The Torah, Numbers 12:09 – 12:15: The wrath of the Lord flared against them and He left. The cloud departed from above the Tent, and behold, Miriam was afflicted with tzara’ath, [as white] as snow. Then Aaron turned to Miriam and behold, she was afflicted with tzara’ath.
Aaron said to Moses, “Please, master, do not put sin upon us for acting foolishly and for sinning. Let her not be like the dead, which comes out of his mother’s womb with half his flesh consumed!”
Moses cried out to the Lord, saying, “I beseech you, God, please heal her.” The Lord replied to Moses, “If her father were to spit in her face, would she not be humiliated for seven days? She shall be confined for seven days outside the camp, and afterwards she may enter. So Miriam was confined outside the camp for seven days, and the people did not travel until Miriam had entered.
This is a very serious correction. First the revelation of egoism occurs, then its correction, which is a period of suffering, and then movement forward.
Suffering is not punishment. In the Torah, punishment is correction.
Remark: But leprosy is a terrible correction.
My Comment: Naturally. Lesions appear on a person’s skin because the skin symbolizes the most external egoistic stage. It is affected the most.
The skin is the largest organ of the body. Just like the liver, kidneys, and so on, the skin is an organ. It breathes, works, and processes everything. The exchange of gas with atmosphere and exchange of heat happens through it, and it feels everything.
We do not understand what it is. In our time, it is fashionable to get all sorts of tattoos on the skin, but they disrupt the entire work of the body.
Question: What does leprosy on the skin mean?
Answer: Leprosy on the skin is the revelation of the very last stage of egoism. In other words, this is a cleansing because all of it was inside and now it is manifesting from the outside. The only way to cure it is by the Light of the Creator.
