Two Halves of a Whole

Currently, it is the month of Elul. It is the month when Jews say that the King is in the field. That is because they say that God comes here and meets us at our level, in our place, wherever we are at. 

I believe it has always been about the Jew. When I was at my worst, I had no idea. The only thing I could do was to believe. I had to believe in that Jew.

It was a really tough time in my life because I was in complete darkness. I was darkness. I had no idea what was light. 

I did not know right from left or up from down. I was the most confused person you ever met.

I really did not have a choice. I had only one choice. So, I made it.

I believed in the Jew.

Now, looking back, I can see. We are all here doing our correction. The darkness is the unknowing that we need to correct. God wants us to know Him. The more we understand Him the more we understand ourselves. That is because our true self is in the reflection of Him.

So, this is a month called Elul in the Jewish world where we are aware of our correction and the corrections that we have made. We can reflect on them all and see what we have learned to also understand what we had to do to understand.

We are either Jew or non-Jew. Really, we are trying to be the Jew completely but that is a forever and ever love story that He is trying to tell. 

The Jew and the non-Jew are ONE. We are the heart that works in tandem with Him. Masculine is systolic, feminine is diastolic. The Jew is the crux who joins us together as ONE. 

The Messiah

Messiah has always been here. Since the beginning of time, that light has been shining but our darkness keeps us from seeing Him. Darkness just means that we don’t understand. We are physical beings trying to understand God who is spiritual. Because we don’t understand we have not believed in the power of God who is already a part of every single one of us.

Our faith in the spirit of God is healing us by revealing Him who is what is light who is what is good who is what is right. He is the revelation of how to do things better. Our desire to understand Messiah is understanding God who is in all of us.

We heal our own selves because we believe in Him. We heal from all the toxic, old information that has been harming ourselves that we have been believing in — We correct it.

Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.

Mark 5:34

God is revealed in the image of one man, Adam. To know God, Adam had to learn who God is. So, God split Adam in two so Adam could learn to see God in his reflection.

The Depth of His Love

God’s love is so deep that to know God, to be like God [Genesis 3:5] would never be a simple task. Adam is the side of God who only loves. He is selfless, unconditional love. How do I know? Because now we know that God is only love. We all know when someone’s love is genuine. We identify with selflessness and kindness that does not get anything in return. God is like the tree of life, eternal living life because love does not die. It is always in that perfect garden.

Eve is the one who always knew. She was perfect before sin. She had never made one mistake. But she didn’t know everything because she did not know consequence yet.

So, Adam and Eve were in love and like two people in love, they just wanted to be one together — physically.

When we want something really bad we are very good at justifying our actions to have it. It is still only the sixth day. Until man knows who he is, we will never birth the light of Adam into this world.

The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

1 Corinthians 15:45

We are two halves of a whole. We are His beloved that He is waiting for. He is waiting for us to understand Him, and, so, claim our crown to His throne.

It is us that we are waiting for. We have free choice to choose to love Him, so we have to want Him. We have to want to be in love with Him.

We have to go against the ego self, also called the inclination to do evil. We die to the ego and become one with Him.

Then we see…

We see that we are becoming love.

We see that we are in love.

We are the woman who feels the man. The woman is in the man. The man is the woman. They are ONE.

We are beating louder and harder together. We feel one another.

We are becoming…

We are not good because we are becoming good. We are not light because we are becoming light. We are not perfect because we are becoming perfect. 

We are each other’s fire and are becoming the other. 

We are here to perfect each other. We are here to be a light in the darkness to the world. 

Each one challenges the other. 

This is the amazing thing about the Jew who is in all of us. 

The Jew is ONE.

We are one brain, that knows, and are becoming one heart.
