A month ago I asked Jehovah for help, the ancient god of the Jews. His Menorah has been in my west window ever since. I'm not religious and know it's childish, but it gave me a sense of peace, security, and humility. If you've got a holy Menorah, why not use it? Somehow I feel that Jehovah will prevail against my enemies, if I have any, and I won't have to do anything. Hope so. If I must do battle, it will only be at Jehovah's command, because I wish nobody harm. Seems like an air-tight philosophy!
So I just walked around the block at ca. 2:00 a.m. with Jehovah's staff before me (my 6' walnut walking stick) and all was calm & quiet. I didn't see any seas that needed parting, nor did I stumble due to my trusty Rayovac flashlight. There are a few limbs down due to a minor blow earlier. Nary a creature was stirring except a large groundhog which nosedived into a street drain-hole when it saw me, and a friendly neighbor's dog got a little exercise for its vocal cords. Soon hushed.
This is my second such adventure this year, on the spur of the moment, whenever the time seems right. The best way! Maybe I'm destined to become a mystic AND a philosopher because 2 is more than 1. Also each take about 75-80 years to accomplish, hopefully sequentially. At least I'm 1/2 way there already, 1 way or the other. Right Jake?
Jacob taught me that all numbers are holy! At least whenever I asked him about a number, he always said it was a holy #2. Made sense to me. Jake was a real person, I kid you not. I don't know if he was a Rabbi but he was always polite and neatly dressed in a suit similar to Hasidic Jews, perhaps a dealer in diamonds. He had a hole in the middle of his forehead that looked like someone had drilled through into his brain. I assumed it was a lobotomy but don't really know. It didn't matter because I respected his reverence for numbers.
HEBREW - ENGLISH BIBLE - MECHON-MAMRE
Exodus Chapter 3 שְׁמוֹת
I AM (THAT I AM) (Yahweh=Jehovah) chose a humble shepherd, Moses, to create the Ten Commandments.
I AM sounds like the Hebrew name Yahweh, traditionally transliterated as Jehovah.
There are seven names for God in classical Judaism.
In math the highest set is All=One(1).
Is that one of the seven?
Om Shom Absalom!
