Pay attention, open up and allow HaShem to speak His Words of Living Torah directly into your mind and heart...

A question; how hard can one push before one is pushed back?

Pushing back, is this a choice or a natural outcome of our own actions.  Science teaches that to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.  If this is true in natural law and the universe, why would it be any less true when applied to human beings?

If one pushes another, is it a choice or a force of nature for the other to push back?

Learn now the ways of Heaven and earth.

Human beings are both heavenly souls and earthly creatures.  We combine a unique dual nature within us.  We act and respond in two ways, one way in accordance to Heaven; one way in accordance to earth.  Both ways are inherent within us; both ways are right and correct, when place in proper balance and harmony.

The laws of nature dictate to us that when we are pushed we are meant to push back.  Yet, when to push and how hard, this is defined not only by our earthly nature but also by our Heavenly nature.  For we are human beings, something higher than mere physical animals.  Natural law does dictate and control us, yet we have a say in that control; we have discretion in applying the Way of Heaven over the ways of the earth.

When it comes time to push back, we have options what to do and how to do it.  Sometimes we follow natural law and push back with equal and opposite force.  Sometimes, we delay pushing back as directed by the Heavenly wisdom.  Sometimes however we must push back with force and vigor, greater and stronger than the provoking initial push against us.

When we push back, we do not do so as an emotional thing.  Pushing must always be what it is, a natural expression of normal behavior.  Only when polarities are in proper balance can there be harmony and thus peace.  One who initiates the push can create either balance or imbalance.  It all depends upon the nature of the push.

Heaven blesses the one who pushes in accordance to the Higher Wisdom.  On the contrary, one here on earth who pushes to forward a human agenda, one in opposition with Heaven sets in motion a course of action which will lead to horrible consequences and ruthless realignment.  One must never tamper with the universal laws of balance and polarity.

In many places today, we have provocative people pushing against natural law in many different ways.  The laws of nature dictate that they themselves are creating the opposition that will eventually face them and ultimately destroy them.  One cannot create imbalance and get away with it for long.  In the end, Heaven does dictate the course of human events. 

When one sees the growth of imbalance, it is wise to remove oneself from the place where balance is to be restored.  Heaven never extends mercy or grace to the one who ignores the warnings of change.

Do you push or do you push back?  One way or another you are on one of these universal sides.  Choose where you wish to stand, embrace your position and be ready to face the consequences of your actions, be they for good or for bad.

You cannot stand in the middle.  Heaven has not arranged for us a place that is a no place.  Deny what you will, your denials are your choice.  The great push is underway.  The great push back is coming.  It is ordained by Heaven and will be directed by the Heavenly hand.  Watch closely now and you will observe a profound exchange of energies.

Shalom, Ariel Bar Tzadok
