Lesson Highlights

  • Building of the mishkan
  • The root of all falling and failure is the inability to wait
  • Being strong and having certainty among all doubts and fears
  • Having absolute certainty is necessary to maintain the Light of the Creator
  • The concept of chalal or empty space
  • Doubt, fear, and logic push us to receive instant gratification
  • Patience draws blessings filled with Light
  • The more uncomfortable it is, the more Light it reveals
  • In order for blessings to last, they have to be invested with pain

Lesson Description

In preparation for the Torah reading of the portion Vayakel-Pekudei, Michael shares powerful teachings that help us attract and maintain true and lasting blessings. On this Shabbat, we receive the assistance to cleanse the forces that push us to be impatience and fearful, and become conduits of Light through certainty and peace, even when everything around is full of doubts.  

About This Course

The goal of our spiritual work can be summed up in the teaching, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” This high level of unity doesn’t come naturally. Through this week’s energy, we’re supported to re-invest in our personal spiritual work and through it, purify our consciousness to inch closer to this goal. By setting aside time each week for reflection, we can access the wisdom within our heart that’s connected to the Light.
