“You Shall Not Cross This Jordan”

laitman_740.02Midrash Rabbah, Chapter “Vayelech”: The Celestial Voice revealed to Moses the day of his death, “You have only one day to live.” Hearing this, Moses went from the camp of Levites (where his tent stood) to the camp of Israelites to say goodbye to the Jews and calm them, because they were alarmed by his imminent demise.

Torah, Deuteronomy 31:01 – 31:02: And Moses went, and he spoke the following words to all Israel. He said to them, “Today I am one hundred and twenty years old. I can no longer go or come, and the Lord said to me, “You shall not cross this Jordan.”

In the spiritual world, there are 125 degrees of its attainment. Moses passed 120 of them. Therefore, it is said that he lived 120 years.

Moses is an example of the highest degree that a soul can attain until its final correction. After all, there are five more degrees left that will be corrected only after absolutely all the souls existing in our world are pulled to the degree of Moses. Then the very last degree will be completed—the last five parts.

It is written: “You have only one day to live.” This ends the personal correction of Moses; he cannot advance further. After this, there will be the correction of absolutely all of Israel and then of the entire world aspiring to the Creator. This will happen at the end of days.

Question: Moses says: “The Lord said to me, ‘You shall not cross this Jordan.’” Is there still some kind of bitterness in him?

Answer: Indeed, how can this be?! The rest can cross the Jordan and Moses cannot? He is above all others! And he was not honored with entering the land of Israel, and women, old people, and children were honored! Moses is the highest quality of the common organism called “the people.” Therefore, he must stay.

The rest must enter the land of Israel and work on themselves: to build the First Temple, go into exile, build the Second Temple, and go into exile again. They must spread their desires like sparks among all the nations, meaning the huge common desire that is made up of all the peoples. Therefore, they enter there.

Moses remains just beyond the Jordan because his qualities cannot be broken. They are waiting for the moment when all the nations of the world will gather and reach the level of 120th degree, and then, together with Moses, they will reach the 125th degree, which is the world of Infinity.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 4/23/17, Part 1

laitman_560Question: If the soul is a desire, then what is a broken desire? Is it a desire that you do not want?

Answer: An egoistic desire to receive pleasure only for one’s own sake without considering anything else in the world is called a broken desire.

Question: How can a soul have a name? Who gives a name to a soul? Is it the Creator?

Answer: A soul itself earns its name according to the degree to which it ascends. The level of similarity to the Creator determines the name of the soul.

Question: Is the soul one for all?

Answer: In general, we attain a state where we see that this is exactly so.

Question: Is there a meaning of life for one single person as an individual or is there a common meaning for all the people on the planet?

Answer: A person alone will not be able to find the meaning of life because we all come from one single soul of Adam. Therefore, only the attainment of the common soul gives us a feeling of the meaning of life.

Question: Is the antagonism between the parts of a single soul a trick of the Creator?

Answer: Yes. This is necessary for us in order to unite between ourselves despite our egoism and to reach the force of desire that is 613 times greater than the one we had in our initial state.

Why Did The Creator Create Such A World?

laitman_760.1Question: Why did the Creator create a world in which the law of equivalence of form exists? Couldn’t He create a world with other characteristics and laws?

Answer: No, He could not because according to the law of equivalence of form, He wants a person to become similar and equal to Him. It is up to us to attain this state during the 6,000 years of our existence. We have about 220 years left.

Thirteen Corrections of Dikna

laitman_256Question: What are the “thirteen corrections of Dikna”?

Answer: This is the Light that descends from the head of the soul into its body through thirteen channels. Anyone below who wants to receive this Light must make these corrections in order to connect to these channels as if to pipes that pour on him the upper Light of correction and fulfillment.

The streams pour down along both sides of the head of the soul to the body. That’s why religious Jews leave peyos (sidelocks) that they curl and maintain in a particular way. The Light descends from the upper part, which we do not attain. We attain only that which descends from it, and therefore, these two streams are called Peyos (peot or edge).

Further, the Light pours onto the chin along the sideburns and mustache. Under the nose, there is a particular point that is relatively free of hair. The beard is divided into upper and lower parts. The upper part goes to the chest, and the lower part to the navel. All of this is very clearly described in the original sources.

Naturally, our body is created in complete accordance with the flows of the streams of upper rays. But, we do not talk about the physical body in describing the upper Partzuf. I only mention this so that the students can remember a little material or somehow orient themselves.

If I speak about a correction such as the mustache or parts of the beard, I do not mean a part of a person’s face, but a quality. In other words, it is a particular spiritual force with a particular quality that is interacting with the upper Light. The Light is absolute, infinite, and amorphous. And this force separates from this infinite simple Light its specific content.

Question: Since we are talking about secretions, what are tears?

Answer: Tears are an overflow of Light that cannot be dressed in the Light of mercy (the Light of Hassadim). Therefore, it seems to be pouring over the edge.
