Lesson Highlights

  • Making ourselves small in the physical world to be big in the eternal world
  • Eternal is the opposite of temporary pleasure
  • Connecting to immortality
  • The cave of Machpela: a link between the physical and metaphysical worlds
  • Abraham paid 400 silver coins: connecting to desires or cravings
  • 400 spiritual worlds and 400 corresponding impure forces that bring chaos into our lives
  • Negative actions draw impure forces to us
  • Our blessings are gifts to be shared
  • Using gifts for pride attracts pain and chaos
  • Pride is a form of temporary pleasure and fulfillment
  • Ego causes small desire
  • Fighting ego by wanting more than what the ego is willing to give us
  • Immortality: connecting to our soul which has unlimited desires
  • Abraham desired to connect to the full extent of the Light
  • Abraham could see what was special about the cave, Efron could not
  • Everything is revealed to its owner
  • The Light and opportunities are shown to us when we have a greater desire
  • Small desire and the inability to see the blessings that are intended for us

Lesson Description

The portion of Chayei Sarah connects us to the energy of immortality, but how is immortality relevant and practical in our daily life? Join Eitan as provides us with the tools and consciousness to go beyond the limitations of our ego and connect with the great desires of our soul so that we can connect with the blessings and continuity that are meant for us to experience in all areas of our lives.
