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.

EIKEV (con't)

Shalom, Shalom. We continue our focus upon the PARASHAT EIKEV with the implication of the statement made by the NAVI MOSHE declaring, “You shall remember the entire road on which HaShem your God led you these forty years in the Wilderness so as to afflict you, to test you, to know what is in your heart whether you would observe His commandments or not.” Deuteronomy 8:2 To understand the implication, one must be mindful that TORAH is not speaking of the PRESENT WORLD, but rather it is a revelation of OLAM HA BA, that is, the world to come.

Understanding OLAM HA BA is a revelation. The revelation is a disclosure of the process of evolution that is undergone by the human conscious experience referred to in Jewish spirituality as ADAM RISHON. The EMET (truth) that we are undergoing a process of evolution can be seen in the observation of nature. For instance, the process of a caterpillar evolving into a butterfly is an example. The caterpillar is an entity of the animate world that moves by INSTINCT. The INSTINCT of the caterpillar guides it on the ground where it receives nourishment, shelter, and the like, until NATURE that is external to it applies the right pressure to cause it to cocoon itself. The cocooning of itself is a process that it undergoes to enter into a higher level of existence. The next step is the destruction of the cocoon that was created instinctively. The destruction of the COCOON reveals that a METAMORPHOSIS has taken place. The METAMORPHOSIS discloses a new level of existence above the ground, flying in the AIR. This quality of life, that is, evolution, is present in the human conscious experience. Because we possess VOLITION which is above INSTINCT, we are empowered to participate in our EVOLUTION consciously.

This is the implication of the instructions given by the NAVI MOSHE to BENEI YISRAEL (the Children of Israel), yea, the remembering of the entire road has to do with the concept that our history repeats itself for the purpose of SELF-REALIZATION. Self-Realization is the disclosure that the SOUL is SUPERNAL in nature with the purpose of causing the physical body to become equivalent in nature. We are destined to become ONE WITH ECHAD in the physical form.
