how do you say "sorry, no more info" in russian? if i say any more on this topic, i might give myself away to some people. in fact, i think i'm deleting this conversation. sorry.
Let me tell you something I've discovered through several years of having a real relationship to Purim. It's the culmination and unveiling of everything that's happened during the preceding winter/autumn months. It's really not just about being 'happy' -- it's about taking off the veil and seeing what's there, what's grown and what's been accumulating during the cold winter. After going through the Purim experience we're ready to start another revolution of the cycle, moving back to Rosh Chodesh Nisan and into the Pesach/spring experience. I've had Purims turn out not the way I wanted or expected. If you're really lucky though.... you may find that you caught a glimpse of something truer and deeper than you can see at other times. A glimpse of fundamental reality is what Purim really offers. If you're not happy about what you're seeing.... Purim can give you a clearer image of what you want to change...and can expose some untruths you've been taking for reality. It's a strange, awesome and complex gift.
wow! this seems to be a really sensitive topic... interesting...go figure... it seems so simple and then you realize that you've pushed some hot buttons...oh well,'tova'
