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 KORACH by placing our ATTENTION on the following passage found in the SIDRAH, it is written, “Moses spoke to the Children of Israel, and all their leaders gave him a staff for each leader, a staff for each leader, according to their fathers’ house, twelve staffs; and Aaron’s staff was among their staffs. Moses laid the staffs before HaShem in the Tent of Testimony. On the next day, Moses came to the Tent of the Testimony and behold! the staff of Aaron of the house of Levi had blossomed; it brought forth a blossom, sprouted a bud and almonds ripened. Moses brought out all the staffs from before HaShem to all the Children of Israel; they saw and they took, each man his staff. HaShem said to Moses: Bring back the staff of Aaron before the Testimony as a safekeeping, as a sign for rebellious ones; let their complaints cease from Me that they not die.” (Numbers 17:21-25)  In this passage of Torah, we are given an aspect of the SCENARIO REVEALING HASHEM’S APPROBATION of AARON as a SPIRITUAL LEADER in YISRAEL. No doubt the need for DIVINE APPROBATION in substantiating SPIRITUAL LEADER has to do with the profound effect that the teacher has upon the DESTINY of the student. A SPIRITUAL TEACHER can not merely teach the ASCENSION of OTHERS, but rather ADMINISTERS the EXPERIENCE that is obtained by occupying the HIGHER LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS. Without the experience, both the TEACHER and the STUDENT are destined to remain in the lower levels and continue in the experience of SUFFERING.

To prevent a continuance in the LOWER LEVELS of CONSCIOUSNESS and ASCEND into the HIGHER LEVELS where SUFFERING CEASES, HASHEM provided a TEST to be viewed publicly. The test was to take all of the STAVES that belong to the leadership, place them in the TENT of MEETING before the ARK, and the STAFF THAT G-d chooses is that of the SPIRITUAL LEADER. This PUBLIC TEST would enable BENEI YISRAEL to choose SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP that would aid them in reaching the goal of establishing a CONSCIOUS UNION with ECHAD.

On the other hand, failure to follow the SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP SENT BY ECHAD makes DESCENSION into the LOWER LEVELS of CONSCIOUSNESS inevitable. In these lower levels, suffering will continue ultimately bringing DESTRUCTION. Indeed those who you accompany with will have a PROFOUND EFFECT upon DESTINY.

The SCENARIO demonstrates the principle that when the STUDENT is READY, the TEACHER IS REVEALED. No doubt it is because ECHAD will disclose whom He has SENT.
