Same Space

Oh to be a bochur in 770, standing near the Rebbe - standing near the Rebbe! - sucked into holiness until you too are holiness.

Gaze at the Rebbe every minute. But not to look inside during tefillah? Noch when the Rebbe is right there? Here?? But not to behold the Rebbe's face every second we have a chance??!

And so the battle continuess...

But there's another player here. The world. See the world through the eyes of the Rebbe and then you, holiness, can turn world into holiness by virtue of the fact that you've connected with the Rebbe.

Rebbe, siddur, world, Rebbe, siddur, world.

Wonder what I'd do...

Q. How did one glass break another?
A. It breathed (while the third was in another cabinet).

Such a wretched creature.
So much to fix.
So much messed up character.
Why are these sent into the world?
Arghh no fair

(Hey what time zone do you follow? I'll say mine.)

Good night, Heaven.

Why The Anger?

Maybe it's cuz death shows we have no control?

So why anger?

Is the anger fear of not having any control?

Is the anger sadness? Maybe the anger is anger?

******

Oh.

The five stages of grief. Denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

(Just remember, "the five stages, denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance are a part of the framework that makes up our learning to live with the one we lost. They are tools to help us frame and identify what we may be feeling. But they are not stops on some linear timeline in grief.")

Perseverance, Patience and Prayer

You need perseverance, patience and prayer and then things work out.
But really prayer.
(With perseverance and patience.)

Oh please, G-d, let me remember this and better yet please don't test me!!

So much hurt
So much hurt

So much hurt

Just so much rage, bitterness, hurt and pain. So much so much so much pain.

F.C. UK

Sometimes, - like right now - I feel like the imperial representative of Britians's French Connection.
