Some people see what the world shows them. The blessed ones see what the world conceals.
Blessings and curses can be equated with vision and blindness; opening one’s eyes is the former, closing them is the latter. When we enter the Land we must build a Temple, a pure sanctuary where the Holy Presence is most at home. There we come to come close. False visionaries – read: true blindness – must be destroyed, as must fake gods. Kosher is assigned. The Mitzvoth, connections, of tithing, dedicating, giving, and supporting are locked in, as are the sabbatical year and the three holy pilgrimage festivals, Passover, Shavuot, and Sukkot.
