My intention is to share fundamental Spiritual Knowledge, Torah Kabbalistic knowledge, and to make this material as comprehendable and comprehensible as possible on both theoretical and practical levels.  Want to show you the tradition of the Biblical Prophets concerning the use of Kabbalistic techniques to reach states of “Ruach HaKodesh” (The Holy Spirit) and “Navua” (prophesy). techniques
ranging from Yichudim [Divine name unifications)  Practices involving Divine
Name invocations and the works of of  “Angels” or “Celestial
Beings” as they are so many they cannot be counted.
There are “sellers” out there who want to conjure up a vague “new-age” sense of mystery and call this “Kabbalah”.

They are putting out “Kabbalah books” “Kabbalah Jewelry,” , “Kabbalah Reiki” etc….. uppermost in their minds is
dollar-grasping

what these folks are offering is NOT “true Kabbalah,”

There are many individuals out there who are
seeking something of spiritual value,

and are being offered nothing of value and are being cheated out of their money and worse they are truly seeking wisdom to ascend spiritually and they may even thing the “fake kaballah” is all there is and they “miss the boat”.

Purely spiritual wisdom and powers of Holiness are NOT for sale , but they are a privilege to get to. If the offering of Spirituality is limited to a offer that can only be attained by Money then by its very nature its false.

especially to day when the world has fallen to  such a low spiritual place

and one can give the wisdom away as a PDF and SAVE LIVES

HORDING MONEY IS NOT WHATS MOST IMPORTANT

In order to open yourself to the requirements of Kabbalistic study . You will need to surrender the “me,” the ego, and remove arrogance.

If this can be accomplished a celestial “Maggid” (Spirit teacher – non physical) will than be able to use your mind to expound and explain to you spiritual concepts . But the arrogant cannot hear !

THIS AINT ABOUT MONEY — THIS IS ABOUT FREEDOM

ITS FREE—ITS FREE—ITS FREE—ITS FREE—ITS FREE—

YOU JUST WILL NEED TO DO THE WORK TO “GET THERE”

BLESSINGS OF SHALOM-PEACE FROM JERUSALEM

 



“Supernal Holiness” and the will to GIVE
April 13, 2010, 7:56 am
Filed under: Kindness, middot, Rabbi Meir | Tags: , , , , , ,

In order for one to have a desire and a craving to cleave to the Creator. one must make great efforts until he acquires a second nature, which is the will to bestow.

When one is imparted by God with the will to bestow, he is qualified to receive the Upper Abundance with it. This is “Supernal Holiness.”

All the flaws come only through the will to receive for oneself alone.

The Creator is the giver and does not receive anything, for He lacks nothing. He gives not because of a want. If He had no one to give to, He would not feel it as a need to give

We must perceive it as a game. That is, it is not that when He wants to give, it is something that He needs; but this is all like a game. It is as our sages said regarding the mistress: She asked, “What does the Creator do after He has created the world?” The answer was, “He sits and plays with a whale,” as it is written, “There go the ships of the sea, and Leviathan (the sea monster), which You have formed to sport in it”.

The Leviathan refers to the souls of the righteous cleaving  having connection to God.

This means  the purpose of creation is the connection of the Creator with the creatures, it is only God’s sport; but not a matter of desire or  need. God has no lack.

It is only playful.

When one acquires , the will to bestow, which the Creator must give. One then is qualified to serve the Creator in completeness !

One who has already exerted what he can to obtain this force, he is considered to be awaiting God’s giving him the will to bestow.

Then one cleaves to the Creator, and considered as having risen to the top.

It is the opposite with one whose work is only in self-reception. One who thinks that he will have reward from his work in heaven or a portion in the world to Come.

It is all about attaining the power to bestow. Rabbi Meir was prayed that wicked people in his neighborhood should die, not because they bothered him  but so that they would not live long enough to receive all their reward for the few good things they did do in this world, and could have then some reward in the world to come. So Rabbi Meir hoped the would die soon and not live long.

Things are not as they Look

Toldot

The parsha begins describing how Yaakov when he was born came out holding on to Asev’s Heel. Becouse of this he was called Yaakov, which comes from the world “akev” heel.

Yaacov saw the big picture. Esav saw a bowl of beans.

In this world Yaakov who is the Jewish people only emulate or appear similar to the people of Asev, the western world which is represented by asev’s heel. This being only a small part of their physical actions. Yaakov like Asev may work in jobs, eat food and reproduce yet only in the outward physical appearance does he do these functions like Asev. The foot represents Malchut. The physical manifestation yet even of this Yaacov only grasps only Asev’s heel, not his entire foot. Only in appearance sometimes does Yaakov perform physical functions like Asev. But in the realm of emotions, thought and needless to say spiritual motivation there is no compare.

This was what the God intended for all the descendants of Yaakov (The Jewish people), that they all should be “spiritualists” as it says in the Bible “ you shall be to me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation.“ (exodus 19). Rather unfortunately this has not been accomplished by the nation as a whole. Many Jews through out the generations have fell into the pit of materialism and have even dug a few more.

Spiritually is awareness and participation in the return of the Divine energy to its source, and the flow of this energy outward giving life animating our world, whether for healing, renewal or just finding a better taste in your food as all good comes from God. All happiness in life is there. The process of returning is also called repentance. such is the nature of the universe. Every thing returns to its root . Which is directly attached to its source. It is to be attached to the Infinite. The Eternal essence of the universe. Which is as a unfailing fountain of life that flows forever.

As to Yaakov the only purpose of being in this world and the underlying cause of all his actions is to serve The God. Thus it says ” And I will make your seed multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give to your seed all these countries; and in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Because Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.” (26:4-5) Thus we must follow in The God’s ways to hasten this blessing.

It says in the Zohar that the world is as a living body. This is evident when we see that when Asev showed complete disregard for his birthright and sold it there was immediately after a famine in the land. It says in Pesicta that it is the job of Edom who is Asev to try to push Yisrael off the Torah path. When Edom disregards natural law founded on the love of their fellow men and makes the world a place of vicious competition “ a dog eat dog world” none can stand. This is why Yisrael must be a light to the nations. As the complete negation by Asev of his source of spiritual inspiration reveals Edom which represents his blood thirsty nature, The God should help us.

In this parsha is described how the Palestinians envied Yitzchak’s prosperity so they blocked up Yaakov’s wells. This envy finally resulted in the king of the Palestinians asking Yitzchak to leave his country. So it has been in our exile. The properity of the Hebrew people is often followed by their persecution. Yitchak dug out the well’s of his father Avraham that the Palestinians had blocked up. He named the first well “Esek” which means contention. This well is said to correspond to the first Temple. The first temple was destroyed primarily because of  idolatry which resulted in contention and division among the Jewish people. This contention eventually split Yisrael to 2 kingdoms. Finally all this resulted in the nations having contention with us and destroying the Temple. The first well corresponds to the lowest level of the soul, the animal soul called Nefesh. Its evil inclination is ‘the desire to receive for one self alone”, to not have regard for others this results in contention. Primarily over materialistic concerns. The 2nd well he dug out he called ”Sitnah” which means hatred. Because he had to fight much with the Palestinians as they hated him over it. This well corresponds to the 2nd temple which was destroyed because of  baseless hatred. The influence of Hellenism divided the people and they developed baseless hatred which is still with us today. This well cooresponds to the emotional soul called “ruach”, if emotions are not directed from the love of God caos can result in the form of “hatred”, the name of the 2nd well. The next well he called ’”rachavot” meaning wideness as in this place there was no strife. The sages say this corresponds to the 3rd Temple. This reminds us that we need to give each other a little breathing room, space for individuality. As in this ”wideness” we can all live together without fighting. Concerning this its written ”they strove not; and he called the name of it Wideness; and he said, For now  Yhv”h has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.” The 3rd well  corresponds to the 3rd level of soul called “Nashama”, the soul of Divine intellect. This is a High level. It comes after one learns first to do the God’s will with the animal soul, their body, their emotional soul by feeling their Divine service in their heart and Finally involving their intellectual soul called “Nashama”. This involves when one makes a concerted effort to learn the depth in the ways of doing God’s will. By this one come to a wideness of consciousness. So the 3rd well is called  “rachovot”. The Sni Luchot ha Brit says that it says “now” in the verse because that the building of the 3rd Temple is in our hands to accomplish. Over the third well they did not quarrel, for the Third Temple will be built by the king Messiah of whom it is said (Isaiah 9:6): “for the increase of the realm and for peace without end,” for there will be only peace and truth in his time. Thus was it called Rehovot, for then will the GOD expand (yarhiv) their borders. So may we see this accomplished now with the end to baseless hatred and the building of the Temple with the arrival of out righteous mashiach quickly in our days.

Change that yields limitless bounty
October 22, 2008, 6:24 pm
Filed under: life, middot, self help spirituality

Know that compassion pushes away depression.

Sometimes it is necessary to brake our nature not just guide it. If we brake our will for His will. He will do the same for us from His infinite Mercy. Blessings come to us from the Will of God. When we change our nature so as to fulfill His will, He can even change nature itself so as to bless us with his infinite bounty. When a person does kindness in a selfless way not imposing restrictions, the blessings they evoke will be limitless from God’s boundless sea of blessings. In a sense one must dissolve themselves to become part of the great whole. Worldly blessings are planted by good deeds. Virtue protects your blessings. Don’t be concerned about the blessings you going to get. Know nature is perpetually changing. God never changes and is everlasting. So its best for us many times to change our attitude. Challenging external situations at times require us to change our attitudes. When we do his will we can receive all blessings that exist in his will. Then you will have power to bless others.  There should be purpose to all our actions. This purpose is to always be involved in the ultimate fulfillment of His will. This is the way of the universe. One must adapt themselves so that in any environment they can attach their mind to that which is most profound. God has certain rules by which he has made this world and by which it operates. Water only runs down hill, unless he rules otherwise. These rules are his will. By following in His way, that which is “tied up” preventing flow of Divine abundance becomes untangled. The dirt on our souls is cleansed away. Lights separated become merged giving life. All things reach harmony as is proper. Then one can suddenly reveal the light of their soul. That was not seen before. The virtue of the righteous person is this wholeness. He doesn’t separate himself but lives merging himself in this universal Wholeness of God. Wholeness of life. He embraces this oneness. When one is one with God, God is one with them. By this all things benefit. Then all will once again will be united the way it should be with God. This is all obscure, yet it is the greatest clarity. You will be able to sense it, when all is right. In our world of limitations, paradoxes contradict and seem to exclude each other. In a place beyond limits they co-exist in harmony without any qualms. It is said “You can’t dance at two weddings”, unless you can be in two places at the same time. ‘Above’ concerns Providence. ‘Below’ is the realm of free choice. One who is connected to God in the upper worlds while still in this world can do this. This all links with the concept of making Divine providence. According to one’s closeness to God, their personal refinement the rules over the whole system and over you in particular change. As the powers and responsibilities of the king’s son differs from that of the palace janitor or one who has no place in the palace at all. Do his will and you will be blessed you will be a winner. You can live a spiritual life free of guilt with all of God’s blessings including healing when needed of your body and soul, wisdom, prosperity, forgiveness and all the wonders we pray for each day. His rules are the formula for true life. Since life was created for the sake of its potential to achieve closeness to God. When man can no longer live for that potential. His life is taken from him. A person who doesn’t want to get up in the morning. If this desire is strong enough he just dies. One must live a life of purpose. Ambivalence ranks high on the self-sabotage scale. This is usually due to a lack of vision a lack of purpose, and the secret desire to let others do and decide things for you. You need always to actively be in control of your life. Its outcome should not be left up to chance. One should always be growing, never becoming stagnant. Growth should be ecstatic, not something routine. You should jump into it. Be the architect of your life its imaginative engineer. One should always be striving to reach a higher level. Achieving greater completion, happiness and inner peace. Refining one’s inner vision is a process of unfolding. It is good to cultivate the disciplines of moderation and self restraint.

Its good to bring people good tiding, then good news will come back to you. One should say what they mean and mean what they say. Truth has no friends, but it is what it is. Based upon truth a person must stand firm as a cedar, even if at times one needs to be flexible as a reed. A living man is flexible and warm. Its a dead person who is rigid, stiff and cold. Which do you want to be ?

VaYalach                                                                  בס”ד

Parashat Va-Yalech mentions for the last time the Torah  “The place YHV”H will choose” (Deut. 31:11). Before the Tabernacle was set up, the high places were permitted, and the sacrificial service was performed by the first-born.  Once the Tabernacle was set up, the high places were prohibited, and the service was performed by the priests…After they arrived at Gilgal, the high places were permitted…When they came to Shiloh, the high places were prohibited.  There was no roof to it, but below [were walls] like a house of stone and curtains above, and this was the resting place …After they came to Nob and to Gibeon, the high places were permitted…When they came to Jerusalem the high places were prohibited and were never again permitted

It says in our Parsha :

“Their children, who have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to fear Yhv”h Elohech”a, as long as you live in the land to which you go over the Jordan to possess.” (devarim 31:13)

This means forever folks, You should know that the sages teach us three things are given on condition, the land of Israel, the Holy Temple and the kingdom of David. ” These are given on the condition you keep my covenant”. The land is God’s, on this condition he gave it to us. It is not an outright gift. Our presence in the land of  Israel  depends on our observing the commandments. 

Moshe said “I am no longer able to come and go, and G-d has told me you will not cross the Jordan” (31:2) This reminds us of the times Yisrael needs new leadership.

In Chupat Eliyahu we learn 3 gifts Hashem gave to Yisrael, but they are received through  yesurim (sufferings). These gifts are Torah, Aretz Yisrael and Olam Haba (the world to come). The  building of the bait ha Mikdash (the Holy Temple) is an inheritance in merit of Torah learning.

There is no free lunch

As said above we must “learn to fear Yhv”h” as “Ratzon” (will) is Atik (the source of delight). Chesed (kindness) is “ratzon” concerning the “avoda” (divine service) of Yisrael. If there is no “avoda” there is caused hiddenness of this Divine will called Chesed. The Nashamot of Yisrael bring out “Dat” (knowledge) from potential to actual by the giving of the Torah. This is called Z’a (Source of the Ruach, emotional soul). It is all arranged by Hashem in his free will to give us all free choice. Thus there is revealed accordingly the power of evil which stands against the  “kidusha” (holiness), so there will be displayed love and fear of Hashem. these are all acts of his kingship. They exist so that we may approach levels of Holiness needed in the service of  Hashem. The “chuchum” (wise man) understands the good  that is hidden. Where ever he is he sees the place of the level of “kidushah” (holiness). The evil is only to teach the good (it will never leave his hands weak !).   Fear  embraces humility and humility embraces “chasidut” (piety). So by fear of sin one gets all these qualities. All the time one is only occupied only  in the simple meaning of the Torah they see themselves  as poor and dead. The main part of the Torah is its secrets. One who has the fear of Hashem without chuchmah (Kabbalah) will not reach the “midot” (attributes) of “chassidut” (piety). Fear of Hashem is Chuchmah (Wisdom that inspires), turning away from evil is Bina (understanding). The beginning of the mitzvah of fearing Hashem is to know that “elokenu” (our God) is the ד”ו parzufim  (masculine and feminine aspects of Hashem). These are the Written and Oral Torah by whose ruling we were taken out of Egypt.

Bina (understanding) is אשר who made man in צלם (supernal image) of  מ”ה (name of 45/source of Z’a-ruach). If a man gives his heart and dat to the fear of Hashem, behold the letters of  יהו”ה cleave in  his heart. One who merits this has no lack. This is what it means “Make Me a migdosh (temple), and I will dwell in them”..  One sanctifies their heart so  as to have dwell in it יהו”ה. But if his heart lacks fear  of Hashem, the letters of יהו”ה are far  from him.  This is the greatest possible lack.

It’s said that one person may take another’s portion in gan aden, so all are not the same. One serves from fear while another from love ,  but booth are called sadeekem. One is greater than his fellow in humility and the fear of sin. Our parsha contains the name of another parsha in it “Mekaitz”. In the verse  “Moses commanded them say, ” At the end (“Mekaitz”) of 7 years, at the time of smittah during the holiday of Succot” (Deut 31:10) May this connection be revealed with the coming of the Mashiach quickly in our days !

Go for the dream
September 28, 2008, 9:30 am
Filed under: aretz israel, emuna-faith, freedom and ethics, middot, righteousness, social justice

On Rosh Hashanah one must consider how they can become a better person in the year to come. It is the day of “judgment” of the whole world. Make judgments concerning your self, on how you can become a better person. Do not make it so that Hashem has to force you to become better. Consider matters as kindness, righteousness and justice. Much is in the balance this year. In your Rosh Hashanah prayers let your heart hope for the Great things. We need them. If all you can imagine is almost nothing that is all you will get. If the prayer of your heart is for the greatest dream the world can have, how great it will be. The Prophet Amos says :

“Those who turn justice to wormwood, and who leave righteousness on the ground ” (5:7)

The Radak explains that judgment is perverted for the rich. Making judgments for the poor like wormwood, which is bitter. We hear about a lack of justice very often from our Prophets as its prevalence is great and its result catastrophic. Concerning ” who leaves righteousness on the ground ” this means they totally disregard it, as it does not matter at all. The Radak cites a verse from Jeremiah ” For I am  YHVH who practices kindness, justice and righteousness on the earth. In these things I delight says YHVH “(9:23).  Thus man should follow suit and not cast kindness righteousness and justice on the earth, but should hasten to pursue these traits. The prophet Amos continues with instruction for us that ends with great results:

“Hate evil and love good, and establish justice at the gate, perhaps YHVH ELOHY TSVAOT  will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph “(5:15)

This is pretty obvious one should find evil disturbing thus resulting in him hating it. Such a state does not leave one quiet and unmotivated, but then one feels forced to act and make things better for all. Since he loves good he pursues it over all else, as this is his love. This love pushes him as it says to establish justice at the gate. He wants to fight for social justice and against oppression as he hates evil and loves to see good. One needs to understand what true ultimate good is and love it and not accept things as they are now, but one must see what is the good that the God desires as Rabbi Kook explains That the great dreams are the foundation of the world. They are manifested on different levels. The Prophets dream as it says in the Torah ” I speak to him in a dream ” (num. 12:8). The poets dream while awake. The mighty thinkers dream of perfecting the world. All of us dream about the time ” YHVH will return the dwelling of Zion ” (Ps. 126:1). The crudeness of conventional life, which is completely immersed in its material aspect, removes from the world the light of the dream, The splendor of its wide horizons, it’s ascent above ugly reality. Thus the world is in convulsions with pain engendered by the destructive toxins of a reality that is lacking all brightness of the dream. These pains are sufferings of love. They will purify the world. Then it will be clear how grave is the error of those who boast of reality in its defective state. As then the dream is left uninhabited, this is a revolt against reality. This force of limitation is truly the most substantive truth of existence. Think deeply over these words, as it is by these things that Hashem will show mercy to his people. Even if they have sinned against them exceedingly, perhaps Hashem will be gracious to the remnant if they will return to him.1 It is not enough to only mourn over the Temple and commemorate our proud History as a nation.  We must go on again striving for the excellence of the dreams Hashem gives to us, to regain again, only this time in much greater force and forever the Glory of Hashem in Yisrael.

Why things are wrong in Israel
September 26, 2008, 12:24 pm
Filed under: Charade, middot, righteousness, Rosh Hashanah, Torah Politics

Natazavim                                                   Bs”d

The parsha begins “You stand this day all of you before  Yhv”h Elohech”a”. The sages say the day refered to here is Rosh Hashanah.

As every word of the Torah is precious. One can find so much meaning to its voice. Its written  ” Not with you alone will I make this covenant and this oath; But with him who stands here with us this day before  Yhv”h Elohech”a and also with him who is not here with us this day” (29:13-14). The Torah is Eternal as hinted by ” also with him who is not here with us this day”.

Its further written “you will enter into covenant with Yhv”h Elohech”a, and into his oath, which the Yhv”h Elohech”a makes with you this day. That He may establish you today for a Nation to himself “. This is what it is to be the Nation of Israel. The nation of Hashem. Who here makes a covanant with us. Concerning this Covenant a few verses later Hashem reminds us  “It should come to pass, when one hears the words of this curse, that he blesses himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the stubbornness of my heart, Yhv”h will not spare him (18-20). But now standing in front of the Jewish people are noble men but they are not educated in Divine wisdom-Torah Knowledge. Many even naked of knowledge of Torah law. Only with knowledge is one given free choice. One would not know that the creator has forbidden growing two different types of plants close together unless one read this in the Torah. Then we know what to do.  Without this knowledge there is not free choice. Without knowledge of the Torah one ends up with a different kind of life, so the generations changed. Most of us have heard stories of our religious ancestors. But a lack of Torah knowledge can rip away faith in the Divine God, the giver of the Law from generations. Creating a Jewish culture with different values not necessarily focused concerning piety, holiness, or respect for Torah, which is their heritage. Jewish youths found delight and closeness to God meditating on the Midrash (Ancient Jewish spiritual texts). When the House of learning Torah was the community gathering place. Today instead they gather at basketball games and parties.  Yet the mitzvoth are not profane or ordinary, but they are Holy purifying and sanctifying the Jewish people revealing Godliness and also in all worlds. In a generation where every one wants to be part of the fad and fashion and no one wants to be left out. It is difficult to live as an individual with the uniqueness and distinctiveness of the one God and one people. Thus there is intermarriage, indifference and assimilation. Yet there are those that see Hashem as omnipotent and believe it is under his laws, values and concepts we must love. Others can be found among our people that do not believe in a God that is effected by man. It will be between these and those that the future of the Jewish people and The State of Israel will be decided. Will Jerusalem be a reflection of the Heavens of Holiness; this cannot be accomplished by secularism alone, nor by impassionate religion resulting from spiritual starvation, creating a comfortable convenient Judaism. Which is something like playing  ” Charade “. The parsha concludes saying ”  love  Yhv”h Elohech”a, and that you may obey his voice, and that you may cleave to him; for he is your life, and the length of your days; that you may live in the land which Yhv”h swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”

So let us all , as in this parsa accept upon ourselves the kingship of Hashem this RoshHashanah, and become the nation of Israel speaks  of here in our parsha so that we may see the words in our parsha fulfilled “. And Yhv”h Elohech”a will put all these curses upon your enemies, and on those who hate you, who persecuted you.” (7:30) With the arrival of our righteous Mashiach quickly in our days.



Donkey men versus spirituality
September 16, 2008, 10:16 am
Filed under: Chuchmah-Wisdom, donkey, learning, Matto"t, middot, redemption messiah

Most of the posts here I wrote , this is from a friend, It has some great stuff

bs”d

In last weeks parsha in the Zohar, Ki Tetze, there is recorded the
words of those who came to teach R. Shimon bar Yochai, including the
souls of Moshe Rabenu, Eliyahu ha-navee, the heads of yeshivas
“upstairs”, and Hashem himself was present! and concurred! :

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

3. Yet sages, WOE to those who eat the chaff and ears of corn of the
Torah, THAT IS, WHOSE TORAH IS MIXED OF GOOD AND EVIL LIKE CHAFF AND
EARS OF CORN THAT ARE A MIXTURE OF FOOD AND KLIPOT. Such a man knows
nothing of the mysteries of the Torah, but only light and weighty
precepts; the light is the chaff of the Torah, NAMELY THE REFUSE, and
the weighty precepts of the Torah are wheat, WHICH CONTAINS BOTH FOOD
AND REFUSE. CHET AND TET OF WHEAT (HEB. CHITAH) ARE THE REFUSE AND
HEI IS GOOD. THIS IS THE SECRET OF the Tree of Knowledge of Good and
Evil
, AS THE SAGES SAID THAT THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL
WAS WHEAT.

4. It is not the custom of the King and the Matron (Schenah) to ride
a donkey (Heb. chamor), NAMELY THE LITERAL UNDERSTANDING (HEB.
CHOMER) OF THE TORAH, WHICH IS WHEAT AND THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF
GOOD AND EVIL AS MENTIONED. Instead they ride on THE SECRET OF THE
MYSTERIES OF THE TORAH. This is the meaning of, “you ride upon your
horses, your chariots of salvation” (Chavakuk 3:8). For Malchut (the
Schenah) is not treated lightly so as to have the Queen ride on a
donkey, and even more so the King, for it is no place for commoners
and servants, THAT IS METATRON THAT IS CALLED A COMMONER AND A
SERVANT, whose way is to ride a donkey. This is why it says of
Messiah, WHEN YISRAEL WILL HAVE NO MERIT, “humble (Heb. ani), and
riding upon an ass” (Zecharyah 9:9).  Ani stands for the Mishnah
orders of Eruvin, Nidah and Yevamot, THE INITIALS OF WHICH FORM ‘ANI
(ENG. ‘POOR’)’. The rest of the orders of the Mishnah are comprised
in these, WHICH INDICATES THAT AS LONG AS ONE DOES NOT KNOW THE
MYSTERIES OF THE TORAH BUT ONLY THE REVEALED TORAH, ONE IS POOR IN
KNOWLEDGE AND RIDING UPON AN ASS, WHICH IS THE ASPECT OF THE TREE OF
KNOWLEDGE
OF GOOD AND EVIL. THE HOLY ONE, BLESSED BE HE, is not
considered a King until He rides on His horse, which is the
Congregation of Yisrael, NAMELY MALCHUT (the Schenah), ACCORDING TO
THE SECRET OF, “I COMPARE YOU, O MY LOVE, TO A MARE OF THE CHARIOTS
OF PHARAOH” (SHIR HASHIRIM 1:9), WHICH IS WHOLLY GOOD WITHOUT ANY
EVIL.

5.  . . . . . . .  The first man, who did not keep the glory he was
given BY EATING OF THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, was
brought down to eat together with his donkey, WHICH IS THE ASPECT OF
THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL and he said TO THE HOLY ONE,
BLESSED BE HE, I and my donkey shall eat from the same trough.
Issachar merited this donkey by being called, “Issachar is a strong
ass” (Beresheet 49:14), BECAUSE HE SUBDUED THIS DONKEY CALLED A
STRONG (HEB. GEREM) ASS BY BRINGING HIM DOWN THE STAIRCASE (HEB.
GEREM).

14.  . . . . . . . .  THEN the Holy One, blessed be He, spoke: “And
they shall spread the cloth” (Devarim 22:17), and the parchment of
the Torah scroll unfolds, and they shall see that it is written in
it, “Hew for yourself two tablets of stone like the first, and I will
write upon these tablets the words that were on the first tablets,
which you did break” (Shemot 34:1).

15. Immediately Elijah rose with all the heads of the Yeshivah and
they blessed him. And ELIJAH said TO THE FAITHFUL SHEPHERD, Sinai,
Sinai, it would have been worthy for us to listen to your words and
be silent, yet with permission from the Holy One, blessed be He, and
His Shechinah, I wish to say something to you, in your honor.  He
said to him, speak.

16. ELIJAH opened and said, Faithful Shepherd, the Holy One, blessed
be He gave this bride of yours, NAMELY MALCHUT (the Schenah) to
Abraham to bring up for you. And since he kept her she is called his
daughter. This is what is meant by the saying that Abraham had a
daughter whose name was ‘Bakol (lit. ‘in all’)’. By her he observed
the whole Torah even to the Eruv Tavshilin (an action allowing one to
cook on holiday for Shabbat). This is the meaning of, “and kept My
charge” (Beresheet 26:5). And he brought her up, as written, “And he
brought up Hadassa” (Ester 2:7). And the Holy One, blessed be He,
blessed him for her sake, as written, “and Hashem had blessed Abraham
in all things (Heb. bakol)” (Beresheet 24:1). He brought her up with
every good virtue and was charitable to her. He raised her to
greatness, with the quality of kindness (Chesed) of Abraham. His
house was, for her sake, wide open to do kindness to all the people
of the world.

17. Since he was kind to her, when Abraham’s children were exiled
because of their many iniquities in Egypt, the Holy One, blessed be
He, said, ‘Faithful Shepherd, go and be kind to him who did kindness
by you, since I gave him your bride, WHO IS MALCHUT, to raise with
good qualities’. And he raised her BY DRAWING HER thirteen attributes
of mercy implied in the three words, Vav Hei Vav, Aleph Nun Yud, Vav
Hei Vav, which are THE INITIALS OF Vav, since the 72 names are
comprehended in them AS THE FIRST OF THE 72 NAMES IS VAV HEI VAV, THE
MIDDLE ONE IS ALEPH NUN YUD AND TOWARDS THE END IS THE SECOND VAV HEI
VAV. 72 IS the numerical value of Chesed, with which Abraham overcame
the 72 nations, WHICH ARE THE SEVENTY NATIONS, ESAU AND ISHMAEL.
Through your bride, NAMELY MALCHUT, he had a special property through
the 72 names AFTER MALCHUT RECEIVED THEM, and he overcame every
nation and tongue.

24. The Faithful Shepherd rose and kissed him, ELIJAH, on his face
and his eyes and blessed him. And he said to him, may you be blessed
by the mouth of the Holy One, blessed be He, and His Shechinah, by
each of His attributes and His ten Sfirot and all His names and all
the heads of Yeshivah and all the angels. And they all answered and
said Amen. And the Holy One, blessed be He, and His Shechinah
acknowledged his blessing. Elijah, rise, open your mouth regarding
the precepts with me, because you are my assistant in every aspect,
for it first says of you, “Pinchas, the son of Elazar, the son of
Aaron the priest” (Bemidbar 25:11), BECAUSE PINCHAS IS ELIJAH. Surely
he is the son of Aaron, my nephew, as written, “and a brother is born
for adversity” (Mishlei 17:17).

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

In each generation Hashem brings back to planet earth a different
(lower) level of the sparks of souls.  That is already changing!,
bottom has been passed, more and more big Neshamot are coming to this
world.  The difference between generations / level of sparks of souls
is reflected in the ways and attitudes of those on two legs.  In this
generation of adults, the way includes extreme ego.  For example its
usual in yeshivas that they obsess upon (not just learn) the lowest
of the low, which shoe to put on first, which shoe lace to tie first,
etc., and also that great ego builder, memorizing the countless rabbi
alephs said in the name of rabbi bets and spewing them forth = I’ve
memorized more than you = I’m better than you = success = ego.

Better to remember the words:  fear only Hashem, love Him with all
your hearts and all your Nefesh, go in all His ways, pray to Hashem
with all your hearts and all your Nefesh, seek My face always, etc
etc.  Not much room (nor need ) for ego building IF we follow His
words instead of the obsession of this generation.  Let us pray that
the “learners” and all His children will come quickly to place proper
emphasis on His words, and the secrets in His words including seek my
face always, and love him with all your hearts and Nefesh.



The Energy of Divine Glory is in Righteousness

   Ki tetze                                                                    Bs”d

   It says in the parsha. “You shall not have in your bag different weights, a large and a small. You shall not have in your house different measures, a large and a small. But you shall have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shall you have; that your days may be lengthened in the land which Yhv”h Elohech”a gives you. For all who do such things, and all who do unrighteous, are an abomination to Yhv”h Elohech”a. ” (25:13-16)

 The prophets say much concerning social injustice and economic oppression. Isaiah says:

 

                            “Woe to those who join house to house and field to field, they draw close till there is no place, and you will be settled alone in the midst of the land ” (5:8)

          They create a situation where there is no where for the poor man to live, as Rashi explains.  This type of action is robbing the poor of their land. They allow themselves to act in this selfish way by denying that the land actually belongs to Hashem, and that the poor inherently have a right to a place to live as explained by the Radak and Ibn Ezra. By joining field to field the small independent farmer is put out of business by large commercial industrial farming corporations. In safer Eliyahu, Eliyahu ha Novi says that becouse of interest taken on houses, and stealing fields from this there will be orphans and widows in sackcloth.1 Rashi teaches us that this commandment of having “a perfect and just weight”. Is in The Torah next to the commandment of destroying Amalak. So to teach us Amalek comes when Yisrael is not honest in their Business practices. The Magid of Koznitz teaches that if your “yetzer hora” (evil inclination) says to you “teshuva” (returning to Hashem) of sinners is of no value, be happy with the pleasures of this world. Live only for today, who knows what tomorrow will really bring. Your “yetzer Hora” tells you things as these so to make you fall into sadness over your service of Hashem, making your heart bitter toward things of the כבוד Hashem. Know that it is becouse of these things that that Hashem told us to “remember what Amalak did to you on the way”.2

 

   “Remember what Amalek did to you by the way, when you came forth out of Egypt;

How he met you by the way, and struck at your rear, all who were feeble behind you, when you were faint and weary; and he did not fear Elohem”e. Therefore it shall be, when Yhv”h Elohech”a has given you rest from all your enemies around, in the land which Yhv”h Elohech”a gives you for an inheritance to possess, that you shall blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; you shall not forget it. “(25:-17-19) 

   Yuhuda is Givurah, but the seed of Yisrael  is rachamim. Becouse of this they need to draw upon themselves the flow of “din” so their hearts will remember to war with the nations. By the sword Amalak will arouse great jealousy in Yisrael. This is all necessary as again the nature of Yisrael is “rachamim” not “din”, its not their nature to war as their nature is peace. It’s for this same reason Rabbi Akiva as said before will recognize his enemy from the past. These things are necessary to arouse the anger needed that will allow vengeance to be taken on the enemies of Yisrael.3 Concerning this it must be said that the Palestinians are not our baby that we have to nurse along so to give birth to a Palestinian state. They are an enemy state that daily shoots rockets at us, so should be dealt with appropriately. we wage total war when attacked. This is no game. One must never forget that the Ramba”m teaches in his Mishna Torah that the Jewish people when they enter the land of Israel are responsible then to fulfill 3 mitvot (laws) : Appointing a king over themselves, to wipe out the descendants of Amalak and build Hashem’s House (the Temple).4 With our righteous Mashiach quickly in our days.
