Broken “Peace” Broken Vav… Pinchas

Dear Friends, tonight I’m venturing into a new realm, one of the Torah and the essence of the Zohar and how these things are around us all the time.

As we’ve seen last week in NICE France, and just minutes after in the U.S.A. with the police being gunned down there seems to be no hope in sight. For now, I”ll put aside my security discussion to one of the spirit and our collective need to expand our vocabulary and the power of words.

In this weeks Torah portion, Pinchas, there is something very interesting. You see, typically in the entire Torah, which by the way has to be letter and form perfect in ever instance globally, we have a letter that otherwise would render the entire Torah un-Kosher, and that is a “broken vav”. This is as shown in the picture, a fractured “Vav” in an otherwise joined letter in the Hebrew alphabet. The word is “Shalom” which means Peace. It also is used as Goodby and Hello which is a translation from Peace.

The powerful interpretation of meaning at this time in our existance and around the globe, with such violence and hate that seems to be filling the air-waves each minute, is that we must bridge this gap. This broken or gap in the letter Vav is a symbol that we must exercise extra effort to bring these two parts together. You might say join right and left or bridge mercy and harshness and realize that this is the only way to create unity and peace. To add to the illustration, the word disease can be broken into two parts as well, “dis-ease” or if you will, not at ease. If you think about it, when we collectively are not at ease and we allow words that cause division to spread and permeate young minds, we’re creating a momentum that cannot be reversed without a greater degree of effort than that which was used to initiate it, or set it off.

If you imagine a rock at the top of a hill. One little push sends this mass tumbling down with enough force to wipe out an entire villiage. Where as if you recognize that stored potential and ensure that it cannot be easily moved to create such damage, you’ve served the entire village, even though they may not be aware that you have just saved their entire lives and all that came or would come after them. Similarly, we have a duty to recognize that each of us have a duty to recognize hate and people that are in pain and not to turn our heads away from them but embrace them to help steer the potential energy into a positive path.

Another interesting or powerful element contained in this portion or chapter in the Torah, is that also in the first section you have the word or name of “Pinchas” spelled with a very small letter of a “Yud”, smaller than it is normally written in the Torah. This means or symbolizes that Pinchas had a small ego, since the Yud stands for the ego. It in addition is one of the letters that is said to represent all the other letters and the first letter in God’s name. As we see all the Police around the world that are standing between chaos or dis-ease as represented by the broken Vav, we can think that they too are like Pinchas. They are sacrificing their lives for us in their purity of action and effort and certainty. (I’m speaking globaly, nobody’s perfect, but stay with me on the high road here please). It is that simple. They go out there every day and stand up for the rule of law, and to ensure that we have the luxury to drink a nice cup of coffee, spend time with our children, study our religous books, or take a nice quiet walk along a garden path.

So, as we enter this week, I wish that each of us in our respective countries, cities, streets, homes, places of work and worship embrace an extra effort to be sensitive to the gaps that we see in relationships and all around us and do our small part to induce Love, Light, and respect for each other.

I guarantee as they say, with love there is room on the head of a pin for the world to exist, but the opposite is also true, with hate, there is no room on the planet for two people filled with hate. When we visualize that broken Vav as coming together, and the small Yud, we reduce our Ego (The need to be right and take for our selfish desire) and enable healing and love to bridge that gap, thus saving the entire world.

You can do it, I can do it, we can do it. Enjoy your one life you have to live, give a smile to a stranger. Make their day, I’m certain that it will make yours. Sha

Resurgence of an Ancient Honey Bee Primary Healing Method, now in your back yard!

Slight change in post topic, not a typical subject by any means. When’s the last time you thought about being stung by a honey bee on purpose? We each discover things based on our immediate need or from people sharing their own stories. In my case the discovery was what’s referred to as Apitherapy or BVT, Bee Venom Therapy. This may sound totally crazy, but after my personal 13+ years of practice and study this is really something everybody should know about. 3,500 years ago, in the time of the Pharaohs, bee keepers noticed that their arthritic knees and joints would stop hurting and operate smoother following accidental stings from their honey bees. So, that launched a very comprehensive effort to use bee venom and bee products like Honey, Pollen, Propolis, Royal Jelly, Bees Wax, etc. for various healing needs. I like to say to people that this is “God Pharmacy on Earth” given to us to use as we may discover various essentials and uses. Honey for example is the only food that doesn’t spoil when left out or uncovered. This is due to the properties, hydrophilic of honey, it basically dehydrates any bacteria. Honey is also the best skin topical treatment you can have for just about any skin ailment. Try it, can’t hurt, right?

BVT is used for many things and you can learn more about it by going to this web site if you like: . But for starters, if you have rheumatoid, arthritis, osteoarthritis, joint pain from sport stress, pain from scarring after a surgery, multiple sclerosis (MS), nail fungus, Non-essential tremor, or other conditions for example, check into BVT. I have been treating people and myself as requested from time to time, for many of these conditions and others including more serious conditions and find this treatment very effective. In many cases, the results are immediate, such as in the burning and tingling effects of MS, one sting often times stops the problem instantly. In others such as arthritis, it takes time for the venom to dissolve the calcium build up on the joints. (Research studies in the U.S. back this up.)

Mellitin, ( an agent found in the bee venom, (Melittin seems to stimulate cortisol produced by adrenal glands via pituitary gland, similar to cortisone treatments administrated by doctors every day.) is one hundred times stronger than cortisone, and is also used as a fatty lipid for weak myelin sheath locations for the protective coating of nerve fibers. The Mellitin administered locally seems to be used by the body to fill in the gaps and promote normal functioning. Another of the ~ 100 ingredients is adolapin, which is both anti-inflammatory and pain-blocking. In any case, the body is supercharged to heal itself after stinging, which is what is needed in the end to help treat many of these difficult conditions.

Caution must be used of course; you don’t just go out and sting yourself. There is a very careful procedure to follow, and every person is different in their reaction to the stings. Almost every person I’ve treated, including myself said at the beginning of the treatment or discussion, “I’m allergic”. I always say there’s no such thing, everybody is sensitive to a different degree. I can start with an “allergic” person and gradually increase to several stings in two weeks with no reaction. But this is serious and should be done with a well-practiced Apitherapist. Apitherapists exist all over the world and so if you find yourself searching for answers or are unhappy with having a doctor’s knife cut into your body or other chemicals swimming in your blood stream, give this a check. Research a local experienced Apitherapist or do the research yourself, you’ll be amazed at the power you’ll suddenly have in your life for just about everything that you would typically visit your doctor for. Doctors by the way will be totally un-aware of this practice and of course would you rather pay them, then heal yourself naturally. You really have nothing to lose except the pain, and perhaps even save and prolong your quality of life!
