    Question for Rabbi YY

    B"H Hi Rabbi, thank you for this morning's Rambam lesson. I resonated strongly with connecting with a student through sports. I struggled with this because I taught in a Jewish Day School and the it was a mixed setting. The boys (5 to 10 yrs) would come up to me and ask me to play soccer with them. Is it appropriate/tzniut to play soccer with these boys? There are also boys older than 10 up to high school in this school and of course, male teachers. What does one do (apart from try to find other kids to play soccer with them)? Appreciate it when you have a moment to answer my question. Thank you and Shavua tov.

    The entire creation consists of items spinning around a central item

    We can see very very far microscopically with modern instruments. In time, we will see yet further. All we see is mostly empty space with particles spinning around central particles in an orbit.  When we examine any particle we see that there are yet further infinite layers of such orbits of particles. 

      The exact same exists with the most modern telescopes in the macro.

      The same set up that is microscopic for us at our level exists macroscopically in the vast cosmos.

      We exist at a certain level of these levels.

       We can see with out physical eyes that this is so with our modern instruments, and will see further in  both directions with better further instrume. 

      If we could see this both microscopically and microscopically all the time without an instrument,  we would see that Divine energy is vivifying all all the time.

      Because we were made with physical eyes in a physical body ar a certain level or plane of all these levels, we couldn't take it. 

      That's why the one time Divine energy was revealed to  all, during the first two of the Aseres Hadibros, we "died" and could take it. So we asked Moshe, who took it easily, to transmit the communication  that was the blueprint., the owners manual, for us.

    "The moment you get it, you have to change"

    100 not yet frum yidden come to a Shabbaton. They are already leaning that way. The speaker presents an argument based on the Kuzari that, historically speaking,  Mattan Torah is true, as true as all else historians believe..

    99 walk out impressed by the argument but don't change.

    1 changes and turns his life (which wasn't bad, but lacked) around completely.

    It takes so much work and it takes so much time

    to see that the Divine Reality vilifies everything by learning these maamorim and chassidus.

    But with LSD or other psychedelics one can see this by just swallowing once!.

    We live in a microwave instant age......

      the answer that chemicals are temporary and external whereas learning these things becomes permanent and internal is the point I wanted to show

        Sometimes those G-d given substances found in nature (and perhaps altered in the lab) can show a person glimpses of Divine Reality.  When the doors of perception have been opened once (or more times), it can have a life-altering affect on a person.   Of course one has to have the proper instruction and knowledge (Torah) where to go with it, otherwise it lacks halacha and boundaries.
