Courageous and Faithful

Chassidut teach us that we should learn from everything....[+/-] show/hide text

You see it withdrawing, sometimes for few hours before coming back to it's borders.
It lets you see the place it occupied, leaving you able to walk on the strand
and pick up the residue of what it was carrying and belonged to it....
.... There, you find lost objects, pieces of jewelry, messages in bottles, shells and stones and you take it with you as a proof you were there.
You are not burgling to its place, because for all eternity, this natural tzimtzoum was written for you to happen there, at that precise time.
The Majesty of the sea imposes itself to the world; nevertheless, it withdraws in front of you, in front of millions of witnesses,
and lets you take your plunder.
You take your share ... away from it's original place.... giving it a new existence as soon as it comes into your hands.
What will you do with it once you will be back home?
Some of us will keep it preciously, just to show it off,
Some will keep it in a pocket and forget about it,
Few, will look at it from time to time,
Whatever you'll choose is your story and uniqueness.

So in life,
HaShem hides Himself from our eyes, for the sole benefit of leaving us with a treasure incarnated in Torah,
leaving us with hints for us to use, and give us another existence to refine or elevate.
Also, we step back like the sea, to come back with more strength to our true self, to our Creator. We distance ourselves from what we were before.
For that, we have to allow another space to live in.... that perhaps will not be for us to inhabit yet ... perhaps for nobody, it's a possibility.
This is a spiritual place that waits for us, a place to be in the future, a place to occur ...
We let scoria of what, once, was ours and is not anymore,
of what was never ours, but that we stole in some ways,
or that we were given, but we never wanted to take.
What we leave back is " mineral “. We leave it behind us.
In all cases, we come back to our true self, with some achievement stones, a few more Holy Jewels, LeChaim bottles, messages from heaven,
objects of Kedusha, Mitzvah shells to protect us, Lives to be lived and ready to achieve.
We took in lost items, and we transformed them and made them count.

Although we left the strand, others will walk on it, using our steps and traces,
gathering up our losses and transform them into diamonds.

Nothing is never lost.
Sometimes we are walkers, Oceans or losses....

We are Oceans of Life, our destiny written since the world is world.
Hashem's Tzimsoum: Our life.
HIS Grace's Grace. Asylum's land in HIS land.
We are all courageous and faithful, treasure left on the sand also to be ultimately cherished and brought back HOME.

It only leads us to contemplate the sea....





והיה השם למלך על כל הארץ, ביום ההוא יהיה השם אחד - ושמו אחד ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds אין עוד מלבדו
