Lesson Highlights

  • Doubt is the enemy
  • Information versus knowledge
  • Connecting to the world of certainty
  • The world of illusion

Lesson Description

Rav Berg reveals how through the story of Balak and Bilam, we learn that the seed of chaos in our lives, no matter what form it takes is doubt. The last letters of the names Bilam and Balak spell Amalek, one of the nations that the Israelites fought while in the desert, which is a codeword for doubt. To overcome doubt, we must realize that doubt is our real enemy and that the world around us is an illusion. By connecting to the Tree of Life reality, we can connect to certainty and remove chaos from our lives.
