"No one values me, so I cannot value myself". These words M said to me in a vision. I have been seeing so many visions. Little one-eyed snakes, some with eyes along their body. Everyone has so many psychoses. We can't analyse them all. Oh what fools we are! Love and acceptance are all that is required of us. It is not as complex as we think - our part is simple. Torah-fences, yes, but love is what conquerors. All our psychoses are driven by a lack of love, All our fears. All our lack of self-worth. People are trapped only by the need to be loved, just as this pen is useless only because the ink is running out.
Love is the decision that someone is valuable! That is how we start loving! We decide that a person has worth. That's all there is to it. That's the revelation I have got today. And it's crystal clear. Once we decide we are of worth, we begin to heal.
Love is a stream of living water. Water is the key. It has no shape, no form, like the Ruach (Spirit) which is like the wind. It can't actually be defined. Yah'shua never said: "Torah is love". He said: "If you love [Me], obey Torah" (Jn.14:15). Love is there first of all. Water flows through shapes and forms like rivers, but it has no intrinsic shape of its own...until you freeze it. Only frozen love has shape, dimensions, expectations. Torah shapes love without giving it shape because it is like a drain pipe.
Look at waters flowing over pebbles in a stream - it has billions of 'shapes' which is why the sight and sound of water is so therapeutic. Water is a great teacher. It's strength lies in the zillions of weak hydrogen bonds that are constantly breaking and reforming! And the basic unit of water is not, as we know, H20, but H603! It's a triplet! The miracle of water is that it is a dynamic of "holding" and "letting go" - of commitment and freedom. But it is inadequate by itself - it must be shaped by Torah. The river must have a river bed and river banks (Torah), and it must have a goal: and the goal is Christ.
Love connects to our feelings, and our feelings are directed by Torah. Lakes are still but rivers moving, but neither are dead - both are alive. Only ponds stagnate and die because nothing enters into them and nothing leaves. Movement defines water that sustains life, as love in action sustains spiritual life.
Tomorrow is Shemini Atseret, a great day, I think.

"I LOVE this article! Profound and beautiful wisdom. Unconditional love has no condition and thus cannot be measured, just like flowing water...no holding back of itself" (SW, Germany, 7 November 2010)
