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.

Shalom, Shalom. We continue our focus upon the PARASHAT VAYAKHEL by placing our ATTENTION on the PURPOSE of the CONSTRUCT termed the MISHKAN (Tabernacle). The term Tent of Meeting is often employed to describe the TABERNACLE. No doubt this is indicative of Its PURPOSE. The PURPOSE is to be a place where the FINITE an engage or MEET with the INFINITE. In principle the TABERNACLE is like unto the PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL and MENTAL BODIES that clothe the HUMAN CONSCIOUS EXPERIENCE. This is based upon the EMET that when ECHAD created man, He blew HIMSELF as SOUL into it. Like the TABERNACLE is a place created for the purpose of experiencing ECHAD, so is the PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL and MENTAL BODIES, yea, they are created for the purpose of experiencing ECHAD.

The crafting of the COMPONENTS that when assembled under DIVINE INSTRUCTIONS would make up the TABERNACLE required both WISDOM and PRECISION. No doubt this is based upon the FUNCTION, that is, that the TABERNACLE was destined to be the PLACE where ERROR is to be dispelled by TRUTH as the result of MINISTERING TO G-D. At this point, it is important to note that ERROR is the cause of ALL SUFFERING. With the Jewish People, there is no merit in SUFFERING. Thus the TABERNACLE was created to be a PLACE of TRUTH, whereby becoming CONSCIOUS THEREOF, ONE MAY ASCEND OUT OF SUFFERING into the STATE OF BLISS, THAT IS, ETERNAL HAPPINESS.

As aforementioned, the PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL and MENTAL BODIES of the HUMAN CONSCIOUS EXPERIENCE are like unto the TABERNACLE making it a place where the ANSWER to ALL SUFFERING resides as well as the STATE of BLISS. The careful crafting of our BODIES is purposed to come into a CONSCIOUS UNION with ECHAD, that is, the PURE SOUL, that can be experienced within.

Our experiences are either EXTERNAL or INTERNAL. That which lies EXTERNAL to us is in a constant state of CHANGE. There is an aspect WITHIN that is CHANGELESS, that is, not subject to change. It is no small wonder that regardless to the changes we undergo, we yet experience that which is unaffected by the changes. The STATE of CONSTANT CHANGE is FINITE in nature, while on the other hand, this CHANGELESSNESS that is experienced within is INFINITE. Just as it took careful crafting to MANIFEST the DIVINE PRESENCE WITHOUT, it takes careful crafting to FIND the INFINITE within and become ONE with.

Becoming one with the INFINITE (CHANGELESS) STATE within is what engenders ASCENSION out of SUFFERING into BLISS, yea, for regardless to what goes on WITHOUT, it will not affect the CHANGELESS WITHIN.
