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 upon the scenario contained in the SIDRAH describing the event of YITZCHAK sending away YAACOB to LABAN the son of BETHUEL. It begins with the following statement, “…ויקרא יצחק אל–יעקב ויברך אתו ויצוהו”, which is interpreted, “So Isaac summoned Jacob and blessed him, he instructed him…” Genesis 28:1a  This unfoldment in the journey of our patriarch YAACOB is the effect of the deception employed in receiving the blessing of the firstborn. It was the decision of YITZCHAK to give BECHOR HA BECHORIM (the blessing of the firstborn) to ESAV despite the prophecy received by RIVKA disclosing “… and the elder shall serve the younger.” The deception engendered an atmosphere that threatened the life of YAACOB, thus he was sent to LABAN to receive a wife.

The instructions of AVRAHAM is what gives rise to ascension into the TRUTH of BEING. The TRUTH of BEING is that the SOUL is a SUPERNAL SPARK, that is, an individual aspect of ECHAD. The realization and actualization of the TRUTH of BEING commences with forgetting one’s past. Thus like AVRAHAM having to leave his father’s house, that is, the past, YAACOB being sent away from his father’s house would not be a hindrance to the realization and actualization of being. but rather an aid in his pursuit. To gain the awareness of PURE SOUL CONSCIOUSNESS, that is, our ONENESS with ECHAD, Blessed be His Name, required that one loses his egotistical grip on the PRESENT WORLD. In body consciousness, one cleaves to the corporeal creating a false identification. Then RESHIMO manages us in such a way that as time passes, we gain an awareness that we can cleave on to nothing that is phenomenal. In this way the egotistical existence is like a DREAM. The instructions of AVRAHAM discloses that losing one’s grip on this world of illusion gives rise to the actualization of our ONENESS with ECHAD. The experience is one of LIFE without the possibility of DEATH whereas one enters into a regenerative state of constant improvement. Within it is experienced as STILLNESS. Within it is the revelation of OLAM HA BA.
