Lesson Highlights

  • The Torah and Haftorah: Higher and Lower Lights
  • King Saul and King David
  • Appreciation allows us to receive benefit
  • No such thing as punishment, only cause and effect
  • Bread crumbs and sustenance
  • Spiritual work prepares the blessings, appreciation manifests them
  • Abraham’s closest student, Eliezer
  • Lezulato: the purpose of why we are in this world
  • Setting our desires aside to fill another’s first
  • Lavan’s blessing elevated Eliezer to complete purification
  • The end goal of all the spiritual work that we do

Lesson Description

In this lesson Michael reveals that all the spiritual work we do prepares our blessings but the only way to draw, receive or manifest these blessings in our lives is to awaken appreciation. Michael also condenses all of the teachings and all life’s purpose into one word: Lezulato, for the other.

About This Course

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.
