EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT LIFE!
For JANUARY 14th, 2014
Here it is. Bite-size bits of wisdom as profound and deep as they are simple, short and sweet. This is the wisdom of the ages, the oldest wisdom on earth, the wisdom that not only makes one more knowledgeable, but also elevates the soul and our consciousness, which makes us more pure, clear, enlightened and deeply contented.
Here we go:
1. We are all born religious. We’re religious about religion, science & atheism. Religious means intolerance. We must banish religiosity by banishing our own intolerance, eradicating our narrow-mindedness and letting go of our long-held opinions—about everything! Then miracles will unfold!
2. Our good traits will never change the world or our own lives. Never! Finding our worst traits & changing them, by admitting them, even a little, is how we elevate our world. Stop defending yourself — especially when you’re convinced you’re right! Stop trying to win the point, win the moment and win the argument. That is a sucker’s bet! Why? It provides temporary gratification coupled with long-term nasty chaos. If you surrender, miracles will unfold!
3. The biggest illusion? The word “mine.” Nothing is “mine”! Nothing is ours! All thoughts & ideas come from either the Light or the Dark/ego. We channel one or the other. If we doubt this, if we deny this, we are channeling the dark side. When we realize that our only free will is to choose the will of the soul over the will of our ego, miracles will unfold!
4. This week’s Torah portion features the revelation on Mount Sinai and the two Tablets of Moses! Kabbalist Rav Berg said there is a profound reason why this most important reading of the entire year, featuring the biggest event in human history, is called Jethro!
Jethro was not an Israelite.
Jethro was a gentile!
A gentile has the honor, distinction and merit to have the most important Torah reading named after him.
What’s the lesson?
It is through the sharing of the Light of Sinai, which is the Hidden Light called Zohar, with all the gentile nations that will bring about our Final Redemption and restore the immortality that was lost back on Sinai.
I miss the Rav’s lectures.
When we start living the teachings of the Rav’s lectures, miracles will unfold!
