Lesson Highlights

  • The darkness of Esau
  • The central spiritual teaching according to Rav Akiva and Ben Azzai
  • Loving your neighbor as yourself versus treating your neighbor as God
  • A Soul leaving this world and The Angel of Death
  • Four questions to ask ourselves
  • The totality of the Light exists in every moment
  • Lack of a vessel: Lack of desire
  • Isaac and digging of the wells: Digging for the lack
  • Two ways desire is awakened: Judgment and study
  • Greater the desire (vessel), Greater the Light

Lesson Description

Join Michael as he reveals how one’s desire is equal to one’s vessel and the only two ways in which we can go about creating this vessel. The greater the foundation, the greater the building. The greater the vessel, the greater the Light and our ability to manifest blessings in our lives.

About This Course

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.
