Most people today arrogantly mock dreams and
their ominous portents. When people choose
to mock, there is no talking to them. When
people want to believe only what they want to
believe there is no talking to them.
Great turning points in history happen in a
moment and most people are just too busy with
their petty little lives to realize when
something great and ominous has just
occurred. Although the conscious mind
remains petty and preoccupied, the
unconscious mind is not fettered by such
chains of distraction. The unconscious mind
sees and knows that which the conscious minds
of most do not want to know.
Deep down with us all, we are all connected
through that which Jungian psychology calls
the collective unconscious. In Torah we use
a different set of metaphors and say that all
souls are connected through the greater soul
of Primordial Adam. Ultimately, regardless
of whatever set of terms we use to describe
it, at the deepest level of the human mind,
we are all connected and we all see beyond
the limitations of the confused and
distracted individual conscious minds.
Often, it is our own inner/Higher/unconscious
selves that try to communicate with its
conscious counterparts. This communication
takes place at the only time that the
conscious mind is ever open to the inner
influence; this is when we are asleep and
dreaming. It is in the dream state that our
inner selves communicate with that part of
the mind that will remember its message upon
awakening. This is the ominous dream of
warning. Many people are having these now.
Yet, like I said above, many arrogantly mock
these dreams and dismiss them out of hand.
Yet, one cannot dismiss the warnings coming
from the collective unconscious without their
being significant consequences. Those who
mock in the end will fall under the rock.
Great events are unfolding now that will do
nothing less than change the course of human
history forever; and we sleep.
Great, fundamental changes are just around
the corner and they will be called for and
welcomed, without any realization of what
these changes will actually bring. Woe to
the blind, for they cannot see. Woe to the
arrogant for even with eyes they refuse to
see. There are no words that can penetrate
the arrogant heart. There is nothing for
them to hear; there is nothing left for them
to see. They have made their choices and
will ultimately have no choice but to face
the consequences of their choices.
Most will mock and arrogantly proclaim that
nothing is wrong and that so much is becoming
right. Again, I have no response; for
whatever I would say, would not heard. Like
driving a car at full speed towards a cliff,
so it is today. No one is stepping on the
brakes. No one is looking ahead to the
precipice. Today everyone wants to have fun,
and have it now. The problems of tomorrow
will wait until then, or so they believe.
Yet, when tomorrow becomes today and
tomorrow's problems become today's reality,
then it is too late to address the issue and
to prepare for how to deal with it. One is
then stuck and left with very few options.
This is the path of the fool who chooses to
believe in false hopes and foolish ideals.
I am constantly disappointed by all those who
use their religion to hide behind their lack
of action when the nature of the times
demands it. I hear all types of pious
rationalizations proclaiming how G-d will
never allow anything bad to happen and that
if something bad were to happen then it is
G-d's Will and therefore one must willingly
surrender to it. This was the
rationalization used by many to justify their
placidity in face of growing unrest in
pre-Holocaust Europe and also explains why so
many never as so much lifted a finger to save
themselves and their loved ones when they
were taken away to be murdered.
The prevailing attitude was then (and is
now), what can I do about it, I am only one
person? The answer to this is plain and
simple. One should use the G-d given
intelligence one has and see what is real
instead of just what one wants to see. One
should realize the truth that we are living
on ever more shaky ground, and that in a
moment all that we know and love can be lost.
Remember this, Rome was not built in a day,
but Sodom, Gomorra, Pompeii and the World
Trade Towers were destroyed in one. I would
not be so much afraid of the expanding
embrace of Big Brother. Instead, I would be
more concerned about how Big Father will
respond to the acts of Big Brother. I do not
wish to live under the foot of Big Brother
and I certainly do not want to be there when
Big Father brings Big Brother down to Earth.
Big Brother may squeeze me, but Big Father
will cause it all to be crushed. Of course,
the choice is ours to see or to continue to
rationalize that there is nothing to see. As
Thomas Jefferson said, "I tremble for my
country when I reflect that G-d is just and
that His justice cannot sleep forever."
I strongly advise you, especially those of
you living so comfortably in Tarzana,
Evanston, Flatbush and around Monsey to take
heed to what I say here. Trust in G-d, I'm
sure you have. Sense enough to see what is
real and the courage to act upon it; this is
where I question you. Benjamin Franklin
said, "G-d helps those who help themselves."
I agree with you that G-d will always do His
share. The question however is, will you do
Do you want G-d to give you special notice as
to what is coming? You may say yes, but you
really do not mean it. What you really want
is for G-d to make all the problems to go
away and disappear. You really believe that
by you not seeing, it is G-d's Hand making it
go away. I cannot tell you just how insane
this mentality is. But of course, you will
deny that this is how you think.
Nonetheless, your actions betray you.
While one does not have to panic and act like
a fool, nonetheless, one must act wise,
prepare and move. It is often hard to tell
the difference between the wise and the fool.
Our Sages said that when prophecy was taken
away from the prophets it was given to little
children. Sometimes from out of the mouth of
babes comes the most profound and yet
Maybe we are all too sophisticated and need
to remember the simplicity of the child.
Maybe then we can hear that inner Voice that
is right now crying out to us. I know you
have been dreaming. And I know that you have
been forgetting them. Your conscious mind
does not want to be made aware of the inner
knowledge. As always, the choice is yours.
Pay no attention to my voice, but rather heed
your own inner voice. Maybe my words echo
what you already have heard before inside
yourself. Maybe this time you should pay
more attention. What is it going to take?
