  • The Sin of Adam and Eve was to add to the instruction and system of the Creator

  • Moving to the next level within our own path and reach
  • Defining religiosity
  • Raising and elevating children for who they are
  • Looking outside of ourselves prevents us from looking inward and correcting ourselves
  • Inspiration versus addiction: Learning from or idolizing others
  • Pain and suffering is designed to push us to change
  • Repentance (teshuvah) and transformation
  • Cleansing the negativity we cause by feeling the pain of others
  • Fleeing from pain is the only reason we will truly transform
  • Meditation of feeling the pain caused by our negativity
  • The Erev Rav used Aaron because they needed to connect to a higher energy
  • Deep craving to bring change in the world and in our own lives
  • Breaking personal klipot in the spiritual realm to effect real change in the physical realm
