As ‘lockdown’ draws closer, I’m feeling that there is nowhere left to run.

Since Pesach, I’ve basically been trying to keep one step ahead of the Corona Fascists, and all their nefarious schemes for using COVID-1984 to impose their controlling agenda on the world.

I hate being controlled.

I hate being policed.

I hate having my basic freedom to walk places, to breathe fresh air, to visit holy sites, to get out in nature, to meet up with friends, to pray – curtailed.

And I’m also pretty scared about the motives and agenda behind all this ‘control’ and false COVID-1984 narrative, which makes it even harder to deal with the day-to-day Corona Fascism.

For the last few months, I’ve been trying to run away from the ‘control’ anyway I can.

But here in Uman, it’s finally starting to dawn on me that I am running out of places to run to.

====

The plan today was to try to take a cab to Rabbi Natan’s grave in Breslov, and then to carry on to the Baal Shem Tov in Medzhiboz.

Yesterday, I walked out on Pushkina to try to find a cab. Usually, there are 5 people every square foot, asking me if I want to exchange money or take a cab. Yesterday, there was no-one. Maybe, it had something to do with the group of 4 masked Ukrainian police who have now taken up permanent position on the corner of Pushkina, where you head down into the tomb.

They just strike me (and everyone else…) as menacing, so we’re all kind of staying away from them.

A lot of the taxi guys are working in the black economy, off the books, so I guess they are also being scared off.

Point being, I couldn’t find a cab to order for Medzhiboz.

====

This morning, I woke up early to see if I could arrange a cab now instead.

But I found myself kind of stuck to my sheets with a sick feeling that it took me a while to pin down as ‘fear’. I’m scared to leave Uman. I’m scared to leave the sanctuary of Rebbe Nachman. Things are so changeable, I don’t want to find myself somehow trapped outside of Uman (even though we have a rental here now through Rosh Hashana), or having to deal with the Ukrainian authorities again.

So, it looks like I’m not risking going to the BESHT after all.

====

After some consideration of why I’m feeling so stressed all the time, I came to realise how much pressure I feel to keep things ‘working’ in my family unit.

Thanks to Corona Fascism, I have spent the last 6-7 months in close proximity to my husband and children, with very little break. Even though as soon as the last lockdown was lifted, I went all over the country to maximise the ‘freedom’ I had – and encouraged my kids to do the same – the idea of being ‘stuck’ with my family, with no escape, is still very hard for me.

====

I knew they were going to lockdown in Israel before Rosh Hashana. 

They were threatening that for months, it’s always been part of “the plan”.

And at least in part, the knowledge of that encouraged me to run off here, to Uman, although clearly there was also a big aspect of being ‘pulled’ to Rabbenu, too.

Today, I’m realising that I can’t keep running away from the difficult feelings all this COVID-1984 stuff is bringing up in me.

The last few months, I’ve run away into cooking, I’ve run away into nature, I’ve run away into turning out one book after another and work, I’ve run away into gardening – a million different things.

And here in Uman, it’s finally dawning on me that I can’t keep running. I’m exhausted. I’m tired. I’m overwhelmed. I’m lost.

====

Underneath all this, is the knowledge that I find ‘home’ a very difficult place.

‘Home’ for me was always a place I wanted to escape from, and while I’ve done a lot of work on myself since I was married to transform that tendency, so my kids wouldn’t end up as psychos, I can see there is still a stubborn nub of fear of being at home, and of being with my family, that has resisted all efforts to shift it.

At the end of the day, God is the One who is running this COVID-1984 show.

God is the One who is putting me – and all of us – under this tremendous pressure. God has an outcome He is trying to achieve, and end in mind, a goal to reach.

For me, it’s finally making my peace with just ‘being’. ‘Being’ at home. ‘Being’ with my family. Not constantly running to the next distraction, the next escape hatch.

That’s very hard for me to accept.

It’s very hard for me to handle.

But increasingly, I’m seeing that the only way I can really get away from this ‘fear of being’ is to stop running away, and to turn around and face it down.

Holding God’s hand.

It’s not against COVID-1984, or against corrupt government officials.

The real war to be fought here is against our own bad middot, and especially our tavot mamon.

Ukrainians are notoriously stingy. Like, notoriously. We have been charged by a taxi for wanting to turn the airconditioning on, we’ve been charged extra for towels, extra for toilet paper, extra for taking especially big gulps of air (ok, that last one is a lie.)

Point is, money is definitely what makes the world go round in the Ukraine.

====

The landlord we’re renting from here in Uman is actually OK, as Ukrainians go, and has shown me a few kindnesses in the two days I’ve been here. He gave me pegs (for free…) He gave me bin bags (for free…) – but he was careful to tell me that I could only throw the bin bag out when it was totally full. And he’s also careful to let me know when the toilet flush gets stuck, so I don’t waste a grivna of his money on that trickle of unnecessary water.

A grivna is worth approximately half a cent.

And Ukraine is totally awash in water – it’s literally everywhere.

I’m not like this at all, so living in close quarters with such a stingy person is proving quite eye-opening. Not least, it’s showing me how very stressful it is, to have people like that around, always looking over your shoulder and critiquing your spending, like an in-house accountant. And it’s also showing me how much unnecessary pain and suffering all this stinginess and tavot mamon (lust for money) is bringing to the world.

====

This morning, our landlord finally managed to rent out the unit next to us.

The group of 8 Israelis who rented it got a really good deal, because our landlord is scared no-one else is coming out to Uman this year.

(He’s wrong, but he doesn’t know that yet.)

Usually, beds like his, in this location, in a reasonable apartment like his, go for at least $500 a head. This morning, he let the group have it for $180 a head, but he made the same condition that he made with us, that no-one else could come round to flat unless they were renting a bed in it.

I understand that condition.

I know it’s coming partially from a stingy place, but I also understand that the temptation to sneak another person in to sleep on a spare bed without paying may prove too strong for many people.

Long story short, the group invited two more people to come eat with them just now who aren’t renting there – and the landlord showed up, and asked them to pay more money.

They refused.

And then, instead of working it out like grown ups, the group of 8 decided to stand on principle and to leave. 

It was 6.30 at night, and their chances of finding somewhere else to sleep or rent right now are pretty small.

And for what? A few extra dollars? Whatever they think they saved, it’s going to cost them way more in hassle and effort.

====

This morning in the kever, I opened Rebbe Nachman’s Tales to the story of the Master of Prayer, where the Master of Prayer was taking the people of the Land of Money to task, for devoting their whole life to money.

Retarded people!!! Don’t you understand money is a tool, it’s a means to an end, not an end in and of itself!!! Why waste so much effort, so much energy, trying to conserve a couple of bucks, or trying to squeeze a couple more bucks out of other people?!?

(Clearly, I’m paraphrasing what Rabbenu said here.)

I have seen so many people sour relationships and cause massive emotional damage to others, especially their children and spouses, by making their money, their bank account, their principal priority in life.

Personally, I am at a stage that I literally can’t stand all this stingy ayin hara over money any more.

I can’t stand the people who criticise others for spending a little bit more on their groceries; or for giving some charity to askers who can’t be proven to be 100000% ‘kosher’; or who make it a big ‘mitzvah’ to try to screw prices down so hard (or inflate them so high) it literally hurts.

I can’t stand those people.

====

Recently, I read a prayer from the Rav, Rabbi Berland, which set up a clear correlation between the trait of stinginess and the ayin hara. People who have the first invariably have big problems with the second.

And that’s the whole war that we’re fighting right now, to convince all those people living n the Land of Money to finally give up on their false beliefs and destructive ideology.

Money is for spending.

Money is for sharing.

Money is for building the world, not boosting your investment portfolio.

Rebbe Nachman teaches very clearly that before Moshiach comes, anyone who has a lot of money will be totally shamed and disgusted by the money itself.

All those millionaires and billionaires, who could have helped so many people, done so many kindnesses, but preferred to continue to suck everyone else dry, and to take bribes, and to promote the agenda of evil in the world, just so they can have a few more zeros in the bank.

And what about us?

How much are we also stuck in the Land of Money, putting our savings ahead of helping our kids, or inviting guests for Shabbat, or even buying ourselves a new frock for the chag?

====

Money as we know it is about to disappear.

That’s why the tests involving money are becoming so sharp.

And that’s why God is checking us so carefully right now, to see how caught up in the lust for money, tavot maimon, we really are.

The more of us can kick free from it, and start to trust more in God and less in our savings and ability to manage money, the easier this next stage will go.

So, I give us all a blessing that we will replace our stingy, ayin hara with a generous ayin tova. That we will want to give to others generously. That we won’t worry about spending what we need to, in order to live and to celebrate Jewish holidays, and give ourselves and our families what we really need.

Because when enough of us get out of the Land of Money, Moshiach will come.

How do we deal with ‘reality’ without going nuts?

On the last post, one of the commentators, Alizah, asked this:

Rivka, how do we read this without going nuts? Reminds me of something that says at the end the yetzer hara will appear like a mountain to some people and to others like something small.

If we follow your blog it’s enormous. We want to cry.

====

It’s a very good question.

On Shabbat, we were at friends for Friday night, and the conversation turned (as it inevitably does…) to the whole Corona stress we’re all under.

I couldn’t help it.

I tried to explain what’s really going on with all this – how it’s all just part of a deeper ‘depopulation / eugenics’ agenda that’s been in the works for over a century, already – and my host looked at me with a pitying smile.

I’d outed myself as that most lowly of creatures, a conspiracy theorist.

The argument raged on for around two hours, and I realised that the more hard facts and solid information I was throwing at the other people around the table, the more their defenses got entrenched, and the more pointless the whole discussion became.

====

At one point, my host turned to me and said:

Why do we need to know all this stuff? What can we do anyway? Why do you keep looking at all the ‘bad’? We can’t make any difference, and I don’t want to be kept up at night worrying about all this stuff.

The answer to that is really the answer to a lot of other big questions. Here’s what I told him:

====

Truth is God’s seal.

The more ‘truth’ we acknowledge and let in to our lives, the closer it brings us to God.

The more we see how broken this world really is, the more we will start to really yearn and beg for something to change. The more we will yearn and beg for geula, for Moshiach.

The more sincere teshuva we will make.

The more minutes and hours of heartfelt prayer we will engage in, asking God to fix things and to right everything that is so very wrong.

Knowing the truth gives us the motivation we need to really turn to Hashem, and come back to Him wholeheartedly.

====

I guess what I was really trying to tell my host is that I’m not buying into all the yeoush and despairing attitude that says we are nothing, and we can’t do anything to change all this, so why even bother trying to grapple with it?!

The Jewish soul is infinite.

It’s a part of Hashem.

Sure, me by myself I’m totally and utterly nothing and nobody.

I can’t take on the Rockefellers, or Bill Gates, or the corrupt State of Israel.

I know that.

But here’s what I can do:

I can go and pour out my heart to Hashem about all the ‘bad’ that’s going on in the world, and beg Him to fix it, and to fill the world with His light and the light of the true tzaddikim, and to get things to finally all turn around.

That’s all I can really do – but it’s everything.

====

If we believe in the power of prayer, if we believe in the power of the Jewish soul to stir Hashem’s mercy and compassion, if we believe in miracles, and that God is the only force that really exists in the world, then uncovering the ‘bad’ doesn’t scare us and overwhelm us and cause us to go into denial in quite the same way.

It might anger us, upset us, shock us – but it also motivates us to PRAY.

To turn to Hashem and to PRAY.

And that is the true strength and the true power of the Jewish soul, and it’s a power that every single one of us can access and activate.

====

When the Nazis were rising to power before World War II, so many people stuck their head in the sand and whistled.

God won’t let it happen, they said. I trust that God will continue to look after us, they said. I can’t do anything about this ‘bad’ stuff, so I’m just going to pretend it’s not happening, they said.

That was totally the wrong approach.

Rebbe Nachman spoke about the correct way to deal with harsh decrees:

He said:

“[E]ach person must say that the world was only created for his sake, and [the Rebbe said] how every person must endeavor to make up the deficiencies of the world, praying on its behalf – i.e. before the decree [actually materialises].

He also said the following:

“That year [1803] the Rebbe was very preoccupied with the Cantonist Decrees. He was extremely worried about the situation and said they were not an idle threat. He disagreed strongly with the people who were saying nothing would come of it in the end, for how could God do such a thing to the Jewish people?!

The Rebbe said several times that this was nonsense.

We find many occasions when harsh decrees did materialise.

The Rebbe spoke about this a great deal and said that the rumored decrees had to be taken with the utmost seriousness and not be treated lightly. We had to pray and cry out to God, and to be and beseech Him in the hope that He would hear us and annul them….

If only people had listened to his call to set the earth shaking with prayers and appeals to God, these decrees would have been nullified completely!”

(Tzaddik, Conversations Relating to His Lessons, page 132)

====

God forbid, I’m not uncovering this stuff to get anyone down, or add to the despair.

Quite the opposite.

I believe – so strongly! – in the power of prayer.

I believe in the power of a Jewish soul to turn everything around when they partner with Hashem and pray their hearts out.

This stuff scares you? It overwhelms you? It upsets you?

Go talk to God about it, and beg Him to clean up this mess!!!

When you do that, you change everything, literally.

The ‘weapon’ of Jacob is our prayer.

And I’m urging every single one of you to take a deep breath, and go pick it up.

Required reading for anyone who wants to really understand what’s going on, here.

If there was any ‘justice’ in the world, then journalist James Corbett, of the Corbettreport.com website, would get about a thousand Pullitzer prizes for his sterling work. At least.

But there isn’t, so he won’t.

In the meantime, one of my friends (thank you Chana!) ‘happened’ to mention this episode to me, without knowing that I’ve spent the last month trying to figure out how the State of Israel is connected to the Hedjaz railway, and the Armenian genocide that occurred around World War I.

This episode is bringing A LOT of the pieces together, and it’s required viewing (or if you prefer, you can read the show notes HERE) – to understand what is really going on here, and who is behind all the mess the world is currently in, most recently with this COVID-19 plandemic.

====

====

UPDATE: HERE’S PART II:

====

Of course, the State of Israel has a very special role to play in all this ongoing external control of the Middle East (i.e. the oil and gas fields that were discovered here).

As we continue to see in our day, whenever there is some sort of externally manufactured ‘war’ or civil unrest going on in the Middle East, that gives the oligarchy-controlled politicians the cover they need to wade in as ‘peace keepers’, to take over the natural assets of the country under guise of ‘protecting them’.

The US has done that in Iraq.

Apparently, it’s just done that in Syria, too.

And also in Libya.

And Corbett explains how Rockefeller (Standard Oil) protege Henry Kissinger helped to engineer the Yom Kippur war in 1973, to helpfully ‘spike’ oil prices for his masters.

====

Where we all keep going wrong is that we’re seeing this as ‘nation states’ against each other.

That’s rubbish.

There are oligarchs, billionaires, royalty, bankers at the top of the pyramid, and those people literally redrew the map of the world around World War I, to better serve their economic interests, and to create nations and political systems that would serve them, and their socio-economic aims.

And the State of Israel was one of those ‘created’ countries.

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find a very interesting Wikipedia article about the McMahon-Hussein agreement of 1915, where the British agreed to create ‘nation states’ for the Arabs under Turkish rule, if they would rise up and revolt against the Turkish empire.

Of course, they double-crossed the Arabs, published the Balfour Declaration in 1917 instead – notably, after the Rothschild family intervened – and the rest is history.

====

The Paris Peace Conference between the allies to agree territorial divisions after the war was held in 1919. The correspondence was primarily relevant to the regions that were to become Palestine, Transjordan, Lebanon, Syria, Mesopotamia (Iraq) and the Arabian Peninsula. At the conference, Prince Faisal, speaking on behalf of King Hussein, did not ask for immediate Arab independence but recommended an Arab state under a British mandate.[57]

… [In] April 1920 the San Remo conference was hastily convened in response to Faisal’s declaration. At the conference, the Allied Supreme Council granted the mandates for Palestine and Mesopotamia to Britain, and those for Syria and Lebanon to France.[59]

The United Kingdom and France agreed to recognize the provisional independence of Syria and Mesopotamia. Provisional recognition of Palestinian independence was not mentioned. France had decided to govern Syria directly and took action to enforce the French Mandate of Syria before the terms had been accepted by the Council of the League of Nations.

The French intervened militarily at the Battle of Maysalun in June 1920, deposing the indigenous Arab government and removing King Faisal from Damascus in August 1920.[60]

In Palestine, the United Kingdom appointed a High Commissioner and established their own mandatory regime….

….At the same conference, US Secretary of State Robert Lansing had asked Dr. Weizmann if the Jewish national home meant the establishment of an autonomous Jewish government. The head of the Zionist delegation had replied in the negative.[o]

Lansing was a member of the American Commission to Negotiate Peace at Paris in 1919; he said the system of mandates was a device created by the Great Powers to conceal their division of the spoils of war under the colour of international law.

====

What’s really interesting, is that Chaim Weizmann is on record as not wanting an autonomous Jewish Government in Israel:

Weizmann’s reply to Lansing was as follows: “Dr. Weizmann replied in the negative. The Zionist organisation did not want an autonomous Jewish Government, but merely to establish in Palestine, under a mandatory Power, an administration, not necessarily Jewish, which would render it possible to send into Palestine 70 to 80,000 Jews annually.

The Association would require to have permission at the same time to build Jewish schools, where Hebrew would be taught, and in that way to build up gradually a nationality which would be as Jewish as the French nation was French and the British nation British. Later on, when the Jews formed the large majority, they would be ripe to establish such a Government as would answer to the state of the development of the country and to their ideals”[66]

====

I always found Weizmann’s and Ben Gurion’s stance of NOT wanting to create an independent Jewish country very strange, but now I think this is the answer to that conundrum.

The State of Israel was ‘created’ by the French Rothschilds to ensure they would have their people on the ground, to keep the oil flowing from the Middle East, where it could be barrelled and shipped off from Haifa Port. It was never intended to be a true home for the Jewish people – and especially not the religious, ‘primitive’ type of Jewish people.

This from the corbettreport:

====

In 1891, the Rothschilds contracted with M. Samuel & Co., a Far East shipping company headquartered in London and run by Marcus Samuel, to do what had never been done before: ship their Nobel-supplied Caspian oil through the Suez Canal to East Asian markets.

The project was immense; it involved not only sophisticated engineering to construct the first oil tankers to be approved by the Suez Canal Company, but the strictest secrecy. If word of the endeavour was to get back to Rockefeller through his international intelligence network, it would risk bringing the wrath of Standard Oil, which could afford to cut rates and squeeze them out of the market.

In the end they succeeded, and the first bulk tanker, the Murex, sailed through the Suez Canal in 1892 en route to Thailand.

In 1897, M. Samuel & Co. became The Shell Transport and Trading Company. Realizing that reliance on the Rothschild/Nobel Caspian oil left the company vulnerable to supply shocks, Shell began to look to the Far East for other sources of oil.

In Borneo they ran up against Royal Dutch Petroleum, established in The Hague in 1890 with the support of King William III of the Netherlands to develop oil deposits in the Dutch East Indies. The two companies, fearing competition from Standard Oil, merged in 1903 into the Asiatic Petroleum Company, jointly owned with the French Rothschilds, and in 1907 become Royal Dutch Shell.

====

You can read about the ‘Valley Railway’ that snaked through the Middle East down to the port of Haifa, here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jezreel_Valley_railway

And then, you can read about the Kirkuk-Haifa oil pipeline that was being operated by the British between 1935-1948 – until Begin’s lot finally pressured the Brits enough to leave Israel – here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirkuk%E2%80%93Haifa_oil_pipeline

“The pipeline and the Haifa refineries were considered strategically important by the British Government, and indeed provided much of the fuel needs of the British and American forces in the Mediterranean during World War II.”

====

I have to tell you, so many ‘mysteries’ are starting to resolve, at least for me.

The State of Israel really was a ‘colonial’ project, conceived of as a way to leverage Western oligarchical control of an area rich in oil and minerals.

Just as the House of Saud was ‘created’, and the Jordanian royal family was ‘created’, and the Syrians ended up being ruled by the tiny minority Alawites, the oligarchs supported those Jews for governance who were a fanatically secular ‘minority’ who the majority of Jews had nothing in common with (at that point….)

These Jews used the pretext of World War I to grab the haluka and other charitable payments for themselves, that were coming in from the diaspora to support the Old Yishuv – the frum Jews who saw it as a mitzvah to settle the land – and by so doing, effectively helped to starve their religious ‘opposition’ in the land of Israel to death. Literally.

====

The population of Eretz Yisrael shrank from 85,000 to 55,000 over World War I.

Most of the people lost at that time came from the religious community. Before World War I, religious Jews were a large majority in the Holy Land, but the secular Jews managed to ‘leapfrog’ over them, by the end of the war, and to push right to the head of the queue for becoming the defacto ‘leaders’ of what became the State of Israel.

If you want to learn more about what happened here, I recommend reading the biography of Rabbi Chaim Sonnenfeld, and also Between Redemption and Revival: The Jewish Yishuv in Jerusalem.

====

So much more to say, as always.

Where the Armenian genocide fits into all this, I’m still trying to figure out.

But it’s growing clearer that everything that’s going on with the Port of Beirut, and with the oil in the Golan Heights, and with the US pressuring Israel to not let the Chinese build the new hi-tech port in Haifa, and even with all the ‘manufactured wars’ going on all around us, this is all some sort of re-hash of what was happening 100 years ago.

It’s unfinished business, part of the oil oligarchs’ continuing manipulation of the world’s little people, to keep us at each other’s throats while a handful of billionaires continue to plunder the world of its natural resources and try to play God.

But not for much longer.

Dear readers, I’m finding it hard to write at the moment.

I will pick it back up when God gives me koach again, but in the meantime, here are a few things that I recommend you read yourselves, because going forward they are describing things that will become more and more obvious, as this process grinds painfully on towards geula.

====

#1: Read up about the Enabling Act, pushed through the Reichstag by Hitler, in 1933:

The Enabling Act allowed the Reich government to issue laws without the consent of Germany’s parliament, laying the foundation for the complete Nazification of German society. The law was passed on March 23, 1933, and published the following day.
That’s relevant to Israel, because Netanyahu did the same thing with his Coronavirus ‘law’ two weeks ago, and that law (aka Netanyahu’s Enabling Act) means that he and his group of corrupt cronies in the Knesset, the Mossad, and abroad have effectively taken over Israel’s democractic process – totally legally.
====

#2: Read this excellent article about what was really going down in Beirut Port last week:

UPDATE:

Read the article for free at THIS link, instead.
====
Netanyahu and Yossi Cohen’s Mossad are very tight.
Saudi Arabia and Israel’s Mossad are very tight.
Saudi Arabia and Trump (NSA) are very tight.
In the part of the picture that has been obscured, I suddenly realised that France is one of the rare European countries that has no monarchy.
USA and France have traditionally also been very tight – the French Republic ‘gifted’ The State of Liberty to the USA, for reasons that I still don’t really understand…

That is who is ‘fighting’ one corner of the battle to get their hands on as many of the earth’s natural resources and real estate as possible.

====

There is at least one other corner.

That corner contains European monarchies, MI6, the Vatican, and possibly, Qatar and China.

Or, Qatar and China may be doing their own thing and kind of trying to play both sides off against the middle.

I don’t know yet.

This ‘corner’ is aligned to what we would think of as the ‘left’ in Israel, but of course really all these labels are pointless.

All our politicians are puppets, self-aggrandisers (at best…) who want big salaries and big reputations.

Where Russia fits into all this, I don’t know.

Where Iran and North Korea fits into all this, I also don’t know.

But I have a feeling it’s going to start falling into place soon.

====

Ah, two more pieces of pertinent info:

Shortly before the civil war in Syria began, Assad said ‘no’ to the USA’s idea of running an oil pipeline through it’s territory, from Saudi Arabia.

Also, Israel was pressured by the USA to halt the Chinese building their new ‘super-port’ in Haifa, which was meant to be open in 2021. It’s very hard to find any information online about what is now happening with that ‘super-port’.

This is the best article out there, so far, but it doesn’t mention that the US stopped the project with all their pressure:

https://en.globes.co.il/en/article-want-to-know-all-about-haifas-new-port-try-china-1001333527

But of course, with Beirut’s port now totally demolished, that makes Haifa even more important.

Especially if there is a new oil pipeline in the offing, to move petroleum down via Syria.

TBC

====

UPDATE #2:

This is former US General Wesley Clark, laying out – in just 2 minutes – how the US State Department wrote a memo detailing how they were going to ‘overthrow’ the following governments in the Middle East, immediately after 9/11:

“This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.”

(Shmirat eynayim friendly)

====

Clark’s most telling comment comes at the end, when he explains how if there was no petroleum in the Middle East, no-one would be ‘intervening’ here….

So now you tell me, what came first: civil unrest, balkanisation and war fomented by petroleum-hungry Europeans and Americans, looking for a way to keep control over the black stuff, or Saddam Hussein and Ayatalloh Khomenei?

That is the question.

====

UPDATE #3:

So weird, that this ‘smoking gun’ speech – where Israel’s Ambassador to the UN clearly identifies Beirut Port as the ‘Port of Hezbollah’, barely a week before it was totally smoked, seems to be almost uniformly ‘whitewashed’ out of the coverage of what happened in Lebanon.

Here’s the link, and here’s a little of what the Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon said – get it quick, before it’s scrubbed:

“Israel’s U.N. ambassador, Danny Danon, said in a speech on Tuesday that in 2018 and 2019, “Israel found that Iran and the Quds Force have begun to advance the exploitation of the civilian maritime channels, and specifically the Port of Beirut.

“The Port of Beirut is now the Port of Hezbollah,” Danon told the 15-member Security Council. Israel sees Hezbollah, against which it fought a month-long war in 2006, as the biggest threat on its borders.

Lebanese U.N. Ambassador Amal Mudallali said the Lebanese saw such accusations as “direct threats on their peace and civilian infrastructure.” Hezbollah is part of Lebanon’s coalition government.

“If he is using them to prepare the ground and the international community for an attack on Lebanon’s civilian ports and airport and its infrastructure — as they did in 2006 — this council should not stay silent,” she said.”

Mum, I’m worried about you. You’re always forgetting what I told you. I think you have alzheimers….

====

Over the last few months, my youngest daughter has been making this statement a few times a month. It annoys the heck out of me, not because I’m in ‘alzheimers denial’, but because I keep explaining to her that when people are totally stressed out of their skulls and preoccupied, it’s hard to remember anything.

Stress damages the brain, at least temporarily, and we all know just how stressed we’ve all been, in a billion different ways, the last year.

So yesterday, she started up with that again and I glared at her, and started to feel a bit upset and angry that she was apparently deliberately winding me up again…when I was in the middle of trying to get another one of the Rav’s books done and sent out…and in the middle of trying to figure out how Beirut’s port being exploded is somehow connected to the new Haifa port being built by the Chinese (completed 2021…) and the shadowy new ‘deal’ the US has apparently just struck for Syria’s oil (CO-IN-CID-ENT-AL-LY on the same day the explosion happened in Beirut….)

…and trying to wash up and do a few other things to keep the house ticking over….

When it struck me what the real problem was.

I haven’t been giving this kid enough time and headspace.

====

She’s a good kid, really lovely in so many ways.

But she’s like her dad, inasmuch as that part of the gene pool has a tendency to give over BIG things in very small ways. I have the opposite tendency. I exaggerate for effect, I make a point with pyrotechnic prose – and so, I have been totally missing all these ‘big’ things she’s been telling me in her gentle way, as they haven’t come wrapped in melodrama.

That means she tells me something, and I don’t really pay much attention to it, because it’s not exciting enough to compete with the corrupt Mossad, and what I need to get from Mahane Yehuda for Shabbat, and a million other things.

So then, I’ll ask her again: where are you going tonight? Are you here for Shabbat? You said you do want pasta for supper, or not?

And then she’ll hit me with the ‘alzheimers’ speech, because in a way she’s right that I am forgetting about things. But really, just one thing: her.

====

As usual, I didn’t feel so fabulous, emotionally, after I realized what was going on.

I had a few minutes of that raw despair that only a parent can feel. You know what I’m talking about. We want so much to be everything our children need us to be, to give them what they require to grow up feeling loved and emotionally-healthy and connected to God and their souls – and yet sometimes, we just can’t do it.

God, I have no energy for this…

Rivka, are you saying you have no energy for her?

(God always goes right for the jugular.)

That brought me up sharp.

Of course I have energy for her! My kids and my husband are my #1 priority!!!

(In theory.)

====

In practice, the last few months my kids and my husband have fallen far down the totem pole again, overlooked in the midst of a million books being written, and a million trips ‘out’, and a million hours researching what’s really going on in the world.

====

I turned off my computer.

I went upstairs to where my kid had retreated to her room, and I tried to start a conversation.

I’m sorry I haven’t been giving you enough attention recently. What can I do for you, that would be nice for you? Can I take you somewhere? Do you want to go shopping?

Ima, why do you feel like you always have to just buy something or do something?!

She asked me with that particularly infuriating arched teenaged-eyebrow of disdain.

(Upset teenagers always go right for the jugular.)

====

I fought down the knee-jerk response to try to hurt back, swallowed a couple of times, then ‘fessed up.

Sometimes, kid, I feel like I don’t know what I’m doing. Sometimes, it’s very hard for me to just ‘be’. So I retreat into doing stuff and going places, because that’s often easier than just sitting here trying to be ‘real’ with you.

What I really wanted to tell her is that every time I wash her clothes, make her food, wash out the cereal bowl that was left for a day in the heat so the grains could all harden onto it like some sort of ceramic decoration – without having a go at her for doing that –  that’s a small declaration of love.

Sometimes, those small declarations of love are all I can manage, because despite the fact that I’m 46, and officially ‘old’, I also feel lost and overwhelmed a lot of the time.

Even when there is no ‘COVID-19’ in the picture.

====

Ima, do you want a hug? She suddenly asked me, out of nowhere.

Of course I want a hug…

And just like that, the connection was re-established.

====

The rest of yesterday afternoon, we just hung out talking about the small stuff that looms very big in a teenager’s life, and I made a mental note to boost spending time with my teens well up my ‘to do’ list from here on in.

I have one more book to do for the Rav left on my list, before I take a proper sabbatical: One in a Generation #3.

It’s a huge amount of work in every sense of the word.

When that teen likes to really go for the killer blow, she’ll tell me in full-blown teenage troofer mode:

You care more about Rav Berland than you do about me.

In her worldview, she sees me spending hours, weeks, months and years on his books etc, for free, and she sees how engrossed I am in my writing, often to the exclusion of her. What can I tell her?

Those books are changing the whole picture….they are sweetening everything…they are helping Moshiach to come the sweet way…

She is a hardcore teenage troofer.

The more I try to explain about the Rav, the more she tells me to my face that I’m just a card-carrying cult-member-lunatic. I get zero kudos for doing all this stuff. That kid just thinks its conclusive proof I’m a retarded frier-ite.

====

Doing all the stuff for the Rav is so important.

But even so, my kids and husband still have to come first.

It’s a tough balance to strike, it’s a very narrow bridge to walk on.

And I got reminded again yesterday, that being a loving parent is sometimes the most challenging job in the world.

It’s hard to back down, when we find ourselves on the wrong side of an argument.

It’s embarrassing, often excrutiatingly so, and if we were raised in homes where mistakes were not tolerated, and personal attacks occurred whenever we were ‘wrong’, then admitting we maybe made a mistake when we are adults can get really, really hard.

But if we just relate to all this ‘COVID-19’ stuff as the ‘end’, spiritually, and not just the means to a different type of end, we are missing the whole point.

Who is arranging all this COVID-19 pantomime, from behind the scenes?

God.

Why is He doing that?

There are lots of potential answers to that question, but one very big one is that God is currently putting all of us through a massive character test.

This whole thing boils down to a test of middot.

====

Middot in Hebrew literally means ‘measures’. The ‘measure’ of a human being is how they treat other people, how morally they behave, how good their character traits really are.

And right now, we are in the advanced PhD masterclass of middot testing, where it’s impossible to fake, or cheat, or bluster your way through the process.

Last week, someone sent me a shiur by a popular Rabbi that was buying the COVID-19 scare-story, replete with ‘wear your mask, or you’re evil!!!!’ messaging.

The person who sent me that shiur was probably quite surprised to hear that message coming from that person. I wasn’t. I’ve had dealings with that guy for years and years and years, and while he talks a good game, when push came to shove his middot and his emuna were nowhere near where he likes to pretend they are.

So, COVID-19 is just bringing all his hidden lack of emuna, and his hidden addiction to secular news, and his hidden fallen fears up to the surface.

And it’s doing it across the board.

====

Same thing applies to why we are all being ‘locked down’ with our immediate family members.

I guarantee that for every person who has realised just how much they really do love and miss ‘Bubby and Safdie’, there are at three who are starting to own the uncomfortable truth that they are actually way happier having more space away from certain, controlling, family members.

COVID-19 is cutting through all the pretend good manners, all the socialized conditioning, and is laying bare what is really underneath.

Same goes for our kids.

You can’t spend approaching 6 months (!) under this type of mega-stress, day in, day out, and keep up any sort of pretence within your immediate family unit.

Either you really do have patience, or you don’t.

Either you really do have emuna and a strong belief that God is running the world, or you don’t.

Either your interactions are more about giving to others, or they are more about taking for yourself.

And at this point in the process, all these measures of our true character, all these middot are starting to be very clearly recognisable.

And for a lot of people, it’s pretty shocking.

====

Baruch Hashem, I’ve known for years that I have a lot of fear, and a very short temper, and that I can also get very controlling when feeling ‘stressed’.

So Baruch Hashem, I’ve been working on these issues – and more! – for years and years and years, to try to tackle them and make life livable for the people around me.

Naturally speaking, I have no patience. And I have no tolerance. And I can get wound up very tight, very fast.

But unnaturally, because I’ve been doing an hour of hitbodedut every day for over a decade now, God has been helping me to get a grip on all these bad middot, and to start to defuse them.

Baruch Hashem!

Because if He hadn’t, there would probably be blood on the floor of the Levy household by now.

(BTW, if you want a shortcut to defusing your anger, the Rav wrote an excellent short booklet with some information and prayers on the subject, that I’ve now gone through twice, and each time it’s really helped me to get a grip on my anger again. You can pick that up, very cheaply, HERE.)

====

That’s also what all the trips to the kivrei tzaddikim is about, and all the visits to Rebbe Nachman’s grave in Uman.

The whole thing, really, is just about getting a grip on my bad middot, so that the real me, my holy soul, can start to shine out in the midst of all that murk.

And that’s really the whole point of this COVID-19 manufactured crisis.

Whether we believe in masks or not, believe in vaccines or not, believe that Trump is the ‘Edomite messiah’ or not (‘scuse me while I snort into my cup of tea) – this whole thing really just boils down to how strong our relationship to God really is (aka ‘the test of emuna’), and how we treat other people (aka ‘the test of good middot’).

====

Today, whilst waiting in the line outside the bakery, I bumped into one of my old good friends from University.

We fell out of contact for 20 years, and while I’ve seen here once of twice around the streets of Jerusalem, it’s only ever a two minute chat these days, and that’s not enough to break the ice again.

But, it’s better than nothing.

So when I spotted her, I went over to where she was standing, with her mask under her chin, to say hello. As I approached, she pulled her mask up over her nose (mine was still under my chin).

Don’t do that just for me! I told her.

I don’t believe in all that stuff!

“I do.” She replied.

And then, we started having a big argument about all the ‘studies’ that show it helps other people radically, and she told me there are no doctors out there who are saying that it’s not necessary!!!

It’s a test of middot.

Once I understood that my poor friend has totally bought into all the lies being pumped out by the powers-that-be and the media, and that I would only embarrass and upset her, if I continued to throw ‘uncomfortable facts’ in her direction, I decided to keep my mouth shut and change the subject.

That’s what I mean, about trying to figure out the real, underlying ‘tests’ going on here. I will debunk things on my blog until I’m blue in the face, and my readers can take it or leave it.

But in my interactions with others, I have to tone myself down, because that is what God really wants.

He doesn’t me being ‘right’, He wants me being humble. And He doesn’t want me winning the argument at any price, He wants me to be reaching out to others, and trying to stay connected to them – achdut – even though sometimes I have to twist myself into 50 pretzels, in order to do that.

It’s hard work.

And I can’t always do it.

But I know, that’s what God wants.

====

Back in THIS POST, I set out the timeline for the 9 months when Moshiach is here, but hidden, and where the Nation of Israel is under foreign rule, that’s referred to in both the Zohar (see HERE) and also in the Child’s Prophecy (see HERE).

The process started February 9, 2020, when the Rav was imprisoned.

====

February 9 – May 9th,2020 = The first trimester.

That’s when Coronavirus panic was at its height, and here in Israel we were severely locked down for around 10 weeks.

That corresponds to the first few months of pregnancy where everything has changed, internally, and your hormones are totally whacked, and you’re puking up, or sleeping, or feeling just generally strange and out of it – but externally, no-one can even tell there is a baby in the making.

====

May 10 – August 9th, 2020 = The second trimester.

That’s when things have usually ‘settled down’ into some form of weird almost normal.

Yes, it’s become clearer that there is a baby on the way, but for most people the puking has stopped, their energy has returned, and they are pretty much just getting on with regular life.

This corresponded to the last 3 months when ‘pseudo normal’ life returned here in Israel, and things mostly opened up again, albeit with masks, coronafascist police, and worrying tyrannical tendencies about using technology to track everyone, and to force everyone to have a ‘vaccine’.

So strange, and not ‘relaxed’, but still a version of ‘life as normal’.

====

August 10th – November 9th, 2020 = The third, and final trimester.

In case you aren’t aware, the freemason dictator-in-waiting, Binyamin Netanyahu, managed to pass a piece of legislation two days ago which means that he can abrogate the entire Knesset, and the entire political process of ministerial oversight, to push the ‘lockdown’ button anytime he wants:

This from the Times of Israel:

The legislation allows the cabinet to set restrictions on the public, with the Knesset given just 24 hours to approve or reject the regulations before they take effect automatically. In addition, it includes a clause that allows the cabinet to bypass the Knesset and immediately implement measures deemed “urgent,” without specifying the criteria for making that determination.

I don’t know about you, but given Netanyahu’s hysterical insistence on locking everyone down right from the beginning – based on zero real evidence – that has me really worried.

And do you know when this piece of legislation takes effect?

Yup.

August 10th, 2020.

====

In other words, we are two weeks away from the start of the third, and final trimester of the process where Moshiach is hidden, while ‘foreign powers’ continue to rule Israel for 9 months.

(BTW, two big kabbalists are saying the same thing, including Rav Yehuda Sheinfeld, and Rabbi Aaron HaKohen.)

Rav Sheinfeld:

It’s accepted amongst the tzaddikim that we are now in the period of time known as the chevlei Moshiach (birthpangs of Moshiach) – in the final stages. We are in the nine last months of the chevlei Moshiach.

====

And the message from the Tzaddik Nistar:

AT THE END OF THIS GALUT, THIS EVIL MALCHUT (LITERALLY: ROYALTY, FIGURATIVELY: GOVERNMENT) WILL SPREAD IN ISRAEL, AND IN THE WHOLE WORLD FOR THE DURATION OF NINE MONTHS.

May we be saved from it, and and may we be redeemed speedily in our days, amen.

Pay attention, that this is beginning with one lockdown, and then another lockdown… Until all of us will be in an absolute lockdown. Don’t say that we didn’t tell you.

Today, it’s still possible to stop this.

Pharoah also started [to enslave] Am Yisrael with soft words.

If we do teshuva, but not completely, meaning with full, heart-felt intention, we will need to complete the relative portion with suffering, the very difficult ‘birthpangs of the Moshiach’, rachmana litzan (Hashem should have mercy).

Therefore, everyone should come, like one man, with one heart, let’s pray together, let’s do teshuva from love, and let’s merit to have geula b’rachamim (redemption with mercy), TODAY! If we will only listen to his voice.

But it’s 100%, that we will not return to the ‘routine’ again.

We are in the final process of geula, Am Yisrael, and how it’s going to come – either with din (harsh judgment) or rachamim (mercy) depends on us.”

====

I don’t need to tell you what the last three months of a pregnancy are like.

Extrapolate for yourselves, and know that this is what we are heading into, starting August 10th, 2020.

But take heart!

This is all just a means to a spiritual end, and something very good is going to flower from the ashes of this corrupt world that is currently winding down.

Let’s give the last words to Rabbi Eliezer Berland:

THOSE SIX YEARS FROM 5776 UNTIL 5781, THESE ARE YEARS OF REDEMPTION.

THESE ARE YEARS IN WHICH THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL WILL DO TESHUVA, THE BIGGEST CRIMINALS WILL DO TESHUVA, BECAUSE THERE ARE NO SECULAR IN THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND THERE ARE NO CRIMINALS AMONG THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL, AND NO WICKED PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.

“These are all just stages in the salvation, it’s all stages in the development of the soul, in accepting the parts of the soul, the biggest gangster in the end will become the most righteous man.”

====

I’ve been quoting this passage for four years, and it’s written in the first Volume of One in a Generation I.

We are seeing it play out before our eyes.

So hold on!

But also carry on working on your middot and emuna.

Because that is the whole point of the madness that’s going on with COVID-19.

The subliminal stress is through the roof at the moment.

As soon as I leave the house, and I see the masks, or I see the cops, I start to remember that we’re in this crazy Purimshpiel called ‘Coronavirus’ again.

And it’s pretty stressful, even though I know it’s leading to geula the hopefully sweet way, and a much, much better world than we currently live in. The problem is, we are in that ‘in-between’ stage at the moment, when the revealed good still hasn’t been so revealed, while the revealed bad is going all out, because it’s the last chance it has to make it’s bid for global domination.

It’s pretty stressful.

Then, I remind myself that the Israelites in Egypt still had to work, and carry on with ‘pretend normal’ for the first 3 of the 10 plagues, and it seems to me, that was probably the most head-wrecking time of all, because even after the Nile turned to blood, and the frogs were croaking all over the place, and the lice were on every Egyptian head and every Egyptian body – the media were still just blaming all that on global warming.

And the Israelites were still expected to turn out every morning to go to work in the Egyptian civil service, and Nile-Mart was still selling BBQs for half price, and Mr and Mrs Levy were still trying to get a mortgage sorted out on the new pyramid project being built in Harish before the next plague hit and closed the economy down permanently.

Pretty stressful.

====

So anyway, the subliminal stress has been really high recently, probably for all of us.

Since the full lockdown in Israel ended a couple of months ago, me and my husband have been taking every opportunity we can to do all the things we wanted to do, but didn’t have the time or motivation for, before.

And top of the list is going to visit kivrei tzaddikim, or holy graves of dead holy Jews.

Last week, I booked us to go to the graves of Calev and Yehoshua in Kifel Haris, and also to the grave of Yosef HaTzaddik, in Shechem. Because both places were given away to the Palestinians under Oslo, those visits need to be arranged with an IDF escort, you can’t just drive in yourself (although some people still do….)

But I’m not on that level, so I booked our armored buses, and I was really looking forward to going.

Of course, it got cancelled.

Because of ‘COVID-19’.

(I am doing ‘whatever’ fingers, writing this.)

====

So instead, I decided to seek out some of the other tombs we haven’t been to visit yet.

Last week, we went to the grave of Yehuda, buried in the middle of a small park surrounded by new apartment buildings in Yehud.

And yesterday, we went to the graves of Binyamin and Shimon – also both sons of the Patriarch Yaakov – who are buried off Route 55, near to Kfar Saba, about a 10 minute drive apart.

We got to Binyamin first, and the car park next to it was full of cars. The site itself was also full of people – mostly Na-Nachs – and there was a very sociable vibe going on. Tables were set up for a haluka, the ceremony where you give a 3 year old boy his first haircut, teenagers were smoking a nargila in one of the structures of to the side, and elsewhere, there were scores of men gathered to hear a shiur.

After all the police enforcement in Jerusalem, it was a really nice change, but still a little bizarre, to say the least.

I turned into the blue-domed structure housing the tomb of Binyamin the son of Yaakov, and there was one other young woman there – wearing a facemask – who left after a couple of minutes.

It was 4.30 in the afternoon, and I still hadn’t said my morning brachot, so I found a siddur, sat on the bench, struggled to say the brachot…then fell asleep with my head on the tomb. That doesn’t happen a lot, but whenever it happens, I always feel something ‘big’ has shifted, spiritually – so big, that I can only actually deal with it by being asleep.

Half an hour later, I woke up, went to find my patient husband (who was catching the shiur, after he’d peeked in and saw I’d fallen asleep) – and then we headed off to Kever Shimon.

====

Kever Shimon is located in a lonely field, right next to Route 6.

From the dirt track that leads on to it, it looks as though it’s surrounded by brambles and thorns. We walked through them, until we realised that you could drive down the road a little further on, and turn in.

The grave itself was open, covered in memorial candles and tikkun haklalis – and otherwise totally deserted.

The contrast between Binyamin and Shimon was profound.

I sat on the one chair to recite a couple of tikkun haklalis, while my husband wandered around to say his.

It was such a calm vibe there.

I loved it.

I really felt as though the half an hour I spent there filled me up with enough koach to keep going this week, because sometimes it’s hard to keep going.

Sigh.

====

I know we’re all feeling it at the moment.

I’m trying to concentrate on keeping things as ‘normal’ as I can for my teens, and to keep things going as smoothly as I can on the home front, while the 10 plagues continue to play out past the front door step.

Go and re-book your driving test!!! I tell my teens.

Even though the world is going to change radically very soon, I still want you to be able to drive the car to the supermarket!!!

(For as long as it exists….)

Sigh.

====

All I can do, is carry on going to the Kivrei Tzaddikim, for as long as I’m able to, and to continue talking to God about everything that’s happening, to try and stay as close to Him as I can, while the madness continues to play out.

I think there’s another 5 months of this, until November 9th.

And I think it’s going to up another level August 9th, in the ‘last trimester’, and get even more intense than it is now.

I have to pace myself.

And staying close to the true tzaddikim, alive and dead, are a big part of that.

For as long as I can continue to do it.

If you want to know what I’m basing the ‘nine months’ on, taking us up to November 9th, 2020, take a look at this:

 

 

 

 

 

It looks like shocking police brutality in Israel it hitting the headlines…again.

That was the headline I wrote initially, after reading this story on the Times of Israel, that was picked up after it hit the Israeli press 3 days ago.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/man-says-he-was-beaten-by-police-and-jailed-for-four-days-for-not-wearing-mask/

Here’s what the ‘story’ says:

A 24 year old resident of Holon called ‘David Biton’ appears in this video on Youtube, apparently being brutally attacked by the police for not wearing a facemask (strangely, shmirat eynayim friendly).

====

====

Now, I’m not a big fan of the police in this country, and I believe the institution is totally corrupt.

However, when I was reviewing this video before deciding whether to put it up on my site, I noticed something strange: The policeman who is meant to be ‘punching’ this guy, ‘David Biton’, in the face is not making contact.

I thought my eyes were deceiving me, so I went and slowed the video down to a quarter of its playing speed (you can do that yourselves, by selecting .25 in the Playback Settings for that video) then pay very careful attention to what is happening from the .30 second mark on.

That’s when I noticed that

NEITHER OF THE POLICEMEN WHO ARE APPARENTLY BEATING ‘DAVID BITON’ UP ARE MAKING CONTACT WITH THEIR BLOWS.

And then, if you go back and look at the picture of David Biton on the Times of Israel site, you realise that he has NO BRUISES OR CUTS ANYWHERE ON HIS FACE.

Which just doesn’t add up to the televised testimony he gave to the Knesset that he threw up several times after being beaten, and lay twitching on the pavement for 40 minutes after the attack.

====

So, I have to say that this is a staggering piece of information, even for me.

We saw in the USA that there’s been a concerted campaign to turn the citizens against the police nationwide, replete with calls to ‘defund the police’ and to essentially disband the police force.

When Moshiach comes, that will happen the good, natural way as the yetzer hara will finally be gone, so the men in blue won’t be needed anymore.

But we’re not quite there yet.

And bad as the police are – and believe me, they are REALLY bad – you can’t get rid of that institution the way the world is currently configured without delivering society up wholesale to the forces of evil.

And that seems to be the plan.

FOMENT PUBLIC UNREST => GET RID OF POLICE => INTRODUCE MARTIAL LAW WITH BRAIN-FRIED KILLERS REMOTE CONTROLLED FROM WHO-KNOWS-WHERE

And this video appears to be a carefully-staged piece of the ‘anti-police’ propaganda that is now meant to have us all pouring into the streets and rioting a la George Floyd.

====

The last thing to say is that the same day George Floyd was killed by police – conveniently on camera – in the USA, an autistic 31-year-old unarmed Arab man was gunned down in cold blood in Jerusalem.

Just read this lead paragraph from the Ha’aretz story about the incident, and see how many boxes you can tick, on the ‘let’s go riot now’ form:

New eyewitness testimony in the shooting and killing of Eyad Hallaq, a 32-year-old autistic Palestinian man, in Jerusalem’s Old City last Saturday, strengthens the suspicion that police shot him while he was lying on the ground, and after his counselor yelled that he was disabled.

All the media in Israel tried to instigate some ‘George Floyd’ type riots here with similarly breathless headlines, designed to spark off total outrage in the Arab populace, but apart from a couple of minor incidents in Jaffa, no-one else in the Palestinian community seems to have taken the bait to spark off ‘the next Intifada’, conveniently just in time for the great unveiling of Trump’s ‘Peace Plan’.

People, are you starting to see just how cynically they’ve been playing us for fools, for decades already?

====

So now, they are trying again.

They are using facemasks and ‘staged’ police brutality, together with leading pieces all over the Hebrew and English media trying to incite the population here to go violently against the government, and to start rioting.

Why are they doing this?

Does it just boil down to trying to disintegrate the fabric of society as quickly and poisonously as possible, so that they have an excuse to introduce martial law and then just ram their ‘population control’ agenda down everyone’s throats at the point of a gun?

Or is something else going on?

What I can tell you, is that the world – or at least, my bit of it – just got way weirder.

Thank God, the Rav’s books are nearly ready.

In every marathon, there comes a point where we ‘hit the wall’.

In running parlance, it’s that moment when you literally feel like you’ve totally run out of energy, and you can’t continue a second longer.

There’s a bunch of technical explanations for why that happens, but basically your standard reserves of energy deplete, and then, unless the body can access it’s deeper resources, you collapse in a puddle, unable to move forward.

As with the body, so with the soul.

Yesterday night, I ‘hit the wall’ spiritually.

God, I can’t continue like this any more, trying to run away from ‘COVID-19’ and the evil police state 24/7…

Not that I haven’t been trying.

====

Since all this started kicking off back in February, I’ve been engaged in one long, extended stress response to what’s going on, after another.

I’ve raged and ranted and actively tried to resist = ANGER.

I’ve also run away – about 32 different times – to different spots all across the country, where the rules are a little more relaxed, and I can get away with breathing fresh air and not wearing a face mask = FLIGHT.

I’ve had moments of black despair, where I couldn’t summon the will to even get out of bed (at least, for a couple of hours…) because the picture just looks so bleak, and depressing, and I’ve felt so powerless to change anything = FREEZE.

But the one thing I HAVEN’T done is try to ignore ‘the problem’ – as ginormous as it’s looming – to just try and pretend that it’s business as usual, and everything will be OK. That superficial, everything-is-A-OK sort of BS is a typical FLATTER response, and as you might have noticed, I have very little ‘FLATTER’ in my personality.

But yesterday, I hit the wall on the other 3 stress responses, which means that FLATTER is what I’ve got left to try, going forward.

====

In the People Smarts personality system, I spelled out how these 4 stress responses are the often negative ‘flip side’ of some very positive character traits.

ANGER = MOTIVATION, on the positive side.

FLIGHT = CONNECTION

FREEZE = PHILOSOPHICAL THINKING, and

FLATTER = BUILDING.

Building doesn’t just mean that you go out and build a house, or a barn, or a shed. It means all those grounding, nurturing, stabilising activities that are often so very gashmius, but which are nevertheless a crucial part of being able to function in the world without going bonkers.

As you might have noticed, I’ve had very little of that BUILDING stuff going on recently, as I had a massive reaction to lockdown which saw me scuddering off into FLIGHT anyway I can, while I can still move 100 metres beyond my house, without getting ‘permission’ from the corrupt politicians and bureaucrats.

And so, I crashed.

====

This morning, I realised I have to make a few big changes to my priorities.

I will still be commenting on current affairs as and when I feel the need, but in terms of unpicking COVID-19 – I’m going to leave that to others for now.

Because while other people can go and look up THE FLEMING FUND, and then can go and read articles about NSO Group’s ‘Pegasus‘ phone spying software (that is definitely on your SmartPhone already, make no mistake, and being used already, regardless of any official ‘legislation’ enabling the ShinBet to do that legally, please don’t fool yourself) – and they can also look up NSO Group’s ‘FLEMING’ technology, and can start to question those CO-IN-CID-ENCES themselves, and join some dots themselves….

No-one else can write One in a Generation #3.

And that’s what is really going to make all the difference here, between the ‘Great Reset’ happening their way, or happening the Moshiach and geula-coming-the-sweet-way, way.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, watch this, (shmirat eynayim friendly).

Here’s something else I realised this morning:

I have to take the plunge, and get the Rav’s books printed in Israel.

It’s going to cost a small fortune, but now that the corrupt Israeli police made it next to impossible to raise funds, legitimately, for things like printing the Rav’s books without risking an ‘interview’ with the Shin Bet, what can I do?

The plan is to try to print 100 of each of the Rav’s books, here in Israel, and then see if we can sell them.

My husband is already panicking that we’re going to be tripping over boxes of ‘Advice’ and ‘Miracles’ for the next 12 years – but I’m more optimistic than that.

I know that sooner or later, the penny will drop that getting behind the Rav, and learning his Torah, and spreading his light, is the best – and increasingly only – option we have, for really fighting the forces of evil in the world.

The Rav himself said that getting his books out there is destroying all the tumah and evil in the world, and each time a new book comes out, I see another surprising development occurs very shortly afterwards.

“There is such great dinim and tumah in the world, but my books and my writings, the Torah and the prayers, are cleaning and purifying all the judgments and the tumah from the world.”

FOR EXAMPLE.

Last week, Rabbi Eliezer Berland’s Advice for Success and Happiness came out on Amazon.

That same day, Jeffrey Epstein came back into the headlines, as all the evil, yukky people connected to him – and this whole massive COVID-19 scam – started to be put back into the spotlight.

Today, Ghislaine Maxwell got arrested.

That is huge.

It’s going to affect everything, I don’t know how, but I just know it will.

So, I’m getting back on with the job of getting the Rav’s books written and printed, and then we’ll just watch all this evil implode by itself, shall we?

Because at this point, I have run out of energy to do anything else.
