Neo Hassidic - Letting HASHEM into our lives is what it's all about. We do it through our exuberance in our own ideas and acts in regard to dress, prayer, song, dance, and Torah learning. All this stimulates us to do "The Mitzvot " making this world a better place for ourselves and everyone else, Jewish or not.

The Tabernacle of David Part 2

“On that day I will raise up the fallen booth of David; I will repair their breaches and raise up its ruins, I all build it up as in days of old, so that they upon whom My Name is called may inherit the remnant of Edom and all the nations, the word of HASHEM, Who shall do this.”
Amos 9:11,12

Shalom, we commence this discourse by focusing upon some of the power points in the previous discussion. Those power points are:
The rebuilding of the Tabernacle of David and its purpose
The evolution of humanity
The rebuilding of the Tabernacle of David and its purpose is directly connected to the EVOLUTION of HUMANITY. As revealed in the previous discussion, the Tabernacle of David is purposed to aid in establishing a relationship with HASHEM. The relationship that is established with HASHEM effects both the experience and the manifestation that occurs in humanity. There are three distinct perspectives that we shall disclose in this treatise concerning the kind of relationships that can be experienced with HASHEM. Those relationships may be described as IGNORANCE, PERSONAL and IMPERSONAL.
The relationship termed IGNORANCE is descriptive of one that is completely unconscious of HASHEM. It is one that ascribes all manifestation in CREATION as being RANDOM and without CAUSE. From this perspective, things are perceived as existing without an underlying principle. It may be described as something coming from nothing. This IGNORANCE is the absence of the recognition of a CAUSE behind every EFFECT.
On the other hand, the relationship termed PERSONAL is descriptive of belief in a HIGHER POWER that is perceived to be EXTERNAL to the individual. Depending upon the tradition, the HIGHER POWER is perceived as one which will act favorably when appeased and unfavorably when opposed. The HIGHER POWER may possess IMMANENT or TRANSIENT qualities or both. These qualities are defined based upon the knowledge of CREATION and in CONTRAST to Its MANIFESTATION. Most traditions consider a PERSONAL GOD as the FIRST CAUSE of all things.
Finally we shall consider the perspective termed IMPERSONAL. The perspective termed IMPERSONAL is established upon the CONCEPT that all created things are a MANIFESTATION of a HIGHER POWER that possesses both IMMANENT and TRANSIENT QUALITIES. In other words, it is descriptive of the INVISIBLE becoming VISIBLE. This description presupposes the idea of the INFINITE becoming FINITE. The process of the INFINITE becoming FINITE is not the end, but rather a necessary step in the perfection of the INFINITE, yea, the INFINITE becomes FINITE in order to become INFINITE. The step of descension into the FINITE is to gain something that can not be experienced as INFINITE. Thus the IMPERSONAL becomes PERSONAL in order to return to the IMPERSONAL with the EXPERIENCE of IMPROVEMENT.
Another power point to establish is the evolution of humanity. In the previous discussion, it was disclosed that TIME and EVENTS are cyclic in nature. To be cyclic in nature implies that they repeat themselves. Since the human conscious experience occurs within TIME and EVENTS, it, too, must be cyclic. This EMET (truth) is confirmed in the following APHORISM, it is written, “A generation goes and a generation comes, but the earth endures forever. And the sun rises and the sun sets, then to its place it rushes; there it rises again. It goes toward the south and veers toward the north; the wind goes round and round, and on its rounds the wind returns. All the rivers flow into the sea, yet the sea is not full; to the place where the rivers flow, there they flow once more. All words are wearying, one becomes speechless; the eye is never sated with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. Whatever has been is what will be, and whatever has been done is what will be done. There is nothing new beneath the sun!” (Ecclesiastes 1:4-9) In this passage of scripture, it is disclosed that all events travel in a cycle. To emphasize the purpose of the knowledge in which EVENTS travel, it begins with the CONCEPT of GENERATIONS coming and going. No doubt, the mention of these CONCEPTS of the coming and going of GENERATIONS and the CYCLIC NATURE of EVENTS implies that they are the SAME. Just as EVENTS repeat THEMSELVES, the coming and going of the GENERATIONS repeat themselves, yea, today’s GENERATION is the reappearance of a past GENERATION. This EMET is confirmed by the divers experiences that manifest at BIRTH.
At the birth of those who are undergoing the HUMAN CONSCIOUS EXPERIENCE, there is an INEQUALITY. Some are born rich, others poor. Some are born with good health, some with bad health. Some are born with perfect bodies, some with birth defects. Some are born in families where advantage is experienced, some are born in disadvantaged. The differences go on and on. The INEQUALITY in DIFFERENCES is an INDICATION that birth is the product of a process other than the VOLITION of G-D. The process involves the JUSTICE of G-D. The justice of G-D rewards acts that are in congruency with HIM and punishes acts that oppose HIM. Understanding the quality of G-D’S justice explains why there is seemingly an INEQUALITY at BIRTH. Since generations experience a CYCLIC EVENT, they undergo the LIFE CYCLE of BIRTH and DEATH and BIRTH and DEATH continually. The JUSTICE of G-D effects the condition in which one is born. One is born bringing forth fruit of what was sown in the previous LIFE. What appears as INEQUALITY is the operation of the JUSTICE of G-D, which gives rise to understanding the purpose of cycling. The purpose of cycling is PERFECTION.
The idea that the purpose of cycling is perfection is based upon the meaning of DIVINE JUDGMENT. DIVINE JUDGMENT is G-D’S determinate counsel to ensure that what He has purposed shall come to pass. We travel on the CYCLE of BIRTH and DEATH to improve. Thus the conditions at birth are the best conditions for our IMPROVEMENT. The unfoldment of a state of improvement is what is implied by the EVOLUTION of humanity.
The final power point is an EXTINCT LEVEL EVENT. An EXTINCT LEVEL EVENT occurs when one is standing at the CROSSROADS of EVOLUTION and INVOLUTION. In other words, there are challenges designed by the MOST HIGH that give rise to facing EXTINCTION. When these challenges occur, we are destined to meet them with instructions that will engender EVOLUTION not INVOLUTION. These instruction lie on the courts of the Tabernacle of David.
The Tabernacle of DAVID may be described as the three conscious states that are experienced in the PHYSICAL BODY. Those states are UNCONSCIOUS, CONSCIOUS and G-D CONSCIOUSNESS. These CONSCIOUS states belong to the particular court that one is situated in. The outer court is the place of IGNORANCE. the INNER Court is the place of REASONING. The HOLY of HOLIES is the place of inspiration.
On the outer court, that is, the CONSCIOUSNESS of IGNORANCE, one is dependent upon someone or something to perceive G-D. In the inner court, one has developed a state of INDEPENDENCE through reasoning. Last, but not least, in the Holy of Holies is where a CONSCIOUS union with the DIVINE is ESTABLISHED. In this place, one experiences inspiration while occupying a state of INTERDEPENDENCY. In the state of INTERDEPENDENCY, one is empowered to manifest the unlimited potential that is within. No one can ascend into the upper levels of the Tabernacle without a commitment to oneself as a GIFT of G-D.
