The portion of Bamidbar is always read before Shavout. This week we have the ability to see how far we need to go, how much we need to break our shells in order to reach our final destination. Rav Ashlag reveals that one of the keys we need to transform is to connect with sparks of righteous souls called iburim. This Shabbat we have a special opportunity to gain the assistance of righteous souls. We also learn that many times we find the logic for why things should not happen. As Michael explains, we cannot fall into the trap of false logic.
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.
