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 commence this DEVAR TORAH by focusing our attention upon the idea that the portion opens with reiterating instructions that had been given in PARASHAT VAYIKRA. The opening discussion discloses the procedures to be followed by the KOHANIM in the administration of the OLAH (burnt offering), MINCHAH (meal offering), SHELAMIM (peace offering), CHATAT (sin offering) and the ASHAM (guilt offering). The question is, Why the repetition of instructions concerning these offerings.

There is a SPIRITUAL LAW that declares, repetition creates a stirring. No doubt STIRRINGS are purposed to create COMPETITION. From the higher perspectives, COMPETITION is destined to aid in the maximizing of potential. Since in reality, we are ONE BEING termed ADAM KADMON, competition between the individual aspects would be detrimental. The destruction is based upon the idea that competition between individual aspects is DIVISION. That which is DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF is on a pathway of DESTRUCTION. Thus the COMPETITION that is experienced between individual aspects must be TRANSFORMED in order to be productive. The TRANSFORMATION is that to maximize one’s potential, one must compete against ONE’S SELF.

Competing with one’s self is what gives rise to experiencing the state of constant self improvement. Thus the repetition of instruction is to encourage competing with ONE’S SELF by implementing a standard that is immutable regardless to the external pressures that are applied. Thus the repeating of instruction employing different descriptions is to aid in understanding that the principle of an instruction given as a standard is to remain immutable regardless of the external challenges that may be experienced in order to effect a constant state of improvement.
