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 SHOFTIM by placing our ATTENTION upon the following passage found in the SIDRAH, it is written, “If there will be found among you in one of your cities, which HaShem, your God, gives you, a man or woman who commits what is evil in the eyes of HaShem, your God, to violate His covenant, and he will go and serve gods of others and prostrate himself to them, or to the sun or to the moon or to any host of heaven, which I have not commanded, and it will be told to you and you will hear; then you shall investigate well, and behold! it is true, the testimony is correct - this abomination was done in Israel - then you shall remove that man or that woman who did this evil thing, to your cities - the man or the woman - and you shall pelt them with stones, so that they will die.” (DEUTERONOMY 17:2-5) In this passage found in Torah, we are given the mechanics to be employed in PRAYER (TEFFILAH) on how to rid oneself from the experience of NEGATIVITY and EGOCENTRIC SENSITIVITY. It is further disclosed that when this mechanic is employed by HOST SOULS (NESHIMOT CHALLIOT) in the CORRECTION, it engenders a TRANSFORMATION of QUALITIES in the COLLECTIVE.

Witnessing a QUALITY that is based on the DESIRES of OLAM (the world) external to ONESELF in reality is beholding a QUALITY that belongs to the EGO. This EMET is based upon the idea that all of humanity comprises ONE COLLECTIVE SOUL. Thus to CORRECT the QUALITY that is SEEMINGLY experienced as being EXTERNAL is executed by CORRECTING ONESELF. This CORRECTION is done by CONFESSION, that is, embracing it as ONE’S OWN. EGOISM will oppose this operation by presenting the QUALITY as SOMETHING that is SEPARATED and OUTSIDE of the SELF. In truth, the WITNESS is that the QUALITY is not OUTSIDE of ONESELF because each SOUL is a PART of ONE COLLECTIVE SOUL. Thus when the WITNESS OCCURS as the experience of REALIZATION, the pelting with STONES is done by CONFESSION. The SIDRAH reveals that when this MECHANIC is employed in the prayers of the HOST SOUL (ISRAEL), then the QUALITIES in the COLLECTIVE (CITY) are transformed. Therefore as Jews, we are empowered to transform civilization through SELF CORRECTION which gives rise to the fulfillment of our CORPORATE PURPOSE of being TIKKUN OLAM.
