Lesson Highlights

  • Sleep is a connection to 1/60 of the energy of death
  • King David never went to sleep after midnight when energy of death is stronger
  • Death cleanses negativities: identifying our negativity before sleep cleanses us so that death is not required
  • Admitting , acknowledging and taking responsibility for our negativity on a daily basis
  • Rav Moshe Chaim Luzzatto’s Path of the Just, Chapter 3 “The Divisions of Watchfulness”
  • Spiritual darkness causes us to be blind to our issues
  • Then we think that which is right is wrong and that which is wrong is right
  • Feeling excited about change and transformation
  • Rav Shlomo Yitzhaki’s (Rashi) Commentary and the process of disconnection
  • Stops learning spiritual lessons
  • Stops doing positive actions based on the study
  • Begins to resent to those who are doing good things
  • Begins to hate those who are doing spiritual work
  • Actively prevents others from connecting through spiritual work
  • Denies that the spiritual actions have any benefit
  • Denies the existence of the Light altogether
  • Remaining alert against laziness and how easy it is to fall
  • The spiritual work is a war against the Opponent within
  • Spiritual actions give us opportunities to do more spiritual actions and negative actions give us opportunities to do more negative actions
  • Counting the nation of Israel: counting anything is normally a limitation related to evil eye
  • Seeing the good in others 
  • Identifying where our heart is closed
  • Opening our hearts to others opens the gate to blessing in our lives
  • Human nature is to run away from pain and to go towards pleasure
  • Time as distance between cause and effect: there is no time from the Creator’s point of view
  • Envisioning the blessing allows us to open our hearts more easily
  • Shrinking time: Elevated consciousness allows us to feel the future in the present
  • Story of the man, the priest robes and the fragrance of heaven
  • Elevating our consciousness so that we can see the future now: the power of the Zohar
  • Shavuot: freedom from death and the power of water

Lesson Description

In this class on the portion of Bamidbar, Eitan discusses tools we can use to elevate our consciousness and open our hearts to blessings.  When we close our hearts to others, spiritual darkness causes us to disconnect, but by remaining alert and turning to the Zohar, we can connect to blessings by shrinking time and space.

The Zohar class is a weekly journey to understand the energy and challenges that will confront us during the week and how we can elevate our consciousness to prevent chaos from occurring in our lives.
