The Golem.

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. 

This was The Golem, and his new master used him as a servant to do all sorts of chores.  On his forehead, he wrote “emeth” (“truth”).  Every day, this Golem regained weight, incredible muscle mass with strength and rapid stature or height; and this happened as a result of all the food and drink his master gave 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. 

But this Polish Jew hadn’t done this because he had grown fond or used to his Golem, and now the creature was too tall and strong to reach his forehead and erase the first letter.  So, in terror he ordered his servant Golem to take off his boots, thinking that when he bent down he could reach his forehead and erase the letter. 
And indeed he did just that, he successfully erased the letter leaving just “meth”; however, the whole heap of clay fell on the Jew as the creature melted and crushed him.

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??

All this intellectual process of overthinking and creating more problems, worries and expectations, always wanting to be in control–all this brings down your immune system, affects your nervous system, and it distorts the way you think and even feel.  Can you even see reality with your mind so clouded and darkened…??

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.

So perhaps you should see the Golem you carry before this happens and you get crushed.
