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 narrative of the Golden Calf that is contained within the SIDRAH. The narrative of the Golden Calf commences with the following description, it is written, “The people saw that Moses had delayed in descending the mountain and the people gathered around Aaron and said to him, Rise up, make for us gods that will go before us, for this man Moses who brought us up from the land of Egypt we do not know what became of him.” Exodus 32:1. The opening of the narrative is the beginning of a riddle that unfolds within the process of HITPASHTUT. HITPASHTUT is the IVRI (Hebrew) transliteration for the development of G-dliness. D’MUT ADAM, which is the image of man, is destined to become B’TZELEM ELOHIM, which is the image and likeness of G-d. B’TZELEM ELOHIM is the next step of evolution that the human conscious experience is destined to undergo. This evolution is one of the BEGED, that is, the clothing of the NESHAMAH (soul). The BEGED will evolve into a visible manifestation of ECHAD, Blessed Be His Name, which is a transformation from MORTALITY to IMMORTALITY. What occurred with creation of the Golden Calf compromised the unfoldment, leaving the people in the cycle of birth, life and death. YISRAEL is the firstborn SON of G-d, thus destined to evolve first among the sons of Adam.

What brought about the Jewish people remaining in the cycle of birth, life and death in the narrative of the Golden Calf? The answer to this riddle is disclosed in the following statement contained in the SIDRAH, it is written, “He took it (the golden earrings) from their hands and bound it up in a cloth and fashioned it into a molten calf. They said, This is your god, O Israel, which brought you up from the land of Egypt.” Exodus 32:4. This statement reveals that they, although liberated from PHARAOH’S influence, remained enslaved to the thoughts of the past. Enslavement to the thoughts of the past is to live past in the present. This is the foundational thinking belonging to the cycle of birth, life and death. This perception of the present is what is termed MOCHIN DEKATNUT, which is a limited perception. To ascend out of the cycle of birth, life and death is to elevate into MOCHIN DEGADLUT, which is an expanded perception whereas the future is the awareness of one’s present.

In the narrative, the death sentence is the recompense of living in remembrance. Thus the judgment of perishing by the sword and plagues was implemented. To ascend into the perception of MOCHIN DEGADLUT required a fresh flow of HASHPAAH (flow of influence) from the Spiritual Leader predetermined by ECHAD. This will engender YAH ELET (elevation and expansion) into the next level of evolution whose impetus is MOCHIN DEGADLUT.
