The Immutable Promise

ואין ים אלא תורה
Sefer HaBahir, verse 3 excerpt

Traditional interpretation: “The sea is nothing other than Torah.”

The 4 words of this excerpt have a combined gematria of 760, the same gematria as the single word שנית, meaning ” a second time” and “again”. One finds the word שנית in Bereshit 22:15, where the malach calls to Avraham “a second time” to bless him from place Avraham named Hashem Yirah, following the ordeal of akeidah.

I can’t help but link this “second time blessing” with the “blessing of a second time” given to me as I “came down” from my G-d encounter in 1967. A promise given to me. And no one, no one, absolutely no one, can take it from me. Not a prophet. Not a judge. Not a great tzadik. Not a malach. Not even G-d. It’s an immutable decree already spoken. You can’t destroy my life and rip it from my destiny.

Deal with it. Or not.
