Lesson Highlights

  • The Four Phases:

1. Chochmah, The First Flow: Sharing. The Vessel does not yet have a real desire, but is willing to receive.
2. Binah, The First Awakening: Awakening of the injected Desire to Share and Light of Mercy.
3. Zeir Anpin, The Second Flow: Ability to share (Light of Mercy) becomes manifest.
4.Malchut, The Central Point, The Second Awakening: Awakening of desire for the Light of Wisdom, Real Desire to Receive and completion of the Vessel, also known as the Second Awakening.

  • Phases 1 & 3 are giving and Masculine because Light flows from the Creator, Phases 2 & 4 are feminine since they awaken from the Vessel
  • To the degree we remove ourselves from the process, we allow the Light of the Creator, the Or deChochmah to flow. 
  • To whatever degree we think that we’re doing, and inject ourselves into that revelation, we cause only Or deChasadim to be revealed.  So even the greatest thing that we can accomplish, as long as we’re involved in it, it can only be Or deChasadim.  And obviously, that is a tremendously lower level than the real Light of the Creator, than the Or deChochmah.
  • The Central Point of the Endless World is a true Desire to Receive
  • Feeling the Pain of Others

About This Course

One of the most profound studies The Kabbalah Centre offers to our community, Ten Luminous Emanations is a study of the writings of master kabbalist Rav Ashlag that discuss the mysteries of life, the Creator and the cosmos. As Rav Berg explains, Ten Luminous Emanations is the software, that permits us to tap into what is already known out there in the universe that is structured, that knows no chaos. It is not the inability of the software or the hardware that may change our lives and enhance our lifestyles, but rather that if we could have the best software program and the best hardware. If I do not know how to press the buttons, the results will never be there. Join Michael Berg, Co-Director of The Kabbalah Centre, for this advanced study to elevate your consciousness and shift your perception of the world.
