Over shabbat, I read an amazing book.
It’s called ‘Human Tuning: Sound Healing With Tuning Forks’, by John Beaulieu.
First, watch this, which shows how an oscillating Chladni Plate works, to turn ‘sound’ into form:
Basically, different tones cause the plate to oscillate in different ways, causing different ‘pictures’ to show up in the medium – usually sand – that is sprinkled on top of them.
But before that ‘new picture’ – that new vibe – swims into view, we first have a slide into chaos.
The old ‘picture’ disintegrates totally into a formless mass, and there’s a pause while the shape of the ‘next wave’ is coming into view.
That’s what’s going on right now.
We’re sitting here waiting for the ‘Moshiach picture’, the ‘Moshiach vibe’ to emerge.
And in the meantime, we’re watching the old picture, the old world – full as it is of so much evil and unhappiness – dissolve all around us.
And for many of us, that’s a very uncomfortable, anxiety-inducing process.
But that’s because we don’t understand how the world really works.
That chaos is the interlude to something truly beautiful, and way, way better developing.
Both in our private lives, and also in the world.
I took some time today to really think about this idea, and I have to say, it bought me a very deep feeling of peace.
Like you, I sit here watching everything falling apart, and watching all my certainties erode, and watching relationships break down all over the place, and watching everything ‘collapse’ – literally and figuratively.
And it’s been making me feel so sad.
Because I forgot, that this ‘chaos’ isn’t pointless or unnecessary.
It’s a necessary prelude to the ‘next picture forming’.
To that massive, spiritual energy shift that’s going to see a way better world forming, very soon.
We just have to hang on, in the meantime, and know that the ‘chaos’ is just another step in the geula process, but it’s not the end destination.
It’s hard to keep going some days, I know.
But I really got the message today, that God can be trusted to arrange things exactly how they need to be.
The chaos is painful.
But it’s also totally necessary, if we really want things to change and improve.
So just hang on a tiny bit more.
Until the next part of this process starts to materialise, mamash.
