Lag B'Omer in Meron

Darkness descends
Masses ascend
One purpose One destination
One soul ..The soul of a nation..
The soul of Our soul Revealed
The Zohar..
It’s an incredible
2000 years ago R’ Shimon Bar Yochai revealed the secrets of the Torah..
The soul of our wisdom..
Breathing life into generations
Into me...
Higher and Higher up the mountain...
My focus becomes clearer and more focused
Everything outside
Falls to the wayside
Look at the bonfire..
At the bottom...dirty wood smoldering flames dancing
Higher yet...sparks...soaring..
Thousands of sparks....filling the dark sky
Look every person..
At every human flame...

Pushing into the hot
Lifted into the air...crying..praying...
Then dancing..swirling...
Immersed in Jews..
Throngs crushing the life out of me..
Until I too become a spark..
And float high above...
Its all good..
Its all high...
Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai

Miles and miles away from everything mundane..
This is what its all about

I’ll see you Wednesday..
