Jerusalem Day 5-12-2010

Today we celebrate the liberation of Jerusalem during the Six-Day War. This historic magnificent event is meaningful in many ways, because Jerusalem is not only a place in time and space but also the highest level of consciousness in which we are completely aware of the permanent connection between Israel and G-d's Love.

We lost our precious city when we allowed our enemies to invade her, and they expelled us from her. Who are our enemies? Those which pursue
our destruction by harming our connection with Divine Love, by "occupying" our special and beloved Holy City that is the capital, the indivisible head of Israel. And Israel means the people chosen by Divine Love to spread His Light into the world. Our enemies are those who want to impose the illusions of darkness in order to conceal G-d, Love's Light in Jerusalem, our head's highest Divine awareness.

Today we celebrate the liberation of our Holy City from their strange occupiers, and this liberation is not enough. We have to rebuild Jerusalem and her Temple where we have complete awareness of our Oneness with the Creator. This reconstruction is achieved by permanently living in His will, ways and attributes by which the His Presence, the Shechinah, is restored in our consciousness. The Shechinah abandoned our Holy City when our enemies destroyed the Temple and expelled us from our Land. We pray three times daily for the reconstruction of Jerusalem, and we implore our G-d to dwell forever again in her "as an eternal edifice", "and establish the throne of David within her" (Jewish prayer book). After two thousand years our prayers were answered: in a miraculous war with the help of G-d our Army liberated Jerusalem. Now we have to do our part to fulfill the Divine promise stated by our Prophets: to rebuild the Holy City, our higher consciousness of G-d's Love. We fulfill that promise in the same way we did when He commanded us to liberate the Promised Land after our Exodus from Egypt and our dwelling forty years in the desert of Sinai, by defeating those who want to destroy us and impose darkness in the world. These are the same enemies who are against Love's ways and attributes.

If we want the Divine promise fulfilled we have to start with our individual
consciousness defeating the negative traits and qualities that hold us down into the darkness of illusions, either be ideas, beliefs, thoughts, emotions, feelings, passions and instincts that threaten to expel us from our true home, our Land, our City, our Temple: our permanent awareness of Divine Love in our lives and in all Creation. Happy Jerusalem Day!

From the Book's Foreword

Let's reexamine our ancestral memory, intellect, feelings, emotions and passions. Let's wake them up to our true Essence. Let us engage in the delightful awareness of Love as the Essence of G-d. The way this book is written is to reaffirm and reiterate its purpose, so it presents its message and content in a recurrent way. This is exactly its purpose, to restate the same Truth originally proclaimed by our Holy Scriptures, Prophets and Sages. Our purpose is to firmly enthrone G-d's Love in all dimensions of our consciousness, and by doing it we will fulfill His Promise that He may dwell with us on Earth forever. Let's discover together the hidden message of our ancient Scriptures and Sages. In that journey, let's realize Love as our Divine Essence, what we call in this book the revealed Light of Redemption in the Messianic era.
