That night after the lecture, as I was blissfully sleeping in the Chief's "luxury suite," (as he calls it, and I did find it to be very commodious)... I dreamed that wherever you go on earth, there is a square 7' x 7' patch of what looked like "rain" that constantly follows and covers you. That was an interesting dream! I know it's true...
Shalom, Gah gey you e,Blue Otter
Blue Otter's dream is remarkable. The minimum size of a kosher Succa is 7 tefachim by 7 tefachim. Our sages tell us that this is the smallest area befitting for the "Clouds of Emuna" to hover (in the words of the Zohar, tzila demehaimnuta). May we all be worthy vessels of the Divine Presence, amen.
Ok, a few things:
A- How did Blue Otter know Lazer's rain-cover was exactly 7x7? Was there a tape measure in the dream? Did a voice speak to him? I'm not disputing that this may be what he dreamt, but I'm curious about the transmission of information.
B- It sounds obvious, but you seem to be missing it: rain and clouds are not the same. In the same way that wheat and bread are not the same. Some wheat is used to make bread, and some bread is made from wheat, but not all the time in either case. Same thing. Living in San Francisco, I can attest that quite a lot of clouds do not lead to rain. Unless "Clouds of Emunah" also lead to "Puddles of Emunah," I think you may be reaching here just a little.
