I was looking at the news tonight and became dizzy with all the shtus (cow poop), Bush wants us to dismantle our country (Israel), the Arabs want us extinct(Jews), Canada wants our passports, all these things. But the truth is they are there only to blind us to the truth. It's a spiritual matrix. In this way Hashem (G-d) hides His involvement in the affairs of men. It's called hester panim (the hiding of the face). It causes all to appear natural (derek a teva), by natural means. This is to provide us the chance to have free will, for He is a just and righteous king and His justice is pure. We have to believe without seeing, this is called emunah (faith).
But I believe so that I can see. It's only by believing that we may see clearly. What happens day to day in this world is a lie,( olam shecker) for the Torah of truth tells us what was and what is, and what will be. All we have to do is not to be distracted along the way.
We are nearing the end of history. I know "they've said that for thousands of years". But I don't care what they say, I believe Hashem, and His word says differently.
So I asked a question (previous post), have you found an answer? Are you comfortable with where you are? If not there is a path, and there are those of us who can help. But you have to take the first step. You have to decide to believe to such a degree that it becomes action, only when your belief becomes action (mahahsey) can you call it emunah (faith) and without emunah we can't see the truth.
In the morning prayers there's a pasuk (verse) and I paraphrase "let man always fear heaven and speak the truth in his heart" Make sure you're not lying to yourself, because when we start to believe ourselves and/or CNN, Fox, ABC, CBS, NBC, and not the Word, then we're in the most dangerous of all places.
The creator of the Heavens and the Earth He alone is King, He alone is truth, for it says "He is not a man that He should lie". So with all that is going on in this loud world of lies, find peace in the fact that there is a manager who sees hears and controls all. Trust in Him, and have the courage to believe in the quiet of His truth.
