Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak Kook (1865-1935) once said that "Before the world of truth can come, the world of lies must disappear". The rabbis have long taught that the world we live in is an illusion. It is real, but it is not the real world. The real world is the spiritual world that exists in the shadows of this world. It was designed by the Creator as a training ground for humans with free will to experience the consequences of their choices as they discovered a spiritual life in a physical world. Man is both physical and spiritual. The choices we make in this life will determine many things in the real world to come.
The physical body is the vehicle by which we function in this 4 dimensional world. However, who we are is our soul and spirit and only a portion of our higher self actually resides in our physical bodies. This concept was recently popularized in the movie “The Matrix” where there was a holographic construct that people were plugged into and thought was real. Recently scientists have started examining this theory and want to test it (http://news.discovery.com/space/are-we-living-in-a-computer-simulation-2-121216.htm). The Matrix concept is very similar to what some rabbis have taught and passed down for over 3,000 years.
Further the Rabbis teach that at the End of Days, the Creator somehow merges all the various dimensions when all of creation is judged. In this process, the material, 4 dimensional worlds will dissolve revealing the remaining dimensions that constitute heaven (which is the real world). To prepare for this “dimensional shift”, an individual has to detach from the material world around them and bond to the Creator and the spiritual world associated in the other dimensions. If that is not accomplished, the individual will dissolve along with the material world that they cling to.
It is love of our Creator and His truth that is how we detach from this world and attach to the next. Those that achieve attachment to the Creator will see His face in the midst of judgment while those attached to this material world will only see the judgment. The key is summed up in the command to love God with all our heart and to love our neighbor as ourselves. By doing this we are serving God and our fellow man instead of serving ourselves by attaining material things that will soon disappear.
Now is the time to prepare as the matrix is soon to be dissolved. Love God and His word, and live according to His instructions! Believe in the messiah and his soon appearance!
