In Chapter 3, page 16 of The Light of Wisdom, Rav Ashlag explains that the difference between humans and animals is the ability of humans to say no to ourselves, to restrict. Meir Yeshurun explores in depth Rav Ashlag’s teachings, and points out that the more we restrict our reactive and negative behavior, the more we connect to the Light, drawing the energy of love and understanding to the entire creation. Meir also explains that the physical body is limited because it contains the lowest level of the Soul, so constant effort in our spiritual work is needed to affect change in all humanity.
Rav Ashlag, the founder of The Kabbalah Centre, was a visionary pioneer. He stood in the face of opposition and made it his mission to plead the case of studying this wisdom. Over the past few years more of Rav Ashlag’s writings have been making their way to the Kabbalah Centre. These new writings, which contain Rav Ashlag’s thoughts and explanations on a variety of topics are being brought to the public for the first time in this class. Join Senior Instructor Meir Yeshurun for this in-depth study of one of the most difficult, yet profound Kabbalistic texts and reveals the essence and central focus of our spiritual work.
