The Year 5782 תשפב According to Kabbalah

Every year i use an ancient Kabbalistic technique to prognosticate about the year ahead.

When one prognosticates about the future there is a traditional statement that needs to be made in order to protect the prognosticator and the people who read or hear about his statements. The traditional statement which i am making at this time is: I am not a Prophet nor am I the Son of a Prophet. One may now feel safe in reading the balance of this page.

Many times i am asked by students and friends: What will the future be? What will tomorrow bring? I usually answer, "We will all return to the Endless World (Ayn Sof). The only question is will the process be shorter for you due to your using the tool called Binding by Striking (Some call it Restriction) or longer due to your negative actions that create the necessity of cleansing through pain and suffering (chaos)?"

Yet each year i analyze the year ahead as the Kabbalists have taught us to do. The reason they have given us this tool is not to satisfy our curiosity about the future. It is to learn about the essence of the energies that we will see during the year so that we can be prepared to restrict our reactive natures and also to learn how to enhance the positive aspects of the year.

The Kabbalists teach that change comes about one person at a time. When we look at the modern world and how it has changed, we realize that the Kabbalists are correct. Change comes about one person at a time. Change comes about when one person decides to change themselves.

When you change yourself - then you can change the whole world because other people notice the change in you. When you change and other people notice that makes you a happier person. They then decide to try to change themselves. Trying to change leads to actual changing. Please try... you will change the world and will not even realize that you did it.

Let us discuss the meaning of a particular year and its energy. Included in the energy of a year and explained by the Kabbalah is all of the potential energy for that year. Good things may happen. Negative things may happen. What determines that is the consciousness of the people. Of course no one wants negative things to happen yet they sometimes do happen due to the effects of the quantum consciousness of the human species. We must realize that every Prophecy that is negative does not have to happen. People can change these negative prophecies to happen in a positive way or not happen at all. How does someone make these changes?

The answer is simple – so simple that people do not think it is that easy to do it. They think it takes more difficult actions and they think that they as one person can not have a significant impact and change the world. Yet the truth is it is that simple. EACH PERSON can do these actions. These actions will impact the prophecies to happen in a positive way and eliminate the negative prophecies completely. Only you can change the world. When you change yourself you change the world. What do you need to do?

The simple action is to change yourself.

What does changing yourself mean? How do I go about changing myself?

1. Decide that it is worth changing yourself a little bit. Know that the universe is waiting for you to change. The Sages and Kabbalists teach that we need to “see” ourselves as standing on a balance scale where our one simple action will throw the whole world into a positive mode or chas v'shalom a negative mode. This is more true today than at any time in the history of the world.

2. Say any of the verses that will be shown and discussed below.

That is the one simple thing that will change you so that the consciousness of the world will change.

Yes, there is more that you can do as well. That will be revealed later in the year. The first step needs to begin now. It needs to be expanded by showing or telling this to everyone you know personally, or on social media, or every phone number in your call list. The more effort that you put into this connection and this action the more certain we can be that WE Will Change

Another method that changes yourself is Tithing and Tzedakah.

    Rabbi Ginsburg Analysis of 782

    Crown: “May He give you peace”

    We will now begin from above and descend downward. The first allusion of 782 is the climax of the Priestly Blessing, which is one of if not the numerical gem of the Torah. It is comprised of three verses. The priests say, “May God bless you and guard you. May God shine His countenance upon you and give you grace.” And the third and final verse and blessing is, “May God lift His countenance upon you and give you peace.” The final three words, are the climax, “May He give you peace” (וְיָשֵׂם לְךָ שָׁלוֹם). There is a very important intent in these words, which we say every day, that the ultimate blessing is peace—peace in the world, peace of mind; peace in Hebrew also means consummate perfection or soundness, even good health, anything that needs to be complete is peace. 

    The sages say that there is nothing greater than peace, גָּדוֹל הַשָּׁלוֹם. This is the ultimate blessing that the Torah blesses us through the priests who are the messengers that bring the word and blessing of God to us, and we send them to receive this message and channel it through them to us. The ultimate blessing are the final three words. 

    In the sages, they teach us that each part of the three blessings is about something specific. The Sifrei, the anthology of interpretations of the words of the Torah according to the oral tradition received from Sinai, explains that “May He give you peace” means “the peace of the Torah” (זֶה שְׁלוֹם תּוֹרָה). The explanation is that there is something unique about the Torah since it has the power to make peace between opposite opinions. This is very prominent throughout the rabbinic literature. Even though one sage says so and the other says the opposite and they contradict one another, “these and these are both the words of the living God.” There is something intrinsic about the Torah that the peace of the Torah is the true ultimate union of opposites that will be revealed in the future by the Mashiach. In this world we cannot yet fully understand what it means that two opposite opinions can be one. This is why this allusion belongs to the realm of the crown, to the supernal super-conscious realm of the soul. There the Torah makes peace between the people that express these opposite opinions—everything that a rabbinic sage says expresses his soul root.

    In our world, these opposite soul roots even seem antagonistic, but in the crown, they are ultimately in a state of perfect peace. As the Torah says, “In Vaheb in Sufah,” which the sages allegorically interpret as meaning, “love in the end,” meaning that the dispute between the different opinions clarified through the study of Torah, which is like a war, ends with love.

    In the crown it is revealed how all different people are actually one and the same in their Divine essence; that every Divine soul of Israel is an actual part of the Divinity of God. Divinity does not split into parts, so each soul is a reflection of the entire whole. Every part is the whole, except that you only see one aspect of the infinite dimensions of the whole. 

    This phrase, “May He give you peace” (וְיָשֵׂם לְךָ שָׁלוֹם) equals 782. If I add the interpretation of the sages, “the peace of the Torah” (זֶה שְׁלוֹם תּוֹרָה) to 782, the sum comes to 1781, which is 13 times 137, where 13 is the value of “one” (אֶחָד), or “love” (אַהֲבָה)—peace is a revelation of love and oneness—and 137 is a very important number, the most important number in modern physics, it is the value of the word “kabbalah” (קַבָּלָה = receive). So, this is a very beautiful number. 

    One more point about this. As we said before that peace means perfection in Hebrew. To give peace is the peace of God. What does this mean. The Torah and God are one and the same. The peace of God is an expression explained in the early texts of Kabbalah, that God is complete (peace) inasmuch as, although He is infinite, He possesses the power of finitude in His infinity. He is without boundaries, but to be complete He cannot be lacking anything, not even the opposite of what He appears to be.

    Before the contraction of His infinite light, He is infinite. But to say that He is just infinite and does not possess in His essence finitude, is to take away His completeness. Therefore, the completeness of God, which is also the completeness of the Torah, is that it also includes details. Everything in the Torah has a limit, it is limitless together with being limited, simultaneously. Since all the different details come from the same infinity, for that reason itself, different sages, which are representative of different soul roots, each has his affinity—they are all part of the infinite one. There is both a limit (like in mathematics) and sometimes there is no limit. The unity of the limitless and the limit is the peace of God, which is also the peace of the Torah. This is the first meditation of 782.
