Emor- What is time?

אֵלֶּה מוֹעֲדֵי יְהוָה, מִקְרָאֵי קֹדֶשׁ, אֲשֶׁר-תִּקְרְאוּ אֹתָם, בְּמוֹעֲדָם
These are the appointed seasons of G-d, even holy convocations, which you shall proclaim in their appointed season.

The word “מועד”, (=season =time) has the numerical value of 120. This connects us to the 12 months, signs of the Zodiac and that control the energy flow from each constellation.
G-d tells us about special times in a year, where there is a special energy available to us. He instructs us to announce them as a form of connection to that time/energy.

\"\"Albert Einstein said that time is just another dimension, a fourth one to go along with the up-down, side-side, forward-back we move through every day. Our understanding of time, Einstein said, is based on its relationship to our environment. The most radical interpretation of his theory: Past, present, and future are merely figments of our imagination, constructs built by our brains so that everything doesn’t seem to happen at once.
Einstein’s conception of unified space-time works better on graph paper than in the real world. Time isn’t like those other dimensions – for one thing, we move only one way within it.
Again; you can move in space in any direction, but time has only ONE direction.
Why so? Why can’t we go back in time?

The simple answer is; Time is illusion, a TEMPOrary perception. If we can’t move freely in time then we don’t need to and we don’t have to. Time exists only on the material level to create a state of beginning and end. There is no time in the spiritual dimensions.
The experience of time change from one person to another, and from one event to another.

Time was created for us so we can do our “time”. We were born into time frame to define and do work. We’ve been “pushed” into matter, the prison of the soul, a place of work with beginning and end.
The portion of Emor gives us the time map of the Holidays, a time where we can connect to higher levels to get help in doing our time.

Behar – Who is a Jew?


Please note that the word for Jewish, "יהודי" does not appear in the whole Torah. (It is found in the other two parts of the bible but as reference to individuals.)
Jacob is Israel (See Genesis 32:29) and his children are the twelve tribes. They came to the land of milk and honey, settled in and built the Holy Temple.


כִּי-לִי בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, עֲבָדִים–עֲבָדַי הֵם, אֲשֶׁר-הוֹצֵאתִי אוֹתָם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם:  אֲנִי, יְקוָק אֱלֹהֵיכֶם
For me, the children of Israel are servants; they are my servants whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

Many people translate "the Children of Israel" to "The Jewish people".

Please note that the word for Jewish, "יהודי" does not appear in the whole Torah. (It is found in the other two parts of the bible but as reference to individuals.)

After the death of King Solomon, Rehoboam, his son causes a split in the nation. This situation allowed negativity to get in and brought the exile of the ten tribes, "The Lost Tribes".

We know that the tribe of Yehuda supported Rehoboam, the king of Israel, the son of Solomon, the son of David.

A Jew, "יהודי", connects to the tribe of Yehuda and to the line of David. Prophesies tells us about G-d\’s promises to gather us from all the nations (Ezekiel 20:34).  In Ezekiel 20:40 G-d says that in the Holy Mountain, all the house of Israel will serve G-d.
כִּי בְהַר-קָדְשִׁי בְּהַר מְרוֹם יִשְׂרָאֵל, נְאֻם אֲדֹנָי יְקוָק –שָׁם יַעַבְדֻנִי כָּל-בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל כֻּלֹּה, בָּאָרֶץ: 
שָׁם אֶרְצֵם–וְשָׁם אֶדְרוֹשׁ אֶת-תְּרוּמֹתֵיכֶם וְאֶת-רֵאשִׁית מַשְׂאוֹתֵיכֶם, בְּכָל-קָדְשֵׁיכֶם
 The "children of Israel" refers to all the Tribes, including the lost ten. They could be your neighbors. If they were not born as Jewish, "יהודי", it doesn\’t mean that they are not from the house of Israel.

The root of the word redemption "גְּאֻלָּה" appears in this parasha more than in any others. It also guides us to be honest and support each other. The code of seven that repeats in the parasha, represent the final Shabbat, the elevation to the light of Binah. It will be when all Israel will be united in the Holy Mountain, "בהר" (=207= Light="אור"). 

Love your neighbor as yourself. He could be your brother, really your brother.

 

Kedoshim – Don\’t go out! Someone is about to \”shoot\” you…

The Zohar tells us that Kedoshim includes the whole torah. If the Zohar states that huge statement then we need to stop and dig in to find out why. It is a short portion but with huge spiritual depth.
 
 
(Leviticus 19)

14:לֹא-תְקַלֵּל חֵרֵשׁ וְלִפְנֵי עִוֵּר לֹא תִתֵּן מִכְשֹׁל וְיָרֵאתָ מֵּאֱלֹהֶיךָ אֲנִי יְקוָק
16:לֹא תֵלֵךְ רָכִיל בְּעַמֶּיךָ לֹא תַעֲמֹד עַל דַּם רֵעֶךָ  אֲנִי, יְקוָק
17:לֹא-תִשְׂנָא אֶת-אָחִיךָ בִּלְבָבֶךָ הוֹכֵחַ תּוֹכִיחַ אֶת עֲמִיתֶךָ וְלֹא תִשָּׂא עָלָיו חֵטְא
18:לֹא תִקֹּם וְלֹא תִטֹּר אֶת בְּנֵי עַמֶּךָ וְאָהַבְתָּ לְרֵעֲךָ כָּמוֹךָ אֲנִי יְקוָקְ 

14: You shall not curse the deaf, nor put a stumbling-block
before the blind, but you shall fear your G-d: I am the Lord. 
16: You shall not go up and down as a gossiper among your people;
neither shall you stand on the blood of your neighbor: I am the LORD 
17: You shall not hate your brother in your heart; You shall surely  
rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him. 
18: You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children
of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as thyself: I am the LORD

We\’ll understand this soon but let me ask you this.
If a person shot another person in order to kill him and missed, did he kill him?
 You may say; No, if he missed him then he didn\’t kill him. You are right, but spiritually you are wrong.

If a person aims to kill another, he had already imagined him as dead. If he took the shot then he killed the other person. The physical appearance doesn\’t matter when considering the effect on the person attempted to kill.

If he went to kill and stopped before completing the act, it is different because the new choice came to be and it cancelled the previous one.
 
Let\’s take a short lesson in nuclear physics. Name of the lesson is "Does matter exists?"
 

Scientists teach us that surrounding every atom there is an electromagnetic field which is energy and not matter. Even surrounding electrons and nuclei is a field and even the particles that make up the electron which revolve around the atom is probably another electromagnetic field and whatever makes up those particles is probably surrounded by an electromagnetic field and so on.
Atoms never actually touch one another. They are in constant movement in space.

 Whatever we see is what we perceive to be matter, but in fact, it is only a reflection of light, projected into a screen in the back of our inner eye. It is an upside down image and we need the brain to interpret it for us. 
Without going to deep into this subject, I ask you again, Does matter exists? What keeps the fields of energy organized in a particular pattern?

  I hope that I prepared you enough for the next statement.

 Leviticus 19:1
"דַּבֵּר אֶל-כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם–קְדֹשִׁים תִּהְיוּ:
כִּי קָדוֹשׁ, אֲנִי יְקוָק אֱלֹהֵיכֶם"
"Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them:
You shall be holy; for I the LORD your G-d am holy"
 

There are no conditions said here. It is simple; be holy because I am holy.


 
Your patterns exists in the space which is G-d. Your individual matter is represented as patterns of energy that makes you. It is the sum of your desires that defines your vessel. This is what holds the Light inside and in connection with "the space", internally and externally.


 
Now that you have this in your mind read the Parasha again and again. Suddenly you will understand it differently because the mystery has just been revealed. G-d gave us the gift of being with us in every heart beat. He is Holy and whatever you do affects the patterns of energy, which uses the Light of the Creator as drive to keep us in motion and express the self and its desires.
If we act in ways which are not Holy, we contaminate the Holiness inside.
 

We cannot curse the deaf (Lev. 19:14) because it takes us out of holiness. It doesn\’t matter if he heard us or not. If one steals and wasn\’t caught, he is still a thief. If you hate your brother in your heart (Lev. 19:17), you don\’t have to express it for the effect to take place in your space.

 
To "bear a sin on yourself" is the effect on your soul (the energy patterns). When it says "his blood shall be upon him", it is the effect of the sin as it registers in the blood. Every sin creates a barrier between the Light and the vessel. If there is no likeness with the light, the DNA gets changed and creates openness for negativity.
 
Rabbi Shimon says in the Zohar that when negativity is in town, don\’t show yourself in the markets (where people are). When there is negativity in the space, we better stay away from it.
 

Every person is responsible for his own actions and for all that is in his surrounding space. Lev. 19:17 instructs us to care for our neighbors, to make sure they follow the ways of the Light, otherwise we will carry their sins. Their actions impact the space that we share and affect us. 19:18 tells us to make our space as one with the others because the light doesn\’t want to be within the limits, which is you. Sharing connects us together and expands the light beyond ourselves.

 
Imagine a picture that everyone is still connected to their mother with the umbilical cord. You would see a huge tree of people connected to each other. The light wants us to reach that point where we see each other as ourselves. No separation.
 
Lev. 19:4 teaches us not to turn to idols. Idols are the illusionary "materials" that we want to have and connect. They are not the light and they distracting us from connecting to what is important.

When it says that G-d created us in his own image. "
