“If A Man Has A Wayward And Rebellious Son ”

Laitman_022The Torah, Deuteronomy 21:18 – 21:21: If a man has a wayward and rebellious son, who does not obey his father or his mother, and they chasten him, and [he still] does not listen to them, his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city, and to the gate of his place.

And they shall say to the elders of his city, “This son of ours is wayward and rebellious; he does not obey us; [he is] a glutton and a guzzler.”

And all the men of his city shall pelt him to death with stones, and he shall die. So shall you clear out the evil from among you, and all Israel will listen and fear.

This excerpt is about a person’s frenzied desire with the help of which he wants to attain the Creator. It is as violent and rebellious as a horse that stomps, balks, and throws off the rider.

If a father and a mother, which are the male and the female parts, give birth to a son that does not obey them and he is obliged to join them and to receive the upper Light through them to continue the path and give birth himself—then they have to bring him to the elders, to those who are above them, to the next step.

Suppose the father and the mother are Aba ve Ima, Hochma, and Bina, and ZON, which is under them. Then they have to raise the desire generated by them even higher—to where are four kinds of death: stoning, strangulation, burning, and hanging. In such a way, this desire is killed, which means that it descends to the level of the inanimate, and then its development begins again.

The stone is Lev HaEven, the stony heart. Therefore, one desire is killed by another great desire, which does not give it the opportunity to acquire the slightest bit of life.
