scales that lie

The ultimate lie of this world is that something, anything, is lacking Godliness.

God totally and utterly permeates all that there is. (We say He is the place of everything but everything isn't His place.)

This whole existence as we know it is predicated on the idea that there could be a vacuum of Godliness.

This lie was introduce with the original sin of Adam HaRishon, the insipid lie of the Nachash, the snake. What was the lie exactly? That our eyes would be opened when we ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Until the sin, Adam saw the primordial light and within it he could see from one of the universe to the other, across all time and space. After the sin, this light was secreted away from him. The snake told Havah (Eve) there was more to see, and she believed him.

As long as we look at this world and seek out something more, we validate the lie, we hide ourselves from Godliness. It's only when we look out at the world round about us and realize that it is all a revelation of Godliness, that's when we start to peer beyond this world, Olam HaZeh - Olam HaSheker - the world of lies.

According to a letter of Rebbe Natan's in Alim l'Truphah, Moshiah will be able to reveal this intrinsic Godliness in every element of existence to us. [see A Simple Jew @ http://asimplejew.blogspot.com/2008/10/anticipating-his-arrival-every-single.html
