In this lesson on the portion of Shoftim, Michael reveals that the first pull or initial inclination that we have in any given situation can either connect us to the Light of the Creator or pull us away. We learn that feelings of sadness and fear are our misused inclinations coming back to us as opportunities, so that we can transform them and connect to the Light of the Creator.
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.
