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.

KORACH

Shalom Shalom. This week’s DEVAR TORAH is KORACH which is the name of a person that caused rebellion Israel.
•    A name is something that has been given by the Creator in harmony with purpose. Purpose has been predetermined; no one can change it. We are immortal with a name that expresses purpose. We have been given the assignment to become visible. Work in harmony with purpose and the universe will work in harmony for us. We have everything necessary to do our purpose.
•    Dinim - strict judgment happens when the window of repentance is closed.
•    We have both an individual purpose and a corporate purpose. Corporate purpose is to be TIKKUN OLAM (repairers of the world); it is related to location for success. We are to return to the Land and fulfill the promise. This is the dream of Abraham. The fulfillment of dream/purpose comes through a multitude of purposeful activity. Purposeful activity is to be in harmony with purpose. All events that come to us are predetermined by the Creator. We are to respond with purpose. The event in this portion was predetermined and necessary. When an event comes to us, we have a choice of responding with purpose or reacting with the ego.
•    When you have Direct Experience, don’t think you know everything. It is not wise. It is a gift to use the mind in the right way. Sometimes when we see something, it looks unfair. There is One Life: things are destined to work a certain way. The universe is cycling - constantly balancing itself out. Wisdom is gained by keeping the door open, by not thinking you know everything. Go to Stillness, not memory.
•    More people die after Korach. Judgment brings a balance to the universe. Their intention came under judgment. They will cycle again and could come back right away under the same instruction. Intention is before desire. It is below the barrier. You have control over intention (the heart). If you don’t understand something, just listen, then understanding will come. Choose what thoughts to cling to. Use the mind in the right way to reflect the Creator. Aaron offered up incense, not animals, to stop the plague, to have an ascended state. Intention has to go up in smoke; intention from both the ego and the higher levels. The Creator is the Conductor - He knows what He is doing.
•    Korach said Moshe and Aaron had no right to elevate themselves because everyone in Israel is holy. He was correct. Isaiah 42:5,6. Everyone in Israel is called of God. We are called to be a light to the world. We are accountable. Even though everyone is Israel is called, there are a few that are chosen. Every tribe was represented by a staff with their name on it. The staffs were taken into the Tent of Meeting, a place of intensity. In this place of intensity, Aaron’s staff was the only one to blossom and produce fruit. In other words, the hidden life of the Creator that was inside came to the outside. This is what happens when one is chosen. The other staffs (tribes) remained unchanged; the hidden life in them didn’t come out - they were not chosen.

SHELACH

Shalom Shalom. This week’s DEVAR TORAH is SHELACH which means send.
•     We travel in cycles going from one cycle to another cycle ascending up the SULAM (ladder). When the cycle is complete then there is a test. Going into the Land to spy was a test. The challenges should have brought about rearrangement. When they saw what was on the next level, they focused on the past and their limitations. Because they failed the test, they were not able to go into the Land/the next level. Answer the challenge with stillness and it moves you in an upward direction. Be consistent and don’t complain. Then they got into impatience. Patience is enduring without complaining. Complaining takes them into the wilderness for the next 40 years. After complaining, they move into defiance because of their identification with the ego.
•    CHAYAH I: the unfoldment of miracles. CHAYAH II: everything is a miracle. We are in a universe of becoming. Every event is a miracle aiding us to the Goal of Creation. CHAYAH II takes away complaining.
•    We need to separate from that which is corporeal (body consciousness) which is pain/pleasure. Being conscious of the BEGED (body) is to be weak. Being conscious of the Soul, you can’t be defeated.
•    We have to establish firmness - not being body consciousness. When you are no longer conscious of the body, you are able to maintain Pure Soul Consciousness (CHAYAH I, CHAYAH II and YECHIDAH). There is a sense of peace, stillness, bliss. Walk in firmness and the solution will appear when needed. Don’t claim firmness if you don’t have it, it is defiance. Faith will not deliver you.  
•    Torah is ETZ CHAIM (Tree of Life). We are to maintain Pure Soul Consciousness. Pure Soul Consciousness is maintained by eating of the Tree of Life.  
•    Offering bread to ECHAD is to sustain high levels of consciousness. Until you have completely entered in, you have experiences of the ego. Inner engineering - eat the bread of Torah (Root, RAZ), sustain it in the mind until it is automatic in the mind. A time will come when it is automatic - no longer wrestle with discrimination.
•    Unintentional sin is something that occurs with no inner intention. Intentional sin is idol worship (you and God), wrong perception, abuse of things through ignorance. Intentional sin is not allowed in a Jewish community.  Intentional sin wars against ascension.
•    No one has ever been stoned to death by the Jewish People for violating Shabbat. Picking up wood is insignificant, but doing something insignificant puts the whole universe against you. The Shabbat is a day of rest, to stay focused on the higher levels of consciousness.
•    After the Fall, Adam worked to sustain himself, not to do purpose. Purpose always out trumps work to sustain yourself. We are created to do purpose. Everybody is created to rest. Not everyone is created to work, but to refine the mind and establish it on the planet. They establish high levels of thought that affects nations. It takes a dedicated life, devotion. He does it every day not just on Shabbat. Totally devoted and there is no work.
