Zohar Portion Emor Notes

Emor – means speak to the Kohen, to the priests, tell them such and such. This portion talks about all the holidays. It was the connection to the holy temple, the mishkan, that the kohanim (priests) used to do the work for everyone. The work of the kohanim/priests, is an important concept representing the channel for all of us. In all of the holidays we speak of the work of the priests.

In the Omer, there is a huge opening for us that we need to understand. There is a whole preparation for us to become like priests. The Zohar shares many secrets –

Verse 3 of Zohar Emor – we should remember that when we read from and hear the Zohar, we are hearing the words of Rabbi Shimon, all the kabbalists that studied the Zohar, the light revealed from Moses and Avraham, the actual light that spoke through the kabbalists. As pure as we can be, the priest is the channel of light. We are not just reading the Zohar or “some words,” we are making a connection.

The Zohar asks, “what is the good that you are concealing, for those that have awe, for those that have admiration for you?” How valuable this supernal light is that is called good? The creator saw that the light was good – and that light was concealed light.

(note: at this point my computer crashed, so a few minutes of the class were not transcribed - unfortunately, only the first 6 minutes were recorded on ustream)

There is a story of Elijah the Prophet – there was a time where the king was very negative and wanted to kill the entire nation. The only way he would spare the nation, was if Elijah the Prophet would come and eat a meal with the king. But the king didn’t keep kosher, so how was it going to happen? Elijah the Prophet went and had a full meal with the king –but how? It’s because he connected to the level of Binah, where there is no bad, good, kosher, or mitzvah. For the sake of helping the people, Elijah did it. It was a very noble thing to do, but Elijah was connected to the light of Binah. When we get to that place, there is no separation.

In our reality, there is some kind of a torture we are going through, to understand. We need to understand that we need to get to a place where we can reveal concealed light. We want the light that is not usually revealed, to be revealed in our life. The gift we are receiving is the Zohar – many people think that the Zohar is just a book, but the fact is the Zohar IS the concealed light. The “real” light is concealed for the righteous ones. It has always been said that the Zohar would not be revealed until the time of Mashiach – the real gift we have is to be revealed through the Zohar.

So why would we want to be a priest? Because we are not at that level, if we get connected to the Zohar, we can bring that light when we are at a much lower level than if we do the preparations to become a priest. The problem with the Zohar, because it’s a book, its hard for us to believe that it’s the concealed light. But since it’s a book, it’s truly concealed. The teaching of Kabbalah is not just the idea of gaining facts and information, but rather to connect to the 99%, the spiritual realm of our reality. We can read the Zohar and think we are reading amazing secrets. Trying to understand the Zohar is only ego. We need to connect with our heart. The high priests connect to the concealed light – but we can all connect to it. Because it’s written in the Zohar, that’s why we can all connect. It has been channeled by the light for us. There is good light that emanates through the Zohar for us. Written in a very fascinating way – the concealed light works in a way, where the more of us think we are connected, that’s how much we are really disconnected. If we think we understand something, that’s how much we are disconnected. If I know without a doubt in the Zohar there are tremendous concealed secrets, we need to get excited by what it is that we don’t understand. The real light is how happy I am to know that I really don’t know what the Zohar is. In the moment that I don’t have a way to describe or express my experience, that is the moment of light and truth. If I try to describe what I know, I am trying to describe my ego and how much I am disconnected.

What do we know about our limitations? The priests represent peace. If you see yourself in the future, what would you see in 5 years? Most people would tell you they see themselves with kids, a bigger house, a great job, business, relationship, friends; usually what they see is about status in life – but let’s think about ourselves without egos, fear, insecurities, and limitations, with no agenda – now, how do we see ourselves? What will we look like? How will we react? We have limitation in the way we see because we have fragmented goals. If we look beyond time space and motion, if I know the future is now, if I know that we are coming from the light which is perfect and where we are heading is toward the light, eventually we will all be back with the light, basically the future is now, we all have something special and unique – sometimes with limitations or blockages. Sometimes we don’t find the solution to situations, or we don’t’ have a solution or answer to an argument. If we try to figure out what is the answer or solution, we are disconnected –the fact that we are thinking about a past experience or futuristic solution, we are not connected to the now – the answer is now, the future is now. Connect to the righteous within – the Zohar is the bridge between us and the future. The Zohar is the way that we can not do anything with our own power, we need the assistance of the light. the Zohar is the delivery system for the light, that is our gift. Even when we learn we need to remove our ego, the removal of the ego is not the goal, it’s a vehicle to connect to the light.

Its written that we all can be the priests. This is the time (during the Omer) that the 24,000 students of Rabbi Akiva were killed in a plague that happened because they lacked human dignity. We certainly cannot compare ourselves to his students; on a spiritual level, each of his students may be the equivalent of 5-10, or even more of us. But with a little effort we can tap into so much more. Today we can all represent those channels of light. We just need one moment to open those channels.

Today we connect to the students that died because they could not work together and receive from each other. The study of Kabbalah is based on the 3 column system. Right, representing sharing and being the cause; the left – receiving – being open to listen, asking for help. In order for us to connect to the central column we need to connect to the concealed light.

Why can’t I receive help when I know I need it? Many believe it’s a problem with the left column, but it can actually be due to problems with the right column. I have problems with receiving because I have problems with giving, the only time I can receive is when I am sharing. I need to be able to understand that I am a no one, I need to be open to receive help.

How did kabbalists keep themselves open to receiving light? Only because they never thought about receiving for themselves! The Zohar comes from the corrected world, from the Binah, any time we connect to the Zohar we connect to concealed light. if I am not getting light from the Zohar, it’s because I am not sharing.

Verse 46 – when the light is revealed, it is only revealed in a place with a vessel. We don’t’ understand – when a person has a blemish/damage, it is written the light can dwell only in a place that is broken, only in a broken vessel. If I am always trying to connect to the light, and I say, I want to build a vessel – what is the idea of the vessel – building a vessel piece by piece. The idea of building a vessel – see the amount of judgment in the vessel, how negative/needy/jealousy, disgust yourself, break your vessel, that’s what will lead to building of the vessel. The light needs a broken place to dwell. If we connect every day to our negativity, our blockages, our silly logic, our calculation every day, we have to try to see every day another spark of that. It’s internal work, not something others can see. If I want to help someone, and I come from that place, I need to bring myself to a place where I am not righteous. I must connect to my filth, entitlement, ego – I must be open to remove a little bit more of this negativity, blockage, smallness, difficulties, in life – that’s what makes it special and closer. We can really effect change in a big way.

Verse 28 – The high priest could really do what he was doing only when he did everything with happiness. The happiness and excitement of doing that work will draw the pieces. The Midrash has a story about the giant Goliath, demanding an opponent from among the Israelites. The boy David offered himself, and they brought him before King Saul – David was a young shepherd and a small kid – People asked, what makes you think you can slay a giant? David said that wild beasts used to come and attack the herd, and once he even killed 4 lions and the creator helped me and I was able to kill them. Saul was impressed. David said maybe the same light from the creator can help me perform miracles for all of Israel. Saul gave him his armor and helmet, but it was too big for him – but the light made David fit the armor, and Saul realized that David would be the next king. David gave the armor back and said he would use his own weapon. Saul was jealous. The lesson that we can learn from this story is that if I do any work and I know I am not complete, and I know I have limitations, and I know I am not yet righteous or the high priest, as soon as I do something to reveal light, whatever I am lacking, the light will fulfill the rest. We need to understand, when I need something to complete a mission, the light will give me whatever I need to finish the mission. Even if I am not complete totally, but when I do things with happiness and I am excited, the light will give me everything I need to complete the job.

Verses 74-76. As below, will awaken that above. When a person is awakening an action from below – where we are, we awaken an action from above. If I am doing the correct action from below, a little action of holiness, we awaken so much more from above. We can awaken a power from above. Awakening an action of sharing and mercy. (n.b. - Benjamin recommends reading these verses).

Verse 129 – know how much we don’t understand, that is what we should be excited about. In the Malchut there is always darkness, we don’t see everything, we are so limited. When we bring or create an small opening in the Malchut and open a small gate for the light to come in, the light will force its way in a big way. This week until at least Lag B’omer, try to open a small or little hole to allow other people to enter into your heart. Try to find openings in other people’s hearts. I want to feel a small opening for a friend of mine, that will allow the light to come into my heart. I want to look for a small opening, and allow yourself to come in. be excited that not everything is revealed to you, be excited by how hard it is to get the concealed light revealed to you. Ask yourself, why is that person here for me? What is the connection on the soul level that wants to allow you to come in. The person and the klippoth come to our life, we always find a reason why not to connect to a person. But maybe this week, this time, it will be different. Anytime someone engages a conversation or asks for help. Maybe its’ not about what they are asking you, but sometimes ask your heart is there anything extra I can do for you?

Message from Yael Yardeni

Hi Everyone,
We have a very intense week ahead!

First of all, many of you guys have asked me about retrograde Mercury! What are we to do? Stay home or stay silent???

Here is a good and proactive way to use the energy of retrograde Mercury….

The Planet Mercury represents the reasoning mind, meaning the way we think, the way we process information, as well as all forms of communication.The good news is, in this time of Mercury being in retrograde motion, we are able to erase and correct . Certain things that were lost will be found, certain things from our past will reemerge, all for the purpose of correction, or as we call it in Kabbalah, Tikkun.

Remember, Mercury, currently in the sign of Taurus, will be retrograde from April 18th through May 11th. Taurus being an earth sign, this is a great opportunity for us to make practical changes.

On April 28th the Moon will be full, and situated in Scorpio! This energy will pinpoint all the control issues we still have, as well as helping us uncovering certain annoying truths about ourselves!! The sign of Scorpio being the most inquisitive of the whole zodiac, it’s as if we were given a private investigator!

Scorpio is also connected to money and business, therefore, around the full moon, we need to make sure that all is in order in that domain, otherwise we will be in for unpleasant surprises. Just call the bank and find out if all is under control!!!!

The cosmos is indeed helping us this week to bring law and order in our lives, so lets take great advantage of that!

On another very positive note, the end of this week will see a very positive cosmic window and spiritual opening: on Saturday night and Sunday, we have a very special connection to a gigantic Kabbalist by the name of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yohai ( the author of the book of Spendor/ the Zohar). This will be a great time to sign contracts or move to a new home, since the energy of his anniversary breaks all the heaviness of this Taurus month!

If you are next to a Kabbalah centre, make sure you are there for a connection Saturday night, otherwise just light a candle and meditate to let this amazing light enter your lives!!!

Have a great week everyone!

Love Yael

Notes from 4/26/10 Malul Call

In order to tap into such an enormous amount of Light, we need to prepare. The more I prepare myself, the better my connection. Consciousness is everything. I need to study, yes, but also want to find someone this week that I can connect with them. Not because of any obvious reason (i.e., they’re talented / smart / pretty) but just because they are human and I know that without connections / without connecting to others, I cannot achieve anything in this life. We know about the students of Rabbi Akiva that died during this time because of no connection with each other / lack of human dignity for each other. We need to remember that this week and connect with others.

Another part - sometimes we like to feel good among our friends by putting others down but this week, think about times when you put others down and try to fix it. Think: “in the future, what can I do differently?” For example, if I know a person does not have a skill or know an answer then why would I ask them to do something or ask a certain question especially in front of others? i can't embarrassed people or cause them shame

Third part - if you think you love somebody / want to love somebody, confront them and tell them if they have done something wrong. If you are afraid to say anything because you are scared of what they will think, it is superficial love. If you really love them, you must be where you can share.

Fourth part - there are 4 levels in this reality, one relating to when we speak which brings us to the concept of “speak to a priest”. When we are using our voice / speech and using it for unnecessary things, we limit the amount of energy. If someone in your eyes is highly connected, you won’t talk to them about little, mundane things or nonsense so you want to see everyone on that level. This way, our consciousness remains spiritual (about sharing / the Light) and we speak from there - “speak to a priest” – so we elevate others when we speak. Ask yourself: “do I bring peace when I talk or do I just talk nonsense all the time?”

Notes from 4/22/10 Consciousness Class

Taking our life to the next level starts with consciousness. Everything starts with consciousness.

We know that this week there are 2 portions, Acherai Mot and Kedoshim. Having 2 portions gives us a 2nd level of unity, since we receive 2 portions of light. Another portion enters to reinforce a higher level of light. The light is always trying to give us as much as possible. We get the light of immortality and holiness this week.

In Acherai Mot – we know the light reveals secrets to us. We should learn a completely different lesson each year as we get deeper and to another level, we should be at another way of seeing the story. “after the death of Nadav and Avihu.” The idea is “after the death.” What does this mean? Its where we need to be, “after the level of death,” meaning removing the aspect of death from our life. Death cannot be part of our movie/life/relationships/friendships/business.

The 2 souls of Nadav and Avihu were equivalent to the entire souls of all the Israelites. Yitzhak Levi of Berdichev explains that they were drunk and they entered the holy of holies, and then they died. The kabbalists explain – how can such high souls make such a mistake? They felt a level of light they thought was the light of immortality, so they thought they needed to get drunk since it was Purim – huge amount of light revealed, light of Binah, they thought it had already come, the end of the correction. And they needed to reincarnate at higher levels, later on, as Pinchas and Elijah the prophet. Imagine how careless and low our consciousness was however many years ago – when we were there, a person that does a negative action, how much negativity can that person spread? How much light can be revealed? Not really that much. But when a righteous person does a positive action, there is so much light revealed in one action; the same idea applies when he falls. When a righteous person does a negative action, he creates so much negativity for himself and the rest of the world. Kabbalists that use tools of the Zohar, mikveh, etc, to protect us so that we don’t fall, because the consequences are so much higher. “The sons of Aaron died because they didn’t ask Moshe.” When a person takes drugs or alcohol, they get immediate gratifications, and immediately bring light of Binah to a vessel in Malchut and get burned. If a person wants to elevate to a level above where they are – Nadav and Avihu got closer, they burned, they couldn’t handle it, and they short circuited; they went to directly plug into the light. If they had at least asked Moshe, no matter the answer, they would have at least had protection. A person that wants to elevate to a level above his own narrow place, study by himself, and not with his teacher, through his teacher, not asking permission from his teacher, “he must die.” This is tough to say, but we know that death is not just physical death. To attain another spiritual level, I have to connect through my teacher. The idea is for us, even asking questions, while its not easy, it helps us to stop; whether or not it’s the answer we like to hear; some people don’t like to ask questions because they know they are not going to get the answer they want to hear, or they ask questions in a way that they think will give them the answer that they want. And that’s not really “plugging in” and awakening the light. Most of us need to learn to reconnect to our teacher. When I am by myself and not plugging into the pipes and channels, I am causing death = spiritual death. You won’t be able to elevate. In order to elevate my consciousness, I need to understand I cannot just elevate by myself; in our life today we are not at such a spiritual level that we can elevate and connect any other way.

There are spiritual actions that we do that we feel so much energy from them, and there are actions that we stop doing, because we don’t feel like we get energy from them anymore. Some people love the mikveh, others do not. Even in our personal life, not just spiritual tools, there are things we like and things we don’t like. The Zohar says, when you do things you don’t enjoy and get no pleasure, because we do the things we don’t feel like we get energy from them, we will then be able to receive cleansing and clarity from the things we do in which we feel connected. By stretching and doing things that are uncomfortable or we don’t’ feel we get energy from them, we create more of an opening for energy from things where do feel we get energy. For example, if I don’t feel connected with Shabbat or other tools, we create limitations in the things we like to do. I like morning connection but not the night connection. The things I stop doing because I don’t like them, block the light that can be revealed from the things we like to do. Whatever it is, do it for the sake of cleansing to reveal light in something we do like to do. When a person starts doing something and likes to only do one thing, those of us that are leaders and want to inspire others, need to give people one small action to do. When you do one thing good, you feel good, and then you will do the next action. Just by doing one small action, that will bring us to do another small action. Eventually the person will be connected to the light in a much greater way. When we find that I need to know how to be more humble, if you continue doing spiritual and positive action, as you get closer to the light, you see how low you are, and how humble you can become; then the light can dwell on you.

Rav Ashlag shared a lot about this week’s energy. Must of the wisdom of Kabbalah is based on this week – in fact the Zohar says this week includes all the energy of the torah that we need in our life.

This portion Acharei Mot – after death, whenever there is any negativity, a person is not happy and has low energy. But there is another secret – this portion of Kedoshim – being holy – comes to bring and to draw to our life, to add holiness; when we connect its only for the sake of drawing to our life more holiness. What does holiness mean? Kedusha – holiness, separation not from others but separating a holy energy – like a surrounding energy that is separated from everything else. Kedusha is separation from the desire to receive for the self alone – any time a person separates himself from the realm of the desire to receive for the self alone – the small picture, small thinking. Shabbat is holy because it is separated from the rest of the week. Sometimes we need to separate ourselves from our environment if it is not so holy, for the sake of bringing holiness. A person should separate himself from the craving of the physical world; that is how we can draw holiness, so that our thoughts can become holy. You need to take yourself out of the physical world – out of the attachments, need and craving for 1% needs, by doing that you draw holiness and you become holy. There are righteous people whose soul is so powerful, and for them it is easy to separate from the 1%, they don’t have as much attachment to the physical world. But most of us are good people, but we don’t have as much power to achieve those levels of light and holiness by ourselves, so we need help. Include yourself in a holy environment. A single candle can add himself to a group of candles, and add to the equation of making a lot of light. That way can be included in the holiness that can be revealed that I wouldn’t otherwise get if I am by myself. When the light wants to come to our life, Rabbi Shimon said, when the light sees that he wants to be revealed in this world and enter someone’s life, but sees the person is not so holy, but is an evil person – meaning a person always connected to his desire to receive and who is not yet a transformed person – when the light wants to come but sees how much that person is into himself – the light will never look at us as a negative person, but regards us in such a way that wants to trickle down in a lesser way. The light shrinks himself to enter your life. Only through mercy and forgiveness. How many of us that really want to share with someone, will jump immediately and judge the other person and tell them what we think and all the negative things that we think about that person, rather than deciding if there is a merciful way to connect and convey our message. Is there another way for me to deliver that message in a merciful way? By doing that we elevate ourselves to behave like the light.

From Tiferet Shlomo – he says when a person works on himself and really prepares himself, when he works on his desire to receive for the self alone, awakens himself to really do more spiritual work – for the sake of revealing what is really connected to us – we are drawing holiness. But what we want to really understand - when a person in this world does a small action of holiness – meaning we do a small separation in our own level – when we awaken in our life, in the lower world, a small action – if you do a small separation between us and the physical world, between us and the desire to receive for the self alone – we decide not to be angry in order to separate ourselves from that need to be angry for the sake of bringing holiness into the world – if you separate yourself and you become holy – “I will have to come and dwell on you, and give you so much more holiness.” Just a small separation from the desire to receive for the self alone from above there is so much flow of holiness – a cloud of light and protection comes to a person. You can’t connect to the world of solutions and answers if we keep doing little negative actions. No matter how disconnected we were, how negative we were or are, a person will separate himself a little bit, a little bit holy, not just because we want to be holy, but because that selfish action we are about to do will prevent us from drawing down so much holiness from that cloud. We can draw down so much holiness from small actions because we want more holiness in our lives.

Rav Ashlag shared with Rav Brandwein – letter 13 in Beloved of My Soul – Rav Brandwein shares with the Rav Berg about Kedoshim. He speaks of Matan Torah, the gift of the Torah – dealing with the creation itself. The entire creation has an intention, a meaning – the entire creation was for one purpose, for us to become holy and for us to know that there is a creator. What does this mean, for us? Our job is to publish and to spread, to advertise, to market the creator, because that’s what the creator wants, that we will spread his name. Why? Why does the creator need us to spread his name? If the light is so good and can help everything in our life, we want to share it with others. When you study Kabbalah and you realize how great it is and you get the depth of it and get really excited you just want to share it. First, realize that if I am bringing that holiness into my life, I can attract more people to feel that light, and then more people will be attracted and will want to know about it. This light is the cure for all chaos, and a cure for death. The more people realize this the better position we are all in. in The Gift of the Bible, Rav Ashlag says the creator came to the Israelites and told them, if you will hear what I am saying to you and you will keep what I am telling you, you will become holy and protected, you will separate yourself from all other nations, and you will be a kingdom of priests, and you will be a holy nation. Rav Ashlag says, similarly the creator didn’t tell them anything that they should do. If my friend comes to me and asks me to do a job for him, he needs to clarify what is the job, what I will get out of it. We need to understand that when the creator asks us to do a certain job and asks us to keep all the commandments and separate ourselves from the desire to receive for the self alone, you will be priests and holy. But if there is no explanation of the job why should we take it? The idea of becoming a priest – is only for the sake of sharing. Only a person without the desire to receive for the self alone and can love anyone whoever they are -the results would be becoming a holy nation, and draw down light from the cloud of light that surrounds us. When you separate yourself from the desire to receive for the self alone, with a consciousness of wanting to draw so much more holiness to my life, it’s enough to draw so much more holiness. To the degree that I become a priest, I become holy. It’s very hard to separate yourself from the desire to receive for the self alone when you are by yourself.

Notes from Consciousness Video

One of the most important things one can do for himself, if you can understand how important the study of Kabbalah is, you should be awakened to do more effort. Kabbalists have never limited the amount of secrets they share in one lesson. We limit what we receive. If our consciousness is not there, we won’t be able to capture the secrets being revealed. That is why it is so important to begin each day with study.

Look at the story of Cain and Abel. Cain was a very giving person – tithing and sharing. Many of us are sharing people, we open our pockets and give when asked. From that point of view, Cain was sharing all the time but yet he was disconnected from the Light. Why? Because that is only one aspect. We need to put effort into understanding what the Light is / who the Creator is. We must share with understanding otherwise it is limited. How did creation come about? My ability to reveal more Light is limited if I don’t give with understanding how the dots are connected / what the Creator is all about. I’ll ask you to do something this week – study something very deep every day for 20 minutes so it awakens desire in you. Try to study for the sake of sharing the secrets that are revealed to you, with someone else. I’ll share a secret now that I learned earlier: we have two portions this week. Why? The one percent reason is because it is a leap year but the real reason, as the Kabbalists explain, is that we need to awaken unity. So, unconditional love can be awakened this week for all our lives / all the world, in unity. Sharing / giving is a way for us to create unity. The reasons why angels can do work on a spiritual level is because they have the ability to give / receive one to another. For us to be able to awaken the angelic force / unity within us, we must be able to receive / accept another human being. Start with the sharing, with the deeper study this week about what the Light is all about.

Zohar Portion- Tazria

Tazria Volume 15 Verse 72

Rabbi Yosi asked, whence do we know that? Rabbi Chiya said, from the words, “Open rebuke is better than hidden love.” THE MEANING OF “OPEN REBUKE IS BETTER” IS THAT if the rebuke is done with love, it is hidden from people. So when one rebukes his neighbor with love, he must conceal his words from people, so his neighbor shall not be put to shame. If his words are public, they are not with love.

The Zohar in this section speaks about rebuke with love, which in simple English is “criticism with love.”

One of our obligations—as friends, as people who love each other—one of our responsibilities as far as helping each other is to really be able to help another person see the missing piece of the puzzle – to be able to allow another person to see what is wrong with him, to see what his Tikkun is, to see what he is doing wrong.

The whole idea of being in this world is not just to be alone, by ourselves. Kabbalistically the whole idea of being on the mountain and meditating forever and being one with the Creator is not what life is about. We all came from one soul. The only way we can make the journey back closer to that one soul is if we associate ourselves with other people who are part of that one soul … which will allow us to see a bigger piece beyond just ourselves, will allow us to interact with other aspects of that one soul, and will allow us to see things that our ego would never be able to see otherwise.

One of the main parts of the whole idea of expressing true love and true relationship is the ability of others to see what we are ourselves blind to see. Nobody in this world can see by himself all of his own issues. As much as we try to reduce our ego and be honest – about our blockages, about our selfishness, about our insensitivities, about our laziness, about our complaining – we were designed in such a way that as righteous as we are, we need another set of eyes—at least one other set—to be able to observe what is going on.

It is so amazing sometimes for me, personally. I think I am on the right path and I am pushing myself and I am stretching myself … and then a friend will tell me something that is so obvious—about my insensitivity towards somebody else, or how my ego was pretty clear when I attacked somebody, or if I tried to help somebody but they felt that ego—and only after my friend tells me about it can I see it clearly. On my own, by myself, even though I try to question myself, I am blind to seeing it. We were designed in creation not to see our own Big Picture … and that is the reason.

When we are not open to allowing another human being in our life, at least one – a friend, a teacher … somebody whom we love and somebody who loves us – if we do not open ourselves to that person so we can see our filth, if we do not open ourselves to allow that person to talk and to tell us things, then we will never get there in life. We will be blind.

The idea is that if our goal is truly to ascend and to grow and to gradually get closer to that idea of true love and true connection—and no matter what, it is going to happen eventually; if not now, then in a few lifetimes—then why do we need the pain and the suffering that eventually will get us to open up to other people? Would we not want to proactively open ourselves up to other people? Would we not want to do this proactively … even though it is painful and the ego does not like it?

We need some people to see what is going on with us. It is not that every day that we need to ask, “Please tell me my issues, my Klipot.” It is not every day that we need to have psychotherapy, but we do need to create an open line of communication … and where there is love, we need to hear what is wrong with us from other people who can see better than we do.

Think about it. We see so many issues with the people around us, but they are so blind and they do not see it. Why do WE see it? Because we are outside of the box, so we can see things clearer.

We have to be open to receive proactive criticism, but – as the Zohar tells us – only when it comes with love … because when it does not come with love, then it is the ego of the other person. He might be telling us something that he sees which might be true, but he is involved with his own agenda to criticize us, or he is involved with his own agenda to get back at us, or it is only to feel better about himself because he is going through some hard times. So, we need to be open to receive proactive criticism, but only when there is love between the two people.

Proactively, when we are in the role of criticizing another person – for the sake of helping him – we need to really question ourselves many times: “Am I doing it with love? Am I doing it because I care about that person? Do I have a little agenda? Am I a little down? Do I feel better about myself when I criticize because it makes me feel a little bit more spiritual as a result?” Or can we honestly answer ourselves: “No, I am saying it because that is my role right now. It does not mean I am above the other person. It does not mean that I am better than the other person. It does not mean that I do not have even worse issues and worse Klipot and worse blockages. It does not mean that.” We also need to ask ourselves: “Do I have to say it? Or can I wait and say it in two minutes … or half an hour … or in a day?” When we HAVE to say it, it is one of the indications that we are not totally coming from the right place and with love.

As the Zohar says, when our criticism does not come with love and true care and even with true feeling of the pain of our friend’s ego, then no matter how nicely we say it, it will be uncomfortable. If it does not come from that place, then it is going to cause embarrassment and shame … and then the other person will have to deal with another issue which was not the main issue we were trying to share with him. For example, if we try to share with him about his insensitivity, but we do it in a slightly rude way – such that other people could feel that we are criticizing him – then he will worry about being embarrassed in front of other people and he will not be open—his heart will not be open—to truly get what we are trying to share. And actually, the Zohar tells us that whenever our criticism does not come from pure love, not only is it not going to help that person, but it is also going to add judgment.

Kabbalah teaches that in every aspect of life, something that could potentially reveal a tremendous amount of Light could, at the same time, cause a tremendous amount of harshness and negativity if it is not done with the right consciousness.

Two main points:

1. We HAVE to open ourselves for a line of proactive and loving criticism; if not, our growth will be blocked and limited.

2. When we are in the role of giving criticism, we need to question many times: Are we doing it from the right place? Because if not, then we are going to harm the other person and we are going to harm ourselves.

Malul Call 4/12/10

This week is very special – like every other week. We have the new moon of Taurus which gives us the power of healing / the power to destroy negativity within. Starting this week, Zohar portions / secrets help us to reveal many secrets. This week’s portion talks about when a person has leprosy. This disease is terrible / unpleasant but what you learn from Kabbalists – you realize people who were on a much higher level of spirituality suffered from this thing. How can it be if you are a righteous person? Shouldn’t something better come? If someone is on a spiritual level, they have awareness. When you study, you become more aware so you have more protection, yes, but as you start being aware, you are less aware of your own faults. You think: “I’m doing ok”, “I’m righteous” – that is leprosy. You think that you are protected but the point is you need to be able to see that if something wrong is happening, it is a miracle to protect us from falling from the level we are at. It isn’t something bad. Leprosy came because they were missing something in their consciousness, so they were grateful (for the leprosy). This is why it is important to tell your teacher things so they can tell you when you are wrong. The righteous people get different types of diseases for the sake of awakening consciousness. When awakened, disease is gone. If something negative happens during the day (not, God forbid, leprosy) - something like somebody didn’t listen to us / didn’t call us, we need to take it as a miracle as it takes us out of our comfort zone. Why a miracle? The Light is becoming more aware of our work. We’re having some bumps on the road – the Light is telling us we can do a little bit more here / there. Kabbalists explain that when a person does any spiritual action - uses the tools / sharing / volunteering / charity - each action creates spiritual clothing. Spiritual clothing is another layer around each of us, a protection layer that becomes more powerful energy around a person. Action relating to physical work is different from spiritual work - you must have the right consciousness when doing volunteer work.

When things do not go my way, it is a miracle. When we see life this way, we will see the Light more in our lives. Try to study and understand the Zohar, this week. This will bring more healing into our lives. The effort you put into the study will awaken more Light / spiritual clothing. Try to be in a New Moon connection this week at a Centre or online or else, meet with your teacher.

Malul Call 3/22/10

It is a week of more cleansing. Cleansing what? We need to remember that next week is Passover. I recommend study / reading / talking to your teacher so you focus more on what you need to be doing / thinking next week.

This week, remember we’re about to enter a great Light - “Light of greatness” – we need to remember that. We’re always focused on our smallness. We need to think big, bigger even than ourselves. We enter into a time this week when Kabbalists explain that we need to think about a concept – who is the Creator of this reality? Think from a parent’s point of view. How many kids really know who their parents are? How much does a son / daughter know a parent? Not much really. We don’t know them. Our kids don’t know us. We know the action that a person takes, that’s how we know a person, not by who he is. We judge by what they do, which can be for the good or bad. How do we judge the Creator so we know who he is? Obviously, as we learn in Kabbalah 1, we will always have a limited perception of who He is / what He is about which is why we study Kabbalah. Each one of us needs to think about this. What is the Creator about? How is His work? Like He is our parent so “who is our parent?” The second part of it – when we do spiritual work / acts of sharing / use the tools / go to class / go to Shabbat without knowing a little more about the Creator, those actions are religious actions. Religious actions are limited. It is like idol worshipping. We think the Light wants us to pray everyday / be good everyday and that might be good but it is only through our mind so it is limiting. When we think about the Creator within our own mind, we put limitations on the Creator / on what He gives.

Look at the universe / at nature – how amazing it is. Take the time to focus not only on what’s not ok but what is ok, what fascinates you. Think about unexplainable / illogical things – that’s where the Creator is hiding. In our minds, we want to think about the way things should be. That’s us not the Creator. Each one of us needs to have a real relationship with the Creator. Start to know Him. Any time you do any spiritual action this week, involve the Creator. Do it because when we come into Passover next week, we’ll only be thinking of ourselves and we don’t want that. We want to think about what the Light wants to share / what it’s all about.

Malul Call Mon 3/15/10 Chodesh tov

You know that tonight – actually from now – is the new moon of Aries. It is the beginning of the year. Try to participate in the New moon event to learn about the next twelve days. It will help you to tap into the energy to help you control the signs of the zodiac. There are many interesting things happening this week but I want to share something interesting from another speaker. The question to ask yourself before Passover: how the person you would like to be will do the things you are about to do.

We all need to know what we want to be and how we want to be. How would that person behave right now? This week, we’re entering into a new book that speaks about sacrifices, which Passover is about sacrificing (really of sacrificing my own ego). The idea of Vayikra – Creator calls Moses - if you take the letters of Vayikra is like mokir, which is appreciated. the Creator shared with Moshe how much he appreciated his work, the sacrifices that he made. Most of us don’t see / hear the Light telling us how we do because we want someone to tell us. If we sacrifice ourselves / our desire to receive for the self alone then we need to know, at that moment, the Light appreciates so much our willingness. Even if the words do not come down from heaven at that time. The idea is to sacrifice / to bring closer the Light into my life by sacrificing my desire to receive for the self alone. Kabbalists also explain that we would like our spiritual work to be permanent. Spiritual work can be two ways, for example, the beginner spiritual person does work in a temporary way which is like renting an apartment – you can always move. Now is the time, though, to BUY the apartment so I am living there. It’s the same way we would like to take our work and make it permanent. We make a decision to do work of sacrificing my desire to receive for the self alone not just for one week but permanently.

When we see the person we would like to be, see without the desire to receive for the self alone. How would that person be now in every area of my life? At the start of this year, it is important to know:
1. The Light is approaching Moshe for all the sacrifices he is doing – that is for us – whenever we sacrifice our desire to receive for the self alone, we can bring the Light closer to our lives. The Light appreciates me and respects me when I do so.
2. Any time I sacrifice my desire to receive for the self alone, don’t do it temporarily, do it permanently. Step by step but permanent change. Make a permanent decision to do it based upon the person I want to be in the future but do it now.

I encourage you to see Michael Berg’s lecture – learn the consciousness for this month.

Friday, March 12, 2010


Last Shabbat we read the portion Ki Tisa which ended with Moses coming down from Mount Sinai with the second set of Tablets. The Tablets need a worthy place in which to be contained. The Tabernacle that was constructed before Moses first went up to Mount Sinai to receive the Tree of Life technology were not fit to hold the Tablets. The original Tabernacle was constructed with the consciousness of the Erav Rav.

In the portions Vayak’hel and Pekudey we again construct the Tabernacle according to the specifications in the portion by craftsmen who were pure channels. The people chosen for the construction of the second Tabernacle were chosen because they had an endless desire to receive and share.

On the face this is a story impossible to enjoy: re-reading all the details on how to construct the Tabernacle. The deeper meaning however is of great importance. Here we learn how to purify ourselves, reach our individual potentials, develop sensitivity, become a pure channel of the Light: Connect to the Light for an everlasting, endless, blessing for each and every one of us to bring to our families and extend to all of whom who come in contact with us. We learn how to endlessly maintain the blessings so we welcome all people who come into our presence with a smile on our faces. We desire to become that person others ALWAYS come to when they encounter an obstacle in their connection to the Light and require assistance, guidance. We also learn how to learn.

To accomplish this we studied Vayak’hel sections 61, 62, 96, 97, 180 and 223 of the Zohar. We then re-visited Ki Tisa section 54 and connected it to section 28 of Vayak’hel.

Section 61:

We need to be able to break the feelings of obligation and responsibility. Any time someone or something comes your way, learn to look upon the person or situation as a gift from the Creator, an opportunity for you to reveal Light. Never ever see things as an obligation, requirement or responsibility. See everything enthusiastically as an opportunity to grow and transform. Bring excitement to the situation because of the grand opportunity top reveal Light, not because you “have to,” but because of an endless desire to reveal Light.

What is transformation? How do you see the same person, whether it is your spouse, your children, your mother, your father, your boss, co-worker, etc. when you see them all the time? Do you always see them as the same from one day to another? Every time you see someone, you must see them as a new person. If you want to open doors in your lives, you must see the person as if that person is a new person each and every time you see them. The Ari, Isaac Luria, explained in his book of intentions every part of the second a completely different energy exists.

Every second a different energy, a different aspect of the Light, is revealed. This is the key to unlocking the door to your heart.

Satan is always there telling you that you have “been there, done that,” experienced this all before. Satan tells you that nothing is new, you have encountered this person, this same situation times before and it is nothing special, different. When you encounter the same problem over and over you are not transformed. It is all about your perception. When your perception is that everything is always new then you open the door to your heart to let in the Light.

The Ari explained that our job while living in the physical plane is to play the game, “hide and seek.” The Light hides as there are sparks of Light hidden all around us. We must find these sparks and elevate them. There are 320 sparks of Light available in the process of correcting your Tikun. When you have elevated 288 of those sparks you have reached the critical mass to experience heaven on earth: removal of death from your life and the experience of Messiah. Whenever you see something, someone as the same, you are missing the opportunity to elevate a spark of Light.

Only excitement can bring you to the consciousness required to see these sparks of Light and elevate them. Our brains are slaves to our senses. The five senses act as limitations. When you close your eyes there is nothing you cannot imagine. But when you open them, there is only limitation. The human being is the only entity in this reality that has the ability to elevate the sparks of Light. If you do not see every second of your life as “WOW,” then you are acting out of obligation, you are being religious, you never will be able to transform.


We need to have compassion for others. The amount of compassion you have is an indicator as to how asleep we are as we live our lives, how much true attention we are paying to the world around us. Compassion is an active approach to life. When someone is going thru chaos and you do not feel their pain you are not connected. In order to communicate with that person, you must be able to feel their pain, understand and relate to what is going on with them. Only then can you assist them in elevating their sparks of Light. You must go outside of yourself, put yourself in their shoes to be of assistance. It is about them, not about you. You must beg from within to have the compassion to see thru their eyes and help them.

As easy as it comes, you can lose it in a second. A doctor’s job is to help people. How often do they feel compassion for their patients? How often do they see their patients as “cases” and not as individual human beings going thru the things they are going thru? How much can they really help? A man who had a massive heart attack when being released from the hospital was told by his doctor that he should not lift anything heavy. At the following Shabbat, the Rav knowing of the man’s condition, had him carry and sit holding the heaviest Torah. When the man went back to the doctor to arrange for his surgery the doctor was amazed. The man had no evidence whatsoever of having had a heart attack. True compassion using the tools can accomplish much more than an uncompassionate 1% solution.

Section 96:

This section discusses the potential journey of the soul after death of the physical body. These are the levels of cleansing the klipot from the soul to prepare the soul for its next incarnation in the physical world. The klipot, most of which are from this lifetime, can only be cleansed when the soul is not attached to the physical body. These are the laws of reincarnation. Our souls agreed to a bargain before incarnation. Our souls committed to do better than in the previous incarnations, a promise to grow and do better. If you are not growing, you are moving backwards. Everything in life needs to move forward. If a soul is not accomplishing the next level, not moving forward, then the soul leaves the physical body for cleansing before its next incarnation.

If a person comes into this world three times and does not change, then the soul can never come back. The soul only merits reincarnation if it demonstrates that progress and advancement are being made.

A soul can complete its correction in one lifetime. We need to wake up and study the levels of cleansing. We need to change, transform. Changes from fear are not real. There needs to be a true desire to change, transform for the change to be real. First is the ordeal of death where we go thru a tunnel to reach the Light. Second all the negative actions you created are paraded before you, not a pleasant experience. Third is when we enter the grave. Fourth is the ordeal of the grave. Fifth is the ordeal of worms eating the body which is very painful as a small part of the soul is still attached to the body. Sixth is the ordeal of hell. Seventh is the ordeal of the spirit, where the soul roams above the world without a resting place until its deeds are purified.

The goal of the Kabbalah Centre is to give everybody the tools to remove death, create immortality in an unlimited way. In the endless from which to soul starts and ends its journey everything exists in the same moment. There is no time between cause and effect. On the physical plane there is time between cause and effect for the chance for mercy to enter. We find excuses in this plain to say no to the Creator. In the endless there are no excuses. You feel the effect at the same time as the cause.

What is our free will? It is the choice we make to either give the sparks of Light to the klipot or to the soul. Why is pain cleansing? It pushes you forward from an uncomfortable place. The klipot prevent you from reaching the soul. It is the klipot that feel the pain. Pain is illusionary to the soul, it is only felt by the klipot. Anytime you have an argument, a career problem, a relationship problem and feel the pain, it is the klipot that feel the pain. The pain is an illusion to the soul.

Section 97:

King David lived exactly 70 years. Why? Adam lived for 930 years. King David was given the 70 years Adam needed to complete a millennium, 1,000 years. King David knew his purpose in life. King David appreciated every moment of every day and only slept 17 minutes a day. He made sure to stay in consciousness and felt the pressure to meet his expectations. Every moment was devoted to completing his Tikun. Our only obligation is to complete our Tikuns. When chaos takes over a person, you cannot reach them. They cannot be helped until the chaos stops. It is like a train. You cannot board or deplane the train between stations. You must wait until the train has reached a station.

Any time we are complaining we are creating more negativity, more negative angels. We are creating clouds of chaos that will eventually rain a painful rain upon us. We need to chose now not to fall into negativity. We must make the choice not to feed the klipot.

Section 180:

One of the most powerful tools we have is Shabbat, the 25 hours beginning with sunset on Friday night. It is the one time each week when there is freedom from Satan. Satan’s hold, the fear we feel, our anxieties all vanish during Shabbat. Satan resides in Malchut or Yesod to prevent us from connecting to the upper dimensions. On Shabbat we can reach the upper dimension of Binah, the eighth level. Drugs can also connect you to Binah, but in an unprotected way. With drugs, since you did not earn the elevation, you get burned from the short circuit. You need to build the proper vessel to receive the energy.

The Hebrew word Shabbat is spelled, “Shin, Bet, Tauf” The Shin is the Hebrew letter representing the three-column system, the three patriarchs. . The word spelled by “Bet, Tauf” is “Bat,” the Hebrew word for daughter. “The daughter is crowned by the Patriarchs” in order to draw down the energy from Binah, which is the same as the world to come. Each week we get a taste of the world to come so we know the feeling of being connected to Binah. We need to have that feeling so we know for which we strive. If we do not know how Binah feels we could not attempt to attain Binah during the rest of the week. To connect to the upper worlds you need to use the three-column system. Binah is a warehouse of energy. Connecting to Binah gives us a chance to recharge our soul without the interference of Satan.

It is a merit to know the true meaning and reason for Shabbat, an opportunity to connect to the higher worlds without Satan. If you do not use the gift then you lose it. Shabbat is universal. Shabbat is for everyone, not just Jewish people.

Section 223.

A tremendous tool we use to cleanse death from our lives is the Torah. Remember when we were discussing section 96 how the Rav used the power of the Torah to completely heal a diseased heart. When shabbat ends on Saturday night we should already begin to prepare for the following Shabbat. At Mount Sinai, where we received the Torah, there was no limitation, no death. The mutes could speak and the deaf could hear. There was immortality and no limitations from the physical plain. There was pure unity and love amongst all the people.

We need to decide to become a pure channel for the whole world. We can bring the consciousness of Sinai to our world today. Each week can take another step forward in removing death and pain and suffering from the world.

Our skeptical mind will seek the solution from the doctor in the 1% when the true answer is in the 99%. It is our consciousness as demonstrated by the Rav. We need to break the logical and receive the illogical.

Section 54 of Ki Tisa and Section 28 of Vayak’hel:

Section 54 is so important that we should constantly study its message. All the friends of Rabbi Shimon needed to have loved each other. When they did not love each other cause pain and suffering to themselves and thus the world. The lack of love amongst us can cause us to leave this world before our times.

Love and Light!

Mon 3/8/10 Malul Call

This week, know that in the spiritual process
of growing and transforming ourselves in
every aspect and moment of our lives, we are being tested. We're always
being tested. What does it mean "being tested"? Everything in our life is a test to see if our consciousness is in the right place. At work, with family, in our relationships, even with strangers.

Rav Ashlag takes this to the extreme level - which is not too extreme when
we think about it - by saying that in the moment that a person starts
his spiritual work, he starts the process of cleansing. Cleansing of
his desire to receive for the self alone. Rav Ashlag explains that there are four levels of desire as we all learn in
Kabbalah. These levels correspond to the four worlds: the world of Minerals, the world of
Vegetation, the world of Animals and the world of Human Beings.
Ultimately, the human desire to receive should be desire to receive
for the sake of sharing - a transformed desire to receive. Rav Ashlag
explains that the Animal has the desire to receive and only to receive. Vegetation has huge desire to share and very little
desire to receive. Minerals have a very small desire - no real desire, and Human Beings are considered to be the most elevated.

We need to be in a place that our desire to receive is being cleansed for the sake of
sharing. We know this week especially, we have the opportunity to
remove Erev Rav - the mixed multitude, the negativity from within.
What does this mean? It means that any time my desire to receive is
involved an action I am taking, I will need to go through
Cleansing occurs when we don’t pass the test of shifting our consciousness from the desire to receive for the self alone into the desire to share with others.

Rav Ashlag says that if you give the desire to
receive for the self alone energy, it is like scratching a rash on
your skin - it initially gives pleasure but if you continue scratching
it, it will become a wound and be painful. So once we give our desire
to receive energy, we get pleasure but eventually, it becomes a
sickness and painful.

This week, we have the opportunity to start cleansing our desire to
receive. Every time this selfish desire is involved in our actions and thoughts, and we don’t shift it, we will need to start all over again. Even if it seems or looks right, if my consciousness somehow was for my personal benefit, then I have to re-do it or the results will be limited. If the results don’t last or were not as we expected (in a negative way) somewhere in the process we had a selfish desire.

This week is like
building the second tabernacle (the first one was with people who had
desire to receive for the self alone so God told Moses to
build a new one) so we have the opportunity to re-build ourselves with
a new consciousness – for the sake of others.

We all have that rash that we want to
scratch but if we do, it might become something we do not like. This
week, we want to be able to start taking responsibility for our consciousness. If we cannot cleanse it and transform it in that moment, sometimes we just need to fall into in, fail the test – but learn from it.

If I cannot cleanse, then I fall but then I need to fix it.

This week, take responsibility for at least one action you can do
without selfish involvement. To what degree can you do it just for the
sake of sharing?

Mon 3/01/10 Malul Call

This past weekend we went into battle with Amalek. Now we need to
recover, which is what you do after war. Now we need a bit of
purification after the battle - fighting to be excited and happy each
day and, as much as we can, to eliminate ourselves / our "me"

This week is about purification for all the times we have been in
battle with the Opponent. Meaning, if you think you are pure, you are
not. If you think you are not pure, you are. Meaning? This weekend's
Shabbat, we will have the power to remove all negativity of what is
not pure within me, that is, when my "me" comes before everything
else. There is a residue of the Opponent still holding onto us. This
week we can break that. Break the part of us that wants the Light for
ourselves and not to spread it. Today, Monday, there is still the
energy of Purim - they're still celebrating in Israel - we can tap
into it. It is also the 15th day of the month of adar which also makes it a
very powerful time. Make a decision today and nothing can enter but
you have to do the work. You want to do the spiritual work (scan Zohar, make
connections,..) in a way that puts you in a place where you cannot
believe that you have such a merit / blessing, appreciation,awe.. to be able to be
involved in such a work while at same time believing in your strength,power to create,
knowledge that a spark of the Light is within you. The Opponent wants
to hold us in two ways: (1) Guilt - I am nobody / nothing / zero and (2) Ego - How amazing I am,
great person,talented.

We must feel like we are a pure spark of the Light but, on the other hand, we are just dust / nobody.

If we always do things in these two ways, Satan cannot be a part of it. If you do either/or, he will get you.

We need to have purification of really doing the work. Be in two
places. Be excited.

Weekly Zohar Portion- Tetzaveh

Tetzaveh Volume 12 Verse 86

The words of Torah become clear only there and the only light is that which comes out of the darkness. When this side is subdued, the Holy One, blessed be He, rises, and His glory becomes greater. There is no service of the Holy One, blessed be He, except from out of darkness and no good except from out of evil. When a person enters the evil way and then leaves it, the Holy One, blessed be He, rises in His glory. Therefore, overall perfection is good and evil together and rising to the good afterward. The only good is good that emerges from evil, and through this good the glory OF THE HOLY ONE, BLESSED BE HE, is elevated. This is perfect service.

In this section the Zohar tells us that even though we all would love just to be in that positive mood, that positive mindset, that unstoppable positivity to help us to help others, to help us to get rid of negativity, to help us to make dreams happen, to help us to manifest our huge dreams that we all have … the Zohar tells us that the way that we do the biggest service to the Creator {and service means the way that we will reveal the most Light in this world} is by connecting to positivity or to goodness—but by going through the evil … through the darkness ... through the difficulties … through the limitations … through the selfishness and the egos.

This is a lesson that throughout the Zohar comes back again and again and again. I want again to reawaken an important word which we all have to have in our consciousness, and that word is: Opportunity.

We are so caught up with the belief system that exists in our head that tells us that evil, difficulties, challenges are bad. “Run away from it. It is bad!”

What the Zohar tells us is that it is NOT bad. It is bad if it controls us. But it is an opportunity to reveal the biggest amount of Light.

That consciousness of opportunity is lacking in our life. Even with Kabbalah … I can tell you that for myself, as a teacher and after a lot of studying – even I can be caught up again with the consciousness of, “Okay, negativity; I want to get rid of it and overcome it, and I would like to be back into the positive place.” But, no! What the Zohar tells us is, “No.”

It is in those moments when we fall into jealousy, those moments when we fall into ego, those moments when we fall into hurt, those moments when we fall into judgment, those moments when somebody who is dear to us hurts us … in those moments we have a HUGE opportunity to reveal more Light.

We need to awaken that belief system that our soul has: It is an opportunity; it is not just bad and we need to get rid of that challenge. It is an opportunity. Going through it is an opportunity. Going through it. Going through the tough challenge. And really it is an opportunity ... an opportunity to reveal more Light.

It is really how we look at this. Do we look at this as just a challenge that we need to overcome and to push away … or do we look at this as an opportunity to reveal a greater amount of blessings in our personal life and in the world?

The whole idea is looking at things as opportunities, which is so essential. There are difficulties. As the Zohar says: Without the darkness, we will never be able to get Light. I am not talking about just difficult challenges outside.

If we have done something horrible and stupid that we are so ashamed about and we so regret, and we wish we would never have done it … part of our ego cannot stand ourselves not being righteous and not doing the right thing and being judged for it … but our ego right away jumps to the conclusion that because we have done something bad, we are not going to be liked, and it will take so long to fix it … and right away we look at the dark picture instead of the opportunity.

Darkness – even the darkness that we have created ourselves – is opportunity. It is an opportunity whereby as we are shifting in the midst of darkness, shifting to the good path, shifting to learn our lessons, then we are creating a new reality and bigger miracles. “Yes, but it is horrible. I will be judged for it.” Yeah, we might be judged for it; nevertheless, we should not lose the consciousness of opportunity.

In every situation—and it can be a person who is about to be bad, it can be a person who just heard horrible news about cancer, it can be a person who just did the most horrible thing to somebody and hurt that person so much that they do not know how they will ever repair it – even to the degree that that person says (s)he will never forgive them … and it is so painful and hurtful—we are not going to skip the painful process and fix it right away – just to know that that painful process or that bad news is darkness that leads towards Light.

It is ALWAYS … not sometimes. NOT sometimes. It is ALWAYS! And that Light … I am not going to promise you how that Light will be. It is possible for some people that the Light will be after death. They will experience huge growing experiences, being in heaven, being in a different state of consciousness, being an angel.

I am not promising how that good will manifest itself … but … every darkness is a doorway to Light. EVERY darkness: The bad things we have done, the bad things happening to us … and we have free choice. We DO have free choice. It does not matter how bad a situation is; we DO have a free choice that we stop exercising because things seem to be too bad … because we are allowing the cassette and the belief system that “it is bad” to give us all the movies instead of saying, “One second; what free choice do I have here?”

Some of the free choice is creating a better future in our own mind – just seeing the Light after the darkness in our imagination – we might not feel it right away, and it is not logical, but the fact that we are imagining things that our ego does not let us imagine means that we are practicing free choice. We are freeing ourselves from the belief system that dark means dark. What I am saying is that the real belief system is that darkness is a doorway to Light.

So in the midst of this darkness, we need to reach a place in our soul where we can imagine Light. We need to reach a place in our soul where we can imagine or try to love in the midst of it. We need to try to inject real meaningful emotions of loving somebody. “How can I? I am worried about my own future. How can I love?”

We all have the power within us … to inject love, to inject acceptance, to inject certainty, to see a better future, to imagine greater realities, to become closer to somebody, to know that we are growing, to become hopeful. All those emotions of the soul that during the time of darkness our ego does not let us have … we need to inject that computer of the soul in the midst of those moments. That is what the Zohar tells us.

The faster and more energetic our injection of this different reality, the reality that darkness is just a doorway for Light, the faster the process of pain will be, and the faster the miracles that we will experience.

Darkness is a doorway for Light.

The darkness that we injected when we are waking up from it … or the darkness that comes from the outside towards us.



Good evening everyone. Before we start with tonight’s lecture on the portion, let us prepare ourselves to have the right consciousness to receive the information. The first time we hear something we tend to question it, react to what we hear, not knowing if it is right, accurate. Whatever is going on in our head is how we receive the information. When we hear new information immediately there is a reaction in our brains. Things that our going on in our heads, events that are going on in our lives tend to color the lesson we receive. So as we prepare ourselves to receive the lesson tonight, in order to receive much more than we think we can, try not to immediately react to any of the lesson. Instead try to observe the lesson and get a deeper understanding. This is a tool to better understanding. Remove reaction. Empty yourself and receive the information as it is the first time ever hearing it.

We open ourselves so our consciousness can receive the energy that is currently available in the cosmos. The Zohar helps us to decode the Torah, the Five Books of Moses. We know that it is not the story, but it is an energy that in a way to teleport ourselves to a different dimension. This does not mean going to some different planet, but changing our mind frame. Learn to take the energy, observe the energy and use it for our lives today.

The portion, Tetzaveh, continues the building of the Tabernacle in all the details. Moses was the architect for everything regarding it’s construction. The Mishcan, the Tabernacle, was a tool to channel and deliver the Light to the masses. The portion then goes on to give information about the high priest, the Kohen Gadol. The Kohen was an unique individual. The Kohen did not have, own anything of his own. He was a pure channel, whose only purpose in life was to serve.

This Shabbat, the Shabbat before Purim, is called Shabbat Zachor. We add a small part to the reading, a special Maftir, which is about the war to defeat the nation of Amalek. The Zohar tells us that Amalek is not really a nation , but a concealed truth about life. The word Amalek has the same numerical value as the Hebrew word for doubt. Words of the same numerical value have the same or connected meaning. So the real purpose is to learn how to defeat the war that is going on inside of ourselves to remove the doubt from our lives. This is an ongoing war. That is why it is so important to hear this week’s Torah portion. Remove the doubt in our lives, not blame others for what happens to us, and learn to believe that the tolls will work. We can also connect to the Kohen inside of ourselves so we can become servants for the Light.

From the time of Moses’ birth he is mentioned in every portion of the Torah except Tetzaveh. After the sin of the Golden Calf, Hashem decreed that all the Israelites should die. Moses protested and offered himself as a sacrifice so that the Israelites could live. (Inserted from the Kabbalistic bible): “ This may seem as a punishment, but the truth is we have more of Moses in this portion than in any other. The more physicality there is in anything, the less Light there is. Here, there is no physicality of Moses, so we are getting all of his Light.”

When we are saying things that we can learn, we mean the energy into which we can tap. It is energy that can enter into our systems, our bank accounts. It is a totality of energy that we can share, spread to others. If you are not tapping into that energy and spreading the energy what you are then sharing is your own Tikun, your own garbage. What you want to give is an ongoing flow of information, flow of wisdom, Light, a constant happiness. Otherwise you are just giving to others your own little selfish place that is trying to get energy. It is an ongoing reminder as to what you want to give to others.

This weeks lesson is to learn how to give, spread the Light without the interference of our ego, to channel the Light to others. We studied sections 4, 55, 75 and 61.

Section 4:

How to become a pure channel. The craftsmen who worked on the Tabernacle did not know how to do everything. What they did know was how to become a pure channel. It is not about what we know, but about how to use what we know, how to let it flow thru us and share with others. The portion starts “V’ata.” The Hebrew word for “and you” which is spelled, Vuv, Aleph, Tauf, Hey. This is the secret. We say this during our connections, “From Aleph to Tauf, to Hey, Malchut.” In the Hebrew alphabet Aleph is the first letter and Tauf is the last letter. So we are saying from a to z. The letter Hey represents Malchut. Thus we are bring all the energy, from a to z, down to manifest in our physical world, Malchut.

The physical world is not negative. Everything in the physical world is a channel for the Light and it is to be appreciated as such. If you think the physical world is negative, then there is nothing you can use to channel the Light. Everything becomes an obstacle instead of an instrument of the Light.

When you start at zero and complete a project at the end, you geta feeling of accomplishment. You are connecting the Light and the Vessel.

The Vuv represents Zeir Anpin, the spiritual dimensions above Malchut and the three upper dimensions. The Vuv is the first letter, the seed level, of the portion. This is giving us the opportunity to channel the Light from Zeir Anpin.

The workers on the Tabernacle could not just do the job. Moses channeled the Light for the craftsmen and they were able to do the job when they received the wholly spirit and the wholly spirit moved them.

Likewise we do not want to disturb the Light by bringing our own system into the situation. We want to bring the pure Light, unencumbered by any part of me into the physical world.

There are tow situations. One is always acting to restrict. The problem here is that you are pushing back against the Light and not letting the Light in. The other way is to become a channel: let the Light flow thru you without the injection of the “Me,” with no disturbance to stop the energy. Just let the energy flow. Then problems and situations will be easily solved. The answer is just there because it is brought by the Light. You have no idea how you solved the problem. What appeared to be hard is easy. The goal is to connect to the endless in an endless way.

The Hebrew word for channel is “Tzinor,” Tsadik, Nun, Yud, Resh. Rearranging the letters to Resh, Tsadik, Yud, Nun, you spell “Ratsone,” the Hebrew word for desire. In order to channel the Light you must have a desire to receive. Ask for only me and you become a vessel. Ask for the sake of sharing and you become a pipe with on open bottom so everything flows thru you.

If you restrict and you see nothing to distribute to others, you are restricting the flow of the Light. You need to restrict in a different manner. The restriction is to look at the situation with a different point of view. As you see, you need to deliver. Without any entitlement as nothing in this world belongs to you. When you hold onto something, you cannot be a channel. You are closed and have become a vessel. A vessel is always limited in the amount it can receive. A channel allows endless flow of energy. Channels are endless, vessels are limited. Nothing around you can grow if you do not act as a channel, spreading the Light, nourishing those you. Then you receive an unlimited reward.

Usually rejection causes us not to become a channel. When we open our hearts and feel rejection our reaction is to close our hearts. Rejection is the Light telling you, you are going in the wrong direction. The Light is telling you that you must take a different approach, go in a different direction to meet your goals. When things always happen to you in the same way it is a message from the Light to wake up.

Being a channel is to take a risk. Seeing the rejection as a sign for the Light and change. Become a channel in everything you do in the day. Constantly ask yourself, “How can I remove my agenda in everything I do?”

Section 55:

Anger removes all the good deeds you have done in your life. Anger is a very deadly weapon. When people get angry they can either internalize the anger or show it. Anger is energy stimulation. We need stimulation in this reality. When you internalize the anger, it sucks all the sparks of Light from your DNA. We all have belief systems and when things do not go our way we get upset. We must change our belief systems. We need to identify what in our belief system triggers our anger. Instead of receiving energy and stimulation from anger we must change and receive the energy the Light is offering us. We must realize that the Light is always there to give us, we just need to be open.

Section 75:

This section connects us to Pesach. Matzah is unleavened bread. It does not rise. It is devoid of the Ego. Matzah’s perfection is that it has no desire to receive for the self alone. It is complete circuitry without the Ego. The Ego is always looking to grow, magnify itself. The Ego is about the desire to receive for the self alone. The Ego does not trust in the Light.

We must learn to have blind faith. The ability to jump into the unknown because we trust in the Light to guide and direct us. Simple faith is the ability to make the leap. If I want to connect to the pure energy, I must first reduce my Ego as much as possible.

Section 61:

We remove the mask in Purim so we can escape from our prisons during Pesach. There are steps in our recognition system:





(The mask covers our emptiness that is painful so we must deal with our Tikun by removing the Klipot to reach our Soul, enlighten the diamond within us).

There are many levels we want to break thru. We must not create different masks that guard us from revealing our true selves. We are always putting on different masks: success, victimhood, doubt, intellectual superiority, playing dumb. Masks hide a level of emptiness. They cover those uncomfortable places and hide our fear of exposure. When you put on a mask you do not need to deal with anyone. We do not want to admit our weaknesses, failure, so we cover up. When I have a mask, I do not need to explain my fears.

Without any doubt, we are strong enough to deal with everything that comes our way. We have all the tools we need to handle all the obstacles. We need to find the unlimited that is inside of us. Nothing comes from outside sources. We need to get to our diamond.

Purim is the tool to remove the masks in preparation for Pesach. First we need to identify the mask. The Amalek, the doubt within us, must be transformed into receiving for the sake of sharing. Every bit of the Amalek must be removed, transformed. Most of us are mostly Amalek.

How many levels of our consciousness within us are connected to the desire to receive for the self alone. How much time do we spend thinking about sharing the Light? If everything inside us is for the sake of sharing then there is no problem. How do we defeat the Amalek, doubt? We need to trust the Light, have certainty in the Light.

On Purim we drink to lose complete consciousness. If I have any aspect of doubt, receiving for the self alone, I need to go to the level where that doubt is melted, the Golem. Melt the consciousness and rebuild without the doubt, without the desire to receive for the self alone. We need to tap into the 50th gate of Binah, the storehouse of all the Light, positive energy.

At Purim we read the Magillah of Esther. This is the revealing the concealed, removing the doubt in our lives. We can then enter a different realm, level of understanding.

Love and Light

Mon 2/22/10 Malul Call

This week is the time to remove our many masks. Before we get to Purim
and bond with the Light, we have to remove our masks. Kabbalists say
that the time will come when each one of us has to stand face to face
with the Light. Ask yourself now, how many people really know you? How
many people in your life really know who you are? Do you allow others
to see who you are? Who do you see when you look in the mirror?

Looking back, how many of us can say we are not ashamed of any day
that we have lived? Can we say that every day of our lives we have
revealed Light and is a day we are proud of? Most of our days are not
as pure as we want it to be. not all the days that we have lived come up
before the Light, only the ones that had light and revelations.

The Opponent shows us empty places within us where we are feeling a
void / lack then we start having doubts, negativity. This causes us to
have evil tongue - speaking lies about ourselves and others.

This week we have the opportunity to remove our masks, see ourselves
as we really are and connect to who we really are. Take
responsibility. If you have nothing good to say about others then say
nothing. Remove the noise, shut down the noise inside your head. Ask
yourself: if I am facing the Light right now, what kind of human being
am I / do I want to be? Do I have days of happiness / excitement? Do I
only have days where I am connecting to myself?

Take the opportunity from now to inject consciousness in everything
you do or say. Have at least one moment in the day when you are
revealing Light.

Trumah 2/20/10

Trumah – Volume 11 Verse 39
How do we know that the Holy One, blessed be He, wants him and places His dwelling place in him? IT IS when we see that the desire of the person IS to endeavor to pursue the Holy One, blessed be He, with his heart and soul and desire. We are certain then that the Shechinah dwells there. Then we should pay in full to befriend him and to learn from him. About this, the ancients said, “… and acquire for yourself a friend.” You must buy him for a full price in order to merit the Shechinah THAT DWELLS IN HIM. This is how far it is necessary to pursue a righteous man and purchase him.

Here the Zohar speaks about how to know who truly carries the Shechinah, which is the Light Force of the Creator, within him; a person, when we see that the person possesses the Light, we need to run after and connect to and study from and be around.

First we need to address the whole concept of the ultimate goal. The ultimate goal, as we have learned, is that teachers will no longer exist; everybody will connect; everybody will have a total awareness – without curtains – of the Light of the Creator, of all the teachings, of all the wisdom. No more curtains and blockages. We will see everything clearly and, as a result, we will tune into the Laws of the Universe; we will tune into that reality we call the Tree of Life reality where nothing is bad and there is only good: Heaven on Earth. That is the ultimate goal—and we will not need any teachers, any assistance, any bridges.

Nevertheless, until we get to that point, since we all came from one soul, we all came to this world to assist each other. There are always poor and rich, wise and less wise, powerful and powerless. In many areas in life we actually all complete each other with our piece of the puzzle … until we reach the critical mass when we will all be able to connect.

Until that time, we do need to search and to look for somebody who—just by being in his midst, being around him—can inspire and awaken our consciousness … not that we are going to receive the Light through that person or that simply being around that person will help us to connect and to plug in to a higher way of thinking.

It is also asking how we will know that that person really can be an inspiration for us. The Zohar teaches that it is when we see a person who runs and craves after the connection to the Light of the Creator, when we see that person who truly desires and craves and nothing stops him from getting to that connection (and if he gets that connection, he will run after another and another).

The indication that a person is truly connected is not because he is sitting and has a wise face, and not because he appears smart and he has so much information. It is to look at his level of craving and looking for the deeper connection and the higher goal, and effecting more change, and touching more people, and he is never satiated. He is looking for the next level and the next level and the next level.

Take Rav and Karen Berg as an example. They were and still are unstoppable. And it does not matter how many people they have changed, how many lives they have touched; there is always that craving, “How can we touch more? How can we affect more?” And at the same time, to this day they take pause, in a state of wonder about the amazing Light and energy—like a little kid, for the first time.

That is our problem. Often when we just do things because we have been exposed for the first time to spirituality, we are amazed: “Wow! What a connection!” But do we have the same type of excitement 20 years later? Do we crave another spark of Light from the same tool, from the same Ana Bekoach, from the same words of the Zohar, from the same meditation again and again? THAT is the indication of true craving.

We can also easily be misled by people around us because they appear smart and wise. Are they truly looking for the opportunity to grow, to change, to do more, to touch more, to have bigger goals?

So, that is the concept of getting closer and doing everything in our power. It says that we have to pay any price, but it means that we have to make any effort to get connected to a person like this. The Zohar is teaching about technology here—the technology of connecting to the Light by being around people who get it and crave it. It is not technology; it is another tool to be able to plug in.

But do we not teach in Kabbalah that it is all about “ME doing it by myself?” Yes, that is part of the technology. For me to do it by myself, I need to identify those people that by just being around them can help me to do it by myself even in a bigger level.

One of the indications that those people are real is that they do not need our appreciation or respect; they would actually rather not have it, because if they have any ego from it and satisfaction from it, then they are not truly craving growth, they are not truly craving transformation, and they are not truly craving effecting bigger change in the world. They need this little satisfaction, and that is an indication that they are not the right people.

It is also another technology to run after those who have a higher consciousness than we do. As a result, it will rub off on us and it will affect our consciousness.

Let’s take this week to look around us and see if we’re truly chasing and craving to be close to those kind of people. Let’s also take time to get closer to those types of souls. Even if my ego doesn’t want me to be around greatness, my soul does!

All the best


The portion of Terumah begins with Hashem directing Moses to collect from the Israelites the required components for them to construct a Tabernacle in accordance to the directions given in the rest of the portion. “And they built a Tabernacle and I will dwell within them.” While we are given the instructions to build a Tabernacle in the physical world, what is discussed in the Zohar is the metaphysical building of the Tabernacle and the Temple within ourselves. The physical Tabernacle is a tool to draw energy into our physical world. The Tabernacle within us is the way for us to draw the Light of the Creator into our life. In order for us to have a Tabernacle, a Temple within us, we must have an open heart.

Once upon a time a man thought that he could fool the Kabbalist who lived in his village. He approached the Kabbalist with a live butterfly in his hand with the intention of asking the Kabbalist whether or not the butterfly was alive. If the Kabbalist would respond saying the Butterfly was alive, he would crush it in his hands and kill it. If the Kabbalist responded that the Butterfly was dead, then the man would release the live butterfly to fly away. The Kabbalist surprised the man by responding that the life of the butterfly was “In your Hands.”

The Kabbalist taught a very important, but simple lesson, the choice is ours. The choice whether we live a life full of Light or one full of chaos is ours to choose. If we choose the life full of Light we must build the Tabernacle inside ourselves. The key to constructing the Tabernacle within ourselves is opening our hearts. This is the theme of the lesson we learned: We choose the life we lead and if we choose the life of living in the Light we must open our heart.

To learn this lesson we studied sections 36-37, 38, 39, 41, 714-715 and 888 of the Zohar portion Trumah.

Sections 36-37:

If I want a true, real connection to the Light, I need to have an open heart. A lasting connection only occurs when you are using the three column system. An open heart is by definition the used of three column system. For you can only open your heart by applying restriction, thus connecting to the central column.

Any time I receive without making an effort, doing the work, it will be very hard to keep. Most likely I will lose what I have received. I will only have it temporarily. Even if it is a gift, will I be able to hold onto it? Few things last forever in the 1%. We tire of relationships. We put ends to everything. This is an indicator of the impure spirit within us. If we were pure we could tap into the eternal power within us and achieve the immortality that is there for us. We must pay the full price for everything in order to hold onto it. The impure spirit always is attached with something we get for free. We do not care for that item with the same care as when we earn that item. Things we receive without effort, without an open heart, we cannot hold onto. An open heart equals balance. Our biggest fear is the fear of losing what we have. The fear becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy. Empowering the fear takes you away from the Light of the Creator and you will lose it.

We need to have more people in our lives. A true effort needs to happen. Only when we make a true, full investment in life can we receive with an open heart and hold onto our gifts. The mind and heart must work together in order to properly receive and hold onto the things in our life. We can lose it in a second. Our heart can stop in a second.

Nothing in the 1% can bring the desired results. The real indicator is how much I am letting go of the ego. Work done on the 1% level will only yield results in the 1% reality, not in the 99%. An open heart is when you are really, truly happy for someone else’s success. How can I welcome more people in my life? When I want to build that real temple inside of myself. PLEASE take this seriously!! Everything that comes to us this month is to increase the goodness, happiness in my life. It doesn’t matter how it looks, it is ultimately for the good. It is constant work that yields permanent happiness and not just momentary pleasures.

Section 38:

Our heart is like the heart of the creator when we are doing, taking his actions. Why am I giving? Is it because I am told to do so, because I have obligated myself, because I have made a commitment? If you do not have the desire, joy and enthusiasm when giving, then no good will come from the giving. You need to have an endless desire to receive the endless, to hold onto your gifts.

How many people really change? How many truly build a balance within themselves? Few people really transform. If we have fear to open our heart then we will lead a life of chaos. There is no temple within. When there is a temple within people are attracted to our energy and we want people to come to us so we can nourish them.

Section 39:

Even when we lack of certainty, we must stay excited. When others are attempting to hurt me, I stay excited. Even if the excitement is not natural, act as if, fake it till you make it. Excitement expands your vessel and allows you to receive more Light. When you are not excited it is an indicator that you have broken the connection with the Light. Do not have guilt about not being excited. We need tremendous desire, excitement to change. I need to go all the way. I must be constantly excited.

When you see a person who is excited when they are going thru bad times, then you know the Light is with him. You want to be around this person, you need to around this person. You should pay whatever it takes to be with this person. We want to be busy with that person in order to gain the Light of the Shechinah. Hook yourself to that person, chase after him. Each and every one of us can excite each other.

Section 41:

This is one of the sections of the Zohar that is the foundation of the reason the Kabbalah Centre exists. When you hold a wicked person’s hand, you show him the path to the Light. Showing the person the way to connect to the Creator reveals the greatest amount of Light in the world. This gives you the ability to have the greatest amount of wealth. You can no longer be judged! You can enter any gate. You gain all the possible protection that there is available in this reality.

Strengthen the connection of the people around us. You cannot convince a person about the Light by talking, confrontation. You can only convince a person by showing them the Light. Show your enthusiasm, your excitement. You must learn how to deliver the message without coming across as preaching.

Pisces is the astrological sign that embodies harmony in communication. Use this energy in your relationships this month. We have the most trouble communicating with people who are closest to us.

There are two steps in properly communicating with people. First: Where am I coming from? Second: Where is the other person? Is that person really listening? Too often when we are attempting communication we are using our heads and not coming from our hearts. We are concerned with who is going to win the confrontation. This solves nothing! We all actually lose! There is no purpose in this communication. Maybe you will prove something, but it will not last.

What are you really trying to achieve in the communication? What is the purpose you are trying to accomplish? In order to have real communication you must learn to walk in the other person’s shoes. You need to understand what the other person needs for them to understand us, listen to us. We need to increase the love and care for others.

The Light wants to give us so much this month, so much more than we are looking to receive. The highest level, the level that reveals the greatest Light is to help someone else defeat his evil inclination. Remember you have merited the opportunity to be a part of the Centre.

Sections 714-715:

When I do not have happiness in my heart, I cannot connect with the Light. My actions are less effective.

When the owner of a restaurant, or the chef is angry, do not eat there. Their negative energy will infuse the food with negative energy.

Why are you not happy? You are choosing to disconnect from the Light. Learn to fake it until you make it. The only true happiness comes from the Light. You need to change your mood. No matter how difficult, beg for the Light of the Creator and become happy.

This month we have the opportunity to infuse happiness in the entire year.

Section 888:

Moses never died. He just moved to another dimension. When anybody “dies” it is only from our perspective. From the “dead” person’s perspective he is still alive.

The person has just disappeared from our view. Most of my fear is in disappearance. Nothing really disappears. When things seem to disappear to you it is because you are living in the 1% Nothing disappears in the 99%. When you have “lack” you are not connected to the 99%.

Everything in the universe is made of the same energy. Things are just in different phases. When you do not see the Light in everything is when Chaos comes into your life. If you do not ask where you are going, you are never going to get there. Do not waste time doing things without happiness.

Love & Light
