Distractions are numerous, yet the most
seductive kind is the distraction of the intellect. This is when one
allows one’s mind to become so busy with thoughts, that one takes no
time to silence the mind from thinking and open one’s heart to Heaven.
Indeed, one can become so “heavenly minded” that one becomes no earthly
good. Unfortunately, this has become a serious problem with certain
type of religious individuals.
Serving Heaven and being religious have
unfortunately become two different things. Some people believe that
because their minds are constantly filled with “heavenly” thoughts that
they are heavenly people. Convinced of their religiosity, all these
“heavenly minded” souls do is just talk and talk about their heavenly
ideas and thus by doing so, let slip by all the proper and necessary
work that Heaven truly requires.
Silence your minds from thinking; stop
your contemplations. You are not destined to figure out that which is
hidden; you will never discover that which is concealed. Know for sure
that the forces of Heaven who conceal a thing know very well how to keep
it hidden from prying eyes. No one will discover or uncover anything.
If Heaven chooses to reveal information to an individual, it will come
about through other than academic acquisition. The more you try to
grasp by yourself, the less and less will you get.
Patience, silence, preparation; these
are the keys to tuning in to the inner Heavenly broadcast. Indeed,
Heaven does speak to us, but not through the cluttered mind. Therefore,
when one allows his mind to be overly academic and to jump from thought
to thought and idea to idea, one cannot slow down enough to hear and
receive the soft silent Voice that speaks the Heavenly truth from beyond
the realms and limits of the intellect.
I look out and see all types of
predictions about the future. People turn to scripture and holy
writings and piece together many ideas and words to form what they
believe is the proper form of the puzzle and thus get the answers to the
questions they contemplate. Yet, human intellect is a limited thing.
All our endeavors are just not enough to see the true great picture as
it is being released from Heaven.
No matter what we learn, there will
always be more that we do not know. No matter how many holy writings we
quote, we cannot make reality and history to unfold in the way we expect
and want it to. Long ago, our wise Sages warned us not to try to
predict the future, for although certain small things can be foreseen,
the greater picture never will be.
Unless, one is given a revelation from
Heaven, the future cannot and will not be known. Revelations cannot
come to the mind of the one who is constantly engrossed in one’s
thoughts and studies. When Heaven tries to communicate with such an
individuals, it receives something akin to a ‘busy signal.” Thus, the
busy mind never realizes that its pursuit of knowledge is exactly what
prohibits it from receiving knowledge. Only one of pure heart and a
silent mind will understand these things.
If you have to think about what it is I
am saying, then you have already missed the point. Slow down, close
your books, and take time to be silent. Call upon Heaven through the
inner openings of your soul. Heaven will hear your call and answer
you. You will learn more in a single moment of Heavenly revelation than
through all the book learning, thinking and talking. Stop thinking so
much, stop trying to analyze and understand. Just let it be.
Heaven is in charge, not you. You will
receive what you are meant to receive when you are ready for it. Heaven
is waiting for you to be ready, ready to receive. In order to receive,
you must first stop yourself from grabbing and taking. Silence, be
still, and call upon Heaven. In the silence will be heard the Voice.
If you are ready to receive then you
will. This is how Kabbalah is learned. This is how the future is
known. This is how the concealed is revealed. This is how the unseen
Still cannot figure it out, can you?
Still trying to take it all in and analyze and comprehend? I guess the
process of redemption will take longer for some than for others.
