach.

The story starts with the cocaine-using Sigmund Freud.

A lot of the families in Viennese high society were riddled with horrible, unspeakable acts of child abuse and incest.

When Freud started psychoanalysing his patients, a lot of these disturbing memories and stories started to leak out in those sessions.

At some point, Freud realised that if he pursued this line of action – i.e. openly linking people’s mental issues and soul-disfigurement to all the abuse and trauma they’d suffered in childhood – he would be totally shunned in Viennese society and made persona non grata.

So instead, he took the coward’s way out, and sold out abused children for at least the next 60-70 years, by claiming all these ‘memories’ of terrible child abuse and incest by parents were repressed ‘Oedipal’ tendencies.

In other words, he totally and utterly lied.

And he totally and utterly invalidated these children’s traumatic experiences, and memories and even more crucially, their feelings.

====

It’s hard for me to not think that Freud himself must have been morally compromised from the start, to have done that.

But I guess we won’t know until Moshiach comes and shows us exactly what’s been going on.

What is beyond a doubt is that the ‘legacy’ of Freudian psychoanalysis has led to some of the worst crimes against humanity being covered up and repressed for well over a hundred years.

It’s a classic ‘gas lighting’ tactic of narcissistic abusers to keep telling their victims that they can’t trust their own memories, their own experiences, their own minds, their own feelings.

And Western society has been built on a paradigm that encourages parents to ‘socialise’ their children out of feeling what they really feel, and out of trusting themselves on a deep soul level.

====

Modern society shames people – especially women – for feeling.

It calls us names like ‘over-emotional’, and ‘weak’, and even ‘bi-polar’ and ‘clinically-depressed’ – when really, all these feelings we have, some of which can sometimes be overwhelming and debilitating, are just reactions to things we are experiencing in the world.

Clinically depressed people have ALWAYS had some sort of severe emotional neglect and / or abuse in the past, usually from a parent in a childhood, and especially from a mother.

====

Clinical depression is just an extreme form of the FREEZE response to being placed under chronic or acute stress. 

And as such, it’s a perfectly ‘normal’ reaction, albeit not a pleasant or useful one.

No-one’s ‘brain is broken’.

Once people understand that all of their emotional states – even extreme ones – contain messages from God about what they need to deal with, recognise, work on, change or accept, the ’emotional state’ itself gets way, way easier to work with and tame.

====

Same with things like ADD – which is just an extreme FLIGHT response to acute or chronic trauma.

Give me any ‘mental health issue’, and I guarantee it’s rooted in some sort of unpleasant experience, or experiences, or fear, or ‘stress’, that the person’s primitive brain is reacting to.

(If you’re interested, I wrote a whole book on how the stress response reacts in different people, called People Smarts, which you can find on Amazon HERE.)

====

The point being, that God uses our feelings to communicate some very important messages to us.

For example, so many of my ‘messages’ come from a feeling I have that something is not quite right with a certain picture, or person.

In the past, when my ‘BS-O-Meter’ would start to ping off, I would often just try to ignore it or bury it. I’d been socialised by society to keep talking to creeps and yucky people even when they were making me uncomfortable.

That put me into some very vulnerable positions, because the ‘difficult characters’ out there quickly recognise when they are dealing with someone who can’t stand up for themselves when they need to – and that’s when life can get very unpleasant, very quickly.

Now, when it dings off, I pay very careful attention to it.

====

In my hitbodedut, I’ll go back in and I’ll try to figure out why a certain something, a certain someone, is making me feel stressed, unhappy, nervous, angry, on edge – whatever it might be.

I can’t always pin it down – and it’s not always the other person’s problem, either, sometimes they are just triggering something that is entirely my issue to deal with.

But the point is, that God is sending me that ‘feeling’ as part of a message that needs to be decoded and analysed.

Once I learned to start respecting my own feelings, and to give them the ‘space’ they needed for me to really know what it was I was actually feeling, my extreme mood swings pretty much disappeared overnight.

Now, I have no problem standing up for myself against all the creepy, yucky people out there, and as a result, my life is way less complicated and much, much happier than it used to be.

====

But ‘feeling’ messages can also work in a positive way, too.

When I didn’t know anything about the Rav, Rabbi Berland, for example, my starting point was a feeling that something was ‘off’ in all the reporting about him.

I couldn’t put my finger on it exactly, but it just didn’t feel right.

That’s when I started doing my own research to see what was really going on, and that’s when I started to unpick the whole, sordid story of how the Rav had been framed by the same evil people who are now pulling the ‘COVID-19’ con trick on us all, via the media.

====

But even when I had a bunch of information that seemed to show the Rav was totally innocent of any of the charges that had been fabricated against him, I still took a few months to really work through what my soul was telling me about him.

When I thought about the Rav, what was the feeling I got?

Calm and happy, or uneasy and anxious?

Time and time again, when I explored my real feelings in hitbodedut, I got the ‘calm and happy’ vibe back.

That’s what gave me the courage to cautiously approach the Rav more, and to risk being more part of his community.

But even then, anytime I got even a whiff of the BS-O-Meter going off, I stopped to explore it in my hitbodedut, and to work out the messages that God was trying to give me.

Not everyone around a True Tzaddik is a true tzaddik themselves, and yucky people automatically gravitate to positions where they can have a ‘presumption of innocence’ and trust.

====

Thank God, really, for all the persecution of Shuvu Banim and the Rav.

Because it smoked out so very many of the ‘yucky’ people, who quickly peeled off and went somewhere else, where they didn’t have the whole world poking holes in their cover stories and actively seeking out their misdeeds and bad middot.

The people who are left are, for the most part, some of the best people in the world.

They are people who have been constantly humiliated and disgraced – and who have continued to stand up for the Rav, and continued to try to do what’s right, even at great personal cost to themselves.

But I digress.

====

Most people today have been totally cut off from feeling their own feelings, and owning their own emotions.

We are the ‘Prozac’ generation, who were taught that any feeling that is not fake happy is somehow bad and requires medication.

But all feelings – even ‘bad’ feelings – are actually just messages for us to decode, and clues from Hashem that are being sent to lead us forward in life, somehow.

Feelings are part of the soul level called ruach.

====

The soul level associated with the physical body and ‘reptilian brain’ is called the nefesh, or animal soul.

The soul level associated with our mind, higher functioning and connection to God is called the neshama.

And the soul level ‘in between’ these two extremes of ‘animal’ and ‘angel’ is the ruach.

The ruach is the part of the brain that’s actually feeling things.

Then, there’s a fight that goes on between the ‘animal’ brain and the ‘angelic’ brain to frame our feelings correctly.

====

When we do hitbodedut regularly – and we try to adopt a more emuna-dik, God-centric approach to life – that strengthens the ‘angel’ brain, and weakens the ‘animal’ brain’s grip on us.

When the ‘angel brain’ is in the driving seat, and ruling over the ‘animal brain’, our extreme emotional states, mood swings and physiological stress responses start to calm down.

BUT ONLY WHEN WE’RE TAKING THE TIME TO ACKNOWLEDGE ANY REAL ‘DANGER’, AND TO NOT JUST PUSH IT UNDER A MENTAL CARPET.

====

Let’s use some real-life examples.

If there is a situation or a person that makes you feel very tense – that’s usually a big clue from God that there is ‘something’ there that you are finding threatening or unpleasant.

If you feel wrung-out or down or depleted or ‘missing’ after an interaction, that’s usually a big clue that the other person is sucking way more energy out of you, than they are giving in return. All relationships are give and take, but if you are always the one giving – that’s a problem that needs to be addressed.

For me personally, if I start to feel that someone is trying to manipulate me emotionally with guilt trips or ‘save me’ stories (who aren’t my kids…), I will pull back sharply and put up a barrier.

In the past, I used to feel so bad for other people, I could really get taken advantage of.

Now, when I get that ‘uncomfortable’ feeling in the pit of my stomach, I don’t push it down, I listen to it, and I make a conscious decision whether I still want to engage with the other person, or not. 

====

All this stuff is part of the ‘conversation’ I have with God – and of course, with myself.

The last thing I wanted to touch on in this post, is that the concept of da’at, of ‘knowing’, can’t really be translated into words, it has to be experienced.

Sometimes, the da’at you get in hitbodedut, in talking to God, totally transcends even things like ‘feelings’ or ‘thoughts’.

So many times, I find myself knowing something, but without being able to explain how I have that knowledge, or why I know it to be true.

That is also how Hashem gives us messages.

And I think that’s probably the most sublime way, Hashem gives us messages.

====

Any one out there can get ‘messages’ from Hashem, starting today.

All that’s required is a bit of patience, a bit of work to reconnect to feelings that may have been in the deep freeze for decades, and a bit of courage to follow the truth and the da’at and the direction you’ll get from shemayim, wherever it might take you.

As the world of lies continues to implode, we will need that strong connection to Hashem to keep going through the darkness, and to discern the real light at the end of the tunnel, when it shows up.

Start small, just five minutes a day.

Or even one minute.

Something.

But also remember that God is talking to us via everyone and everything 24/7, and that we are constantly surrounded by opportunities to get to know Him – and ourselves – better.

Don’t be scared to feel, even if those feelings start off overwhelming and ‘angry’.

They are a part of your ruach – mamash, a part of your soul.

And when you make space for them, and really listen to the messages they contain, you’ll see how fast your life starts to transform for the better, and how quickly your feelings become your best friends.

It just always seemed so odd to me, how so many people believed that a bankrupt billionaire with very bad middot could literally morph into some sort of ‘moshiach’ just by taking office.

But of course, there were so many rabbis (ahem) explaining how Trump was a non-Jewish ‘Moshiach ben Yosef’; and there were so many dumb bloggers repeating that message – and even getting into fights with anyone who dared to question the idea – that I mostly stayed away from the subject of Trump.

Until 2019, which is when I started publically questioning the whole idea of America being some good, benevolent country, that only does goodness and righteousness in the world.

Whatever.

====

There was an interesting discussion over on Daisy’s blog, HERE, that got me thinking about the whole idea of ‘controlled opposition’, and how Trump, and other people we know, fit into that.

As we’ve stated here a few times, the swamp is controlling both sides of the debate, the argument, the political process, ‘the great divide’.

Whatever the subject is, you can be sure that the swamp has representatives on both sides of the fence, especially with the political system, but also when it comes to every great ‘debate’ or controversy.

How do we know who those ‘representatives’ are?

Simple:

They never really get shut down.

====

And for those who want to tell me that Trump was ‘shut down’ on Twitter the last two weeks, the answer is: so what?

It’s a ‘deep cover’ tactic.

If they hadn’t shut Trump down for 2 weeks right at the end of his Presidency, then more and more people would have realised that nothing was going to change, anyway.

The swamp are masters of manipulation and human psychology.

They had half the free world ‘hanging out’ for Moshiach Trump to finally reveal himself, and perform the miracle to ‘clean up the swamp’.

And in the meantime….. those people weren’t doing anything else spiritually constructive, and they were totally living in a fantasy world that ‘Trump will fix it’.

And of course, Trump himself had no intention of ever ‘cleaning up the swamp’ because if he had, don’t you think he’d have made a tiny bit more progress, over the last 4 years?

====

What can we learn from all this?

#1 – taken from a recent prayer put out by Rabbi Eliezer Berland, is that POLITICS = AMALEK.

That applies to all politicians, everywhere.

It’s just one big circus, one big distraction, fooling the whole population into thinking that their vote, their decision, their ‘candidate’ is going to represent their interests, and enact the changes they want to see in their society and world.

Even if an individual politician isn’t totally corrupted (big if…) personally, they are still serving a system that is so corrupt, that no-one who isn’t corrupt will ever be allowed to obtain real power.

And that is true, wherever you happen to live in the world.

====

#2 – So many of those rabbis and ‘commentators’ are still misleading people, publically.

If these people had an ounce of humility, they would put their hands up, apologise, and make some serious teshuva for siphoning-off 4 years of Jewish yearning for geula, and Jewish prayers for Moshiach over to ‘Moshiach Trump’.

(And let’s not even talk about all the prayers, mitzvahs and Jewish yearning that’s been ‘siphoned off’ towards other false moshiachs, over the past few decades….)

And I’m willing to bet good money that once they get over this latest ‘disappointment’ and failed prediction, they will be back with another round of pointless distraction and fake Torah.

They aren’t going to retire any time soon, but you for sure can switch them off, and stop listening to all their distracting drivel.

====

#3 – The only way to get to the truth is to pray on it yourself, and stop looking for shortcuts.

How do you know I’m bona fide, and not ‘controlled opposition’?

You don’t.

At least, you don’t unless you are doing some soul-searching, and you are double-checking if the stuff I’m writing sits well with your soul, or not.

Is the stuff on this blog bringing you closer to Hashem, or pushing you further away?

When I bring advice and segulot from Rabbenu, or from Rav Berland, are those things helping you, calming you, reassuring you – or not?

These are big questions, they are important questions – and nobody can answer them, really, except you.

====

Stop looking for shortcuts and ‘rabbis’ and commentators to make important decisions for you.

It’s your life, in your hands, and YOU are the only one, really, who can know which path is best for you, and which path Hashem is taking you down.

And sometimes, those answers may be contrary to what you want to believe, or what you think sounds ‘right’.

====

I’ve lost count of the times I’ve gone against the tide, because I was prompted to in my hitbodedut.

Like, when I started unpicking all the ‘narcissists’ and narcissism in my own life, and started questioning whether it really was OK for parents to manipulate their children with disapproval, criticism and guilt trips.

Like, when I started pondering what on earth was going on with the bizarre coverage of what was happening with Rabbi Berland, way before I’d come close to him in any way, shape or form.

Like, more recently, researching all this stuff with Yonatan Eybshutz, the rasha, and Jacob Frank, and all the secret sabbateans still in our midst.

====

All of these things – and many more – usually led me to some very uncomfortable realisations, and some very hard choices.

That’s what it really means, to ‘leave the world of lies’.

It’s painful. It’s challenging. It means you have to change things – often really big things – and to make a lot of teshuva, and to accept that a lot has happened that was wrong and bad.

And that I myself have done so many things that are objectively wrong and bad.

====

The problem is not reaching that conclusion.

The real problem is when people trip over their own human frailties, and human failings, and middot malfunctions – and then try very hard to continue covering them up.

Which is why, paradoxically, ‘Moshiach Trump’ has the potential to still be useful, spiritually.

Trump acolytes – you now have a chance to make some real, sincere teshuva.

====

Instead of fuming about ‘evil Democrats’; instead of complaining that you were ‘misled by others’; instead of pretending that really, you knew it all along – come clean.

At least to Hashem, come clean.

Put you hand up, and admit that you believed Trump was ‘the answer’ because you never really took the time to check him out in your own personal conversation with God.

You never took the time to question the assumptions ‘Moshiach Trump’ was based on.

You didn’t spend even a second to ask yourself what your own biases were, and how they could be coloring your take on ‘Moshiach Trump’.

And as it is with ‘Moshiach Trump’, so it is with a whole bunch of other things in our lives, too.

====

Trump, and all the ‘rabbis’ (ahem…) and commentators supporting him led so many people away from real answers.

You want a real answer to the massive – and growing – problems in the world?

There is only one way you are going to get it.

Start talking to God, and start figuring out which of your own plentiful bad middot are continuing to prop up that yucky ‘world of lies’, that is doing so much damage to all of us.

And then, start asking God to show you who is really ‘true’ and ‘trustworthy’ in the world – and who isn’t.

And be prepared to be totally shocked by the answers.

====

When my husband and I started doing that in earnest, around 6 years ago, it blew our three main ‘rabbinic advisors’ out of the water, one after the another, over a period of just a few weeks.

To say it was traumatic is a massive understatement.

But that process (eventually…) led us to the Rav.

And since then, life has continued to just get better and easier.

====

But don’t take my word for it!!!!

Do the experiment yourself, there is simply no other way.

If you are honestly asking God to show you the truth, He will.

About Trump.

About Covid.

About all these ‘rabbis’.

About Moshiach.

About what you and me really need to work on, and really need to fix.

And that’s when geula will really start in earnest – at least for you – whatever else is going on in the world.

====

PS: I had a thought about evil Biden, too.

Remember that Haman was ‘elevated’ by being invited to Queen Esther’s feast just before he fell.

We are much closer to things turning around than it may look.

Don’t buy into all the fear porn!

They are cranking things up because they have a very short window left to ‘vaccinate’ as many people as they can. Hang on just a couple more weeks, and let’s see what’s going on then.

Haman toppled within 24 hours of being ‘elevated’ – and God’s salvation comes in the blink of an eye.

This time around, things are completely different.

That’s what I told my daughter, who was lying in bed with a stress headache brought on by worrying about ‘the 4th lockdown’ that they’ve just instituted in Israel.

Really, it’s just an extension of the 3rd lockdown, but the Israeli government excels at the art of psychological warfare, and they know that ‘changing the goalposts’ is one of the single best ways of doing that.

So, the 2 week lockdown became the 4 week lockdown, and now it’s morphed again into the 6 week lockdown….

And it’s starting to feel like there is no end in sight.

But that’s not true.

====

First, let’s state something obvious, that most of us are maybe forgetting, in this crazy time we live in.

Life is actually still pretty good.

Most of us still have a roof over our heads and food on the table.

Personally, I’m sitting here learning how to play the guitar – a lifelong dream! – and day to day, life is actually still good.

What makes is ‘less good’ is the worry.

And the stress and anxiety about ‘what will be’.

Which brings me to something interesting I remembered yesterday, when I was talking to my daughter.

====

A few years’ back, when I was gorging myself on ‘geula stuff’, I read somewhere that this third stage of the war of Gog and Magog was going to be completely different.

(Maybe it was the autistics who said this?)

In the first 2 ‘wars’ of Gog and Magog, i.e. WW1 and WW2, a ‘good’ person could find themselves in a place where bad things were happening, and sadly still get caught up in the web of destruction.

But with ‘WW3’ – the last battle of Gog and Magog – it wasn’t going to be like that.

A ‘good’ person who was clinging on to Hashem and the true tzaddikim would still make it through in one piece, even if chaos was raging around them.

====

When I first heard this a few years back, it seemed incredible to me.

What, you can drop a nuke on a city and the ‘good people’ are going to survive it?!

You can have a full-scale war happening outside your front door, and you’re going to survive it, just because you are ‘good’ and holding on to God and the true tzaddikim?!

I just couldn’t see how that was going to work.

But today….

It’s starting to become obvious.

====

I keep seeing these quotes attributed to Henry Kissinger that it’s easier and cleaner to decimate populations via bio-weapon vaccines than by yucky, destructive wars.

Whether or not that evil guy actually said it, the idea holds true.

And we know that the ‘war of Gog and Magog’ has already started, because Rabbi Eliezer Berland told us that, back in June 2019.

You can read that post HERE – and see the Rav speaking (in Hebrew) below:

====

====

mamash have goosebumps writing this.

June 2019 was a year and a half ago.

It must have been exactly when the ‘Covid plot’was actually being actioned in the world.

According to this story, scientists in Spain ‘retroactively’ found Covid-19 in waste water samples dating back to March 2019.

So, by the time the Rav was speaking, Covid-19 was already circulating all over the world, and the war of Gog and Magog (part 3) had started in earnest.

Just we didn’t realise back then what it really entailed.

====

Let me just quote the Rav’s words, before we move on:

“Today is the 4th of Sivan [5779], and Gog and Magog will be in [the month of] Heshvan. All the nations will gather together against Israel. Moshe will blow on the Shofar HaGadol (the Great Shofar), and the whole Torah will be heard from one end of the world to the other.

THEN, ALL THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD WILL COME. THEY WILL COME ON SHIPS.

It’s written in the Zohar (at the end of Parshat Ki Tavo) that the whole sea will be filled with [war] ships. Then the sea will split, and open. In the month of Heshvan, there will be the apex of wars. Sivan 4th is the beginning (of Gog and Magog), and in the month of Heshvan, the Third Temple will be built.

“WE NEED TO NOT GIVE UP. EVERYONE REPEAT, ‘IT’S FORBIDDEN TO GIVE UP’. AND THEN, THE TEMPLE WILL BE BUILT THAT WILL NEVER BE DESTROYED EVER AGAIN.”

====

It’s that last paragraph that I want to focus on.

Right now, we are in the middle of a ‘war’ that is primarily being fought with psychological manipulation and propaganda.

It’s ‘gaslighing’ on steroids, where we’re told again and again and again that what we ourselves experience as ‘true’ – i.e., no-one dropping dead in the streets from Covid-19, nothing really unusual going on that requires ‘lockdowns’ and ‘untested experimential vaccines’ and ‘facemasks – is wrong.

The media is full of fear porn.

The governments and their ‘spokespeople’ are churning out scare stories, and concocting horrible statistics (out of thin air…) and manipulating the public with measures that amount to psychological torture.

And the doctors and nurses and scientists (most of them….) are also in on the game, either because they know what’s going on and are totally corrupt; or they don’t know what’s going on, but their training in Western medicine has taught them to bury their consciences, and to not question things that really don’t make sense.

====

It’s a ‘war’ for hearts and minds, make no mistake.

They are trying to wear everyone down, so that we all wave the white flag, give up, and let them inject whatever poisonous concoction they want into us – no questions asked – so we can get back to ‘life as normal’.

Despair is our biggest enemy right now, which is why the Rav gave us such a clear message back in June 2019:

DON’T GIVE UP!!!!

Don’t let yourself be ground down by what is going on at the moment, because really, God is behind it all, and it’s all leading to something very, very good!

====

Here’s how a ‘good person’ who is hanging on to God and the true tzaddikim can avoid the worst ravages of the war of Gog and Magog, wherever they happen to live:

That war is psychological.

The people who are far away from truth; who have put all their trust in the medical establishment; who aren’t willing to question things that ‘feel wrong’; who aren’t willing to stand up for what’s right, and to feel some inevitable discomfort from bucking the trend – those people are running to get their shots right now.

They are ‘selecting themselves’ to the left, if you can say that.

There is no point wasting your breath in arguing with those people, or burying them in ‘information’, because the problem has a very deep spiritual root, and their ears are literally being blocked and their eyes blinded from seeing the truth by shemayim.

(It should be obvious that this category includes ‘externally religious’ people, too.)

====

Then, there’s the category who are trying to hold on, but who are being buffeted by gales of propaganda and despair.

Some of my extended family members are in that first category, described above, and some of them are in this second category.

I had a chat with [someone] a few days ago, who asked me what they are meant to do, because the government is soon going to force people to take the shots to even go shopping, or to travel abroad.

I told him:

HOLD ON!!!

Don’t do anything until that scenario actually occurs – because so much can and will change, in the meantime, that could totally disrupt the ‘plan’.

When people start dropping dead en masse, lo alenu – as is already starting to happen here, as the side effects of the ‘vaccine’ start to really kick in – everyone else who is isn’t automatically buying into the fear porn will start to pushback.

So just hold on!

====

Of course, that’s easier said than done.

People’s anxiety levels are shooting through the roof, and it’s getting to the stage where many people who are naturally ‘anti’ the idea of Covid-19 ‘vaccinations’ are starting to crack under the strain.

They just want some relief from the internal pressure.

From the non-stop worrying about tomorrow.

And some of them are being won over by the idea that vaccination = ‘back to normal’.

====

So, for those people, here’s a suggested plan of action, to help you navigate the coming weeks and months.

  1. Stop arguing with brainwashed people who ‘believe’ in Covid 19 and getting the shot.

There is no point, you won’t change their mind, and all that will happen is that you will emotionally exhaust yourself and start to feel very despairing.

Your life comes first, and those people will have to take responsibility for themselves and their own decisions.

2. Start talking to God for at least 5 minutes every day.

Yes, I know you have 5 zillion kids at home, and no koach, and all you want to do is eat chocolate cake and watch Youtube videos, to ‘run away’ from the depressing reality – but if you do 5 minutes of talking to God a day, I guarantee that you’ll start to feel better, and calmer, and less anxious and more able to ‘deal’.

Try it!

At the bottom of this post, I’ll link to some posts here on the blog about how to get started doing hitbodedut.

3. Get with the Rav, Rabbi Berland.

I am noticing a direct correlation in my own family between the level of attachment to the Rav, and the level of anxiety about ‘Covid’ and the state of the world, etc.

This is all midda kneged midda.

The more we believed the lying media, and it’s lying reports about the Rav, the more we are now caught up in the lies and propaganda about Covid 19.

I guess that’s the teshuva required, that God is putting us back into the same situation, and this time we have to dig deep and know that it’s all lies.

Again, that’s easier said than done.

In the meantime, I’m trying to ‘smooth the path’ as much as possible by paying small pidyonot nefesh over to the Rav, via the website HERE – and again, I see INSTANT improvements in people’s mental health when I do that.

====

Two weeks ago, after one kid got slapped in the face on the bus for not wearing a mask, I paid a pidyon for her.

She is currently doing better, emotionally, than at any other time in the last 4 years.

Yes, we have lockdowns and all the rest of it, and she’s doing school by zoom – but she’s still feeling happy, and is even now thriving in the situation, and growing up in all sorts of fun and useful ways.

Ditto for other people in my household – I pay a pidyon to the Rav, and ‘the problem’ – especially its emotional and mental component – resolves pretty fast.

This war we are in is mostly psychological, so doing a pidyon nefesh is the ‘biggest gun’ you can use to fire back with.

But only if you believe in it.

====

4. Look for nice, fun things you can still do for yourself, and with the members of your household.

For myself, that meant buying a small, second-hand Jeep and going off-roading as much as possible over the last 8 months; it meant buying a guitar (and an online course, to learn how to actually play it).

It means sometimes cooking strange new stuff – and sometimes not cooking at all, and just eating cereal for supper without putting myself on a guilt trip.

If I find an interesting book online, I get it now.

Carpe diem!

This world isn’t going to last for much longer, and I want to go into the next stage with very few regrets about not doing something, or trying something, I always wanted.

====

5. Shut ‘the outside world’ out, as much as possible.

That doesn’t mean going into denial, but unless you are someone who has a VERY STRONG grip on reality right now, you should be avoiding news sites, and ‘fear porn’ – and the people who amplify it and churn it out socially, too – like the plague.

Just work on developing your connection to God, and to the real tzaddikim, and trust that God will make sure that whatever information you need to really have right now, you will get it.

Again, this is just teshuva for being too connected into soul-destroying stuff like Facebook and Whatsapp and smart phones.

Minimise all that stuff as much as possible, find a good book, develop a constructive hobby, learn something new, begin a fun project, take a walk every day – whatever.

The hour I spend playing guitar gives me so much joy, and I look forward to it all day.

In turn, that also gives me a lot of koach to continue doing whatever I need to be doing, to keep the wheels spinning for myself and my family.

====

I was going to end this list with something like ‘work on your bad middot’, but on reflection, that’s what this whole process is all about, isn’t it?

Fear and anxiety are also bad middot.

Feeling despair, anger and ‘stress’ is also bad middot.

This whole situation is just one big test of our middot, isn’t it?

====

So, let’s circle round and bring this back to the starting point, about how the war of Gog and Magog can affect one person while totally bypassing another.

That person who has zero emuna, doesn’t really believe in God, runs to doctors for every little thing, has lost touch with their own soul and humanity, can’t deal with stepping out of the world of lies…

Sadly, that person will run to impale themselves on the tip of a syringe.

And there is nothing you or I can do about it.

It’s a spiritual process of self-selection.

But the people who are staying away from the news…. and working on overcoming their anxiety and despair… and who are sacrificing themselves, mamash, to deal with sometimes overwhelming feelings of fear without trying to take the ‘easy option’ – they will probably make it through this process in one piece, albeit it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

And then those people who are sticking close to the Rav, and the other true tzaddikim, and who are talking to God for an hour a day, and who have spent the last little while ALREADY working on their fear and anxiety and anger and despair, and all the rest of it.

They will have it the easiest.

====

Remember this:

Doing a pidyon nefesh with the Rav is a shortcut to the easier option.

It’s literally  ‘blood for money’.

So, take your pick, what you prefer.

====

And the last bit of chizzuk I wanted to share has to do with the greatness of God.

There’s a passage in Rav Natan’s writings that has always puzzled me.

(It’s alluded to in a footnote on page 192 of the book Tzaddik, connected to one of the discussions where Rabbenu is emphatically warning people to stay away from doctors.)

There, it says this:

“Rav Natan added: “God is so great, He can help a sick person even if he already called a doctor.” –

(Alim LeTerufah 176.)

====

To put this in different language:

God is so great, He can even help a sick person who already went to a doctor and got ‘vaccinated’ with COVID-19.

God is running the world.

And even if someone DID get the shot already, that doesn’t mean all hope is gone.

If someone was pressured into it, had a moment of weakness, or maybe was vaccinated against their will – that’s still not game over.

God is so great, He can even turn things around at that point.

====

There is no despair in the world!

This ‘war’ is psychological, mental and emotional.

But there are ways (some of which are described above) that we can get through the next few weeks and months without cracking under the pressure.

Just sit and wait for these forces of evil to blow themselves out, without doing anything dumb.

Because their time is very nearly up.

====

You might also like these articles:

Most days, I just want to crawl under my duvet and stay there until Moshiach comes.

But as that’s going to be at least 2 more months (if not more…) I can’t.

But the world is certainly an overwhelming and quite scary place at the moment, whatever you believe is happening.

Every day, I hear more stories of ‘perfect couples’ divorcing; of more people dropping dead from unexpected heart attacks – like just last week, the late Dr Zev Ballenbaruch Dayan HaEmet – and other tales of distress.

My neighbor up the road is a taxi driver who has lived in the area for 28 years.

He told my husband last week that he has to sell up now, because the lockdowns mean that he hasn’t got enough work to pay his mortgage.

The guy is in his late sixties….

====

So many days, I just want to stay in bed until all this is over.

Even though thank God, my own life is continuing on pretty nicely at the moment.

And I know that’s 10000000% in the merit of the Rav, Rav Eliezer Berland.

But it’s just overwhelming, isn’t it? There’s no way around the fact that the world is quite a difficult place to be right now, even though it’s still being tremendously sweetened by the Rav, and all the suffering he’s going through on our behalf.

====

On Friday night, strangely for me, I just couldn’t get to sleep.

There was some sort of weird energy coming down, that saw me staying awake chatting to my girls until 1am, which was very unusual. (Usually, I conk out by 8pm in the winter months, on a Friday night.)

And then, I just spent the whole night having such weird ‘dreams’, if you can call them that.

It was more like a statement being repeated over and over and over again that the bad people in Meah Shearim who have been connected to all these international child trafficking networks were going to be arrested this week.

Let’s be clear: I don’t personally know any people who fit that description in Meah Shearim.

(Although I’m now starting to have some suspicions, after that dream…)

And it could also just be wishful thinking, connected to the story that flashed around all corners of the internet last week that the Pope had been arrested on 80 counts of child trafficking.

(I still have no idea if that’s true or not. We’ll have to wait and see.)

But I can tell you this:

Things are starting to move.

====

Two ‘interesting’ people in the Jewish world croaked last week, both of whom have been exerting tremendous pressure on what goes on here, from behind the scenes.

Remember, it’s totally the olam hafuch, so when you see people lauded for their ‘philanthropy’ and ‘charitable works’ and ‘commitment to the State of Israel’ – that tells you a lot, about what’s really going on.

With those two key ‘props’ removed from the scene, I am hopeful of seeing a total collapse of the evil empire, any day soon.

I’m not saying that hope is realistic. But it’s what is keeping me going, and getting me out of bed in the morning.

====

And it’s also not a coincidence that after 4 months of being unable to publish any books from the Rav in English, book number 13 – Rav Berland’s Prayers for Shalom Bayit – is almost ready to come out.

The Rav’s books and prayers are totally connected to getting geula the sweet way.

Back in May 17, 2020, the Rav contacted one of his senior pupils and asked him to publicize a message in his name that:

“There are such great dinim (harsh judgments) and tumah (spiritual impurity) in the world, but my books and my writings, the Torah and the prayers, are cleaning and purifying all the judgments and the tumah from the world.”

Do you think it’s a coincidence that the day after 100 people downloaded some of the Rav’s books in English, for FREE, one of the Princes of Evil in the world unexpectedly croaked?

I don’t.

====

Which brings me to the Rav’s prayer for Shvat 5781, that you can see HERE.

The Rav typically communicates a lot of important clues and information via his prayers, that you might miss if you’re only looking for ‘official announcements’.

Here’s some of the things I took away, from this latest prayer for the molad of Shvat, 5781.

The Rav was referring a lot to the ‘Leviathan’, and the ‘battle’ that is going on against him, quoting this verse from Iyov, 40: 25-31:

These verses speak only about the Leviathan, “Can you embed a rope in his tongue, put a curved hook in his nose, pierce his cheek with a barbed hook?  Will he multiply supplications to you, will he speak softly to you?  Will he forge a covenant with you, will you take him as an eternal slaveWill you play with him like a bird, tie him up for your maidens?

Can conjurers make a feast of him, divide him up between merchants Can you fill succahs with his skin, or make his head into a fisherman’s canopy?

====

All this stuff is directly connected to the forces of evil who are trying to take the Rav out, and to plunge the world into extreme ‘coronafascism’ right now.

Read this carefully, and see just how closely it mirrors the activities of the ‘East India Company’ and the ‘South Seas Company’, and all the other slave trading / merchant networks we’re starting to look at here on the blog.

That’s where the rot really started.

And the Rav is dealing with them – and their spiritual descendents – via his prayers.

====

Next, the Rav turns to the question of what’s going to be, with the genuinely God-fearing people in the non-Jewish world (another question we’ve been dealing with, at least a little, on the blog):

Moshe explained the entire Torah to all of Israel, and every verse he translated into 70 languages, and all the kings, and all the nations heard the translation, as is written, “All the kings of the earth shall thank You Hashem, because they heard the pronouncement of Your mouth.”

All the gentiles will come to convert in the future, and a family which doesn’t come to convert won’t have rain upon them; they will have a drought…

====

When you start to comprehend that probably at least half the non-Jewish world – at least! – has some Jewish blood, this statement is much less hard to swallow than perhaps otherwise.

====

Next, the Rav has this to say:

HaKadosh Baruch Hu will renew in the month of Shevat the Jewish people, only the Jewish people, only those who will nullify themselves to the King Mashiach – 7,000 souls who didn’t bow down to Ba’al in the war of Achav, that only 7,000 men were saved from the kingdom of Aram.

Yes, all the ‘prayer gatherings’ and ‘mitzvah campaigns’ and ‘achdus drives’ etc etc etc are great and wonderful.

But if they aren’t somehow connecting back to the tzaddik hador, if they aren’t somehow connecting back to the person who is hezkat Moshiach in our generation….

Well.

They won’t get very far.

And then, they will only serve to increase the despair and apathy in the Jewish world again – like all those ‘prayer gatherings’ and ‘geula gatherings‘ have done in the recent past, which were hyped to the skies but then fell really flat – and took thousands of people’s emuna down with them.

If these things aren’t connected to the tzaddik hador, they don’t really get anywhere, spiritually, and often, they end up doing more harm than good.

====

The last thing I want to focus in on, from the Rav’s prayer, is this last paragraph:

The month of Shevat is the time of the revelation of Mashiach, because this is sixty days before the first of Nissan, that then Mashiach ben David will be born. 

And then there will be the terrible war with Gog and Magog, which at the head of it will stand the wicked Armilus, who Mashiach ben Yosef will kill, but he is also in danger of falling slain. 

Therefore, it’s written in Tehilim, “He asked life from You; You gave him length of days forever and ever.”

====

Even though this seems like an explicit timescale for Moshiach, I’ve seen the Rav say things so many times that refer to things well off in the future, even though they are couched in language that seems to be saying ‘it’s happening now’.

I’m steering away from any more ‘predictions’ about ‘end of times’ – not least, because I’ve learnt that this is what all those twisted kabbalists (and their followers….) were obsessed with.

Not teshuva, not emuna, not prayer, just endless ‘predictions’ about when the ‘end of days’ was going to happen.

So, let’s steer clear of any question of timing, and instead, let’s take a look at the subject of Armilus again.

====

Last year, over on the RavBerland.com website, I wrote this:

A friend of mine just texted me the link, to remind me about it.

Then, we got into a discussion about who is currently looking like the best candidate for ‘Armilus’, given all the water that’s gone under the bridge in the last 12 months.

Yup.

It’s our very own PM, the guy who sold us all out to Big Pharma, to become guinea pigs in the biggest human medical experiment to take place since World War II.

====

‘Gog and Magog’ is referring to ‘George I’ and ‘from George’.

The more I’m researching British royalty’s links to all these ‘East India’ companies, and slave trading companies, the more I’m starting to see that our modern ‘evil empire’ is really just the same outfit, given a modern veneer.

The people who are child trafficking today were slave trading (and child trafficking…) 300 years ago.

The people running the opium trade 250 years ago, are the same ones running the international drug trade today.

The same people who were hiding behind ‘government’ and ‘wars’ 200 years ago, as a cover for their personal greed and immorality are using exactly the same playbook today.

That’s the war of ‘Gog and Magog’ that is coming to a head in 2021.

And the Rav is fighting for his life – and also, for ours.

====

So, lots and lot going on.

And if you want to start doing things that really make a difference, and that could really tip the balance towards good, and away from evil – swallow your pride, and get with the Rav.

Download his books, say his prayers, get connected to his teachings and Torah.

Give tzedakah to his institutions, pay a pidyon whenever you hit a tough patch – and follow his instructions.

====

Armilus is mamash breathing down our necks right now.

Two million people apparently already took the Covid ‘vaccine’ in Israel.

They want to force it on everyone else, one way or another, by Pesach.

They won’t manage to do that, with God’s help, but the Rav is making it very clear that the people left standing at the end of all this are those who are connected to the ‘King Moshiach:

HaKadosh Baruch Hu will renew in the month of Shevat the Jewish people, only the Jewish people, only those who will nullify themselves to the King Mashiach – 7,000 souls who didn’t bow down to Ba’al in the war of Achav, that only 7,000 men were saved from the kingdom of Aram.

====

So, ask God to show you who the ‘King Moshiach’ really might be, and then act accordingly.

The next two months are going to be crucial.

The slave trade was big business.

Literally.

In this post, I want to set out some basic information about how the modern slave trade got started, the precedent it set for a global economic model of doing business, and why Portugal – and the Portuguese crypto-Jews – found themselves acting as the main conduits for the slave trade.

Yalla, let’s do it.

====

Let’s be clear, that the slave trade has existed since time immemorial.

Every time that one nation, one people, one army, conquered another, they usually sold at least some of the people they’d captured as slaves, or kept them as slaves themselves.

I’m not enough of a Torah learner to give a treatise on how the Torah views slavery, but I can tell you that the Torah limited the period of slavery to 7 years. If the slave wanted to continue being a slave after that, they could – but it was frowned on in the Torah.

And of course, it was the slave’s own choice to continue serving their master after that time. (IF the master was keeping the Torah’s laws. Sadly, a big if.)

Also, the Torah set out a bunch of rules on how to treat slaves that even stated that if there was only one pillow in the house, the slave should get it instead of the master.

So clearly, ‘Torah-sanctioned enslavement’ is a very different beast from what was actually occurring in the slave trade.

With that intro out the way, let’s begin.

====

Back in 1711, a few British politicians came up with the idea of creating what became known as ‘The South Seas Company‘, as part of their effort to raise money to cover the United Kingdom’s ever-increasing debts.

The UK was in debt because it was fighting two wars at once, and (just like today…) spending on the army was taking a huge amount of currency out of circulation.

The basic idea is that the people who the UK government owed money to could ‘swap’ their debt for shares in this new company, which was sold as having fantastic prospects for trading in the South Seas. As soon as the company was formed, the UK government started ‘pumping it up’ by promising enormous potential profits – at every turn.

====

But, get this: It was all a crock.

At that time, the ‘South Seas’ were controlled by the Spanish, and the corrupt British politicians in charge of the treasury knew that there was effectively zero chance of any ‘trading’ going on, because the British were engaged in a long, drawn out war with Spain at that point.

But the ‘South Seas Company’ had great marketing and fabulous PR, so a lot of people still bought into it, even though it had nothing to really sell, no money to invest in trade, and no real prospects of being able to develop a trade network.

And slowly but surely, the share price started to lift off.

====

In 1713, the war over the Spanish Succession finally ended, after a decade, with the signing of the Treaty of Utrecht.

At that point, the South Seas Company finally started to make some cash, as it was granted the Assiento de Negros by the British government, for 30 years.

Long story short, back in 1479, the Spanish and the Portuguese effectively divided the world up between them (I know, the arrogance of all this!)

Spain got South America (amongst other things), while Portugal got Africa.

The only way Spain could make a go of the massive new tracts of land it was conquering in the ‘New World’ was by importing slaves from Africa to work the land.  Of course, this is because Spain effectively murdered most of the ‘New World’s indigenous inhabitants, during the process of conquering it.

So, Spain had gotten used to the idea that it had to import African slaves to its colonies in the New World, primarily via the Portuguese.

====

Let’s interject here that many of the merchants involved in international trade and maritime trade at this point were, of course, Jews.

And let’s also state for the record that many of these merchants with a Jewish background were actually crypto-Jews, who’d actually renounced their Jewish religion a long time ago, and had been living as xtians for a couple of centuries, already, by the time we get to 1713.

====

Here’s how Wikipedia explains what was going on:

The Spanish were reliant on Portuguese slave traders for all their requirements.

The asiento specified the places of importation and the points of delivery, as well as navigation routes. The contract was usually obtained by foreign merchant banks who cooperated with local or foreign traders, specialized in shipping.

Different organisations and individuals would bid for the right to hold the asiento.

====

Notice how merchant banks were mixed up with the slave trade right from the start.

Tuck that piece of info away for now, but be aware that there is nothing new under the sun. And remember that going forward, when more information about human trafficking in our days starts to explode across the internet.

Any day now.

====

So, after the Treaty of Utrecht, the British government acquires ‘rights’ to supply 4,800 African slaves a year, for the next 30 years, to the Spanish colonial empire, and they pass those ‘rights’ to the South Seas company.

These are real people we are talking about, who were forcibly taken from their homes and families on the African continent to be worked as slaves in barbarous conditions.

I’m not going to wax heavy on the moralising, but it is just striking me as I write this that the whole Western ‘economic system’ is built, mamash, on human suffering and enslavement – and has been, right from the start.

The ‘Economic Hit Man’ model was just the latest incarnation of it.

====

====

And the enslavement of you and me, in debt; in ridiculous taxes; in a corrupt system that was designed always and only to serve that tiny group of elites at the top – well, it’s just the latest ‘update’ of a model of human enslavement and suffering that has been operating for centuries.

No wonder it has to come crashing down before Moshiach comes.

====

So, the South Sea Company now has this ‘contract’ to supply 144,000 slaves to the Spanish colonies.

And they also have competition from Dutch merchants (where a large number of ‘conversos’ also ended up), because Holland had been granted ‘rights’ to supply slaves to Spain under the Treaty of Munster,  75 years earlier, in 1648.

====

A lot of people don’t know this, but Spain actually controlled large chunks of Western Europe, for hundreds of years.

This from Wiki:

The Dutch Revolt, also called the Eighty Years’ War, of 1568–1648 was the struggle by the Seven United Provinces of the Netherlands for independence from the Spanish Empire…

[B]y 1581 the Northern provinces of the Netherlands were de facto independent…

Despite these successes, the Dutch failed to expel the Spanish from the wealthy provinces of the Southern Netherlands, modern-day BelgiumLuxembourg plus the Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Longwy regions of northern France.

====

The long arm of the Spanish Inquisition literally reached more than half way around the world.

And with Jews persona non grata in so many other parts of the world during the early Middle Ages – including the British Isles – well.

Many Jews probably felt they had little choice, except to pretend to be xtians at this time.

====

It’s a bit of a tangent here, but I think it’s a good time to underline the fact that crypto Jews could be found all over the world, in all different countries by the 17th century.

For example, when the Jews were formally expelled from England in 1290, some of them left. But many of them just became ‘crypto-Jews’ and went underground.

And a lot of those ‘crypto-Jews’ ended up in the neighboring countries of Ireland, Wales and Scotland, which explains what ‘David Yale‘, the crypto-Jewish ‘good protestant’ was doing in the middle of the Welsh countryside; and also, how so many Jews ended up at the highest stratas of Scottish society, too.

It’s totally a post for another time, but if you have time and inclination, there’s an interesting book you can download for free HERE called: ‘When Scotland was Jewish’.

The point is, that there were literally hundreds of thousands of ‘crypto Jews’ who had Jewish roots, but who’d been living mamash like goyim for hundreds of years, but who would ‘recycle themselves’ into the Jewish community, as and when it became expedient to do so.

====

There’s a huge discussion to be had here about the whole issue of ‘who is a Jew’, and I certainly am not pretending to be able to provide any answers to that question.

But it does underline the point – again and again and again – that it’s not yichus that matters, but deeds and actions of the individual.

Part of the reason the trail keeps going cold on the genealogy of so many of our leading Sages, before the fifteen hundreds, is because so many of them descend from families who were mamash living like goyim, for centuries.

And don’t tell me that eating traif 24/7, and attending mass, and hanging out in goyish society didn’t leave any lasting impact or scars on those Jewish souls and their descendents, because that’s patently a bunch of c**p.

And that’s also why the modern State of Israel is doing it’s best to close the door on the whole question of recognising modern-day ‘conversos’. It would just bring everything way too close to home.

Ok, back to the slave trade.

====

The ‘Asiento’ wasn’t just about slaves.

It was also about conducting international trade.

The Spanish Treasury used ‘asientos’ as a debt tool, whereby the merchants and traders would ‘buy rights’ to operate in their territories, and to ‘sell’ the Spanish colonies things they needed – like African slaves.

And then in return, these traders would also earn the ‘right’ to take the stuff being produced in these colonies (with slave labor), such as tea, coffee, sugar, tobacco, spices, and even gold and gems – and to sell them elsewhere on the open market.

So, the private companies and merchants bore the ‘risks’ involved with the trade, while the Spanish treasury got some safe cash to continue funding its outlay.

====

The South Seas Company subcontracted for the slaves required to the Royal African Company – another private company created via Royal Charter, and owned by English royalty – Charles II and his brother, James II – to supply slaves to British colonies:

Between 1662 and 1731, the Company transported approximately 212,000 slaves, of whom 44,000 died en route, around 3,000 per year.

By that time, they also transported slaves to English colonies in North America. By contrast, through Zanzibar, East Africa’s main slave-trading port, Omani Arabs exported as many as 50,000 slaves per year in the 19th century.

====

The Arabs were also heavily engaged in the slave trade.

It wasn’t just the British, the Dutch, the Portuguese, and the ‘crypto Jews’ who served them as middlemen, to facilitate the trade.

But I’m concentrating on the Western world, and the ‘crypto-Jewish’ side of things, as that’s the part the Jewish community needs to know about – and to make some real teshuva about.

====

Ok, let’s recap what we’ve learned so far.

For around 3-400 years, up until around the 17th century, Spain was the leading imperial force in the world, and had colonies all over the planet.

Portugal also had massive land holdings all over the world.

The expulsion of Jews from Spain occurred in 1492.

Both before and after that time, there were huge numbers of Jews who externally excepted xtianity, and became ‘crypto Jews’, often living as non-Jews for even hundreds of years.

On top of that, there were also many other ‘crypto Jews’ all over the place as a result of tens of forced expulsions, including when Jews were expelled from England, in 1290.

You can see a big long list of those expulsions HERE.

So by the 18th century, much of the Jewish community was either ‘underground’, or had very recently been ‘underground’, and had been immersed in xtian culture – mamash – for centuries.

And people were washing in and out of the Jewish / Xtian / Muslim communities very freely.

So the whole idea of yichus is frankly a big joke.

====

This is a huge subject, so let’s just finish today with what happened with the South Sea Company.

Long story short, a new King arose in the UK at this time, called George I from Hanover.

And that lead to a massive reorganisation of the South Seas Company board of directors, as the King started stuffing the board with his own people and politicians.

(Does any of this sound familiar?)

====

You’ll recall from THIS post, that ‘Rabbi Jacob Franks’ father, Adam Franks, was a very close advisor to this new ‘German’ King, George 1.

I also just found out that George 1st’s long-time mistress was a woman named Melusine von der Schulenburg.

Isn’t it curious, that she has the strange name of the ‘half woman / half snake’ that we talked about HERE, as the inspiration for the Starbucks logo?

Starbucks Melusine

Clearly, none of this is a coincidence.

====

Let’s cut a very long story short.

The South Seas Company board basically engaged in the first modern-style ‘pump and dump‘ scam in history, with the South Seas Company shares.

If you don’t know what a ‘pump and dump’ operation is, read THIS:

They deliberately created what became known as the ‘South Seas Bubble’, where gullible investors were encouraged to trade in stocks which had very little real value supporting them, but which were ‘pumped up’ with false PR and false information in the public arena.

When the greed party finally stopped in September 1720, and the shares eventually collapsed, the economic impact was totally devastating:

“Company failures now extended to banks and goldsmiths, as they could not collect loans made on the stock, and thousands of individuals were ruined, including many members of the aristocracy. With investors outraged, Parliament was recalled in December and an investigation began. Reporting in 1721, it revealed widespread fraud amongst the company directors and corruption in the Cabinet.”

There is nothing new under the sun.

====

You can read more about the South Seas Company HERE, and I want to just draw your attention to something interesting:

The South Seas Company was still going in the 19th century, and it’s ‘sub governor’ under the ‘Governor’ Queen Victoria in 1838 was one Charles Franks.

I am willing to bet good money he’s related to ‘Rabbi Jacob Franks’ – and to a bunch of other ‘crypto-Jews’, too.

Nothing about modern history is what we we’ve been taught.

And what was going on then, is still going on now.

Which is why we have to gird our loins, and keep unpeeling this onion until we figure out what’s really happening in our world, in 2021, and who is really behind it.

====

Over the next few posts, I want to take a closer look at George I, and his advisors and helpers, many of whom were German-speaking Jews (and crypto-Jews) from places like Hamburg and Frankfurt.

We’ll also take a look at how so many of the Jewish community’s ‘big machers’ actually made their fortunes participating in the slave trade, both in the Sephardi and Ashkenazi world.

(Those were the same people who owned plantations, and who were acting as court factors, and who owned the rights to import stuff like tea and tobacco to Europe.)

And how all this stuff is connected to the rise of ‘Sabbatean Frankists’, and the modern State of Israel.

====

There’s a lot to cover!

So much to cover, it’s totally overwhelming…

But once it’s out in the open, more and more of the ‘lies’ propping up the evil in the world will start to implode all by themselves.

So yalla, let’s get on with it!

Wherever it takes us.
