At One Time

Right now, somewhere in the world, someone is laughing and someone is crying. Someone is getting married and someone just lost their spouse. Someone is being born and someone is dying.  Someone is getting better and someone is getting worse. Someone is getting their life together and someone is falling apart. Someone is celebrating and someone is mourning. Someone is planting and someone is reaping. Someone is falling in love and someone is lonely. Someone is singing a song of joy and someone is singing a song of pain. Somewhere it is day and somewhere it is night. Somewhere it is winter and somewhere it is summer. 
This world is huge and confusing and two opposites can occur simultaneously. 
In Kohelet there is a well known verse "Everything has an appointed season, and there is a time for every matter under the heaven. 
A time to give birth and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to uproot that which is planted..."
Is it possible for all of those times happen together? Same time different place. All over the world right now, it is a time for everything.

I hope that wherever you may be in this great world, there is someone special you are experiencing life with, through the joyful and the difficult. It is far to much to do alone. And if G-d is taking His time before introducing you to eachother, know He must think it's worth it.
So here I have just one question. If all of life and death can take place at this very moment, where on this earth is our redemption? We experience exile so profoundly, so painfully and for so long, we must experience our redemption the same way. Is there no place on earth where someone is experiencing the beauty of Moshiach. How much longer must we wait for this to be a reality in this time and in this place?  


  1. There are tsadikim who are experiencing the beauty of Moshiach. I've met some of them. They also pine for it to be revealed to all, even more than we ourselves do, because they know what it is.
    People need to know that Moshiach is someone who is galvanizing the Jewish people to acknowledge Torah as the authority. Tiferes means Jewish Law. But there's also Hod...which corresponds to the immune system in Kabbalah...when Jews are clear about who they are (and who they aren't) then there is that zechus, your husband is really a Moshiach, and he has done the work of clarifying Hod. May he continue in good health with a real
