Some days, I kind of feel a little smashed up.

Like I got dropped on a hard floor – repeatedly.

Sometimes, this life is hard.

We are at the end of such a long process of exile, and our souls have stuffed things up so many times already, and there is so little ‘wholeness’ and ‘completeness’ in the world, and so many tikkunim to go through…well.

It’s like Rabbenu said:

“They have broken us, like a broken potsherd.”

====

How to put those pieces back together?

Is it even possible, to put their pieces back together?

Pieces that got broken over the last 5781 years of history, and that are still chasing their shleimut… endlessly.

====s

These were my thoughts, when a friend called me and told me about kintsugi pottery.

====

Kintsugi is a Japanese art-form, where broken pottery is kind of stuck back together with gold and silver.

It’s beautiful.

Way more beautiful than the original, unbroken, pottery ever could have been.

====

We are living in the time of the second set of luchot.

The first set got smashed by Moshe Rabbenu.

And ever since, we’ve been living in a reality where it’s the second – and third, and fourth, and 85th – attempt is the one that really sticks, the one that is really ‘meant to be’, the one that really gets there, somehow.

Modern life can be so very hard, emotionally, because we all put so much effort in to so many things – and somehow, so often, it just gets smashed to pieces.

What, I’m going to start again?

I’m going to try again?

Who has the energy, who has the koach to keep going, when so much just ends up being smashed apart again?

====

That applies to relationships.

It applies to our teshuva process.

Sometimes, it applies to our finances, our careers, the gashmius foundation of our lives.

Sometimes – the darkest times – it applies to our faith and emuna.

And even Rabbenu experienced this.

“They have broken us, like a broken potsherd.”

====

At those times, it’s hard to imagine that what was ‘broken’ can ever be whole and useful again.

I’m in pieces on the floor, here.

I can’t even get out of bed in the morning, how do you want me to turn this relationship around, turn my life around, turn my teshuva process around?!

How do you want me to fix the world, God, when I am so broken myself?

====

The answer is to just bring our broken pieces to the True Tzaddik, and let him get on with the job of putting us back together.

With the ‘gold’ of appropriate judgment, and the ‘silver’ of appropriate compassion.

Sometimes, it’s a long, drawn-out, painstaking process.

So many shards to deal with, so many sparks of previous lives that need gathering up, and replacing in the correct spot.

The work requires a lot of patience.

====

But at the end, if we don’t give up and walk away, the vessel is finally made ‘whole’ again.

And is far more beautiful than before it got all smashed up.

As long as we don’t give up in the middle.

Around 2-3 months ago, I suddenly felt the need to have a really big picture of Rav Berland on my wall.

***Update***

Over the last few years, I’ve had small, more discrete pictures of the Rav in various places, sometimes more prominently than others.

When the opposition against the Rav was at its peak, around 4 years ago, I decided I would rather move those pictures to a less obvious spot away from the Shabbos table, than risk getting into shouting matches with guests about what they thought they knew about the Rav, based on the lying media and NWO propaganda sites like Yeshiva World News.

And then with all this ‘Covid 19’ lockdown stuff, we had a lot of people frequenting the house who had strong – and not altogether positive – opinions of the Rav, so even though I had my pictures up in the living room, they were still keeping a low profile.

====

But then, around three months ago, I suddenly had this overwhelming urge to put the biggest picture of the Rav I could find, up on the main wall downstairs.

My husband wasn’t so sure that was a good idea, and I also felt a little trepidation about sticking the Rav so obviously in people’s faces, so to speak. Maybe, that’s just asking for arguments and unpleasantness? Maybe, it’s just going to cause unnecessary trouble with certain members of my family that are not as ‘pro-Rav’ as maybe I’d like them to be?

I had all these thoughts going around, like a washing machine, for a couple of weeks.

But ultimately, I came back to the whispering of my soul, that somehow or other, I really needed a massive picture of the Rav on my wall, for peace of mind and spiritual protection.

====

I cover a lot of ground on this blog.

I research a lot of things that probably some nasty people would prefer me to leave alone.

And I’ve had the feeling all along, that what is guiding that research, and what is protecting me from harm, is my connection to the Rav, Rav Berland.

In One in a Generation Volume I, one of the leading kabbalists of the last generation explained that the Rav destroys the demons and the dark forces for many miles around him.

And with everything that’s been surfacing here in recent months, I have felt that in my soul, mamash, that I’m sheltering under the Rav’s wings, while I write all this stuff and try to figure out what’s really going on, here.

====

That said, having a massive picture of the Rav on the wall is still a big statement.

And I knew it would probably invite ‘comments’, from people who think they know everything because they read the Yeshiva World News.

So, I sat on the idea for a couple more weeks, until one day, the urge to get a massive picture became so strong, I couldn’t fight it down anymore. That day, I picked out a nice image, stuck it on a flash drive, and had every intention of taking it down to the print shop. Somehow or other, I just didn’t make it.

Which was lucky.

Because – long story short – someone my husband knows at Shuvu Banim came over that night, unexpectedly, and brought with him the biggest picture of the Rav I’d ever seen, nicely surrounded by a heavy gilt frame.

====

Did you ask for this?

I asked my husband, incredulous.

He looked back at me equally incredulous, because of course he hadn’t.

Yet here we were, the proud owners of a totally massive picture of the Rav, that sends the unmistakeable message to every person that enters our home that we are 100% with the Rav.

====

I was thinking about that ‘big picture’, as I read a few of the comments that have appeared here in recent days ‘knocking’ the Rav.

I don’t want to put people off from reading, I don’t want to get into unnecessary fights.

But I’ve come to realise that trying to hide my affiliation with Rav Berland, so that people will take the rest of my investigative journalism ‘seriously’ is not something I’m willing to do any longer.

If you think I’m a crack-pot, biased ‘cult member’ because my search for the truth lead me to Rav Berland’s door – what can I do?

I set all the facts as I find them, I stack up the information as it appears, and draw the obvious conclusions.

I did that for ‘Covid 19’, for the murder in Meron, for all this Frankist-Freemason ‘Real Jewish History’ stuff – and of course, preceding all this, that’s also how I operated with trying to learn what the truth was about all the false accusations levelled against the Rav.

If you don’t think my ‘investigations’ are thorough enough, or factual enough – you are welcome to stop reading the blog.

Because from here on in, my support for the Rav is only going to get more obvious.

====

Last week, I happened to go to THIS blog, where I read THIS post.

It doesn’t really matter what it was saying, the point is what one of the commentators underneath wrote, which I’m reproducing below:

Lux Noahide said…

enough!

are we here making calculations to find a destiny and meanwhile the just that can bring Redemption (Rav Eliezer ben Etya) remains under house arrest and at risk of life?

are we not ashamed?

this is all outrageous.

the problem is not the Americans, the problem is not the Arabs. the problem is our eyes, our mouths that don’t stop with lashon hara.

Redemption may come at that moment, but who of us is prepared to recognize Tzadik haDor?

====

Wow, I thought to myself.

Good for them for having the guts for telling the truth like this.

As a Jew, I realised I have a lot to learn from the simple, strong emunat tzaddikim of that ‘Lux Noahide’.

Going forward, there are going to be a million and one explanations for why we are all suffering so much; why all these forest fires are still happening (including the one I saw out my window in Jerusalem on Shabbat afternoon); why so many people seem to be dying in so many bizarre freak accidents in Israel; why the ‘bad’ appears to keep winning; why life seems to be so very hard, in so many ways, for so many people.

But it all boils down to this:

The people who are prepared to recognise the Tzaddik HaDor, Rav Eliezer Berland, will have it way easier, as this geula process continues.

====

That doesn’t necessarily mean ‘easy’, but it does mean ‘way easier’.

Already, most of those people didn’t fall for all the ‘Covid 19’ hype that saw millions of people being injected with experimental nanobot technology that can hack into their cells.

We already knew that the same police who’d been chasing Rabbi Berland for a decade, and the same corrupt government who’d kept him in prison for years without a trial, and the same journalists that had written one lying story after another simply couldn’t be trusted to tell the truth.

About anything.

But especially about Rav Berland and ‘Covid 19’.

====

We also knew that the same ‘rabbis’ who could find the Tzaddik HaDor guilty of crimes he never committed in a million years, and who could ‘excommunicate’ a whole kehilla of tens of thousands of people based on the obvious lies of a sole witness also couldn’t be trusted to give real guidance about what was true and false, when it came to experimental gene therapies masquerading as vaccines.

Yeah, yeah, I know other ‘gadolei hador’ said the ‘vaccine’ is safe for everyone, including pregnant women.

Go tell that to my friend’s neighbor, who lost her unborn child at 5 months, 3 days after getting the Pfizer jab.

I’m sure she’ll find that very reassuring.

====

Right from the start of this whole ‘Covid 19’ circus, I have literally felt that the ‘worst is passing me by’, because I’m under the Rav’s wing, following his advice, praying for him, and just generally doing whatever I can to play an active part in ‘fighting’ on behalf of the Rav.

And if that’s not enough for the sceptics – and of course, it’s never enough for the sceptics – there have also been the growing numbers of real tzaddikim who have been putting out more and more obvious messages connecting ‘geula’ with getting with the Rav, and praying for the safety and success of Moshiach.

====

Before Covid 19 really took off, we had message like this, from February 2020:

Leading Kabbalist’s stark warning that talking against Rav Berland is linked to coronavirus COVID-19. 

Man o man, was it linked.

As I pointed out in a previous post, the ‘rabid believers in Covid 19’ and the ‘rabid believers of false, slanderous stories against the Rav’ score an almost perfect overlap.

All this is midda kneged midda.

Then in recent weeks, we’ve had more messages like these:

Kabbalist Reveals Reason for 4th Intifada and Warns of Tragedy a 1000 Times Greater

Rav Yekutiel Fish: Tragedies in Meron and Karlin caused by war against Mashiach

Hidden Tzaddik who Foresaw Meron Tragedy Reveals How to be Saved in the Future

====

And then of course, we’ve had all those weird ‘supernatural’ fires starting up again in Israel, exactly the same time the corrupt State forced the Rav into a ‘plea bargain’ just so he’d have a chance to actually leave prison at some time in the next year, having been kept imprisoned with no trial for over a year already.

For the ‘crime’ of taking charitable donations….

And the exact same time that the Rav was taking out of the court in an ambulance, that’s when the ground opened up in the ‘Sha’arei Tzedek’ carpark.

And all this just happened to be in Parshat Korach, when those who went against the Tzaddik HaDor were swallowed by the earth.

Move along here, nothing to see, no connections to be made with Rav Berland. All these things are only happening because women aren’t wearing five pairs of bullet proof tights and ‘King Bibi’ finally got dethroned (along with Trump)…

====

Yes, I know it’s hard to ‘row back’ from believing all those lies about the Rav.

Yes, I know it’s difficult to get with the Rav, because you already have all those other rabbonim that you ‘belong’ to, in your yeshiva, and in your communities, and most of them aren’t saying a thing about the Rav – or God forbid, they are even saying bad things.

Yes, I know you want Moshiach and geula to come the sweet way while you continue operating like a spiritual robot, with your brain and soul totally disengaged from the world around you, and your real life, and all the clues God is sending down, willy-nilly, about so many things that need to be changed and addressed.

I know, I know.

====

But here’s what else I know:

The people who get with the Rav, Rabbi Eliezer Berland, Rav Eliezer ben Ettia, at this point in time, will have a much easier and gentler entry into the world of the truth than the people who aren’t.

Carry on being with your Rav, your kehilla, your community – but also admit that Rav Berland is the Tzaddik HaDor, and do whatever you can to help him fight the spiritual battle for good.

Pray the prayers HE tells you to pray, because he really knows what he’s talking about.

Pay the pidyonot nefesh to him, because that’s what really works.

Spread the Rav’s teachings and books and prayers far and wide, because that’s how you are going to see open miracles in your own life, and be saved from the harshest ‘birth pangs’ of the geula process.

====

For the few people who will listen to these words, and not just try to ‘push back’ with more knee-jerk-reaction personal attacks, I promise you will never look back.

My life has been incomparably better, incomparably sweeter in almost every way imaginable, since I got with the Rav.

If you can say that about your Rav, your derech – great. Stick with what works for you.

But if you can’t…. and let’s face it, most of the people I speak to on a daily basis really can’t – then maybe do the experiment, and see what happens.

What do you have to lose?

(Apart from some arrogance and pride in your ability to ‘always be right’….)

====

There is only one Tzaddik HaDor.

There was only one Moshe Rabbenu.

Yes, there are also many other great tzaddikim scattered across the Jewish world – but there was only one redeemer who could lead the Jewish people out of galut.

As it was then, so it is now.

The only people who will be left behind will be those who choose to stay in the dark, and to not follow the Tzaddik HaDor out to redemption.

====

So, I now have a massive picture on my wall of the Rav.

And if and when people ‘start up’, I make it very clear, very fast, that the time for arguing about the Rav, and slandering the Rav, and ‘bigging ourselves’ up at the expense of the Rav are over, at least in my house.

Supporting the Rav is the ticket out of the gehinnom that so many people today find themselves in.

We don’t pray for him, we pray for us.

We don’t give pidyonot to help him, we give them to help us.

We don’t talk about the Rav to try to prove ourselves ‘right’, or to build up his ‘cult following’, God forbid.

We only talk about the Rav to let other Jews know there is a path out of the suffering they are engulfed in, and a road out to geula the sweet way – and that we can reach that path if we’re holding the Rav’s hand.

That’s all.

But, that’s everything.

Rav Berland was just rushed back to hospital from the Jerusalem District Court.

I’m cutting and pasting this from the ravberland.com website HERE:

====

Please pray for the Rav, who was just taken back to hospital from the court!

Today, May 6th, 2021, Rabbi Eliezer Berland, shlita, was ordered to appear in court for a hearing, despite his incredibly frail physical health.

The Rav was literally taken into the court on a stretcher, as you can see in the footage below:

====

Half an hour later, the Rav was urgently taken out of court – again on a stretcher – straight to hospital.

Please pray for Rabbi Eliezer ben Ettia!

Please say a Tikkun Haklali for him – or even 3, or 7 or 10.

Whatever you can manage.

The Rav is the main thing standing between us and the reshaim who want to eat us alive.

And the Rav now needs our prayers urgently.

May we only hear good news, and may Rabbi Eliezer ben Ettia have a complete and total refuah shleimah.

====

Man, do we need the Rav’s koach and continued spiritual protection to deal with these evil people, who mamash tried to also kill him a few different times already.

When I saw the picture of how much suffering the Rav has etched into his face, I have to admit to feeling pretty sad about everything – everything! – that’s going on right now.

So, please pray for Rabbi Eliezer ben Ettia, that he should have a total healing, and be totally released from imprisonment very, very soon.

For sure, we need him so, so much.

But right now, he also needs us, and our prayers.

Here’s what’s been going on with Rabbi Eliezer Berland the last few weeks.

Let’s do a quick recap, and then I’ll tell you something you can do to try to help the Rav, in his spiritual battle against evil.

====

The Rav was released to house arrest February 25th, under the usual harsh conditions, including a massive amount of bail that needed to be posted in a very short amount of time; and a stipulation for the Rav to pay up front for a security team to be with him 24/7.

Baruch Hashem, the money for the bail was raised.

While all that was going on, the Rav’s ‘accuser’ actually had a stroke and is now not compos mentis, so the non-existent case the police were trying to build against the Rav has totally disappeared in a puff of smoke.

====

In the post-Covid world, hopefully it’s getting so much easier for you to spot the media lies yourself, but let’s just pause a moment, to catch them ‘in action’.

The horrible Times of Israel wrote HERE that Rav Berland had been accused by ‘hundreds’ of people.

FACT: He was accused by one person, backed by the main persecutors of the Rav in Meah Shearim who were behind the other false accusations – and who I’m pretty sure of, now, belong to that ‘interesting group’ of fake Jews I’ve been writing about for the last few months.

And that group of fake Jews are actually part and parcel of the Frankist-Freemason nexus that really control the State of Israel (and pretty much the rest of the world…)

====

That same fake news story said this:

The details of the negotiations on the plea bargain, which are ongoing, have yet to be confirmed by the authorities. The alleged victims’ lawyers said that to the best of their knowledge, it would include 14 months of imprisonment, compensation of NIS 5,000-10,000 ($1,500-$3,000) per victim and a fine to be paid to the state.

====

The Rav has now been imprisoned for almost 14 months – with no trial.

And even if he was found guilty of the ludicrous, fake charges, he’d only serve 14 months in prison.

So, that’s the back story leading up to what happened last week.

====

The Rav is 84 years old, and his experiences with the barbaric police and prison system here over the last year have led to his physical health breaking down.

The Rav has a number of very serious medical issues, and he can’t just be tossed from pillar to post, like some sack of potatoes, God forbid. His ‘house arrest’ location is somewhere up North, while the court hearings are continuing to be heard in Jerusalem – at least a 2 hour car journey away, even if it’s done speeding.

From the time he was ‘released’ to house arrest, the Rav has actually spent most of the time hospitalised.

====

So then, last Thursday, March 18th, the Jerusalem Court scheduled another appearance for Rav Berland.

Wednesday night, March 17th, a physician came to check the Rav’s physical condition, to see if he was physically capable of making the trip down to Jerusalem and sitting in a lengthy court hearing.

The doctor wrote a note to the judge saying it was forbidden for the Rav to make the trip or sit in court, as his frail state of health simply wasn’t up to it.

The judge didn’t accept the doctor’s note, and decreed the Rav should still appear the next day.

====

As the Rav was getting ready to go to Jerusalem, he was taken extremely ill, and almost passed out.

Instead of going to court, he was instead rushed to hospital by ambulance.

====

The Rav’s lawyers are now asking for the public to make a formal complaint against the judge in the case.

If you speak Hebrew, you can do that directly on the Court System’s website, HERE.

https://govforms.gov.il/mw/forms/Tlunot1@justice.gov.il

You need to include the following information in the complaint:

Complaint against Judge

Name: Einat Avman-Muller
Role and Court: Judge at Jerusalem District Court
Case #: 1470-03-20
Date of incident: March 18, 2021
Name of the person who was harmed: Rabbi Eliezer Berland
ID #: 006344733
Then, write your complaint.
====

And if you speak English, then the way to do it is to write in English, and send it to this email address:

Here’s a sample email, that you can use to inspire you (someone else wrote this, but I’m changing their personal details for privacy reasons.)
====
Name of the person filing the complaint: Rivka Levy
Passport #: 12345678
Address: Some place in the USA
Phone #: 714 718 2291 (USA)
Email: rivkawritesback@gmail.com
Dear Sirs,
It has come to my attention that Rabbi Eliezer Berland was forced to come to a hearing on the day following release from hospital. His doctor sent instructions stating that due to the delicate health of Rabbi Eliezer Berland, he is not able to attend a hearing at this time in person. The judge, Judge Einat Avman-Muller ignored the doctor’s report, and insisted that the rabbi come to Jerusalem anyway. Rabbi Eliezer Berland became so ill when trying to leave his home that he was taken away by ambulance.
The judge should not have ignored the doctor’s report. There was no basis for ignoring the instructions of the doctor. This was reckless endangerment of the life of this precious Rabbi. As all the souls of Israel are precious, so is the soul of this Rabbi. The judge should treat every soul in Israel with dignity and care.
Please assign a more responsible judge to work on the case of Rabbi Eliezer Berland.
Thank you for listening.
Rivka
====

Everyone has to do their part to get with the Tzaddik, in whichever way they ‘feel’ it.

Some people are praying 1, 3 or even 7 Tikkun HaKlalis a day.
Others may be contributing money to the Rav’s expenses for the security team and legal fees, HERE.
Me? I’m trying to remember him in my hitbodedut, and to read his books and prayers at least a little, most days.
And still others can ‘get with the Tzaddik’ this way – by writing a complaint to the corrupt State of Israel.

====

Let me leave you with this, an awesome way that someone else is trying to ‘get with the Tzaddik’:

rav prayer on bus

====

They are plastering his prayers across the back of buses in Tel Aviv!!!

Awesome.

May we all hear good news soon.

====

UPDATE:

I just got this from a reader with a legal background, who included it in their ‘complaint’. I’m putting the main legal points below, in case any one else wants to use them, or use them as a ‘jumping off’ point for their own complaint.

These people still care ‘what the outside world’ thinks, and about their image, because their ‘image’ is all they really have, to control us.

So, even though we know God is definitely doing everything, and that prayer is definitely the first and most important line of defense, that prayer can and usually should be backed up with something ‘in this world’, to provide a vessel for the ensuing miracle….

BH.

====

So here it is:

Maybe these international instruments could be referenced in the complaint in addition to relevant references to Israeli applicable legislation in order to evidence that prosecuting the Rav in his current health condition and at his age when there is no merit on the case (no offense was committed and the witness is disqualified) is tantamount to an inhuman treatment and does not guarantee a fair trial.

> 1. Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) ratified by IL > Art 5 provides that « No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.» > Art 10 provides that « Everyone is entitled to full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him »

> 2. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) ratified by IL on 3 Oct 1991 – no acceptance of individual complaints procedure > Art 14(1) sets forth « in the determination of any criminal charge against him, or his rights and obligations, in a law suit, everyone shall be entitled to a fair and public hearing by a competent, independent and impartial tribunal established by law »

More and more, I’m seeing that the only real answer here is to just start praying our socks off, and to get behind the True Tzaddikim.

The more I’m researching, the more I’m understanding what we are really up against, and how ‘hard’ – nay, impossible – it’s going to be to deal with this in ‘real world’ terms.

Even if I sit here spelling things out day after day, month after month – what is that really going to change?

How many people are going to use that information to ‘go against’ the evil paradigm we’re caught up in, at every level?

How many people didn’t get the experimental-gene-therapy-deceptively-called-a-vaccine?

How many people stopped blindly following all these false rabbis?

How many people really made some sincere teshuva, about all the lies they’ve been accepting and encouraging and promoting in their own lives?

====

Now I know that the war is really and truly about information – gnosis – I’m understanding that simply putting out more and more information isn’t going to win it.

This war can only be won with prayer and teshuva.

Not with more facts and stats and information.

Because there is a difference between how people react to information, and how people react to insight, that they get from their own neshamas.

Once you have an experience of inner daat – knowledge that kind of just pops up in your soul, direct from Hashem – it can keep you going for years.

====

So, let’s try this today:

A new prayer from the Rav, for the True Tzaddikim to be revealed in the world.

You can see it HERE, but I’m copying it below.

This is the only way we can really ‘win’ this war of information.

By praying to God for help to overcome the evil, and attaching ourselves to the True Tzaddikim.

====

Rabbi Berland’s Prayer to merit that the True Tzaddikim will be openly revealed

Master of the world who can do anything, please do miracles and wonders for me, like You did for Eliyahu HaNavi and Ovadiah, who succeeded in hiding 100 prophets, 50-50, in two caves.

And the wife of Ovadiah would go from house to house to collect oil, and they would only give to her one drop, and no matter how much she collected, the oil would always burn and stay alight for 24 hours, from evening until evening.

So too, Master of the world, who can do anything, reveal to us the true Tzaddikim, who are now hidden from us.

And may they be revealed to us speedily.

And right this second, cancel the ‘hiddenness within the hiddenness’.

And may they not be hidden from our eyes forever.

And may we always merit for them to be revealed.

And may they guide Am Israel with mercy and bring us always to holiness and purity, that is openly revealed.

And may we not be afraid from any oppressor or enemy, and it shouldn’t be necessary [for the True Tzaddikim] to be hidden any more, on account of the wicked who pursue the tzaddikim until their destruction.

And may they [the True Tzaddikim] always be revealed before us, forever.

====

The fear of ‘coronavirus’ is starting to recede in Israel.

And the fear of the government – and the police – is also starting to disintegrate.

If you read this blog regularly, you’ll know that one thing I’m not usually guilty of is misplaced optimism. I try to keep things real, I try to keep things grounded in real emuna, as opposed to that fake ‘it’s all going to turn out great, with no teshuva, no prayer and no changes made’ stuff.

But it seems to me, something has really changed here now.

====

It’s the small things that give it away.

Here’s a little of what I’ve been noticing, over Purim Meshulash:

Nearly all the ‘Jewish’ (ahem….) news sites have now disabled comments on nearly all of their articles. The Jpost is a strange exception to that – I have a feeling it’s being used as a kind of bellwether by the power behind the throne, to gauge public real, unvarnished public sentiment so they can calculate their next moves here in Israel.

But from what I can see, the power of the media to keep telling us that black is white – and vice-versa – is crumbling with every new post going up.

We figured out so many of the lies and manipulations with ‘Covid 19’ reporting, and now more and more of us can spot the same tactics being used with things like this strange ‘oil spill’; and the convenient ‘aggression’ from Iran.

====

There’s massive pushback happening against ‘green passports’, massive pushback happening against curfews, massive pushback happening against ‘social distancing’.

I heard megillah in two different places this year, and no-one asked for a green passport.

I didn’t wear a mask in either of my megillah readings, either, and while I was definitely more the exception than the rule, no-one told me to put one on.

More and more, I see people walking around outside mask-less.

So many of those who were scared to death, literally, by fearmongering propaganda about Covid-19, got the shot, and now are sleeping easier at night.

That makes them less likely to attack other people like Coronavirus pitbulls, and for that alone, I guess it’s a good thing.

And many, many others literally just don’t care anymore.

The police are barely giving tickets out for anything, here.

====

Even in Jerusalem, that was meant to be ‘locked down’ with a night-time curfew 3 nights in a row – so many people just ignored it.

One of my kids even managed to hitchhike, with 2 friends, out of Jerusalem to some Purim ‘affair’ out in the sticks in the middle of the night.

Others of the young people who frequent my house went down to Mahane Yehuda yesterday – with thousands of others – and ‘pushed back’, peacefully, against the police by basically refusing to budge from Mahane Yehuda, and to just keep coming in again, when they were thrown out.

====

Don’t imagine for a moment that this is happening because the police here are ‘nice’.

As an institution, they are violent psychopaths, same as the politicians and senior bureaucrats directing them.

But they get their ‘power’ from the people, and the people are increasingly not listening, and not interested.

The ‘spell’ is breaking up all over the place, and more and more of us are seeing through the lies, and understanding that the police, the government, the army, the media – they aren’t our friends.

And they never really were.

====

Yesterday, thousands of chareidim walked miles and miles up the motorway, to get to Jerusalem on Purim Meshulash.

The government at the last minute pulled all the buses, both inside the city and intercity, for Jerusalem.

Do you know what sort of spiritual ‘koach’ came down for the good side, when all these Jews started walking 15 miles on Purim Meshulash, just to get to the holy city?

On the more ‘secular’ side of things, there were Purim parties being held up and down the country.

Ok, people got puking drunk, and they weren’t so tznius – but spiritually, hundreds of thousands of apparently ‘secular’ young Jews dafka went against the government’s rules to celebrate Purim.

They connected back to yiddishkeit, even at a very low level, to give all this ‘coronavirus propaganda’ and fearmongering two fingers.

That’s very meaningful, spiritually.

====

We aren’t out of the woods just yet.

The evil government, the evil State, is holding back because in order to keep the illusion of ‘democracy’ going just a little while longer – just enough to get everyone ‘encouraged’ to jab themselves with an experimental gene therapy with unknown and potentially massive negative side effects – they can’t send the police out onto the streets in full diktator style.

At least, not before the next election, on March 23, 2021.

But it’s clear that the ‘vaccination’ campaign has now gone as far as it’s going to go, without diktator-style violent coercion.

Whoever bought the line, whoever was overcome by panic and fear, whoever was pressured into participating in Pfizer’s mass medical experiment – they lined up and had the shot already.

But everyone else – at least half the country – is just not playing the game anymore.

====

After Israel’s second recent election (out of 4…), I wrote this:

====

Here’s a snippet:

A little while back, this site ran THIS interview with Rabbi Eliyahu Meirav, where he gave his eye-witness account of Rav Kaduri saying 40 years ago that Moshiach is imminent:

“When there will be will elections, but there won’t be a government.”

It seems that could be happening twice in a row, and that a third election (without any government being formed…) could conceivably be on the cards.

====

And that reminded me of this, from the Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 98a:

Rabbi Simlai says in the name of Rabbi Elazar, son of Rabbi Shimon: The son of David will not come until all the judges and officers will cease to exist from among the Jewish people, and there will be no more autonomous government in Eretz Yisrael, as it is stated: “And I will turn My hand against you and purge away your dross as with lye and take away your base alloy. And I will restore your judges as at the first” (Isaiah 1:25–26).

====

There’s more. A little later on, Sanhedrin 98a continues:

Rabbi Yosei ben Kisma’s students asked him: When will the son of David come? Rabbi Yosei ben Kisma said: I am hesitant to answer you, lest you request from me a sign to corroborate my statement. They said to him: We are not asking you for a sign.

Rabbi Yosei ben Kisma said to them: You will see when this existing gate of Rome falls and will be rebuilt, and will fall a second time and will be rebuilt, and will fall a third time. And they will not manage to rebuild it until the son of David comes.

====

That Gate of Rome is the government, the whole political process, the State and it’s evil institutions.

It seems to me, there will be no ‘4th election after all.

Or that if there is, that’s kind of the last act, the swansong of the State of Israel, before it totally crumbles into dust, ahead of Moshiach finally being revealed.

====

Rebbe Nachman taught that Moshiach takes over peacefully, without firing a shot.

One day, more and more us suddenly ‘wake up’, and realise that the world is just one big lie after another, and that we don’t need to obey rules telling us to wear masks, or to avoid giving our loved ones hugs, or to have a piece of green paper in order to daven.

One day, more and more of us see through all the lies, all the manipulation, all the propaganda – and then our souls start to soar free, and all the evil disappears.

Because it only gets its power from us.

From we, the people.

====

Ein lanu Melech – we have no King – except for Hashem.

There is no ‘King Bibi’.

There are no Iranian nukes that can touch us, if Hashem doesn’t will it.

There is no pandemic.

All of this is just an illusion, to get us all to make teshuva, and to return wholeheartedly to God.

====

Over Shabbat, I read the ‘Purim’ part of Rabbi Eliezer Berland’s book on Jewish Holidays.

There was so much relevant stuff in there, so many awesome hints to what is happening today, it’s hard to know where to start. But the part that I wanted to share in this post is where the Rav says – repeatedly – that all of these evil people, these evil decrees, all the ‘bad’ in the world – we create it all with our own sins.

And if we, the people, make the teshuva we need to make – to identify our own bad middot, and to ask God to start to eradicate them – all the evil disappears by itself.

====

There is everything to play for here.

And on some fundamental level, hope is starting to blossom in Israel, despite all the draconian diktatorship, all the lies, all the spiritual oppression.

====

Let me leave you with this, the last message from Rav Berland before he left prison, shortly before Purim:

“THERE IS NO MORE CORONA!

Gomarnu, it’s finished, the Corona is finished. There is no more Corona.

“Now, we are building the Beit HaMikdash. Now, this is the most critical moment.

Everyone is lighting candles here, just a little longer and there will be kiddush.

Just a little longer, and there will be dancing until the light of day.”

====

Hold on just a little longer.

The light is starting to shine.

The tanker is turning around.

And geula the sweet way is mamash on the doorstep – if we, the people, are holding on to the True Tzaddikim, and working on our own bad middot.

====

UPDATE:

After reading this article (below), which explains how it’s at least possible that the leadership of the Jewish community has been hijacked – for millenia! – by pretend Jewish ‘Sabean-Mandeans‘:

A reader sent me this news story:

« Next week, [March 5, 2021] the Pope will hold a service the Vatican has named “Prayer for the sons and daughters of Abraham”. Reuters reported that the “inter-religious prayer service will be attended by Christians, Muslims, Mandaean-Sabaean, Yazidi and other religious minorities present in Iraq. »
====

These people are still very much alive and kicking, and the Pope is probably one of them.

I hope more of us will start to figure out that this isn’t a joke, or a purim shpiel.
The leadership of the Jewish community got hijacked by the ’70 sons of Haman’ a long time ago – and once we unmask them, and what they really stand for, so many other things will start to fall back into place.

UPDATE #2:

I just got this via email:

B”h the full amount was raised.

We are waiting for final documents to be signed by both sides. The Rav will still need to pay approx 150 thousand shekel monthly for the guards and security team. But for now there are enough funds to get him out.

Just waiting for the final bureaucratic procedures to be cleared.

====

Baruch Hashem!

It’s snowing here in Jerusalem right now.

All the din is BH, being whitened and sweetened.

I really hope so.

====

UPDATE: They won’t let the Rav out until the 1.2 million has been paid.

I just went to contribute my share HERE, and please, go and do the same.

(You can choose ‘English’ on the form once you’ve clicked through, and it’s the official collection point for the Rav’s bail money.)

I have never regretted a single penny I’ve given to causes related to helping the Rav. It brings a lot of bracha into your life, in so many different ways.

But don’t take my word for it, try it yourself.

And may we hear good news very soon.

Go HERE to help get the Tzaddik HaDor out of prison.

====

UPDATE #2:

They just put something up on the RavBerland.com English site, with more details.

These are the links, below, to donate for the mitzvah of pidyon shuvuyim – to get the Rav, and the rest of us, out of prison.

To Donate for the Rav’s Immediate Release, click here (English) or here (Hebrew)

====

I’ve been up North most of today, but a couple of people just gave me the good news:

The court lowered the bail to 1.2 million, and the final decision is that the Rav will be freed to house arrest.

It may take a few days for that to actually happen, but the decision to free him to house arrest is BH, final.

This from the email and text I got, with the ‘official word’ from Shuvu Banim:

“The other restrictions are still in place. No contact with the outside world except his close family members and attorneys.”

====

My friend in the US also added that Rav Berland has spoken on previous occasions of sins being ‘whitened like snow’, and that it’s a sign that sins are being ‘sweetened’ when there is a snow fall in Jerusalem.

Guess what?

There is a late snowfall being predicted for Jerusalem in two days’ time.

(Hey Ida-Fake-Name – I know you have trouble reading English, so let’s be clear that this is the prediction of the weather forecasters, not mine. I’m always happy to help the mentally impaired in anyway I can, so just let me know if this is still confusing for you.)

The last time it snowed in Jerusalem was 6 years ago, back in 2015.

And then, there was the epic snowfall of 2013, that saw half of Jerusalem cut off with no electricity or running water for 3 days.

I don’t know how much snow is meant to fall, but there are predictions ranging across the board from a heck of a lot, to not very much, so I guess we’ll wait and see.

====

BH, this is the beginning of things really turning around.

We all went into ‘prison’ very shortly after the Rav got arrested:

BH, we will all get out of this ‘coronavirus prison’ very soon.

And the bad will all be fully exposed and will crumble away all by itself.

And even people with really bad middot like Ida-Fake-Name will make some serious teshuva.

And we will finally get to hang out under our fig and under our vine, learning some Torah with Moshiach Tzidkenu.

So hang on!

No doubt, there will still be a lot of ups and downs to go through before that happens, as these processes are never linear.

But it’s fabulous news that the Rav is getting out, at least to house arrest, and the geula process is taking one big step forward.

====

You might also like this article:

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.

Long-term readers of this blog will know I’ve been a Trump sceptic right from the start.

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.
