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 VAYEIRA by focusing our ATTENTION on the following passage contained within the SIDRAH, it is written, “Abraham arose early in the morning to the place where he had stood before HASHEM. And he gazed down upon Sodom and Gomorrah and the entire surface of the land of the plain; and saw and behold! the smoke of the earth rose like the smoke of a kiln. And so it was when God destroyed the cities of the plain that God remembered Abraham; so He sent Lot from amidst the upheaval when He overturned the cities in which Lot had lived.” (Genesis 19:27-29) In this passage of TORAH, what is being described in the LANGUAGE OF THE BRANCHES is the relationship of the TEACHER and STUDENT. It is this relationship that has been predetermined by the SUPERNAL that gives rise to the STUDENT’S ASCENSION into PURE SOUL CONSCIOUSNESS.

There are three components that are essential to the ATTAINMENT of PURE SOUL CONSCIOUSNESS. Those components are TORAH, a TEACHER and a COMMUNITY whose pursuit is THE GOAL of CREATION. The GOAL of CREATION is to become ONE with ECHAD.
As aforementioned, the passage contained in the SIDRAH is a revelation of the relationship of the TEACHER and the STUDENT. In this case, AVRAHAM who is the TEACHER has ATTAINED a HIGH LEVEL of CONSCIOUSNESS that enabled him to see into the CAUSE, i.e. PURE SOUL CONSCIOUSNESS. PURE SOUL CONSCIOUSNESS is descriptive of the HOLY of HOLIES in MISHKAHN DAVID. Entrance into the CONSCIOUS STATE termed the HOLY of HOLIES may be experienced as sensing what has been predetermined by the SUPERNAL. Is is AVRAHAM’S ATTAINMENT OF THIS STATE that is shared with his STUDENT, LOT. In other words, LOT is able to benefit by the ATTAINMENT of HIS TEACHER. This reveals that the principle of the relationship of a TEACHER and STUDENT in SPIRITUALITY is that the STUDENT is able to experience the ATTAINMENT of the TEACHER until he has ascended into the same level of ATTAINMENT.

The ASCENSION into the same level of ATTAINMENT by the STUDENT to that of the TEACHER requires effort. The effort is that the STUDENT must suppress his EGO and receive INSTRUCTIONS that may seem to OPPOSE. The OPPOSITION is experienced as the result of the EGO being opposite of ECHAD. Thus the revelation of the INSTRUCTION either grows the EGO or gives rise to experiencing the CONCEALED QUALITIES of ECHAD.

Within CREATION, the SUPERNAL is experienced as REVEALED or CONCEALED. When the SUPERNAL is experienced as CONCEALED, the sensation is one of suffering. The suffering in reality is the pouring out of INFINITE BLESSINGS that give rise to the TRANSFORMATION of the vessel from being one of reception to one of bestowal. It may be compared to water that is being poured into a balloon. The more water that is poured into the balloon, the more the balloon will stretch.

As demonstrated in LOT, the breaking off of a CONNECTION with ONE’S TEACHER will lead to a STATE of perpetual confusion, yea, the connections that are built between the TEACHER and the STUDENT, as well as STUDENTS with STUDENTS are ETERNAL, yea, for we are ONE COLLECTIVE soul comprised of TEACHERS and STUDENTS.
