After saying certain prayers and observing certain fast days, a Polish Jew made the figure of a man from clay, and when he pronounced the miraculous “Shemhamphoras” (“the name of God”) over it, the clay figure came to life. He couldn’t speak, but he understood well what was said or commanded to him.
The Golem was then becoming far bigger and stronger than any other human, and obviously towering over his own master. For fear of him growing so big and strong one of the letters should be erased, so that the first letter is erased and we are left with “meth” (“he is dead”); whereupon he collapses and turns to dust or clay again.
He had gotten used to his Golem, even grown fond of the creature, and so it happened that he crushed him. Has he crushed you yet…?? Has he brought you health problems yet…?? Has he altered your moods and ways of thinking yet…?? Stress, frustrations, anger, beliefs and expectations are your Golem, are they not??
Quite often, this Golem is left in your mind, nay, in your whole being, just growing taller and stronger, heavier and more intense, just to wreak havoc and poison you without your awareness. Then, one day, you realize you are depressed and unhappy, and you feel a failure and emotionally reactive to anything which you experience.
