Knowing what we need to change does not guarantee actual change. Many times we have knowledge, but true change requires spiritual practice. Michael turns to the story of Jacob the Patriarch, Joseph and his brothers travelling into Egypt to show us the importance of constant practice and how understanding that in any given moment, we are exactly where we need to be empowers us to retain real change.
One of the major spiritual connections kabbalists make on the Sabbath is the reading of a weekly Bible portion. These consciousness lectures present lessons on each week's portion to elevate our consciousness and create awareness of the spiritual energy and gifts that are available through the reading of a Torah Scroll. With greater awareness and an awakened consciousness, we can connect to the Light revealed each week and use it as support in our ongoing spiritual work.
