  • Defeating the Opponent at the seed level
  • Jacob wrestling with the angel and confronting Esau
  • A name (shem) is the bridge to the soul (neSHAMA)
  • The essence of the Opponent is concealment
  • We are blind to the Opponent
  • Being fearful of the Opponent and acknowledging our hidden negativity
  • Growth and seeing more negativity each day
  • Seeing more negativity is a merciful way to remove it
  • Begging the Light  to help us see our negativity
  • Approaching situations with strength  and confidence or humility and kindness
  • Asking the Light to show us how to approach all difficulties
  • Sadness results in greater blindness
  • Prolonging our blessings by being vigilant against our Opponent
  • Humility by constantly searching for the Opponent in our lives
  • Jacob, the sciatic nerve, the 9th of Av and hatred for no reason
  • The Holy Temple represents a collective consciousness of messiah and peace on earth
  • Hating others and being blind to their Light
  • Beating ourselves up is not spiritual growth
