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.

L’shana Tova Tikatevu. We commence this DEVAR TORAH by focusing upon the narrative contained in BERESHEIT chapter 21. During this High Holy Day, which is celebrated over a two day period in the exile, the energy is what is termed GEVURAH. The IVRI transliteration GEVURAH is translated to the word JUDGMENT. From the perspective of SPIRITUALITY, judgment is G-d’s determinate counsel that insures that what He has decreed will come to pass. From this perspective, there are two grades of judgment. The highest grade is termed GEVUROT, which is interpreted judgment that is tempered with kindness (CHESED). The lower grade which emanates from SITRA ACHRA (the other side) is termed DINIM, which is strict judgment, in that it is judgment coupled with GEVURAH. In other words, it is judgment doubled giving rise to the experience of blows that lead to suffering. The purpose of the SUFFERING is purification. The purification will lead to the unfoldment of what ECHAD, Blessed Be His Name, has decreed. The decree is that ADAM RISHON (the human conscious experience) will become a visible manifestation of ECHAD.

As aforementioned, the focus is on BERESHEIT chapter 21. This chapter is to be meditated upon on the first day of ROSH HASHANAH. On the second day of ROSH HASHANAH, the focus is upon chapter 22 of BERESHEIT. The narrative contained in chapter 21 discloses the RAZ (secret) to the manifestation of the unlimited potential that is concealed within. The secret rests upon the foundation of being able to discern the times.

The realm in which we occupy is one in which all events are predetermined. To substantiate this EMET (truth), read Eccl. 3:1-8. Understanding that all events are predetermined by ECHAD to occur at certain points in time and space, and to be given the revelation of WHEN is to be empowered to move in the MIRACULOUS. This is illustrated in the narrative of AVRAHAM and SARAH conceiving YITZCHAK in old age. AVRAHAM was 100 years old when the event occurred and SARAH was 90. In the natural world, their ages were beyond that of conception, but acting in harmony with the time appointed by ECHAD, they maximized their potential, giving birth to the impossible. Thus the RAZ to the unfoldment of the unlimited potential that is latent within is the discerning of times.

Likewise we have entered into a season, that is, a time in which that if we act in harmony with the ENERGY, we can manifest unlimited potential. The manifestation of one’s unlimited potential is the unfoldment of ECHAD’S decree, that we would become a visible manifestation of HIS invisible MIDDOT (qualities). Torah reveals how one is to conceive during this TIME. Thus to move in harmony with the energy, connect to a Spiritual Teacher that can guide you on the PATH of LIFE. It will lead to IMMORTALITY filled with joy and delight.
