i,Prison


Here I am thinking about Tisha B'Av and the fact that the true tragedy is not that a building was destroyed 2000 years ago but that the Shechina and Hashems presence is in exile. Its in exile within us.
My Neshama is a Chelek Elohai Mimaal, a piece of the Shechina and he's imprisoned in my body..that has it's own agenda..

I'm just picturing the press conference..
How mortifying it'll be..
when after a 2000 year intensive manhunt..spanning the entire universe..
They'll find the shechina bound and gagged..
in MY attic..

Daaavid... I haven't been in here in a couple of days... and when I come back all you have are such sad posts.. beautiful nonetheless of course.
I'm assuming things will start being a little happier once the nine days have passed...

WOW -
the sad thing is, that none of us will say 'Whew! - it's in David's attic! So we're okay.'
Many of us feel as you do.
Thanks for expressing it.
Every little thing we do counts.
Hopefully - your attic will be searched.. and the key that unlocks this galus, will be sitting there shining in all its glory.

Amen!
