The Staff In The Hand Of Moses

935The connection in the group is the hand of Moses holding the staff. If we want to move forward, then with our connection we create the image of Moses walking ahead of us. Moses is able to guide us because although he was born from a Jewish father and mother (Yehudi), striving for unity (Yehud), searching for the Creator, he grew up in the house of Pharaoh.

Although his point belongs to Bina, he was brought up in Malchut by the king of Egypt. Therefore, Moses has both of these qualities and when he grew up, he was able to lead those who wanted to leave Egypt and lead them out.

Everyone in the group is obliged to awaken the qualities of Moses, which are at the head of all other human qualities, and lead him to connection in the ten. With this connection we build a common image of Moses for all of us, pulling (Moshe) us out from here to the goal of creation, to the end of correction, to adhesion with the Creator. Otherwise, we will not be able to get out of our nature, out of Egypt.

In the staff, two forms of use must be distinguished. When the staff is thrown to the ground, it turns into a snake, and when it is picked up, it becomes a staff leading us to success. Everything depends on the person; there is no holiness in the staff itself. It simply symbolizes the attitude of a person to life, dedication to the group, and to the goal.

And therefore, if we raise the importance of the group and the goal, all the means that lead us to merge with the Creator above ourselves, our own animal egoism, turn into a staff. The staff itself does not exist. We must mold it inside us so that the form of our approach to the connection between us and the purpose of life will be called the staff.
From the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 11/16/21, Baal HaSulam, Shamati 59, “Concerning the Staff and the Serpent”
