Basukos Teishvu – Mammer quotes

1. We are meant to dwell in the Sukkah for 7 days, as if it is our home.

2. Just as during the year our home is where we do everything – in the Sukkah throughout Sukkois is where we should be primarily occupied.

3. Even though we’re meant to transfer our main dwelling to the Sukkah, the Sukkah itself must be a temporary structure.

4. The Mitzvah of Lulav and Esrog is best done in the Sukkah, which shows us that there’s a connection of it, to the Sukkah.

5. Every Mitzvah, apart of the fact that it needs to be done because it is the commandment and the will of God, has a specific refinement, that it creates, in the human.

6. Sukkois is so great, for the seven days of it lead up to Shemini Atzeres.

7. Sukkois reveals all the hidden lights of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

8. On Sukkois it is revealed, even to all the nations of the world, that the Jewish people have been inscribed for a good and healthy, prosperous year.

9. The hundred blasts of the shofar on Rosh Hashanah become the Sichach, the cloud covering over Sukkah.

10. Additionally, the Sichach comes from the cloud of the Kitores, the incense offering on Yom Kippur.

11. This now is the concept, that on Yom Kippur which was the convergence, of the holiest man, in the holiest space, in the holiest time; which means, of the essence, of God Himself, it then spreads in Sukkois to all aspects of our soul, space, and time dimension.

12. The beginning of this happens on Rosh Hashanah, when we desire and crown God as king.

13. Then on Yom Kippur, this manifestation of the Divine essence, comes into us internally, and on Sukkois, it becomes revealed.

14. It becomes revealed, how God is the God of the world, to the entire world.

15. On Sukkois we sacrifice in the Holy-Temple 70 bulls for the nations of the world, and the sages say, if the nations of the world knew the protection this offers them, their armies would surround the Holy Temple, to never let it be destroyed.

16. Now we understand why the sages say that, all Jews can sit in one Sukkah, because the Sukkah, has a quality of getting to the essential core, where We are One.

17. Jews are rooted in the essential, 1 of God.

18. Because we are rooted in the essence of God, therefore our decision to follow God, touches him.

19. And therefore, on Sukkois, the job is to create Unity, manifesting the oneness of God.

20. The true revelation of God will be specifically when Moshiach comes.

21. Even though the main revelation will come when Moshiach comes, a sliver of it is available now, and in fact, it is what we do today that manifests in the future, and we can borrow from the future in the present.

22. It is well-known that the Torah has “a general and specific…,” so for example, the 10 Commandments are the general of Torah, and first of the 10, the general of the 10; and the first word, the generality of the first, the first letter, the general of the first word; simalerly, the Shofar blasts and the holiness of Yom Kippur manifest particularly, as we shake the Lulav and bring it to our heart, within us, on Sukkois, and from there, to the rest of our life.

23. The idea of the oneness of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is seen on Sukkois, in, that the role of the Lulav and Esrog, is made up of species, each one of them that contain Unity – for the Lulav’s branches are united, as the myrtles leaves stem from one location, as the willow grows together, and most of all, the Esrog not only grows through all seasons, but is enhanced by All seasons, showing that our Unity with God enhances our life throughout the year.

24. This then permeates into our dancing on Simchas Beis Hashoiavah.

25. And from the dancing on Simchas Beis Hashoiavah, we go to the infinite dance within the Beis Hamikdash.

Understanding Reality

To understand reality, lets start with “I think therefore I am (though to be honest: who is the am, who is thinking…)

But from an observational point of view, five things are empirically evident:

  1. There is a physical world.
  2. In this world, there are four main kingdoms –
    1. The inanimate (non-living: water, rocks, minerals etc.)
    2. there are the vegetative (trees, shrubs, grass etc.)
    3. there are the moving, non-speaking animals (bugs, birds, fish, beasts etc.)
    4. there is the thinking, speaking (hopefully, intelligent) human. Most importantly what this means, (for the body is only an expression of the soul) that there are various levels of the ability to observe, deduce, analyze; hence realize, discover, learn, change and grow.
  3. It is obvious that there is a single Being – for when you have any machine, with multiple parts, be it a car, computer, cell-phone, someone must have a. designed the machine b. assembled the parts in a function that has benefit – And every part of these four kingdoms has multiple parts (in a simple level, all living things, have a body, “brain,” digestive system (sometimes skeleton and nervous system) in fact, every cell is so complex, that it makes the entire physical universe look like a child’s game – suffice it to say, there are more neuron cells in your brain that chemically and electrically interact, than there are stars in the universe (and never mind the complexity of DNA, its ability to replicate etc. – never mind, the miracle of a single atom, is quarks, quantum properties… so when you have multiple functioning parts, resulting in a working machine, for a function, there has to be a. the designer, b. the assembler, c. which results in the original intent.
  4. Of-course the knowledge that there is a God (based on the scientific premises mentioned) was the discovery of Abraham; however the great question of questions, is, Why? – The answer to this question is love – when you create someone (as parent to their child/ren, or even any inventor…) the motive is always love. (Now love can be one of two things: it can either be an intrinsic love, (like a parent to the child, so the fact that “you are my child,” is the reason for the love ) or an extrinsic factor, so a. is lovable for the effect that it causes; and of-course, in an Infinite Being, there can be both.)
  5. Finally as Chassidus teaches, there are five love reasons – the first love reason, is as states in Kabbalah, “God saw our souls” (for past present and future, are equal) and his love for us (like the parent to the child… – but as God saw you grown, therefore it’s more, a reverence, respect, admiration, adoration) caused the initial desire to create
    2. We all get a pleasure from the annihilation of evil, hence God caused, as He says, “See I have created light and darkness, good and evil, choose light! (life”) So in our overcoming the dark side (the side of lust and arrogance) we bring Him great joy;
    3. When you are humble, like God (for only a humble being would find (and does find) another admirable – hence there is a great pleasure in unity (for the humble person feels honored through associating with whom they feel are honorable) hence:
    a. God seeks to unify with us (this of-course happens when we study Torah and fulfil His wishes, and especially adhere to his continual instructions, be it in the form of Hashgachah Pratis, hints, or sometimes even thoughts from beyond (as the Baal Shem Tov teaches: God speaks in hints, and sometimes even in a “random” thoughts;)
    b. Finally and perhaps most importantly, E-Pluribus-Unum, when We, God’s creation, band together, in mutual respect, love, compassion, through respecting and uplifting; This Creates Cosmic Joy.

From The radical left one “learns” that “blacks, Muslims, Arabs, gays (and all perveted “orientations”) are SUPERIOR – of course, that, the enemy of such ENLIGHTENED thinking, are the backward non-enlightened religious evil people” – From the Muslim Jihadist (which includes Sauida Arabia, palastinias, Iran, Pakistan and the too numerous to count, hundreds of millions of more) reality is that “Mohammed is THE prophet (as in every bonafide cult, the meglamniac delusional founder says, HE IS BUT A Continuation…) all other prophets (they believe Adam, Noah, Musa – Moses…) Their teachings were curropted, only the Koran is true’ – (unfortunately) the Koran tells Muslims (over thirty times) to murder innocent Jews and crishtains ( and in the case of Iran, whom are shite – they believe “when the world will be filled with blood up to a horse’s knee, the Messiah will come” – their motive for nukes…) If you are a normal Judeo- cristian ethical person, You believe in the Ten Commandments, which boils down to Goodness, Kindness, Morality, Respect, Dignity, Charity, Compassion

What every man needs to know

A. Women are like men only more aware, hence more worried, hence more anxious, hence (as by Nature, when we are suffering, and others aren’t; we feel this is unfair, and as we can’t handle when things are unfair (particularly when we are the “recipient” of the unfairness) this creates judgemental thinking

B. To make a woman happy (for in happiness, we aren’t suffering, hence don’t have judgmental thinking) you – as everything we do is based on desire , must realize, that God blesses you – and as God is infinite His Blessings likewise (in other words, no matter how good it is, it can Infinitely always get better and better) in the merit of making your wife happy
