Just like the weather changes before a storm, the inner barometer of your soul is feeling this spiritual shift. * As the aura of Moshiach envelops the world, your personal and collective divine work grows more intense.
Our era is teeming with a unique, almost electric sense of expectancy. The atmosphere and consciousness of Moshiach isn't just a future reality; it is unfolding here and now, in unprecedented times. The Midrash states, "לכל אחד ואחד נותנין לו מאור פנים" ("to each and every one, they give him the light of countenance" (Tanna Debei Eliyahu Rabbah 5:1). As the aura of Moshiach envelops the world, you'll find that your Avoda—the personal and collective divine work—grows more intense, more vital, as if responding to the clarion call of imminent redemption.
THE WORLD OF TRANSFORMATION
The heart's symphony now beats with a new rhythm, capturing the essence of a world at the cusp of redemption. Amidst the chaos and challenges, you find pockets of heavenly tranquility within your own inner landscape. "אשריהם ישראל שכל הצער והעינוי והלחץ שהיה להם חלף והלך לו" ("Blessed are the people of Israel, for all their pain, suffering, and pressure have passed"). Your heart sings as it perceives the cosmic alignment setting in, the spiritual reality that is almost within reach.
A SPIRITUAL BAROMETER
As the Rebbe often emphasized, the dawn of Moshiach's era would herald an intensification of Hisbonenus—deep spiritual contemplation. Just like the weather changes before a storm, the inner barometer of your soul is feeling this spiritual shift. You become more attuned to the subtle hints of redemption scattered throughout your daily life, sensing a divine alignment in the palpable experiences and in the recesses of your heart.
THE NEW TORAH FOR A NEW ERA
We live in a world where the teachings of the New Torah will soon unfold, amplifying the teachings of the old while expanding our spiritual horizons in unimaginable ways. Yalkut Shimoni paints this vividly, "כשיגיע ימות בן דוד ויתבטל מלאך המות בעוה"ז מן ישראל" ("when the days of Moshiach arrive and the angel of death is nullified from the world of Israel"). This New Torah will make Hisbonenus not just an aspect of daily life, but a vivid, transformative experience that reshapes reality itself.
YOUR HEART AS THE CANVAS OF TRANSFORMATION
In the liminal space between now and the world to come, your heart isn't just receiving these transformations; it's actively participating in them. Each beat feels like a small but significant victory in the larger battle to uplift the world, inching us closer to a time when the universe will resound with a new song—the divine melody of a world perfected.
We live in a reality that's unfolding, almost blooming, into something extraordinary. Your heart, when attuned to this extraordinary transformation, becomes a vessel for the celestial light that's streaming into our world. It's a dance of soul and cosmos, heart and heaven. And it's happening right here, right now.
