Lesson Highlights

  • The purpose of the Ten Commandments
  • Raising our consciousness to tap into the Light
  • Connecting to the material and non-material worlds through the Holy Temple
  • The difference between keeping "my statutes" and "keeping my commandments"
  • Statutes correspond to Malchut and harsh judgement
  • Keeping the statutes implies going against our comfort zone and keeping the commandments is dependent on keeping the statutes
  • True blessings are earned by going beyond our comfort zone
  • Our hard work and finding the Light: Rav Ashlag's criteria for whether or not our blessings come from the Light
  • Finding Light indicates receiving Light from hard work beyond our highest expectations
  • Maintaining a consciousness of finding Light and attracting blessings
  • Entitlement and attracting curses
  • Stretching ourselves and achieving balance
  • Realizing that we are in the middle of the process when things appear sour
  • Without working hard, our spiritual work is not complete
  • Entitlement as an indication of lost consciousness

Lesson Description

In a world eager to induce feeling of entitlement within us, this portion is a reality check. All our blessings are built on maximum effort, both spiritually and physically. Eitan assures us that our investment of both enables us to find Light beyond our highest expectations.
