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 on the following passage contained in TORAH, it is written, “This day shall become a remembrance for you and you shall celebrate it as a festival for HaShem: for your generations as an eternal decree shall you celebrate it. For a seven day period shall you eat matzot, but on the previous day you shall nullify the leaven from your homes; for anyone who eats leavened food, that soul shall be cut off from Israel, from the first day to the seventh day.” Exodus 12:14,15 The question is, “How does the commandment not to eat leaven for seven days relate to LIBERATION?”

The LIBERATION that we are destined to experience is from the oppression of EGYPT (MITZRAYIM). Mitzrayim represents the conscious state of EGOISM. In the conscious state of EGOISM, the corporate SOUL has created a world of contrast. In the world of contrast, we experience temporary states of pleasure and suffering.

The world of contrast is the creation of the EGO. It may be compared to the process in which a CLAM creates a pearl. Something foreign enters into the CLAM. The CLAM reacts to the discomfort by creating ENAMEL around the discomfort thus producing a PEARL. Likewise the EGO has created a KIND of ENAMEL out of THOUGHT LIFE producing a FALSE SENSE of REALITY from the FIVE SENSES that CONCEALS the TRUE NATURE of the SOUL. Because the NATURE of the FALSE SENSE of REALITY is ENAMEL LIKE, i.e. INANIMATE, it takes distasteful events to break its hold.

This MITZRAYIM that we are destined to experience LIBERATION from in the UNFOLDMENT of the GOAL of CREATION commences with this idea. Therefore we are commanded to consume what is distasteful, that we might be mindful of what occurs on the PATH of LIFE which is LIBERATION.
