The Essence of God

We do not speak of “Atzmut” (Essence of God) at all. This is because the root and the place of the creatures begin in the thought of creation. Ein Sof  (the Infiniteness of God) pertains to the Thought of Creation, which is “His desire to do good to His creations.” This is considered Ein Sof, and it is the connection  between the Essence of God and the souls. This is God’s “desire to give delight to the creatures.”

Ein Sof is the beginning. It is called “a Light without a vessel,” yet here is the root of the creatures, meaning the connection between the Creator and the creatures, called “His desire to do good to His creations.” This desire begins in the world of Ein Sof and extends through the world of Assiyah, which is our physical world. We can only relate to Ayn Sof as “the desire to enjoy”. Here is the beginning of the engagement with God at the highest levels. it is called “Light without a vessel.”

God’s desire is to do good to His creations.” This desire begins in the Highest worlds and extends through the lowest world. Souls can receive Lights according to what they have corrected and arranged. Thus, the souls can receive light, each according to its ability and nature. Thus there are all these attributes in different souls.

Ein Sof.  is the root of the creatures, which wants to impart them delight and pleasure. It is called “His desire to do good to His creations.”

There is no change in Godliness. This is the meaning of “I the Lord do not change.” There are no Sefirot and aspects in Godliness. The will to receive defines the  “creature” and a “new aspects” they may acquire. Change and growth begins from the place where the will to receive begins to receive “impressions”. One’s speech is aspects, parts of  these impressions. Here with these “impressions” is  begins a  correlation between the Light and the will to receive.

This is called “Light and vessel.” , There is no utterance of action made by  the Light of God  without a vessel,  since a Light that is not attained except in a vessel. Which is prompted by these “impressions” of desire which are Ayn Soff (Infiniteness of God). The Light that expands into our vessels, meaning into our will to receive is what we call Ein Sof. This is the connection of the Creator with the creatures, it being “His desire to do good to His creations.”

Our will to receive receives the expanding infinite Light, the expanding Light is then called Ein Sof. It comes to the receivers through many covering and vessels so that the beings below one will be able to receive it. All the varying aspects and the changes to the Light are made only according to the receiver. Their ability to receive the infinite light defines the nature of the light they receive.  When we speak of different aspects of lights in the many worlds, these lights are in potential for revelation below. And when the receiver attains these aspects in this world here below, they are called “actual.”

Spiritual manifestation is when the “impression” of desire and the attained will come together, as without the “impression” of desire there is no way for  the light to be  attained, since there is no desire to obtain the aspect  of the Light.

This is Based on the Teaching of Rabbi Baruch Ashlag

The well of Delight and Hiddeness

Bo                                                                      Bs”d

In the very beginning of our parsha GOD informs Moses to go into pharoe and GOD than tells Moses that he will harden his heart to his requests. This happens time and time again. One can only ask what is going on ? What is the use of even going in to Pharoe and asking to “let the people go”, if there is not even a chance of Pharoe conceding to his request. Moses went to Pharoe time and time again asking to “let the people go” only each time to face failure. The Aor ha Chyim says Moses must have despaired. From here we can obviously learn a number of lessons. Take to heart that like Moses, even when we go on a mission to accomplish something that is in accordance with the will of GOD. We may find that it may come only after great difficulty.We must serve GOD with joy even if the difficulties we face create situations that could lead to despair. We must serve GOD with joy and not despair. We can see from the occurrences in our parsha that the difficulties we face are also part of GOD’s plan. We can grow from such things that “appear” as problems, by drawing joy from GOD’s wellsprings. Thus negating the despair, as we know that this too is GOD’s will. Through this one learns to illuminate the darkest hour, and how to reach deep into the well of GOD’s delight. When one faces “low tides”, hard times one realizes GOD is blessing through withholding his blessing. By this we grow and our soul reaches to its source in the delight of GOD in its root and source. When we need to reach far above to see the light.

It says “and the people took the dough before it was leavened, the kneading troughs bound in there clothes on their shoulders. And the children of Isreal did according to the word of moses and asked the Egyptians for Jewels, silver, gold and raiment. And GOD gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Sight referring to Chuchmah (Creative Divine inspiration). As when we make GOD’s will our own. Then being joined with it, so to the will of GOD all around us becomes fulfilled in Chuchmah from which the world is created continually which is fulfilled according to our needs.

From this we see when we take our dough, representing our physical concerns and give them less priority then our spiritual concerns when they come into conflict. GOD blesses us in the Physical in more ways than we can imagine. As Yisrael walked out of Egypt in possession of all its physical wealth.

The dough which was to become matza they put in their garments, on their shoulders. Just as we are instructed by the sages to put the Afficomen (last matzah of pessach seder) on our shoulders and then hide it. The eating of the afficomen is called in the seder tzphon (hiddeness). Thus we see when we take our physical concerns as said before and put them aside, as the afficomen is put aside till later in the seder. Then after we are satiated we eat the afficomen which is called in the seder tzphon (hiddeness) then we shall inherit the tzphon (hiddeness) of GOD as described in the song of songs “The cleft of the rock, in the secret of the stairs” reaching to the heights of Godly vision yielding the most profound delight. Thus will be fulfilled again as said in our parsha “And it came to pass on that very day it came to pass, that all the hosts of Yhv”h went out from the land of Egypt. It is a night of watchfulness to Yhv”h for bringing them out of the land of Egypt. This is a night of watching kept to Yhv”h by all the people of Israel throughout their generations.” Thus we will see as our sages say the redemption from the final exile will be like that from Egypt. And may we see the face of our righteous Mashiach quickly in our days.

THE INFINITE WISDOM- A drop in the Bucket

Every Holy Person needs to pray for healing of sick people, barren women and every man’s individual lack. At times becouse of the individuals sins the sadeek’s (Holy man) prayer can be God forbid be prevented from helping the person. Then he needs to pray with all his thought for only the Glory of GOD, raising and exulting GOD’s glory. Then the complaining mouth will be closed. Then there will be to you תענוג (delight) and flow, as the cow wants to give more then the calf wants to suck.1 The Ner Yisrael tells us the Torah contains 22,000 letters, if we spell out each letter we get 600,00 letters. These correspond to the 600,000 souls that received the Torah at Sinai, each letter raises the yolk of heaven. At the beginning of the Tikuney Zohar we learn that the notes of the song of the Torah are “Nashamot” , they are the lights of the intellectual soul. Song itself can kill the wicked, as did the Song of Devorah in the book of Judges. Concerning the secret of this song we learn that the oral Torah inherits the written Torah becoming its Yesod called רשת illumimating below to above so its result is תשרי which is the secret of the Holy name in the aspect of Malchut. It has sealed in it י of the Holy name. Upon the alter was also a name of Malchut הרשת (the net) it being sealed in ה of the Divine name, and Devorah the song Devorah sang is written as ותשר sealed in ו of the Divine name. This is Yesod (Gateway) of the Divine Name. 2 Vowels are “Ruchot” (spirits) lights of the emotional soul. Rabbi Nachman of Bresslov teaches that the vowels are Yearnings. They are drawn to the letters by desire. All forces within us that seem to be try to prevent us from spiritual accomplishments are actually potenial forces to be expressed in the vowel points. There are 9 vowel points cooresponding to 9 “rekia” (firmaments). These also correspond to the problems that hinder us.3 While the letters themselves are “nefashot” lights of the animal soul.4 The main “tikun” (fixing) of Atzilut (world of Emination) is through the notes-nikudim-crowns-letters. These correspond to the  names ע”ב ס”ג מ”ה ב”ן 5 The nature of the supernal light is to rise up to its source.6 The note Zirka kills “klipot”(forces of evil), it lengthens the pronunciation of a word7. It rises Malchut to Bina making Keter to Z’a. The body of Bina is Bina itself, NH’Y of bina is the flow of bina,Teferet is the essence of bina it makes ketter to z’a.8 By Teferet one merits to look at the upper Shechinah which is Bina.9 This is the aspect called “Pelah” (wonder). All aspects of Z’a, which brings forth the emotional soul are united from teferet of Bina. As the unification that is drawing the aspect of ketter is through Teferet specifically.10 Canesset Yisrael (community of Yisrael) is called Teferet that is כבוד (glory), this  כבוד is from Bina.11 Concerning the Teferet of invocation of Divine names the Ramcha’l teaches that in order to work a name a man must remember the name of the illuminary to arrouse its light, and its angel from it who goes over to do its work. The work is the ruling of GOD and the name causes its arrousel. The light of all your learning shines in your “tikunim” filling all the Divine names.12 Love of Yisrael is a segulah (miraculous power) itself to draw into the letters and permutations of Holy names to illuminate and flow by way of avoda (divine service). GOD created the world in His Name, and rules it in His Names.13

The well of Delight and Hiddeness

Bo Bs”d

In the very beginning of out parsha Hashem (God) informs Moses to go into pharoe and Hashem than tells Moses that he will harden his heart to his requests. This happens time and time again. One can only ask what is going on ? What is the use of even going in to Pharoe and asking to “let the people go”, if there is not even a chance of Pharoe conceding to his request. Moses went to Pharoe time and time again asking to “let the people go” only each time to face failure. The Aor ha Chyim says Moses must have despaired. From here we can obviously learn a number of lessons. Take to heart that like Moses, even when we go on a mission to accomplish something that is in accordance with the will of Hashem. We may find that it may come only after great difficulty.We must serve Hashem with joy even if the difficulties we face create situations that could lead to despair. We must serve hashem with joy and not despair. We can see from the occurrences in our parsha that the difficulties we face are also part of Hashem’s plan. We can grow from such things that “appear” as problems, by drawing joy from Hashem’s wellsprings. Thus negating the despair, as we know that this too is Hashem’s will. Through this one learns to illuminate the darkest hour, and how to reach deep into the well of Hashem’s delight. When one faces “low tides”, hard times one realizes Hashem is blessing through withholding his blessing. By this we grow and our soul reaches to its source in the delight of Hashem in its root and source. When we need to reach far above to see the light.

It says “and the people took the dough before it was leavened, the kneading troughs bound in there clothes on their shoulders. And the children of Isreal did according to the word of moses and asked the Egyptians for Jewels, silver, gold and raiment. And Hashem gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Sight referring to Chuchmah (Creative Divine inspiration). As when we make Hashem’s will our own. Then being joined with it, so to the will of Hashem all around us becomes fulfilled in Chuchmah from which the world is created continually which is fulfilled according to our needs.

From this we see when we take our dough, representing out physical concerns and give them less priority then our spiritual concerns when they come into conflict. Hashem blesses us in the Physical in more ways than we can imagine. As Yisrael walked out of Egypt in possession of all its physical wealth.

The dough which was to become matza they put in their garments, on their shoulders. Just as we are instructed by the sages to put the Afficomen (last matzah of pessach seder) on our shoulders and then hide it. The eating of the afficomen is called in the seder tzphon (hiddeness). Thus we see when we take our physical concerns as said before and put them aside, as the afficomen is put aside till later in the seder. Then after we are satiated we eat the afficomen which is called in the seder tzphon (hiddeness) then we shall inherit the tzphon (hiddeness) of Hashem as described in the song of songs “The cleft of the rock, in the secret of the stairs” reaching to the heights of Godly vision yielding the most profound delight. Thus will be fulfilled again as said in our parsha “And it came to pass on that very day it came to pass, that all the hosts of Yhv”h went out from the land of Egypt. It is a night of watchfulness to Yhv”h for bringing them out of the land of Egypt. This is a night of watching kept to Yhv”h by all the people of Israel throughout their generations.” Thus we will see as our sages say the redemption from the final exile will be like that from Egypt. And may we see the face of our righteous Mashiach quickly in our days.
