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.

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.
