THE END OF SPACE
Last year I gave two lectures during Shabbat. Remarkably, by “coincidence,” exactly one year later, after having given the first lecture, I was asked to do a second one. This second lecture just happened to fall on the very next Torah portion from the lecture I gave the year prior.
Even more amazing to me, was that these two portions have zero space between them in the parchment of the Torah Scroll.
Every Torah portion always has a space in the parchment, like a chapter break, leading to the next week’s Torah reading.
But not the Portions known as Vayigash and Vayechi. It’s like one long Torah reading.
What I found even more fascinating is that this idea of zero space and removing space from our lives, is one of the most profound teachings the Rav revealed before leaving this physical reality.
So here we are, another year later (two years from the first lecture I did) and these two consecutive portions are back again.
Below are the two lectures I shared on the Rav’s teachings for these two Torah portions which begin this Saturday, December 7, 2013.
The lesson for me was, though the two lectures took place 12 months apart, there really is no space in true reality. Space is an illusion of our own senses as we will discover in the lectures.
The power to remove space is given to us through these two Torah readings.
What that means and how it can transform our lives and this world is explained in the two lectures.
