Abraham’s Rise Above Egoism

608.01“And they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees.” It should have written, “With Terah.” However, Terah, Lot, Abraham, and Sarah went out because they wanted primarily to come out from among the wicked. After Terah saw that Abraham his son saved him from the furnace, he returned to doing Abraham’s will, and because of it, Terah and Lot went out with them. (Lech Lecha [Go Forth] Item 17, The Book of Zohar)

Take close relatives with you means that a person takes all his properties that are closest to him, from which he grew up and found the spiritual path with him.

Therefore, Abraham’s father, Terah, and his wife Sarah (egoism in him) accompany him in his spiritual ascent. He gradually absorbs them into himself and thus rises.

All these properties exist within us, and we must understand how to work with them.
The Torah (Bible) tells about the inner transformation of man, how he rises from his animal level to the level of perfection, eternity, the Creator.
From KabTV’s “The Power of The Book of Zohar” #17
