I have readers that notice how I always say that everything is from Hashem, and everything is for the good. Yet, there are those who question: Is the death of good people at the hands of a terrorist a good thing; is a baby left in a hot car to die, chas v’shalom, a good thing; is sickness a good thing; are accidents good; is the loss of a home, job, pension, etc a good thing, etc? All valid questions that can only be understood when one understands Hashem’s world and its purpose.
Let me explain a very difficult concept that I can give you many, many details, but no human being, including me, really has the ability to comprehend. Planet Earth is not the real world. This is a place that Hashem created for the purpose of our spiritual "Fixing/Rectification, Correction, Perfection,” better known as Tikun. We are only here to accomplish a purpose and then go back to the real world. It might help if you read my post of 4 May 2012, entitled:
And my post of 17 April 2012, entitled:
Since Hashem is giving us an opportunity to fix ourselves for all eternity, and He gave us the tools to do so (a physical world with the commandments to accomplish), all we need to do is get our purpose on this world accomplished. Unfortunately, we usually don’t accomplish this in one lifetime, so Hashem allows us to come back several times to continue the mission – fixing ourselves.
There are several possibilities for each one of us in a lifetime. One, is we reach Tikun, accomplish all the commandments, and move on to our eternal reward forever and ever. Second, we accomplish some of it and have to return in another life to continue, hopefully, to complete the task. Hashem is not in this allusion of time, which He created for us to navigate through this lifetime. However, not being in our time means He sees exactly what we will accomplish before the fact, and knows if we need to stay or be taken out for Tikun in another way. We also have the possibility, unfortunately, of accomplishing only evil and never reaching Tikun. That is a hell of a group.
Hell, by the way has two purposes: one is to cleanse and the other to punish. If we just need some additional cleansing, we may leave Earth and have a short stay in Hell then go on to the real world for reward (there are a lot more details to this that I will not cover here). Then there are those who were so evil that Hell is strictly a punishment.
The system is much, much more complicated than I could described here, since there are so many variations and possibilities in Hashem’s very complicated system for us to be helped. Very important word that I just used is that Hashem has given us this system to help us get to the highest level of spirituality possible. One might ask doesn’t Hashem have the ability to put all of us at the top? Once again, Hashem did not create us as robots, but gave us His characteristics in His image (not physical, but spiritual) to help ourselves.
So, let us apply this information to our questions above. Let us even get more complicated. Scenario: a commercial plane crashes and 200 on board die, chas v’shalom. Were they all meant to die at that moment? Yes! Hashem put these particular souls together because their time was up. But, the 200 who left this world together had 200 different situations of need to complete this tour on Earth. Some were close to completing Tikun. The final trauma of a plane crash and their death was the final correction needed. Some have completed as much as they could on Earth, and since Hashem saw that they would accomplish no more (at least nothing positive to help themselves), Hashem removed them from this life. Some would not accomplish anything and would actually hurt others if they were to remain; hence they were finished. The idea with all this is that they received what Hashem could give them in this life, took advantage of it or not, but had to leave since there was nothing else to be gained by staying.
I have to add a caveat: the loves ones who remain are being tested as well, which means that the demise of a loved one is Tikun for those mourning the departed.
Another caveat: the horrors of the world such as terror, plane crashes, even weather disasters are not caused by Hashem. He only uses them to provide us with the Tikun we need. Am I saying that an earthquake is not from Hashem? I am saying that it comes about because of the negative energies that come from the people living on this planet. When people decide that same sex marriages are OK by civil law or that abortions are OK by civil law, we are the ones who have set up the energy levels for destruction. If we would all follow Hashem’s will, there would by total peace and calm worldwide. Of course, once the Moshiach is in charge we will have that peace and calm.
Let us get specific about another situation. There are times that a person is close to reaching completeness in a lifetime, but only needs a short experience on Earth to finish. This is when a baby would be sent back, and does not live beyond a short time; exactly the amount of time to finish the Tikun. I wanted to make it clear that this is not a case of the baby wasn’t doing enough or was a mean person and had to be removed; it is definitely from a previous reincarnation that this baby only needed so much time.
I experienced this when I lived in the states. A neighbor of ours had a boy who developed Leukemia at age two. It progressed and at age 4 he left Earth. At the Shiva, his mother stated: she was aware that her son only needed these four years, including the suffering, to complete his Tikun and that it actually was a happy occasion for her son. Not too many people on Earth are at the spiritual level of this mother, who truly knew Hashem’s system and why she lost her son. An event like this is not bad, it is sad. For the departed, it is an extremely joyous occasion reaching the Tikun, and going on in the real world of eternal reward. For the family remaining it is very sad, yet it is additional Tikun for the family members.
I should mention that the Facilitated Communications individuals are all in this situation of just needing additional Tikun to complete a very high level of spirituality. They actually know who they were in the previous life, and why they had to come back. If they are chosen by Hashem to relay messages to help the people on Earth, they are aware of that also, and know that the helping is their Tikun.
We learned this lesson years ago from Galia, who was a young girl in Israel who knew that she was her grandmother in a previous life, who did not complete her Tikun. She came back with a severe case of Down Syndrome; she was not physically in this world, but totally in contact with Heaven. Galia was a behavioral problem until the age of 11 when her mother heard about Facilitated Communications. Her mother thought after 11 years of not communicating with her daughter, who she loved dearly, that she possibly found a way to talk to Galia. The mother was so nervous at the first session set up with a facilitator, that she realized the list of questions that she wrote to ask her daughter, she left at home. Galia told the mother not to worry and answered the questions in order as the mother had written them. The mother knew without any doubt that she was talking to Galia’s soul, and from that day forward Galia was no longer a behavioral problem. Why? Galia explained that it was like she was let out of prison, and could really be with her family.
One additional detail about Galia that adds to our conversation here. When Galia was 15, she told her mother that she would be dying in thirty days; she had completed her Tikun and was ready to leave Earth. The mother was greatly distraught at losing a daughter, that she loved so much. Galia explained how horrible her condition was on Earth, and the fact that she didn’t need this place anymore; her mission was complete. Part of her mission was to change her family from a secular family to an observant Torah family; and, she greatly succeeded at that task. Galia also added how excited she was to be going to the real world, where everything is wonderful; she was totally aware of the reality of this world, and the real world. She told her mother that she did not want to be here any longer than she had to, especially when she knew exactly how wonderful a place it was that she was going – the real tremendous world, with no physical problems. I highly recommend the book “Galia,” that her mother wrote to relay this story with a happy ending.
I know that there are thousands of questions that could be asked, considering I tried to tell you a very complicated system in as short an essay as possible. The most important point is that Hashem is infinitely merciful and wants only the best for each of us. His system of measure for measure is designed for us to earn our good fortune for this life and for eternity. To try to outguess Hashem, and the true ways of this world is fruitless and completely ignorant. Hashem gave us all the tools to succeed and the knowledge to use those tools.
The problem is we are out of time. The worldwide redemption has come for all Jews and righteous non-Jews of the world. We will all get Tikun soon but, as I have said before, a billion different people will receive a billion different spiritual levels of Tikun – levels that we will have to live with forever and ever.
If I told you that following Hashem for the next two or three weeks (I am not predicting, just giving an example), doing His commandments and stepping up the observance of all His instructions, will result in a billion years of reward beyond your wildest dreams, would you consider it? If I added that by completely doing Hashem’s will for a mere two or three weeks will wind up in a trillion years of goodness and happiness for your family, would that sound good? If I added that two or three weeks will get rid of all your personal problems, and you will only have joy for the next quadrillion years, would you like that? There is no such thing as time; it is an allusion that will disappear when we are in the true world of love and goodness. Just know that eternity is forever and ever and ever, and even though we will not have time, we will be aware of the level of spirituality, the closeness to Hashem that we had achieved, and will live with forever. We live forever! Our physical bodies will eventually become totally spiritual. All our physical needs will be gone. We will then know spiritual pleasure and joy that is so far above any physical joy we knew on this planet, that we will kick ourselves forever when we know what we could have had versus what we settled for because we thought we knew better.
Hashem gave us a hint to the transparent spiritual existence that we will all have. Our finger nails are see-through, as Adam and Eve were when they were spiritual beings in the Garden before the sin. They were not physical, but Hashem gave us a glimpse of their spirituality and ours in the future as finger nails.
A few more weeks of saving ourselves and our loved ones is absolutely vital to our eternal life. We are so concerned by the upcoming devastation from Nibiru. However, it too is all good news since it will wipe out the evil of the Earth and completely heal the righteous. We just need to be in the correct group with Nibiru and beyond. Thank you Hashem for all the opportunities that you have given us to survive, thrive and go on to such a tremendous eternity. Please Hashem, help us with wisdom to take advantage of Your mercy and do the right thing.
This entire world is an allusion. Nothing is real. I can always tell the level of education of the individual that I am telling this at this point. The ignorant one pounds on a table and says to me: this is not real? I tell that person: wow an Infinite Source of Intelligence, Who is running this world, couldn’t fool you, could He? Yes, the world is an allusion, and Hashem has no trouble making us believe otherwise. Yes, it is our reality; it is what Hashem wanted us to experience. It just happens to be Hashem’s imagination, and not real. I have mentioned that even scientists are aware of this and believe that the universe is a hologram, a perfect computer program with nothing random. They won’t go as far as saying: it has to have a Designer, but they are scratching their heads in wonderment.
I treat everything like it is a test to help me go into the real world at a higher spiritual level. When the real world starts soon, we will fully understand the craziness of this world – that is exactly what it is CRAZINESS!!!! (Sorry, I didn't mean to shout).
Not taking everything so seriously and realizing that absolutely everything is for the good; it has to be; it is from Hashem. It will become evident soon, and will be the only way to live. Having full faith in Hashem is all we need; everything else is nonsense.
