Proverbs: "Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and health to the bones." Chewing honeycomb heals one's bones.
Honey, especially when mixed with cinnamon, can cure a multitude of ailments. Israel is a land flowing with milk and honey.
In the Song of Songs it says that honey and milk are under your tongue, alluding to the deepest mysteries of the Torah.
Try holding a mixture of honey, milk, and cinnamon under your tongue. Then learn and meditate Kabbalah!
The average value of honey (306) and cinnamon (246) is "eternal life" (276, the triangle of 23, "the living one"). Sounds good!
But don't overeat honey. Proverbs says you'll vomit it. The land flowing with milk and honey vomits over indulgent souls of its own goodness.
Bears really do eat honey, they have a sweet tooth. In Hebrew, "honey" begins "bear." If you like the honey of the Torah you're a bear.
"Bee" also begins "bear" (dalet-bet). All 3 words, bear, bee, honey = 529 = 23 squared = "pleasure." They are in fact 3 bears.
"Word" or "thing" (davar), the root of "bee," also begins "bear." Every word you speak and every thing you touch is a bear, a honey lover.
"To cling" (as man clings to his wife) also begins "bear." Bears are good at hugging. "Hugging" in the Torah is mitzvah observance.
The 2 letters that spell "bear" stand for knowledge and understanding, which the sage say are interdependent and which together = Israel.
An additional measure of understanding (an intelligent heart) was given to woman, more than to man. Knowledge, concentration, is more male.
So the 2 letters of "bear" stand for male knowledge, concentrated contact with the object of one's love, and female understanding, feeling.
