ANTICIPATION is a series featuring 120 segments – on the Twelfth Principle of our Jewish Faith: Belief in and Awaiting the Coming of The Messiah (Moshiach). We draw on a wide range of classic and contemporary commentaries to clearly address the burning issue of passive Waiting vs active Anticipation!
Episode Forty-Four, entitled ‘INTENDED CONSEQUENCE’ introduces us to the Era of Moshiach as the climax and sum of thousands of years of spiritual toil.
In other words, the messianic utopia is not only a promised, but inherently unrelated reward for our blood, sweat, and tears, but rather a direct consequence of our efforts, inspiration, and perspiration.
So, here’s the question we may now ask: who care?! Do intended consequences require intention, or are our intentions immaterial?
In addition to providing clarity on the relevancy of intent and mindfulness, this Episode will open the door to an important topic that will be further explored and elaborated in the immediate Episodes to follow.
This lesson comprises the Forty-fourth segment of an ongoing study series on The Geula, our final Redemption generally referred to as the Coming of Moshiach (The Messiah).
