Life is a Gift, Your Body - Borrowed

Updated: Dec 10, 2022



Divine Code for November 21, 2022

Today: Page 298


Topic Here we have... -- ...the sea bed.


Murder is: 1 - A attack on the Divine image present in the world.


Our task is to make His Divinity more public, and thereby confirm His Kingship.

So that:


the earth will be filled with the knowledge of G-d as water coverings the sea bed (Isaiah 11:9) and that


in establishing a world under the government of the Almighty all the children of men will invoke Your Name that in turning to You from only those who are wicked on earth all the world's inhabitants will recognise it and know that before You every knee bows and with You every tongue takes the oath. Before You Eternal our God, one will kneel and fall down and one will honour Your glorious Name and all will accept the yoke of Your Kingship.(Aleinu haShabeach Prayer)


2 - A attack on a fellow physical person. This includes non-physical attacks that cause emotional damage.

It also includes harming one's own body or soul even if it is voluntary.


G-d considers the latter worse than the former. We can learn this from two stories, namely the story of the Language Confusion of Babel and the Flood of Noah. The former was a profocation of humanity to challenge G-d - with G-d only confusing their speech - and the latter was the result violence that included bloodshed, theft and sexual crimes.


Our soul and is body is a precious gift from G-d. Our bodies are only on loan and what you borrow you return undamaged as much as possible.
