Creating Waves of Awareness
I would like to ask you to read some of the story of belshazzar from the bible book of Daniel.
The story of the writing on the wall was beautifully painted by Rembrandt [picture right]
One of the opinions in the Talmud is that the letters were written in this case "vertically" when normally one writes Hebrew from right to left.
How did Rembrandt know, since he was not Jewish, that the Talmud mentions this?
Probably he had an intensive contact with the rabbis of Amsterdam.
It is written that Belshazzar drank a lot at his feast, some 1000 cups from the golden vessels.
Also is written that only he saw the hand on the wall, but all those present saw only the writing.
How astonished was I, when searching in a homeopathic book under the rubric of "hallucinations" for a colleague and saw something I was not looking for especially:
AURUM METALLICUM. [Aurum] Common Gold.
► Hallucinations ; sees dogs, a hand on the wall, etc., mania.
This is the only remedy, as far as I know, mentioned for this most UNUSUAL phenomina: sees hand on the wall
As Belshatzar drank so many cups I wonder if Bore Olam, the Creator, may have used pure nature, which He created himself, to cause Belshazzar to see a hand on the wall.
Maybe some gold got "free" by all the shaking and caused the homeopathic picture of gold in Belshatzar: Hallucinations: sees hand on the wall.
Nobody else saw the hand, only he did, all the rest saw the writing, but this [writing] is not mentioned as a picture of homeopathic gold, just the hand on the wall as a hallucination.
I found this absolutely fascinating.
And maybe we may see also mida ke-neged mida [measure for measure] in this: Belshazzar sinned with the golden vessels which were forbidden to be used and therefore he saw his fall announced by G-d by means of a sign on the wall caused by gold and drinking from the golden vessels.
