Passover - Selected Excerpts from the Sources. (Moses turns to the people. #161)

Passover - Main page for all chapters

1. Rav’s Introduction: Yes, so we keep going.

Reading 161 (01:10) “. . . It is written “and Moses spoke thus to the Children of Israel . . .“

2. R. (02:50) That means that man wants to know and to fulfill the laws of connection so that in them the Creator can be revealed, on one hand  and on the other hand he does not feel any importance in doing it. There is a beginning for it just in order to recognise that the true importance does not exist in him that he is not really drawn, he doesn’t run towards it, his not devoted to the force of bestowal, that he wants to be above his force of reception, and that’s something someone discovers and right now there is nothing to do with it. He also understands that this pleasure of being in bestowal towards everybody it has to be huge, a tendency to connect with everyone, to bestow to everyone, it has to be an innner pleasure and he does not have that but sometimes he’ll think that some kind of awakening comes, either from above from the Creator or from the environment, but it comes and goes it just disappears instantly.

That is why he does not exactly know what to do. That is the feeling of the exile. That he feels what is outside of Egypt outside of the ego outside of the egoistic desire and for now he is still under the control of his ego. That he is constantly returns to the thoughts and desires and actions of his own and that is the way he exists right now. Those feelings is what one discovers throughout a long period of time even though one has some kind of a feeling of freedom, what it means to be free of egoistic will to receive, and to live in a different quality of reality, of nature, the Creator, that in such a way we must connect to one another, but it only appears sometimes and right away it disappears.

So all these states that the person goes through they only come so a person can feel the connection between all those states, that he’s under his own egoistic forces or under the upper forces of the Creator which are altruistic, bestowal, love, connection, closeness, and this way he feels, he describes these things but it is one against the other. It is already a new state that depends on the attitude on the relation between those two states. The more he has a feeling in the will receive of himself or the more he has a feeling in the will to bestow from himself outward through the friends towards the Creator and in this way he can stabilize himself and by that build thoughts, and emotions, and actions, that will hold him more in bestowal through the friends to the Creator that he tries to build, in connecting the group, the quality of the Creator, mutual connection, mutual love, mutual bestowal, and he himself awakens it. This is the period of time as much as one can describe, build the image of the Creator in his connection with the friends.

That is why the work is so meticulous. Rather he can hear it or not the voice of Moses that pulls him from in order to receive to be in himself towards in order to bestow, to be in everyone, and this way the person tries to invest more and more forces in the connection with the friends. From there he can build a connection with the Creator. Actually the path is not difficult. It is difficult in practice because we cannot control the forces of connection or the forces of separation. The Creator holds those two forces, the forces of separation and forces of connection, and changes them in each and every person according to the others, according to the advancement of mutual goal, that we’ll all be as one man with one heart, and in this way we need to work. Meaning that constantly in our inner scrutiny to feel where our heart is directed, where our thoughts are, and in that way we become owners of the work the action, more and more. That's it. Let's read it again.

Reading 161 (10:39)

3. R. (10:59) This means that even if tendencies awaken in the person towards connection towards coming closer to the friends, towards building a common desire with them and you can direct it towards the Creator and locateHhim and feel the connection with Him andaccept this connection; but it is not so easy to connect all those tendencies together from each and every friend connect them together as one common tendency and….

Reading on

4. R. (13:00) Meaning in a person the importance of the upper force is not reveal, this is why the person cannot organize it in a way that all the forces, all the desires, all the thought and all his hopes will be directed only to the Creator because it is not revealed, it is not fill his desires and thoughts. This is why it turns out that he is just all scattered, once to this, once to that, all kinds of tendencies, once he feels that his personal force is working and holding him in some state in the world, once he feels that he is still in an environment and this atmosphere is holding him and that atmosphere of the environment works on him and determines his state and in this way he is between the two. So how can he truly determine correctly in a stable manner, he has to discover that the Creator is controlling, that the force of the Creator is above all the other forces in him and above all thoughts and tendencies. That the Creator is one source, the One, Unique and Unified and He is the only one determining what is happening to the person, what will happen to the person and these are things that we have to organize in our mind and heart in a way that the demand, that we are concerned, that we are obligated to determine this.

Meaning that whatever will be, when we have the forces of the Creator working on us in the correct way towards the goal, and the forces of the Creator also working on us on as in an opposite direction, this is called ‘creates light and darkness, the day and night’, and then we need to organize these forces in such a way that everything is coming from the Creator in order for us to build an attitude to Him, a direct, straight attitude towards Him. That day and night, the good things and the less pleasant things, whether it is confusing or clear, everything happens to us and goes through us and we just organize them all in one line, in one direction, that day and night, the darkness will shine as day, we constantly advance towards connection between us because there in that connection is where we reach the Creator.

5. S. (16:55) I am a will to receive so how can I work without reward and convince myself to bestow to my friend unconditionally?

R. A person is a will to receive but now when he becomes, when he gets an awaken to come out of Egypt so also the force of bestowal awakens in him, a small amount, and even if we do not recognie that it is happening to us yet, but it does not let us an ability to be close to the friends and it give us an opportunity to accept from the friends, to acquire from the friends their forces of bestowal. The friends are like me, they do not have any forces of bestowal but when I turn to them and want to receive forces of bestowal from them so through them I get the forces of bestowal from the Creator because I annul towards the friends, I bow towards them and as a response I get from the Creator forces to bestow. And this way we can again and again through our subjugation to the group, we can get more and more forces of bestowal from above and in this way we can advance.

6. S. (19:03) Why is ‘Shechina is in the dust’ and is this state necessary, do we need it or not? that the

R. Why do we needs to go through a period that is called ‘Divinity in the dust’, it is in order for us reach a feeling of our truth states, of the forces that exist in nature. All of our attitude towards life, towards the feeling of life, all in all it come to us from locating the good and bad, bad and good, this is why when the start discovering spirituality we do not know what it is and we need to connect it to the good or bad feelings that we have. And in this way we build the right attitude towards the spiritual reality and the Creator and we will be able to locate the purpose of our development.

S. How can I prepare myself for that estate and is this state natural that I simply need to flow with?

R. That is right, we are exist really deeply in our desire to receive and we see all of reality through it, the whole world, we build our inner world. And everything that we get from the outside, right away we feel it in that inner world and right away we establish our desires and our revelations in this world towards that depiction of the world that already exists in us. And in this way we grow as much as we connect all those impressions to the depiction of our world but the whole thing is how we combine those forms that we are receiving, what good is or what bad is, and how we add them to the depiction of the world, that we already start understanding and feeling that our reality is built from two forces, and that the the relative form between them, between those two forces, is what determines the reality that we feel. This is why as much as we add the inspiration of what is revealed before, as as much as we connect that inspiration toward the depiction of our world and this way we build our current reality for each and everybody.

It also happens to us in our life so there is nothing really new, the only problem is, the new issue is that we have to monitor our inspiration because we want to determine the inspiration through the will to bestow and not through the will to receive, this is why we have to criticize it. And when we criticize our perception of the world, how we connect those Inspirations into one picture, in that way we have to try to feel and understand where the place of each inspiration should be: are we accepting it through the will to receive or through the will to bestow. We more and more enter our inner system each and every one and I want there to give place to each and every phenomena, and in this way we gather all of these phenomena into a . . . through them the uppher world can be revealed.

7. S. (25:27) Can we say that Moses is our right hand and the Pharaoh is the left-hand and somehow we have to find the middle line, middle way, because he need them both; and if it is so ,what is this middle line that we have to find?

R. It could be that in some states we can say that but for what, why should we start limiting ourselves to begin with? Let's learn what the Kabbalists tell us, we are going according to these excerpts so let's not jump ahead of them as if we are building reality, reality is already built so let's not start fantasing things in it and organiing thing according to our minds.

8. S. (26:42) The pleasure of bestowing to the friends because of the importance of the King, does that something to do with engaging in the Torah?

R. Of course because it all depends on the importance of the King, as much as you raise His importance to that extent you feel pleasure for bestowing to Him.

S. How is the importance of the King related to the engagement in the Torah?

R. Because to the extent of the importance of the King, you relate to everything that’s happening as the actions of the King, that’s way you locate the general picture, that He is in the centre of everything.

S. How does that relate to the reforming light?

R. Of course it happens with the reforming light, that the person everytime advances and by that sees a truer depiction of these forces that established the picture of the word for him.

S. That’s also as far as reception or giving?

R. In all ways, it all depends on the importance of the King compared to all kinds of events and other discernments.

9. S. (28:20) When we go out of the ego to connection, desires that you cannot even approach are discovered, even urges that you couldn’t even group-wise, the person also writes about Kedusha and the connection between us, so how to approach such desires, such urges?

R. Holiness, sanctity, it is the quality of the Creator that is revealed in all kinds of actions and states that we go through and we need to receive it as something that aims us for sure and directly to the final Correction. It gives us a sure direction toward the purpose of creation, more than that I do not want to add, the rest is what you build around this?

10. S. (30:14) Does it depend on me the extent to which I can love or is it not in my hands?

R. Eventually, it depends on your connection with the group and the Creator, though that you can extract forces and understandings, how to use what you have in you.

11. S. (31:14) I heard you say that “the Creator holds two forces, the plus and minus, and He changes them without our control. Through our inner scrutiny we can determine where we are and we become owners of it”, can you elaborate on that, can you make it a bit more clear?

R. Yes, as much as the check these states, we locate the states, we calculate them, we exchange them, we can more and more come closer to the qualities of the Creator, to bestow and then according to that we can understand Him more and determine in a better way, the correct way, according to the will to bestow, this is what happens.

12. S. (32:40) I heard you say that the work has to be meticulous, whether he hears or doesn’t hear the voice of Moses?

R. Who?

S. Whether a person can hear or not hear the voice of Moses.

R. It is in him and if the person wants to hear it then he can hear it.

S. What is ‘the most voice of Moses’?

R. It’s the voice that pulls him to the point that brings him closer to the Creator.

S. What does the ability to hear the voice of Moses depend on, how to hear this voice?

R. What does it depend on, as much as the person is in an inner excitement to set him in connection to the friends. He wants to feel the internality of the friends and add them to himself and this is the person's internal advancement, that is how it happens. As much as I want to gather in all my friends their behaviour and spiritual behaviour, their spiritual development, I am like the Malchut and they are like the first nine Sephirot and this way I can collect from them all of these impressions and add them into me, according to that, I can grow. All and all I am just a result of as much as I get impressions from them, if I cannot get impressions from them, I don’t grow and I do not have any inner form, I don’t build my soul. The soul of each and every one is a result of as much as I collect from all the friends their oinner qualities.

S. To the extent that I am impressed by the friends, I absorb their impressions and I'm excited, how does it connect to the voice of Moses?

R. Through them I feel how the Creator is turning to me, this is how we learn about the order of the ten Sefirot: whatever comes to Malchut is the light that goes through the first nine Sefirot and in this way Malchut awaken, gets inspired and behaves in such a way.

13. S. (35:46) What does it mean ‘to hear’, what do we hear exactly?

R. ‘To hear’ means to accept it in the force of bestowal according to the hearing, the force of Bina, that as much I awaken as much as I uplift to annul towards the friends that is how I can hear what they say, not myself but them?

S. How to hear what the desire doesn’t wants to hear?

R. Try to come out of yourself, completely rid yourself from the will to receive, from its thoughts, drom its desires, except for the goal. And try to receive from the friends the qualities and a path to receive that goal. Meaning I annul towards the friends, I am willing to be in them, I annul like a baby to the mother, let's say, and in such a way I hope I’ll reach the Creator, reveal the Creator, adhering to the Creator.

S. But what do I hear through the friends?

R. Through the friends, to the extent I annul towards them, I can hear the upper, for the upper light that is in them, if I managed to annul my ego and I incorporate in them, I can hear what the Creator is passing through them to me.

S. And what is your fuel for annulment?

R. That I wants to attain the desire of the Creator, the message, His message.

S. But in practice, what is this annulment, what is its expression because the desire grows so what is nullified exactly?

R. The will to receive is nullified, it’s like, Moses, let's say, is the quality of Bina that is entirely to bestow so this is why he is the faithful shepherd and he is reaching a state where he is connected to the Creator, and this is how he is advances, the person, if he is searches for that quality of the Creator, the quality of Moses.

S. So the fact that we are looking for the same quality of the Creator creates the annulment?

R. Yes. it obligates the person to reach the quality of Moses that obligates him to reach the quality of the Creator, that is how he is follows Moses.

S. How do you identify Moses?

R. The quality of Bina, the quality of bestowal, a quality that is entirely adhered to the Creator and I, myself, I can’t adhere to the Creator, only through accepting this special quality which is Moses or the group or….

S. Yes, but what is the expression of this quality of Moses between us, if I want now to identify the quality of Moses how to identify it?

R. We all connect together and keep going after the quality of bestowal between us with our eyes shut, just follow it.

14. S. (40:48) You said that this quality of Moses is in the person and if he wants to hear it he can, how to scrutinize this desire?

R. This is according to the excerpts that we’re learning in each verse, in every sentence, we locate a new desire, a new attitude of the Creator towards us, and this is how we understand that this comes to us through Moses. What we feel, what we hear are incorporated in some qualities, some action or something, it is always through Moses, it’s a certain constant transition between the Creator and us.

S. We see that there are so many friends here, the whole world Kli is wrapping us, everyone wants it, we want it, so what else is lacking in this desire to truly hear it and come out?

R. What is important in this desire and what is missing are two forces, tendencies we can say, qualities, in this desire we need to understand that the quality of bestowal must be the main quality, the initial one and the one that determines everything and this quality needs to operate in my connection with the group and then with the Creator. That's altogether what we have to locate.

S. What do you recommend in these days that we can add so hese two qualities will not be missing?

R. I would read these excerpts many times, those that we’re learning, what we have learned before, also, somewhat and this is how we will advance, this is how we’ll advance, we have no other way.

15. S. (43:59) How to come to the importance of the friends when we ourselves are in exile, to be able to annul andhear the friends?

R. But we are praying, we are asking if I have a certain spiritual problem I need to understand that this problem exists only because I do not have a connection with my environment, with my ten. And in the ten I am certain that I would find a solution for every state I have, this is why in every state, if it is filled with questions or actually completely without questions, it does not matter how, I need to ask to discover my ten, my connection to the friends, connection, love, my attitude towards them. And then for sure I will find the solution and the right attitude towards them which will answer all my questions, in that system I can find my next step to the Creator.

S. To really find, let’s say, the importance, to have a feeling of the importance of the friends because we are talking about the importance of the Creator, and when we have this importance than we can annul, then we can hear the friends. But if we are in exile I still do not understand how to come to the real importance of the friends, so that means I am blocked to be able to really listen to the friends, to really, truly annul to the friends because they are not important enough?

R. We have to understand that darkness, that misunderstanding, the fact that we do not understand or feel or sense what is happening to us, this is the result of we can take advantage of that darkness in order to discover more deficiency ,more inclination to the revelation of the Creator; otherwise we will be missing vessels, this is why the darkness Is not darkness, it is a certain form of help in how I need to discover my desire towards the Creator and not that this darkness is some disturbance, it is not a disturbance, rather it is help.

16. S. (47:27) I’m discovering that I filter just about every bestowal from the friends, from the environment and I received only what my inner,l natural scrutiny does, what it is willing to accept a very small percentage of the influence around me. The rest of the time I am basically in a war rejecting everything outside, first of all is this mechanism correct, and what does it serves me in being so?

R. The mechanism could be correct, I am not certain about the use it because all in all you are in scrutinzing the forces of ‘for and against’, of what is the goal and how correct it is, to what extent this system, your system, is calibrated correctly, that is the question.

S. In order to scrutinize this force of bestowal that the friends are giving me called Moses, Ihave to do something with this bestowal that they're giving me, that I have to enable all the bestowal to penetrate me, or somehow use this mechanism or does it depend on some additional desires in me so I can absorb or receive this desire from the society?

R. That is exactly, because later we learn about the reflected light and direct light, how there is restriction and screen and rejection. This is why we do not just need to receive everything that comes to us but we have to check relative to the goal, relative to the friends, relative to the group, that if we have the possibility, we need to sort these influences from above correctly.

S. So the influence of the friends is the influence from above, I think we have to sort them out so what helps me sort them out correctly, how do I know what the force of Moses is that I have to relate to that bestowal from them?

R. Annulment towards them, now annulment is also an order of actions that I need to perform in order, well, to the extent I am included in the desire to receive and the desire to bestow, to the extent  that I arrange them to be my correct leaders ahead of me, this is something we have to feel and build.

17. S. (51:02) There is something that exist like karma between friends or one against the other that what I sow that is also what I reap, does my attitude comes back to me?

R. Yes.

18. S. (51:34) Why was Moses afraid of the Pharaoh?

R. Because Moses does not have the strength or the forces to deal with the Pharaoh, he does not, Pharaoh is small and weak, he doesn’t have such forces, he has the direction only. This is direction without forces that can push him forward and the forces that drive him forward, it needs to come from the Creator. Hence Moses is the ‘loyal Shepherd’, ‘the faithful Shepherd’ meaning that he is guiding you in the right direction but forces to advance in the right direction you need to receive from the group and the Creator, through the group.

S. Not clear, why doesn't Moses have forces?

R. This is what the faithful Shepherd is called, it is a quality and he has no such forces.

S. The quality of Bina?

R. Yes, the quality of Bina, the quality of bestowal, the quality of connection, but he does not have the such forces; therefore it can be a means between the Creator and the people.

S. So, how to say it in Hebrew, the force of faith is a bit of that, small, yes? But if the force of faith is the will to receive then bestowing in order to receive is a bigger force?

R. Yes.

19. S. (53:55) What is the lack of light of Moses inside me, the lack of the light of Moses inside me, what is that?

R. The lack of light inside of us is the understanding and guidance in the right direction, that’s it, and how is this expressed? We don’t go like in our world on the way, on the trail, we need to acquire each time new qualities and this is how we advance.

S. Yesterday in the noon lesson, you said that we need to read the articles and feel the friends, and the thought and desire has to be with the Rav, is the Rav the light of Moses inside me?

R. I am definitely not Moses, I nevertheless I am passing on some force from a higher degree to you.

20. S. (55:46) I wanted to ask if you could tell us about the first time that you have felted how you are coming out of Egypt, how did it feel?

R. No, that is exactly what we are reading now and from there we are coming to the exit.

21. S. (56:15) What is the difference between hearing the friends or feeling the internality of the friends and how to feel the internality of the friends more and more?

R. It is the same thing to hear and to feel the internality because we are not hearing with our ears but we are hearing with the quality of bestowal. ‘To hear in His words, His speech means that I am in order to bestow to the extent I am able to be in the quality of bestowal, in the quality of Bina, and then accordingly I can belong to the upper one and to feel Him and this is how I advance with Him.

22. S. (57:20) I heard you say that my attitude to the friends comes back to me, does my attitude to the world also coming back to me, or is it only with the friends?

R. Of course that comes back as well, we can also see this in this world not only in spirituality.

23. S. (58:06) I am trying to connect to the qualities of the friends, in what way should the quality of Moses appear there?

R. I would say that the quality of Moses is as a general light, as a message, this is a line that is operating within which we have devotion and messages and delivering messages of the friends. Moses is that one who is giving us, as we are talking about, he's giving us a line like on the media, over in the TV, it is giving us a certain stream or line and the friends are already starting to operate in it, whoever can enter the stream, that line .

24. S. (59:42) There's a desire to express love towards the friend but it gets distorted in corporeal actions, what to add so it will not happen?

R. You need to connect yourself with that group to pass on this feeling and to the Creator.

25. S. (01:00:51) What I heard is that the quality of Moses is an awakening from above and it is something that disappears, and then we need to make efforts from below and take forces from the Creator. So does the force of Moses get stronger in Passover or it has nothing to do with this time and it always exists?

R. It is specifically Moses that is revealed in the states called Passover in which we begin to emerge from out of our egos towards in order to bestow and the force of Moses, then, the force of Moses actually leads us forward to the extent in which we notify before the environment and before the Creator, we discover more of the force of Moses which pulls us towards the goal.

26. S. (01:02:17) When I start getting feelings or desires or thoughts through the friends, through the group, what does my attitude add towards those friends?

R. Everything, you are one of the ten Sephirot which the Kli is made of and it cannot be without just one Sefira, it can not be a vwhole Kli in that way. That is why to the extent in which you are connected with them and want to advance with them to support them, and it doesn't matter here how correct or incorrect it is. This is like little children, big children, that you are advancing them and they are advancing.

S. In what way do I help them advance, it is like a feeling that I can't understand?

R. In your participation, as you participate and the more the participation is real, aimed, strong accordingly, it is like in this world, the same details, the same condition.

S. In my attitude, I am actually building that feeling in them?

R. Correct, each gives his attitude, all those relations, all those attitudes connect between them and are drawn to the Creator at which point we get a response.

27. S. (01:04:24) In what exactly do I build the image of the Creator in the ten, in the connection, how can I build that image?

R. According to what you discover in the ten together with them and with them together, you intend to come to a connection with the Creator, with the upper force, so through that you depict the Creator from your state with the others. That's why it is written “you made Me” and there's no Creator without the created being, and we constantly establish, stabilize His image before us, it is not that He exists on His own. Rather we in the connection between us each time stabilize before us from Ein Sof, a certain form that is suitable, that answers our desires as the Creator. That's why we really make the Creator and what will the truth be in the end, we will get there in an internal way if we come to such a vessel of ours, then we will discover it as an endless source.

28. S. (01:06:19) There is a state before the message is received and there is a state after the message has been received, could you help me understand what is the quality of the difference between the state prior and the state that follows?

R. Well, that is to the extent in which a person gets along with the message as much as he agrees or disagrees with it, to the extent in which he examines it with his desire to receive, his desire to bestow, from his standing with the friends, to the extent in which he receives support from them. The general scrutiny of a person with his environment, how in this environment I come to the upper world, where is that flying carpet, that engine that can raise us to a spiritual degree?

Reading excerpt #162. (01:08:11 - 01:12:46) twice ” When Moses came to the people of Israel..” twice.

29. R. (01:08:30) Meaning that in the ego of each and every one there is a certain appeal and address.

30. S. (01:12:53) When the quality of Moses appears we can't work for ourselves anymore, only for the Creator, meaning it is a dangerous quality that can also throw you out and not only pull you?

R. Just like you used to be a servant to the will to receive, you become a servant to the desire to bestow.

S. I just reveal the reality that exists, that the quality of Moses takes a person out of?

R. Yes.

S. To run from the quality of Moses so that you still follow it and reveal it?

R. Of course.

S. It sounds simple as if a person lives as a beast and then there is a jump and he’s like someone who can work in bestowal?

R. Different desires begin to control you.

S. No translation

R. You are simply moving from one state to another.

S. Why in the excerpt it says not to ask questions that you don't know yet?

R. Because you don’t know how to answer them yet but when the time comes you will start answering them, you’ll be able to capable of answering them, and that's how you will advance.

S. No translation

R. The Creator is arranging for you, both the answers and the questions, don’t worry about that, the main thing is as much as you can participate in all that is going on with you. We need to not forget that everything is done by the Creator and we just need to join those things those things that are happening to us.

31. S. (01:16:38) How to feel that the friend awakens me to spirituality?

R. We need first to be certain that the Creator prepares spirituality for us through the friends and He awakens the friends and bestows to us through the friends so I need to develop in myself sensitivity to the influence of the friends on me where through their influence upon me, there is also the influence of the Creator. How do I do that: first, I need to take into consideration that the Creator is always good and benevolent and He's in everything that the friends do toward me and that His forces are good and benevolent and He always draws me to the goal of in order to bestow. If we try to observe these things then we will certainly progress until we reveal in practice the Creator’s attitude towards us through the friends.

S. When we read the excerpt I was thinking about the story of Baal HaSulam with his grandchild, so the question is how can we have no pleasure, I thought that we can have pleasure from bestow, how can we advance if it’s forbidden?

R. It is forbidden to enjoy from what?

S. To receive pleasure, I read that?

R. If I give to the Host, to the extent in which I give to the Host, to that same extent I need to reveal please ure, I need to feel pleasure because I don't return to the Host the portion that He gave me to eat however I return to Him the pleasure from what He gave me in that portion.

S. Okay but what Moses says here?

R. Therefore I need to reveal the pleasure that I received.

S. So what can we not receive?

R. We can receive everything and the whole of creation is so that we will receive it in our vessels, in our vessels of reception, in the will to receive only with the additional intention in order to bestow, that I do it in order to bring contentment to the Host.

32. S. (01:20:27) With respect to the tent we see that the quality of Moses is slippery, it's hard to hold on to it even though you feel it, is there a possibility that the quality of Moses will be established in our ten or will this accompany us all along?

R. Search for it, always try to fish it out, to grasp it, to grab it until you will discover what form that you are in other than grasping it and grabbing onto it, also to hold it so that it will always dwell between us. The Creator is the connector between the Creator’s quality and the creation’s quality, it is Bina, which is between Keter and Malchut, think about that, organise that in yourselves.

33. S. (01:21:40) You said that we are supposed to bestow, on the other hand we are not supposed to receive, what can I give if I don't receive anything?

R. You cannot, if you reach that stage then you can already understand what it means to receive in order to bestow.

34. S. (01:22:50) Why are we always slaves, what does it mean that we are servants of the quality of bestowal?

R. We are constantly slaves to our will to receive even though we start resisting it and overcoming it, somewhat; and true overcoming means that way exit Egypt meaning that we are not under the control of Pharaoh’s power and we start acting in the force of bestowal.

Reader: The lady asked, “what does it mean to be a slave of the force of bestowal”?

R. To be a slave of the force of bestowal means that I want but in my intention and in my decision that I wish to integrate in the thoughts of the Creator, to nullify toward Him, and as much as I receive forces from Him, in such a way I can be a slave to bestowal.

35. S. (01:24:16) You said something very interesting today, we acquire altruism through the friends, it sounds like a miracle, we are all in the egoism and in our connection we become altruistic, how does this transformation happen through connection?

R. We, as if, pay, we are ready to give our will to receive in order to receive, the will to bestow,  how can we do that because the will to receive is our entire nature? It is possible if we act together and understand that we replace one with the other.

S. Meaning we first perform the action and then we understand that we have become altruistic?

R. Yes.

36. S. (01:26:15) The general vessel has a tremendous deficiency, can a prayer for the vessel connect us and we can pass it onto the ten?

R. Yes, but yes.

37. S. (01:27:05) If the Creator controls everything that happens in me, is my work only to organize the Arvut between us?

R. Yes.

S. And in my life I have to annul myself in order to guard Moses, to hear Moses?

R. You said it very nicely.

38. S. (01:28:01) I heard you saying that it is important for me to come out of myself in order to receive the qualities, to attain the goal from my friends, and so through them I will hear what the Creator conveys to me. How does this process of coming out of myself happen in what qualities of my friends can I receive this way?

R. Really it doesn't matter to me what quality I will receive if I annul towards the upper Force and according to its command I wish to be more and more connected to my friends, then I execute the action so that I will only have the force to execute it, and what I receive in return will be spiritual qualities that I acquire. Why did I come to the wisdom of Kabbalah in order to resemble the Creator, to come closer to Him, to feel Him, to research Him, to learn Him, to learn Him, so that's what I do, that is called “from Your actions I will know You”, from my flesh I will see you, you will see your God, that's how you progress.

S. This process of coming out of myself is really critical so how to attain it?

R. Through connection with friends, through connection with friends and only that.

39. S. (01:30:34) How to awaken the quality of Moses in the ten in the right way in order not to harm each other?

R. To connect positively, that's all, to give them an awakening to connection, that's the main thing.

Reading excerpt #163. (01:31:27 - 01:33:23) “Why when Moses came as the Creator's emissary..”

40. R. (01:36:41) What we now feel is written in excerpt one sixty-three.

Rav reads excerpt #163 after song (01:38:04 - 01:39:56) “Why when Moses came as the Creator's emissary..”

Reader reads excerpt #163 (01:40:22 - 01:42:17)

42. S. (01:42:33) What is the quality of the voice of Moses when he speaks to the people, does he speak like a father to frightened children, or does he speak like a general to his fighting men?

R. Moses is the Creator’s representative who can act in connection between the Creator and people, the created beings. There needs to be a force which connects between the will to receive and the will to bestow otherwise they would not understand each other, they would not feel each other, and they would not be able to connect and perform mutual work, therefore, that force is the force of Moses. We have nothing closer to us in reality, in our inner spiritual reality than this force called Moses because it is always as this conduit between the Creator and the creative being, and the created being and the force of evil, and then from evil to good. Moses serves that connection, it is as we learn about the quality of Bina which has an upper part in the Partzuf of Bina and also the lower part and a middle part, and it according to its quality provides the entirety of reality into worlds and in those worlds we can live and organize ourselves in such a way to see what worlds and what degrees we belong to for the time being, what forms of bestowal.

Therefore Moses is such a special quality in this entire process through which we grow and develop, it relates to the entire transition from in Egypt to the land of Israel, from Egypt for certain because he was born there and he received all of his forces from Pharaoh in order to know exactly what is the will to receive that he needs to rise above. And then also in the land of Israel, he also belongs to the force of bestowal and then only in the entrance to the land of Israel, the Creator tells him you cannot enter that and then he dies in the Mount Heron in the boundary between Jordan and Israel. It is a special force that accompanies us throughout the entire process of our development, in our development from the will to receive from Egypt until the will to bestow of Israel, that is the force of Moses, fe is the greatest teacher and the greatest force that accompanied us and that services us, yes.

S. Does he speak with this kindness, is this Bina, or does he speak with this command?

R. Here we speak about commands, from the commands if we deepen in them, then we will feel qualities as well.

43.S. (01:48:48) Is the revelation of Moses and the feeling of the fall that comes with, is it only one time when you come out to spirituality, or does it repeat itself when you keep on advancing spiritually?

R. Moses is a quality that it's in each and every person and we can awaken it and progress thanks to it, that is all, but when does it reveal, it reveals when we are ready for exiting, until then Moses as is told about him, he goes through preparation to become a leader of the nation. He escapes from Jethro and from all kinds of events that take place to him in order to know what forces he is included in.

44. S. (01:50:11) So if I understand correctly, Moses is only the guide that leads us to the Border, teaching us how to turn to the Creator, and later we don't need him, right?

R. Incorrect, it's a force that dresses on us and remains in us and each time we reveal it more and more in us, and as such we progress from the exit from Egypt until all the actions that the Torah describes to us until we reach the entrance to the land of Israel and there it's also written that Moses, as if also lives in us, and in his force until that day he holds us.

45. S. (01:51:21) No translation

R. Moses acts on us now too, it's a force it's not a person, it acts on us, and we need to detect it, it's not that there’s past, present, and future here, but if we attract the forces of connection then we discover the force of Moses within us.

46. S. (01:52:30) What are the signs that we are advancing on the path of truth?

R. The signs that we come closer together, that we feel that we have a common spiritual fate, and we don't feel connection between us so much in order to see from those things for the future but we do have for certain from the beginning from above, forces come to us that insert us each and every one of us, in his place in the system of connection between us in such a way that we progress. So we only need to understand that here there is a matrix of people, where each one is there to complement the others in all kinds of ways. Where if you knew and could divide these and those tens, not related to our usual tens outside of this holiday, so this is where we are in such groups that the Creator organizes us in. Therefore the work that the Creator does to us is very special, you will see, it's like a baby who is under the control of his parents, the parents you could say manipulate it in all kinds of ways and he participates in his own quietness in what they do and that's called that he devotes himself to them, and with him it's done naturally and with us it's done unnaturally. That despite our will to receive, we do what it wishes to do, and we need to be grateful to him for that.

47. S. (01:55:50) What does Moses explain to them this matter of what comes from above for the sake of the Creator?

R. For the sake of the Creator means I am willing to join the Creator with my will to receive and to carry out everything the Creator wants out of me wanting to incorporate in Him and to add everything I have to Him. All the forces I have the desires, the thoughts, I wish to ascribe to the Creator, this is the work Moses teaches them what to do, that's it this is why he is called ‘the loyal Shepherd’, one who brings a person to be in such adhesion with the Creator.

48. S. (01:56:57) We learned that the deficiency and the light the Creator gives, in item one sixty-three it says, “thanks to Moses the right vessels where reveal for work, for fulfillment because the revelation of evil could come to them”, does that mean that we reveal all the deficiency that we could reveal towards the Creator through Moses?

R. Yes, that's one of the steps.

49. S. (01:57:38) When we gathered here the feelings are very strong and they give me a lot of pleasure but I do not feel together with you, whether I am aimed at the Creator, whether the connection with the Creator comes at a more advanced state?

R. It's enough for you to feel that you're a little bit among your friends and with them, so being connected in a group with the friends, that's enough for you in the meantime, it helps you advance.

50. S. (01:59:10) The society gives us the stability in our scrutinies and importance of the King, as I perform actions in the ten, what happens to the lack of spirit in Malchut we read about in the first excerpt, what is observable for us?

R. When we went to connect together, to have a full Malchut as much as we can, consolidated maybe not full but consolidated, and we want to elevate it to in order to bestow, that's how we establish Malhut, that's how we correct it.

51. S. (02:00:24) If I understand correctly, the force of Moses is the demand to bring out everyone out from here?

R. Yes.

S. How does Moses gather and bring everyone out?

R. He passes on to them the force of bestowal and as the verse goes, “I don't leave anyone under the Parsa I elevate everyone above the Parsa and this is how he brings everyone out from slavery to freedom.

52. S. (02:01:32) You said that Moses reveals when we exit from egypt and before that he himself is in some kind of preparation, how do we participate in the preparation of Moses. what do we need to reveal?

R. We need to discover a deficiency so that we will connect to a force that will draw us from in order to receive to in order to bestow, that's the force of the Creator that works through Moses.

S. You said that he's also built of something?

R. It’s made of Malchut and Bina that’s willing to perform this connection between us and Bina.

53. S. (02:02:52) How can I hold faith within me during the day?

R. This is a big problem and we're going to have to talk a lot about it, I'm willing; but first you need to talk among yourselves, men, women, how can you maintain your connection with the spiritual process during the day. Where all kinds of events we feel that we go through during the day, won't detach us from what we want to go through, but rather will help us advance towards the goal of creation so the question is a very practical question, it’s the most practical and important question how can we do it? I don't know, we have a lot of radio shows, we have programs, you should also organize such programs, maybe in these new languages like the Turkish language and more so that we can broadcast them to the whole world. Whoever is fluent in this language should have want to hear and how to connect to us, I don't know in this business too much but those, the ones who are doing this work, should appear before you and explain what it means do we have in order to always be brainwashed, really with these forces of advancement.

S. Since we have a lot of things in corporeality it's very hard to hold on to it, and I forget and escape from thinking those correct thoughts which are aimed at the path.

R. I understand you but actually we have a different thing, we are trying to make your Torah, there forever and your work is not permanent, meaning when I do all kinds of actions for this world and I have to be in it during most of the hours of the day, by the thought, I can always try to be in thoughts about spiritual advancement, with songs, with all kinds of excerpts, with everything I can. And in other kinds of work I will also b in a smaller wave, that's how we do, but nonetheless don't leave what we call Kedusha, holiness, good luck

54. S. (02:07:13) in the beginning Moses was only a force that gave us direction, how then does he become the force to get us out of Egypt?

R. Moses acts according to the need with respect to those people who wish to come out of egypt so he comes to Pharaoh's speaking and if he leads them in the desert meaning where they don't feel any life, any advancement in a good way. Moses is, how should I say it, well, he does everything that is required to advance the group, the ten towards the Creator under all the conditions that the Creator brings them and with all the states that the group is capable of receiving and coming closer to the Creator, that's the force that connects.

55. S. (02:08:55) It says here in the article, “Moses came to Pharaoh” so he says “ever since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, meaning that we must work for the sake of the Creator and the quality of Pharaoh must descend from its throne”, and then it says “there was room for the revelation of evil”, so how can, if the Pharaoh must descend, how can we reveal the evil, and there is no evil so what does this mean?

R. It's as if he was supposed to come down, descend from his throne and then there was a revelation of evil so you can overcome him and with the struggle to bring the Creator's rule there. Without the revelation of Pharaoh there cannot be a revelation of the Creator because that's one force, it only appears in two ways: either in order to receive or in order to bestow. And then Moses is the exact force, the third Force that can pass from the evil inclination to the good one, so what's your question

S. What gives this room for the revelation of evil, when the Pharaoh steps down there's no evil anymore, so what gives room for the revelation of the evil?

R. I don't understand this state, I can't depict it, there's Pharaoh and there's Moses and there's Israel there, and the people of Israel are putting pressure on Moses and on Pharaoh, and Moses wants to bring out the people of Israel from the rule of Pharaoh, right? This is what you're talking about?

S. Because it says here “there was room for the revelation of evil” and also in the same sentence it says “Pharaoh must descend from its throne”, so if Pharaoh descends from his throne there's no evil left, so how can I reveal the evil, what gives the room for the revelation of evil then. I don't understand this sentence, can you elaborate on it?

R. I agree with you that's incorrect, we have to understand this in the right way: Pharaoh is the evil inclination that is being revealed in the will to receive called Egypt  and then what should be done is to bring the people of Israel out, apart that is Galgalta ve Eynaim, it doesn't really matter, the vessels of bestowel to bring them out of Egypt. By that what's left in Egypt is only vessels of reception, the vessels of bestowal came out of Egypt and the vessels of reception they remain in so what Egypt, so are you asking about it?

S. So what gives the room for the revelation of the evil inclination?

R. The room for the revelation the evil, what gives that is the desire for the people of Israel to come out of Egypt; previously when they were in Egypt the evil wasn't revealed so much, it wasn't clear where the border is, the difference between good and evil. Now because they want to come out of Egypt, so in this separation, in this exodus, they start distinguishing themselves from the Egyptians with all kinds of actions, all kinds of ways, and then you can see this is evil this is good. And this is called Pharoah grew, became more evil, became more demanding etc., so what are you asking about this state.

56. S. (02:15:05) On one hand Moses is an eternal force but when he reveals and then he acts in us all the time, on the other hand they brought him out of Egypt and into the land of it Israel and afterward he died, what does it mean he died, a dead force, how can it be?

R. After he put into us all the quality of his that we need, all the rest we can develop on our own, and to walk by the force of Moses which is already in us, we no longer need him as a figure, as a leader, but rather this quality is already in each and everyone and this is how we should behave. Within each and every soul, within each and every desire there is a quality of Moses, as it is written that Moses is with us within each and every generation.

57. S. (02:16:47) If each and everyone else has the force of Moses then is it correct to ask the Creator for the force of Moses to reveal in us?

R. First of all we have to reach a state that will want the quality of Moses to be revealed and then later he is revealed and as it is revealed. In the meantime he prepares himself to the meeting with us, that's the whole story with Jethro and all that, and later he already enters to the connection with the people of Israel and starts being revealed in it.

S. How can we want the force of Moses to reveal in us?

R. If we want to discover the Creator we need to know our destiny, the purpose of our life, what's going on with us, so we need to discover the Creator and discovering the Creator means we're looking for by what means we can do that, where's the means to reveal the Creator? Then we discover Moses which is within each and every one each of us has this quality called Moses.

S. Is it the quality of choice that brought me here, that's the force of Moses?

R.There's a very interesting thing that we haven't yet research from the perspective of the Sephirot, there's Keter, Hochma and Bina in between, and we need Bina which is divided into many parts so that through the work within each and every part, we are going to connect or tie Malchut with Keter.

S. In the preparation we were asked to imagine the force of Moses in the ten, is that beneficial or does it put us into some illusion?

R. About this we will talk already maybe in the next lesson, in the meantime let's sing and end this lesson.
