Thank you Rabbi Friedman :) You are a great teacher.
I noticed most plants, trees, seem to be lifting up towards the heavens..
worshiping G-d. Even my dogs seem to have G-d's nature of unconditional love.

"Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
12 Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
let all the trees of the forest sing for joy." Reply

"Do you see what I’m saying?" Radio waves and afterglow. The Black hole actually “gives” if you can perceive the light. "The emission instead originates from an active galactic nucleus that is powered by a supermassive black hole. Dual jets blast outward from the black hole, and complex physical processes within those jets create a constant source of radio waves. The variations we see from Earth may be due to a process called "scintillation," where interstellar gases make an intrinsically steady radio beacon appear to flicker, just like Earth's atmosphere makes light from stars twinkle. The source itself might also be varying as the active galactic nucleus periodically gulps a little more matter and flares in brightness.”
I’m reminded of the Israelites wandering the desert, who are given manna to eat, yet their clothing never wears out and they do not have to go to the bathroom. They are still immature, developing in the incubator of the desert. Perhaps the small insect mentioned as the lowest of the low indicates a person who is unable to fully mature into their potential?

even after 25 years ... I first heard you speak over 25 years ago and still I can listen to your words over and over and over again.. not as an addiction .. I don't always get it the first time . Thank G-d for videos... wouldn't it be nice ( there's probably a better word) to be less selfish.. Not to "Be " or be less about "me" - a tall order - at least for some of us.. I'm working on it... of course not as self improvement Reply
