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 opening scenario of the parashat. The narrative is a depiction of the work of LISHMA. We are told that BALAK the son of ZIPPOR, king of  MOAB saw what ISRAEL had done to the AMORITES and that his subjects had become frightened. The fear gave rise to a meeting between the eldership of MOAB and the MIDIAN. The reaction was to hire BALAAM, the prophet of the nations, to curse ISRAEL. 

From the perspective of the ROOT LANGUAGE of TORAH, the nations of OLAM (the world) represent the points in the heart. These points are equated to TAYAG MITZVOT, that is, the 613 commandments contained in TORAH. The 613 points in the heart are the desires of the nations. They are opposite of the desires of ECHAD, which are described as SUPERNAL INTENTIONS.

In order to ATTAIN the GOAL of CREATION which is the transformation of the GOLEM (physical body) to the ETERNAL IMMORTAL STATE, the 613 points in the heart that are the desires of the nations must undergo an ASCENSION. The result of the ASCENSION is what is termed the EQUIVALENCY of FORM. In other words, the GOLEM is destined to manifest the hidden qualities of the CREATOR that is latent within. The ASCENSION that gives rise to the transformation of the desires of the nations commences with the revelation that our souls are individual aspects of ECHAD, that is, one with G-d. The revelation of the SUPERNAL NATURE of the SOUL is what is termed LISHMA (for her sake). Once the enlightenment of LISHMA occurs, one can begin the WORK of LISHMA, that is, the transformation of the other 612 points into SUPERNAL INTENTION.

To effect the work of LISHMA, three components are required. Those components are a TEACHER, TORAH and a COMMUNITY. In particular, the TEACHER must be able to instruct in the ROOT LANGUAGE of TORAH in order to provide the instruction to be embodied in the work of LISHMA.
The portion discloses that once LISHMA is experienced which is the revelation of the TRUE IDENTIFICATION of the SOUL, it can not be cursed. In other words, the revelation of the SOUL is the COMMENCEMENT of the unfoldment of the ETERNAL IMMORTAL STATE with the GOAL of EQUIVALENCY of FORM. The conscious attainment in the enlightenment cannot be cursed but will remain throughout the unfoldment of the process, yea, ISRAEL the revelation of the SOUL once gained can never be LOST.
