Power of a Mikva

B"H not so long ago I bought a new watch which I have been wearing now for a few weeks. This Shabos I forgot to take it off before going into the mikva by Rashb"i, until after I finished a whole bunch of immersions - of course having the Kavana (concentration/intention/meditation) of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman, the river that cleanses all stains - when I finally realized and removed it, and did some more dipping. The amazing thing is that shortly after I suddenly realized that the watch has two crosses - the sign of divergence that causes so much suffering to hundreds of millions of people for thousands of years - on it. The whole time it was staring me right in the face, but until it got dipped in the mikva it got away unnoticed. This also helped me to understand some other things going on in my life B"H.

[BTW according to one opinion in Tosfos in tractate Yevumos, even after avoda zura has been abolished it still isn't the best thing to have around]

Great blessings of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!
