thanks for the video-we have been struggling with bedbugs for the past month-it has been sooooo chaotic in the household-I am feeling frustrated -tomorrow will be our 4th trearment- I have been doing my best to see all the lessons here-but I must say that i am almost at the edge of my patience-any more suggestions or guidance would be truly appreciated-Jai

I remember something happening to me, and later on figured out what the message was. I promised to try to improve, and the next day, things were better. It might sound silly to some, but if something won't go away, we have to see what the message is in order to fix things.

Honestly? -- Yes & No

It seems to me that, yes, the message is simplistic in that there appears a direct causal relationship between Act 1 and Result 1, with G-d being the operating agent and tshuva the catalyst. However, the act and result are not specific states, but rather transcendent manifestations of the same, whereby our engagement with G-d is both the operating agent and catalyst. What's bugging me? interpreting prayer as a simplistic tool.

Practical Tools

For settling bite pain and swelling: Glycerol (glycerin), directly. For long-term safe suppression: diatomaceous earth (DE), dust-like microscopic shards of crushed diatom shells, which penetrate exoskeletons. Non-poisonous, doesn't "fade".

Its The name "BEDBUGS"

Thanks "Lori allways alive". Its in the name "bedbugs" - the Messege of "BED" represents the comfort zone of our lives, And thats probebly where we are miscomforting others and thats where we need to do Tshuva.
