The Sages of the Talmud ask: “Why does G-d allow the sun and moon to exist, if they have become objects of idolatry?” They answer: The forces of nature are positive and beneficial; should God destroy His creations only because of the fools who worship them?

Kosher Meditation
13 Tammuz, 5739 · July 8, 1979
Disc 60, Program 237

Event Date: 13 Tammuz 5739 - July 08, 1979

The Sages of the Talmud ask: “Why does G-d allow the sun and moon to exist, if they have become objects of idolatry?” They answer: The forces of nature are positive and beneficial; should God destroy His creations only because of the fools who worship them?

This same principle applies to a new trend of the Twentieth Century. Many troubled youth — and adults – have joined religious cults that practice forms of meditation involving idolatrous rituals. Meditation itself can indeed have the positive effect of calming the nerves and the psyche, but it must divested of anything idolatrous.

Doctors who treat psychological or emotional disorders have a sacred obligation to find a way to utilize the therapeutic benefits of meditation in a Kosher way. When the success of a Kosher meditation method becomes publicized, people attracted by idolatrous methods will be saved.

The World
If only the entire world of people which God created would even listen to these teachings, I know it would change the outcome of our today world in a manner of which G~d is. with great goodness and holiness. How awesome this would be, I pray one day that G~d will direct all our paths in His direction of complete holiness making our world a complete loving people, filled with goodness and peace. How I wish I could part-take in fulfilling G~d's desires for us all, to live in harmony where there is no more sin, where sickness does not exist, where we can truly be higher than the angels, each and everyone of us. Connecting to the Almighty with love, humility, full acceptance of Him alone. One G~d. I love these teachings, it enlightens my being, my heart and soul. I can reach and touch G~d with good actions and words coming from my heart to my mind and my thoughts. G~d is so awesome, for many wonderful things he has done for me and others, everyday of our lives, all day long as we live.
