Episode Thirty-one: “MESSIANIC MINDFULLNESS”
In the past three Episodes we clarified an enigmatic Talmudic statement seeming to suggest that purposely diverting our attention from, and being mindless over Moshiach would hasten his coming.
Conclusively demonstrating how a literal understanding of this teaching is untenable with well established authentic Torah traditions and Yiddishkiet practice. We learnt to understand that Gemara in three unique ways.
In this next Episode we will specifically focus on the redemptive power of mindfulness about Moshiach – NOT mindlessness – that most effectively accelerates his arrival.
Discover the unique corollary between Moshe Rabbeinu, our first redeemer and Moshiach, the final redeemer that serves to inform and inspire this redeeming idea!
The Thirty First Episode of this ongoing study series on The Geula, our final Redemption generally referred to as the Coming of Moshiach (The Messiah) has been sponsored in merit of Shmuel Yisroel ben Chana Sara for a Refuah Shleima.
