Message of the Cows

Ever wonder why a dog barks "arf! arf!" or a large dog barks "roof! roof!"? Or a bird chirps 'tzif tzipf''? Or a sheep says "baaaaa! baaaaa! baaaa!"? And why do cows go "moo"?

Last night in a dream, 26 Tamuz, I saw a large herd of cows loudly 'mooooooing'. Although I thought that it was extremely funny to see a large herd of cows loudly 'mooooing' in the dream, I realized that it's not funny at all and there is a strong message in their mooing. During the dream, a unique thought came to me and it suddenly dawned on me why cows say "mooooo". In Hebrew, Mooooo is spelled מוּ and its gematria is 46. The Roshei Tevot (initial letters of the consecutive words) of Moshiach ben David is MBD - מבד and its gematria is also 46! In the dream, the cows were mooing because they too are excited that Moshiach ben David is coming to redeem us.

The sheep says 'baaaaa!' In Hebrew, baaaaa is בא and it means 'coming' - who is coming? Moshiach ben David.

It says that the animals will be spiritually elevated and stop preying upon each other when Moshiach comes. As the prophet Isaiah, zs'kl, states, "The wolf will lie down with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the kid goat; the calf, the young lion, and the fattened ox will flock together, and a young child will lead them... The knowledge of G-d will fill the earth as the water covers the sea."

Animals offers us great possibilities in deepening our connections with HKB'H. So next time you hear any animal species barking, chirping, growling, yapping, bellowing, mooing, etc. know that also the animal are all anxiously yearning for Moshiach.
