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 following prophetic utterance contained in the SIDRAH. It is written, “HaShem put an utterance in Balaam’s mouth, and said, Go back to Balak, and thus shall you say. He returned to him and behold! he was standing by his burnt-offering, he and all his officers of Moab. He declaimed his parable and said: From Aram, Balak, king of Moab, led me, from the mountains of the east, ‘Come curse Jacob for me, come bring anger upon Israel.’ How can I curse? - God has not cursed. How can I anger? - HaShem is not angry. For from its origins, I see it rock-like, and from hills do I see it. Behold! it is a nation that will dwell in solitude and not be reckoned among the nations.” Numbers 23:5-9. The narrative in context with this prophetic utterance is that Balak the King of Moab had attempted to hire the NAVI Bilaam to curse YISRAEL. Bilaam sought permission from ECHAD, Blessed be His Holy Name, concerning the matter. ECHAD granted permission based upon the promise that Bilaam would only speak that which the Creator will reveal unto him. Employing the OLAH (burnt) KORBANOT (offerings) at the sight of the first elevation, the revelation of YISRAEL is disclosed. The disclosure is that from the SUPERNAL PERSPECTIVE, YISRAEL dwells alone, not to be reckoned with the rest of the nations of OLAM (the world).

The revelation that YISRAEL is not to be reckoned with the rest of the nations of OLAM is not one that views us as being better than the rest of the sons of ADAM. Rather it is a disclosure of the ATTAINMENT and PURPOSE of YISRAEL. The term YISRAEL is indicative of possessing the revelation of being ONE WITH G-d. In other words, it is the realization that the SOUL is an individual aspect of ECHAD. The SOUL is DEATHLESS, that is, ETERNAL, IMMORTAL and INVISIBLE possessing the INFINITE MIDDOT (qualities) of the CREATOR. Because of the different grades of the SOUL, all do not possess the revelation. Those who possess the revelation and have actualized IT by attaining the consciousness of the HIGHER GRADES of the SOUL are YISRAEL. When YISRAEL is viewed as being biological, it is assimilated and reckoned with the rest of the nations of OLAM.

The ATTAINMENT, which is the realization and actualization of being ONE WITH G-d is accompanied by the purpose of being TIKKUN OLAM, that is, the repairers of the world. The TOHU (chaos) that is darkness that is being experienced by OLAM is destined to be transformed into LIGHT (OHR). This transformation of DARKNESS into LIGHT is the corporate purpose of YISRAEL. The CONSCIOUSNESS of BEING ONE with ECHAD is what empowers YISRAEL to perform the assignment. YISRAEL has been given the assignment that belongs to the Angel of LIGHT, that is, to guard ETZ CHAIM (the Tree of Life) and administer it to the nations of OLAM.
