The Kotel [the Western Wall] is the Bridge.It bridges Heaven and Earth into one central point. It bridges all past experience with all future aspiration into one central point. It bridges the five continents and the seven seas of the globe into one central point. it bridges all humans that have ever lived and all those who will ever live into one central point. it bridges all that's finite with the infinite into one central point. It bridges G-d and man.
Here is the meditation:
1. Take three deep breaths
2. Clear your mind and relax deeply by repeating the phrase, 'Ribbono Shel Olam' ['Master of the Universe'], for about three minutes---over and over again while watching your thoughts passively just as one would watch a movie...
3. Now search in your mind's eye for that central-Kotel-point which we spoke about.
4. Feel and experience how this point contains and bridges-----------
a. Heaven and Earth
b. all of your past experience with your future aspirations
c. all the dry land and the sea on the globe
d. all the humans that have ever lived and will ever live
e. all that's finite with all that's infinite
f. yourself with G-d
5. Now that you're totally focused on the highest and most profound spot and point in the Universe---now is the time to yearn and pray for anything and everything that you want and need in life. Pray even for that which you consider impossible to achieve. Pray with the knowledge that what you are helpless to accomplish---G-d can make it happen for you. Pray with all your heart....
