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 MISHPATIM by placing our ATTENTION upon the following passage contained in the SIDRAH, it is written, “If a man will sell his daughter as a bondwoman, she shall not leave like the leave-taking of the slaves. If she is displeasing in the eyes of her master, who should have designated her for himself, he shall assist in her redemption; he shall not have the power to sell her to a strange man, for he had betrayed her. If he had designated her for his son, he shall deal with her according to the rights of the young women. If he shall take another for himself, he shall not diminish her food, her clothing, or her marital relationship. If he does not perform these three for her, she shall leave free of charge; without payment.” (Exodus 21:7-11) In this passage contained in TORAH, we are given a scenario disclosing the CIVIL LAW concerning how a father is to handle the affairs that accompany a marriage ARRANGEMENT. A marriage ARRANGEMENT has to do with PARENTAL SELECTION of a marriage rather than the choice of the GROOM or the BRIDE or BOTH. The LAW reveals the SUPERNAL will in both MONOGAMOUS and POLYGAMOUS relationships. 

The SCENARIO reveals that both the father and the master are responsible for the welfare of the daughter involved in the ARRANGEMENT. From the SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE, we are able to discern the PURPOSE of SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY, yea, within the COLLECTIVE SOUL there are DIFFERENT GRADES. These DIFFERENT GRADES are LEVELS of AUTHORITY belonging THEREUNTO. In the SCENARIO, the father and the master represent HIGHER AUTHORITIES while the daughter represents the LESSOR AUTHORITY. The revelation is that the HIGHER AUTHORITIES are responsible of the welfare of the LESSOR authorities. Without a doubt, this reveals that one of the purposes of AUTHORITY is to be responsible for the WELFARE of the LESSOR AUTHORITY. 

Since there is no HIGHER AUTHORITY than ECHAD and ALL other AUTHORITIES are DELEGATED by ECHAD, we can deduce that G-d is responsible for the welfare of ALL. Yea, it is written, “… HaShem supports all the fallen ones and straightens all the bent. The eyes of all look to You with hope and You give them their food in its proper time. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.” (Psalm 145:14-16) No doubt, the revelation of the PURPOSE of SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY, that is, the HIGHER AUTHORITY, is to look after the WELFARE of the LESSOR, is to aid in deliverance for FEAR, the ASSURANCE of PROVISIONS and the establishment of SUPERNAL TRUST. We are destined to both experience the EMET written by King David declaring that “I have not seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread,” and to be transformed into SUPPLY. Be ever mindful that to be RIGHTEOUS implies to let ECHAD be TRUE in ALL THINGS. An open hand both GIVES and RECEIVES.
