Bahir 91

Remember we are still talking about the Zarka or accent which appears on a Hebrew word to give it emphasis. The symbol looks like a tilde. ~

Bahir 91. Why is [this accent] at the end of a word, and not at the beginning? This teaches us that this Crown rises higher and higher. It is included and crowned, as it is written (Psalm 118:22), "The stone that the builders rejected has become the head cornerstone." It ascends to the place from which it was graven, as it is written (Genesis 49:24) , "From there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel."

Commentary: Nothing is too insignificant. This discussion is about thoughts that we sometimes dismiss but that may act ever increasingly as a major source of our direction in life. What we put emphasis on in terms of emotion and our attention does become where we are spiritually in the moment. We may have an idea about having a better life and then we dismiss it as not being possible. This dismissal does not take away this thought. By our dismissal we have placed emphasis upon it. It can then by our faith and calling it forth rise and ascend to become our heart's desire. Like they say in baseball, 'It's never over until it's over.'
