All I see in those videos are severely depressed people praying to a freakin´ WALL. A wall symbolizes division to me, don´t know about you. But
really, that is just a disturbing video - religious freak shows and gatherings are not over yet it seems.
And thats because your ignorant about the symbolism of the Temple
The Temple is a Mircocosm of the universe. It symbolizes everything within the universe; the 4 kabbalistic worlds, down the point of the physical. The
temple as has always been taught is built on a point where Heaven and Earth meet; or where the abstract spiritual realm fuses and interpenetrates the
physical. Hence in the book of Samuel when David buys the Temple mount from ornan the Jebusite, its called the "threshing floor". And a threshing
floor is where something raw, like straw, is reduced in size; ie; limited. This symbolizes the infinite expansion of the spiritual condensing itself
to finite dimensions; ie to become the physical world.
The four walls of the Temple, North, East, South and West each have their own kabbalistic significance. The Shekinah - the sphere of Malkuth,
corresponds to the west. Amazingly, the only part the Romans decided to leave intact when they destroyed the 2nd temple was the western wall;
symbolizing the Shekinah (G-ds indwelling presence..ie; just as the sun "settles" in the west, so to is this world, the physical, the spot where his
presence is meant to settle). Thus, when Jews pray towards the western wall, the deeper significance is the meaning behind this symbol. They lament
the loss of his presence in the world. They lament their continued degradation and exile amidst the nations. The western wall is a spot of
supplication. The fact that it still stands indicates that despite the loss of G-ds revealed influence (the 3 other walls) , he also is in exile with
man; ready to burst forth in glory at the end of days.
ol, kiss a wall and pray or bend over and pray to a building thousands of kilometers away. You people should objectively look at yourselves and see
how effing ridiculous it is.
To a profane, surface level thinker like yourself, yes, im sure it does seem confusing.
