Been noticing some songs that have underlying meanings about G-d, spirituality, existence, hope and purpose. There are people who sing these songs but fail to decipher the message from its lyrics. …

You see but you pretend that you don’t see
You cover your eyes to all the truths that are in front of you
There is a light and you have looked at it
For a moment you gazed but you turned away your face
Stepping back and once again you stand in limbo
You stay and you touch the darkness
The light is behind you
But you deny it
Cause you shake every time
Questions flood your mind
There is somewhere you are supposed to be
There is something you are supposed to do
But you turn away every time it beckons you
You linger in the questions and the confusion
Clarity seems frightening to you
But what do you know?
You long for the secrets and the meaning
You long for the truth
So why do you keep turning your back?
Someone waits for you to return
To be brave and look at the light
You have to stop running backwards
Live and keep moving forward!
Some people find themselves caught in the middle of certainty and uncertainty about the existence of The Creator. They are afraid to surrender to the realization that they’ve reached and they decide not to make another step. They end up becoming neither an atheist nor a believer, some call themselves agnostic. I feel somehow they have reached a degree of awareness but they become scared and they don’t have faith. It’s sad but it’s true. I think that is why some of them just express it through their songs. They linger in the confusion or divert their attention just to get rid of the “existential angst.” They don’t want to deal with it because they are just scared and some of them don’t even know it.
Violate a mitzvah for the sake of another and for life.
–There are times when one has to violate one mitzvah to save another person’s life. It is permitted and it is mandatory. The depth of this rule has just dawned to me clearer than before. The spiritual benefit that many others can derive from your violation of that mitzvah, brings life to them, it brings more light compared to what your individual mitzvah can do so long as the intentions are pure. Your transgression can pull a degree of darkness, yes, but it will faint in comparison to the light that the others have created through it. I can consider it as an act of self sacrifice so long as it’s genuinely done.
A superior mind creates in an instant and an inferior mind comprehends it slowly
Like how creations take time to unfold in the Creator’s instant utterance
Like how human beings can never comprehend the Creator nor contain The Maker’s essence
