Episode Thirty-Two: “MESSIANIC TRANSCENDENCE”
The past four Episodes have featured kaleidoscope of diverse Torah teachings all clarifying a pithy, enigmatic Talmudic statement indicating that mindlessness about Moshiach was virtuous and desirable.
In conclusively proving that a literal understanding of this Talmud teaching is impossible to entertain, we learnt to understand this Gemara in multiple unique ways; all of which properly reflect authentic, and therefore timeless Torah tradition.
In this Episode we explore a deeper mystical and spiritual positive meaning of “Hesach HaDaas” (lit. diverting one’s mind or attention or) to achieving a heightened state of consciousness that is transcendent of mindful limitations of rational cognition.
Once this liberating idea about loosing the limitations of mindfulness is properly articulated, it becomes easy to understand why our sages viewed the link between mindlessness and Moshiach as a match made in heaven.
Discover how transcendence of recognition, rhyme and reason most naturally allows for the revelation of the redeemed perfected reality of Moshiach!
This is the Thirty Second Episode of our ongoing study series on The Geula, our final Redemption generally referred to as the Coming of Moshiach (The Messiah).
