Moshe Rebeynu

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 SHEMOT by focusing our ATTENTION upon the following passage contained within the SIDRAH, it is written, “Moses was shepherding the flock of Jethro, his father-in-law, the minister of Midian; he guided the flock toward the (pasture in the) Wilderness, and he came to the Mountain of God to Horeb. There appeared an angel of HaShem to him in a flame of fire from within the thorn bush. He saw and indeed, the thorn bush was burning in the fire but the thorn bush was not consumed. Moses said (to himself), I will move (from here) now and I will look at the great spectacle that why doesn’t the thorn bush burn? HaShem saw that he was moving to look; and call to him did God from within the thorn bush and said, Moses, Moses, and he replied, Here I am.” (Exodus 3:1-4) This passage contained within TORAH is the commencement of the SCENARIO of the CALL of Moshe to his SUPERNAL PURPOSE. The visual given in the EPIPHANY was destined to be a guiding principle to aid Moshe in ITS unfoldment. No doubt this EMET rests upon the SPIRITUAL LAW, IMAGE CREATES DESIRE. The IMAGE of the THORN BUSH burning yet not consumed was the SUPERNAL PURPOSE that was given to Moshe Rebeynu. This was the process that he was to undergo before AM YISRAEL. To MANIFEST this before AM YISRAEL, the NAVI was given agents of TRANSFORMATION placed under his authority. Those agents were a STAFF that could transform into a SERPENT, CHANGING water into blood and the ability to place his hand within his bosom  changing the condition of his SKIN. The EMET, i.e. that not only was Moshe given that task of SELF TRANSFORMATION, but also the instruments to effect the CHANGE, was destined to aid in building CONFIDENCE in the children of YISRAEL that they are equipped to make the TRANSFORMATION into a NATION and ASCEND to the PROMISED LAND.

Without a doubt, the fire that was to be upon Moshe yet not consume HIM, REPRESENTED the EXTREME CHALLENGES that he was to undergo and yet not experience destruction. Like the THORN BUSH that burned with fire and yet not CONSUMED, the EXTREME CHALLENGES UNDERGONE by Moshe would cause YISRAEL to consider and receive the message of DELIVERANCE that would come forth from WITHIN. To be a light in OLAM is not the ceasing of CHALLENGE, but rather the opposite, yea, it is to BURN and yet not be consumed, but rather to be TRANSFORMED into a Messenger that gives rise to DELIVERANCE.
