Healing is … the wisdom of the Jewish sage, the Baal Shem Tov. So, I’m looking at instagram and I see a quote from the Baal Shem Tov that is in a meme from a coach. Anybody know who the Baal shem Tov is? He is a Jewish sage of the 1700’s who started the Chassidic movement (that I’m a part of). Chassidism brings Kabbalah down to earth and incorporates and integrates Jewish mysticism in all parts of daily life. The Baal Shem Tov wrote a famous letter in the 1700’s describing a divine meditation that he had in which he went up (in a spiritual sense) to the chamber of Moshiach (the Messiah or, in other words, the Redeemer). He asked Moshiach when he would come to usher in the divine revelation of world Peace – a time called Geula in Jewish prophecy. The Moshiach answered him “when your wellsprings have burst forth to all corners of the world.” Meaning, when the Baal Shem Tov’s teachings have been spread far and wide all over the world, Moshiach will come, bringing in this time period of full divine light – the highest frequency of energy there is. At the time that this holy sage wrote this letter, there were no fax machines, no electricity, no planes, no cars, no internet, no google, no phones etc. How could anyone of that time imagined a world such as the one we live in today with instant access and sharing of all information from one side of the world to the other? And yet, this is the world we live in today.
The Lubovitcher Rebbe said that the world is ready to receive this great divine light of Geula awakening. His followers like me fly flags announcing this and talk about this new awakening on a daily basis. It is the essence and driving force behind everything we do because we want the end of all suffering of humanity.
And when I go on my instagram now in the year 2017 and see a quote of the Baal Shem Tov from not even a follower of the chassidic movement in which he started – just a person sharing an inspirational quote, I am beyond joy. Wow – it is really happening, people! That is how close we are to Divine consciousness and world Peace – the craziness of the world can be flipped in one second.
In the comments below, I share an article I wrote 2 years ago about the Baal Shem Tov regarding this very topic. May we see the end of all suffering and the full revelation of Peace NOW!
