Vayeitzei ויצא

The essence of the Parasha

The Name of this Parasha is a bit concealed as to its essence. Vayetze translates as went out, meaning past tense. This is actually coming from the leading Vav which changes the tense from future to past. This change to actually realizing that the translation can be "and will go" or "and will exit".

What does it mean to exit? And where is the Torah telling us to exit? The Kabbalah teaches that to exit means to leave behind something. What are we supposed to leave behind? As a student of Kabbalah your first guess can be "chaos". Yes this Parasha allows us to leave behind our chaos. How do we do that?

The story of Jacob's payment from Lavan is strange. It says that Jacob agrees to take in payment all of the sheep and goats and cattle that are solid colored. Most animals have spots - Nekudim; speckles - Akudim; and Flecks - Berudim. When the genes unite in an animal from the mother and father animal it is genetically unusual for the baby animal to be solid in color - without spots, speckels, and flecks. The Kabbalah, through Rabbi Ashlag in his "Ten Luminous Emanation" Sefer explains that these three Hebrew words represent the three Creations. These Creations occur prior to the Creation of our physical world and thus have the seed level of everything that happens in our physical world.

When you are at the seed level you can correct any aspect of anything that follows in the process of Creation. Thus you can remove any chaos in your life and the life of the world. That opportunity occurs during the 5th Aliya - the Hod Aliya. The Sefira of Hod represents the manifestation of the spiritual. It is more energy intensive than even the physical manifestation since it does not have to be connected to physicality. This is the Sefira that Rabbi Shimon chose to have as his Hilula - Lag BeOmer - Hod Shebe Hod. As you listen to this Aliya contemplate how you would change the life of this world.

Commentary from the year 5777

By utilizing the 3 aspects of Creation - Nekudim - Akudim - Berudim. These are spots - speckles - flecks we can leave our chaos behind. In the story it appears as it is referring to DNA and genetics and that is true. It is referring to the DNA of Creation.

If you say these 3 words and have certainty you receive the energy of leaving your past negative actions that create your chaos in this lifetime. Interested? Try it for 1 year straight - each day say these 3 words in Hebrew. You will see a diminished amount of your individual chaos and if enough of us do this the worlds chaos will change.
