Will the End of Days bring an end to human marriage as we know it? Or transform it somehow perhaps?
Because frankly, when one starts to experience glimpses of the "JUST YOU" feeling towards the ONE, and resolves and dedicates oneself to do everything it takes to make this inexplicable feeling of unconditionality permanent (and that is uniquely Jewish Work!), this makes one even more acutely aware of the human imperfection in revealing G-dliness within the context of human marriage. Knowing that it can be infinitely better, it becomes impossible to commit to or stay in it.

If the term 'marriage' in its truest and deepest sense really can only apply to the Jew's marriage to his/her G-d (which I believe to be true), then how does this affect one's perspective of human marriage?

The tikkun involved here is perhaps not to try to uphold an unrealistic, even impossible ideal of 'perfect human marriage', but start to meditate upon the justification of its existence as we know it today. Perhaps it was merely meant for biological procreation after all. Then when no biology, no marriage...

End of days
This puts a whole new meaning to the "end of days" for me, and seeking the truth and oneness.

Only one G-D
Why did the rabbi say there will not be only one G-d? At 36:24 on the tape
This was amazing.. We are so off the mark with the English versions of the bible and what is being taught in the Christian churches. But G-d will show us all soon.

Moschiah
When is Moshiach supposed to come? How long must we endure sufferings before he appears? After all these past centuries of wars and disturbances in this world of ours. We could have known Peace if Moshiach would have come earlier. Where is G-D in that respect of helping His own Creation? Questions can be asked especially after what happens to His own People!

Moshiach and the End of Days
I've been listening to the two discourses by Rabbi Manis Friedman on Moshiach.

In the first one the Rabbi spoke about people will live for 220 years. In the second one the Rabbi said, "People will live forever."

Can you clarify these questions?

Third, the Rabbi spoke about the world order being the same. Does that mean that news stations will be around. For example, Moshiach will be on CNN to tell the world who he/she is? I don't mean to be funny.
