Lesson Highlights

  • Receiving that which happens to us with simplicity
  • Not engaging with the snake: not questioning events that are beyond our control
  • Connecting to the Upper world of Atzilut and witnessing the emanation of the Light
  • Connecting to the two highest levels of our soul that are beyond thought: chayah and yechidah
  • The Or Haganuz, Concealed Light, is being held for those who are fighting for simplicity of thought
  • Removing additional, unnecessary weight of thought from our hearts and the hearts of our children
  • The most important work of Elul, Virgo, is to go back to a state of tamim, simplicity
  • Using the phrase, Tamim Tihyeh Im Hashem Eloheicha, "be simple and then you are with the Light of the Creator"
  • Extracting the Light from everything we experience

Lesson Description

Michael teaches how living with simplicity of thought when something beyond our control occurs, can connect us with the highest levels of our soul and bring us limitless joy and blessings. 

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.
