Lesson Highlights

  • The Vessel, the Desire to Receive is the source of darkness
  • Everything comes from the four elements: Fire, Air, Water, Earth
  • Going from Light to Darkness is a slow process
  • Even the greatest darkness has a seed in the process of creation in the Light of the Creator. Having the consciousness that the Light of the Creator is in the darkness has the power to remove the darkness
  • A Desire to Receive can only be manifest when it comes from the Vessel itself
  • A True Desire is only when the Vessel awakens the desire
  • Owning our Vessel; experiencing ups and downs means we do not have a true vessel
  • A vessel must go through the four phases for it to be considered a true vessel
  • The desire of everything including the perfection of our world is included in the Endless World
  • The Thought of Creation’s manifestation is called the Malchut of Ein Sof, the manifestation of Ein Sof or the vessel of Ein Sof

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.
