|Week of November 29, 2009 Shabbat Vayishlach Kislev 18, 5770|
This is my Birth Parasha!
Please give me a Birthday Present. Let the words of this email activate a change within you!
For Your Information:
One of the best sources to learn about your personal Tikune is your birth Parasha. Do you know how to find out what is your birth Parasha? Yeshshem is working on automating that material for you. We could use some Chanuka Gelt if you are interested?
There are 9 spaces in the scroll this week. One is unusual and another one creates a question in our minds. Please read last years email to begin to understand the message of the Parasha. Vayishlach from last year. The number 9 always relates to Tzadikim, the Spherah of Yesod (Foundation), or the Sperah of Chochma (Wisdom).
I find the location of the First space and the Second space indicating a spiritual law. These two spaces bracket (set off) one verse. Chapter 33 Verse 18. This verse deals with Jacob arriving SHALEM in Shchem. Purchasing property from Hamor - Shchem's father, and starting to do his spiritual work (setting up an alter) in the Land of Israel. Rashi's comments on this verse indicate that Jacobs injury was healed physically. He arrived financially perfect having lost nothing by making his gifts to Esav, implying God had replaced all of these gifts. And Jacob had forgotten none of the Torah (taught to him by Avraham, Issac, Shem, and Ever) while in Lavan's House. The spiritual law indicates that to control the phsyical world - the message from last week in Vayeitzei - we must do our spiritual work and also maintain contact with HaShem.
As we wrote last year the parasha of Vayishlach is an antidote for Hatred. This is especially true of the verse in Chapter 33 verse 4 with the 6 dots. These 6 dots allow us to do the tshuvah for any transgressions we did during the 6 th day of Tishrai which is one of the 10 days of Tshuvah. This year the sixth day was on Thursday and represents items and actions coming from the Sphera of Hod.
Before i speak at length about Sinat Hinam (Hatred for no reason) i would like to point out Chapter 35 Verse 6. The midrash says that this verse refers to the death of Rivka but does not mention her by name only her Hand Maid Devorah.
The question is why does the Torah not mention Rivka and also why does it mention the location Luz. It is mentioned in the Zohar, The Talmud, and the Midrash (so no one will miss the issue) that the Luz bone is the process that will be used to resurrect the dead because it is the only part of the body that does not decompose. This is because it is fed only by what one eats at the fourth meal of Shabbat called Melavah Malka. Ponder this for a bit. In the Zohar we are taught that Rivka is the code word for the Body after the Mashiach. The body that does not die. How could the Torah be true and tell us that Rivka dies. She and we will not die. All it takes is consciousness of the Truth. We no longer have to die! It is up to us to expand our consciousness to encompass this truth. The method to accomplish this is called read or scan the Zohar every day. How long each day? that is up to you. Go to daily Zohar .com or write me for the link to the full Zohar on line.
We are taught that we must do our spiritual work and that the reason the Temple has not been rebuilt is because we still harbor in our hearts of stone Sinat Hinam. Our sages and prophets have continuously told us to remove this horrible character trait and do Tshuva in order to bring the Maschiach and the Resurection of the dead.
Sinat is the feminine form of the word Sinah which is spelled Shin Nun Aleph Hay and HiNam is spelled Hay Yood Nun Mem Sofit. Sinah means Hatred but the Shoresh of Hinam is Hay Nun Mem Sofit and means "to give pleasure" or "to cause joy". Obviously we all do not think Hatred causes Joy. . . . . or do we. At our core we must believe that we have to hate someone so that we can receive pleasure from them. One of the reasons for this is the belief that this world is limited and does not have enough resources to fullfill everyones desire for food, water, etc. Our scientists have warned us since the 1800 that the world is running out of resources but it never does. So why do we listen to them? Why do we have fears? Why do we constantly assists the fear mongers among us by repeating stories of the "end of the world", and the like. It sells books, and movies, and it makes us excited. After all peace and comfort is boring.
Let me say to you all.
There are enough resources in this world for all of our needs. Our needs include every human being on the planet and who will grow to maturity on the planet and even those who will live in outer space. Yes we will grow colonies on the outer planets of our solar system and even in other star systems. How do i know this. I am not a prophet or even a son of a prophet. I have read the Torah Chumash. In the book of Devarim or Deuteronomy Moshe tells us so. Yes he uses the word "IF" so there is no guarantee unless we want it. To actualize it we MUST STOP ALL WARS and find a way to settle our differences. So how do we do this. Follow the plan of the Torah, both the Mitzvoth of the Noachide Laws and the Mitzvoth of the Torah as we understand them. We can not understand them with out striving for a connection on the intuitive level. This is what Kabbalah teaches.
Do you want peace in your life, the life of your family, the life of your city, the life of your country, the life of our world? Honestly? Are you willing to give up your pleasure that you receive from Hatred.
I have always found a statement by Mathatma Gandi profound. When a Moslem man came to him a practicing Hindu and asked him the following: " i have just killed a Hindu man in retaliation for a Hindu man killing my Brother leaving me with a nephew to raise. i know i left the son of the man i killed homeless and destitute. How can i forgive the HIndu and the Hindu forgive me?"
Mathatma Gandi's answer was quite profound. Raise both your nephew and the son of the man you killed. Raise your nephew as a Hindu; raise your other responsibility (the son of the man you killed) as a Moslem and watch the world change.
Are you willing? In my past i raised Exchange Students for a year at a time. I - a Jewish man raised a Catholic Daughter and a Moslem daughter alongs side my own daughers being raised Jewish. Are you willing to do something similar? or even just a little change in yourself. REalize that the thoughts of Hatred come from the Satan and send them back to the nothing that he represents. Hatred breeds Hatred so stop your thinking, and listenting to hatred. Weather it comes form the Television, or the Politcos, or the Religious community. Find it in yourself to Love for a reason and replace Hated for NO reason! PLease!!!!
Enjoy the Reading!
