It is sometimes said that all Jewish holidays come down to three things:
- They tried to kill us
- They did not succeed,
- Let’s eat!
We can laugh at that, but there’s a serious sub-plot lying just beneath, not buried far below.
Recognizing the historical truth, as well as the current racism toward Jews, being disliked or hated is an integral part of the here and now for them.
Although it is an ever-present-prejudice, it depends on where one is, or whom one is with, for it to manifest … to become apparent, but one can see it is growing and feeding on itself today.
In some places, in some peoples, this is becoming intense! Simply stated, this hate is a sickness!
What manifests in your life, love or hate?
A compass can guide us, only because there is a fixed point by which we navigate. My moral compass tells me hate is wrong.
Some say the world is round to teach us that we can see ahead only for a relatively short distance. That applies to “time” as well – looking ahead is often difficult, which is why a compass is of import.
Is there a fixed point in your life? Though it’s a starting point for most, seeking pleasure is not enough. We grow… things change, we never know what will be coming down; eventually, we find that life … living, must have meaning.
My fixed point allows me to see into the future somewhat (or should I say, periodically?) … something many desire. You may reject my conclusion, but it’s good and true.
Life is short; inspiration buoys us – love, music, writings, art; we’d best spend our time constructively; this should not all come to naught.
Pray and plan wisely, for beyond this place, beyond this time, … DRAGONS wait.
