Hello from a new member and a few questions
- Hi, I am new to the group and wanted to say hello...
I am hoping to start the operation (still torn between the 6 or 18
month) this year after Passover and so am trying to get everything
in order between now and then. I read through this group's
archives, which addressed many of my questions, but I do still have
a few questions I am hoping someone can help me with:
-I travel quite a bit for my work, so I am trying to determine if it
is acceptable to be away from home for a night or two during the
operation as long as I still do the morning/evening prayers. I know
that during the last 2 months (or 6 months if doing the 18 month
version) I need to be at home, but what about before that? Does one
have to cancel ALL vacations, trips, etc. for 6 (or 18) months?
-In the book, Abraham states that all religious holidays are to be
observed. He specifically mentions the "Feast of the Tabernacle".
I am not Jewish, so I looked this one up, and it looks like the
proper way to celebrate this is to build a tent outside and live
under it for 7 days!. Did anyone actually do this? How did
others 'celebrate' these religious holidays? Alternatively, since I
was raised in the Christian tradition, would this mean I should
follow the Christian holidays (e.g., Easter) instead?
-Lastly, one of the required items is a silk headband with the 3
highest names of God written on it in gold. Short of other options,
my plan was to just reference Agrippa's Three Books since I know he
goes into these names in detail. Does this make sense, or are there
3 specifc names that must be used?
Thanks in advance to any/all who respond.
