Lesson Highlights

  • Bread of Shame: We get true pleasure through sharing. The goal is to reach a level where we get true pleasure from giving.
  • We should never limit our pleasure, but our goal is to have our pleasure come from sharing
  • We came into this physical world to transform our Desire to Receive for the Self Alone. Every detail of our life is geared toward this goal
  • Vessels of the Desire to Receive for the Self Alone can only feel lack in our world
  • We do not like movement. Our nature is that of the Light of the Creator that wants to constantly be at peace, we do not like hard work and we can never take pleasure in the physicality of our world
  • A tzadik understands the purpose of Creation and our purpose in this world; which is to create this new vessel of Desire to Share.
  • The drive to fulfill ourselves is from the Light of the Creator, our essence
  • Everything is one unified thought

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.
