Vayishlach – The power of consciousness

Jacob established the channel for the central column. And brought balance to the world. His sons came from that pure seed and they were all great spiritual forces. Each of them represents one of the 12 energies of the year (The Zodiac).

וַיֵּלֶךְ רְאוּבֵן וַיִּשְׁכַּב אֶת-בִּלְהָה פִּילֶגֶשׁ אָבִיו, וַיִּשְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל .

Jacob established the channel for the central column. And brought balance to the world. His sons came from that pure seed and they were all great spiritual forces. Each of them represents one of the 12 energies of the year (The Zodiac).

G-d was waiting for the right people to connect to him and draw more light to the world. Like in physical light, all you need to is to remove the blockage from its path.

Rachel was on a higher level and after she died, Reuben knew that if his father connects to Bilha, it would not be the same as with Rachel or His mother, Leah.

When Rachel gave Bilha to Jacob she used her as a tool to bring children for herself. The consciousness is the actual control of the connection between a man and a woman.

A couple should always conceal their place and time of connection. When done it should be in total darkness (to disconnect from the material world around and to have better influence of their consciousness into the act.). A women counts seven \’clean\’ days after her monthly cycle is finished. On the eighth day she goes to the Miqveh (ritual immersing in water for spiritual cleansing). That night she bonds with her husband to make the Mitzvah of " פרו־ורבו " "be fruitful and multiply".

This act is very important; the vessel (egg) in the woman is ready to receive the light (seed of the man). The seed is caledl " זרע " = 277 in Hebrew and is built from " רז " = " אור " = 207 + " ע " = 70 (represent seven lower Sefirot). For the knowledgeable of you read Psalms 97:11 " אוֹר, זָרֻעַ לַצַּדִּיק; וּלְיִשְׁרֵי-לֵב שִׂמְחָה ". (Notice that the letter vav is missing from the second word).

If another person knows about a connection of a couple, they could influence the consciousness of the connection and the result could be a child that is not really theirs.

When Rachel gave Bilha to Jacob she actually controlled the connection and the consciousness. The children came pure and spiritually high.

Reuben knew that his father would connect to Bilha on the eighth day, the \’Mitzvah\’ day. Rachel was gone so the connection would be with Bilha and not with the proper consciousness. This could bring a child that was not at the level of his brothers. The Zohar explains that Reuben moved his father\’s bed on the Mitzvah day (the eighth day) and created a disconnection in the spiritual realm between Jacob and Bilha.

He did the right thing and for that, the Torah scroll shows a new paragraph to begin in the middle of the verse. That space in the middle of the verse signifies a great light. The verse ends with " וַיִּהְיוּ בְנֵי-יַעֲקֹב, שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר " " Now the sons of Jacob were twelve ".

We learn about the importance of the consciousness that is involved when a husband and wife is connected. Bringing a child to the world is a serious act and not a simple physical connection and transferring some matter between one and the other. Only one seed can penetrate the egg and once it does, all the rest \’escorting\’ seeds are there to help the connection of the Light and vessel. It maybe a tiny, microscopic matter but it can carry a world of consciousness.

Genesis – 2

Genesis2 – The earth was unformed and void

In this part I want to stay at the time (if we can call it that) before the creation.
The Zohar and the Ari teach us about this time. The word " בְּרֵאשִׁית ", "In the Beginning", implies " ב " " רֵאשִׁית ", which means two beginnings, two heads, and two systems.

The Zohar and the Ari teach us about this time. The word " בְּרֵאשִׁית ", "In the Beginning", implies " ב " " רֵאשִׁית ", which means two beginnings, two heads, and two systems.

The first thing in the creation process was to set up the spiritual system. It had to be there before creating the physical world.

In order to have a world that we could be the creators we needed a "working environment", where we could build and create new. This place or level is called Malchut, (kingship in English). As Rabbi Ashlag explains, G-d created the desire first. Desire was something new that had never been there. G-d only shares and loves. The desire was to receive, to rule, to make. We needed this desire as a tool to live in this world and be a creator.
The kingdom was for us to rule. For that G-d made a Crown (Keter in Hebrew) that is able to emanate the necessary powers to initiate and create changes in the world.
G-d also designated two \’feeds\’ or \’advisors to the Crown\’ to follow the initiative of the Crown, one with Wisdom (Chokmah, male energy) and one with Understanding (Binah, female energy). When they summoned together they brought out the Knowledge (Da\’at) that can channel the energy and manifest as new work.
Now that we had the potential kingdom, and the top three forces, G-d needed a king.
The kingdom was still full of light and there was not much work to do. Kings were created and then \’died\’. The code is concealed in Genesis (36:31).

This process is described in Kabbalah as the "Process of the Breaking of The Vessels" " תהליך־שבירת־הכלים ". (Vessel=the ability to hold and channel the light). Each one of the kings came to existence with the desire to rule but the amount of light that was there was too strong for their vessels to hold and so they broke. The light went back to its origin and what was left was the desire of the shattered vessels. Those desires are called Klipot (Klipa in singular form). The Klipot held onto some of the light that the vessel had contained in a brief moment.

The 7 kings came and went and left 288 sparks of light in the hands of the Klipot.
This information is concealed in the word (Genesis 1:2) " מְרַחֶפֶת " "מת־רפח" (= Died, 288).
This process created the world of correction, \’Tikkun\’. The tikkun is the process of taking back the light from the Klipa and elevate it to the source. Originally, there were 320 lights in the process. 288 " רפח " of them fell into the Klipa and 32 of them that are the light of the Torah stayed for the next process.
The words " תֹהוּ וָבֹהו ּ ", "unformed and void", have seven letters for the seven kings.
It is all about desire. Desire draws the light and gives us the energy to continue. Lack of desire could make a person homeless and in extreme cases, the soul that is made out of light, wish to disconnect from the weak vessel and cause the vessel to break by taking its own life. The soul then goes to seek another vessel.
If this information is too new to you and hard to understand, read it again and again. Email your questions because of understanding how and why the world was created is an important step. What is our purpose here and what is your individual purpose in life.
This understanding could connect you to the global GPS (see previous article: http://rabbishimon.com/rs/torahc.cfm?p=Ekev ) and take your desires to fulfillments without breaking the vessel.
