INTO THE MYSTIC

The following is a recap of a conversation with a Rabbi friend in Beersheva, ISRAEL

MOSHE !

THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSES TO MY QUESTIONS.  YOU MAY WANT TO PRINT A COPY OF YOUR EMAIL TO MAKE IT EASY FOR YOU TO FOLLOW ALONG WITH MY RESPONSES.

I NEEDED A  FEW DAYS TO THINK ABOUT YOUR STATEMENTS.

1) I AGREE THAT “PEOPLE WANT TO LIVE” . THAT IS ASURVIVAL INSTINCT. NOW  MUCH OF OUR WORLD IS LIVING A DAY AT A TIME AND HAND TO MOUTH ! WE ALL ARE ENDURING PERSONAL  AND GLOBAL INSECURITY.

2) YOUR STATEMENT THAT,  ” GOYIM  and their bullshit Biblical prophecy…nonsense! “

    THIS STATEMENT OF YOURS LEAVES ME WITH 2 OPTIONS TO CONSIDER.   OPTION # 1-  YOU DO NOT BELIEVE IN ANY BIBLICAL PROPHECY or ANY MYSTICISM AT ALL.  THE ONLY OTHER OPTION IS THAT YOU CHERRY-PICK MYSTICAL/SPIRITUAL HISTORY.   

MY QUESTION TO YOU IS: DO YOU BELIEVE THE STORY OF PASSOVER OR IS IT ALSO BULLSHIT ??  I SEEM TO REMEMBER A LITTLE OF THE STORY ABOUT MOSES AND AARON AND THE ANGEL OF DEATH AND MOSES CASTING HIS STAFF TO THE GROUND AND THE STAFF BEING TURNED INTO A VIPER and the PHARAOHS’  MYSTICS CAST THEIR  STAFFS AND THE VIPER OF MOSES CONSUMED THE PHARAOH’S VIPERS.

WAS THIS JUST A EMBELLISHED FAIRY TALE,  A EUPHEMISM OR A LIE ?   WAS IT THE HAND OF G-D ?   OR IS IT JUST MORE  “BULLSHIT” TO YOU ?  DO YOU BELIEVE THE ENTIRE STORY OF PASSOVER AND THE MYSTICAL EVENTS OF PASSOVER ? ARE THOSE EVENTS TRUE?  OR JUST MORE BULLSHIT ?

    I ONCE READ A STATEMENT,  AND I CAN NOT QUOTE IT PERFECTLY BUT I KNOW IT IS IN THE SCRIPTURES.  IT IS,   ” BLESSED ARE THOSE THAT BELIEVE BUT HAVE NOT SEEN “.

THERE ARE ALWAYS INTERPRETATIONS THAT ENDEAVOR TO  DISCREDIT  SCRIPTURAL ACCOUNTS.   

FOR EXAMPLE :  I HAVE HEARD AN INTERPRETATION REGARDING THE PARTING OF THE RED SEA.

THE ATTEMPT TO DISCREDIT THE STORY WAS BY A SCIENTIST THAT STATED  THAT IT WAS “PROBABLY” 2 CELESTIAL OBJECTS PASSING NEAR THE EARTH.  THE MASS OF THE OBJECTS AND THEIR GRAVITATIONAL PULL  PARTED / PULLED THE WATERS FROM BOTH SIDES.  SO AGAIN I ASK YOU,  IS THIS MORE BULLSHIT ? NOT TO ME MOSHE ! AND I AM GOYIM ! TO ME IT IS OBVIOUS THE TWO OBJECTS THAT AFFECTED THE GRAVITATIONAL PULL WERE THE HANDS OF OUR CREATOR.

HOW CAN THAT NOT BE OBVIOUS ?

   REGARDING THE 13 YEAR OLD GRETA – “BULLSHIT” AS YOU CHOOSE TO CALL HER ATTEMPTS TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON OUR WORLD… IS ATTEMPTING TO MAKE   OUR WORLD A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE FOR EVERYONE AND OUR CHILDRENS, CHILDRENS, CHILDREN ?

I SAY,  MAY GOD BLESS HER !  IF EVERY PERSON ON OUR PLANET COULD MAKE A SMALL POSITIVE IMPACT,  MOST ALL THE BULLSHIT “AS YOU PUT IT”  COULD MYSTICALLY DISAPPEAR. Through hard work !

IT IS YOUNG PEOPLE LIKE HER THAT CAN INSPIRE OUR WORLD !

YOUR NEXT QUESTION, YOUR QUOTE RABBI…  ” WORLD PEACE ??….LIKE I WAKE UP SOME MORNING AND I TRUST ALL THE PEOPLE ON PLANET EARTH ?  

MY ANSWER :    I DON’T KNOW !   THAT IS ABOVE MY PAYGRADE !!  HOWEVER,  MAYBE IF WE HAVE A CATACLYSMIC EVENT THAT THREATENS TO  WIPE OUT  A LARGE PORTION OF OUR WORLD’S POPULATION……

                                                             I GUARANTEE  WE WILL HAVE  MILLIONS OF PEOPLE PRAYING THAT GAVE UP PRAYING A LONG TIME AGO !!

REGARDING YOUR STATEMENT REGARDING OUR WORLD, “GOING TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET”  By the way, that expression is very English/American !  IF WE ALL ARE GOING TO HELL,  I AM CONFIDENT THAT IT WILL NOT BE IN A  ” HANDBASKET” !!   I IMAGINE  NOTHING LESS THAN A NUCLEAR DUMPSTER FIRE.

By the way Rabbi Kerr IN BEERSHEVA, ISRAEL…… SHALOM !

  I am putting our communication on the internet.
