The portion of Behar-Bechukotai is the final portion of the Book of Leviticus and encapsulates the energy of Binah. As we move closer to the time of the Final Redemption, parallel realities exist. One is called Oy (chaos) and the other is called Ashrei (order). As Karen reveals, the curses that are mentioned in this portion are actually referring to the time we are living in. Anything that has been built on sand, that does not have a firm foundation is experiencing chaos. Our job is to take the Light from the Darkness, to remove space and bring that Light with us into the world of Ashrei.
One of the major spiritual connections kabbalists make on the Sabbath is the reading of a weekly Bible portion. These consciousness lectures present lessons on each week's portion to elevate our consciousness and create awareness of the spiritual energy and gifts that are available through the reading of a Torah Scroll. With greater awareness and an awakened consciousness, we can connect to the Light revealed each week and use it as support in our ongoing spiritual work.
