The red heifer. What was the red heifer about? The Torah says that in this combination of taking this red heifer, it must be red, very clearly, it must be 'parah' it must be a heifer or a cow 'temimah', without a blemish faultless, again if you were to read just the translation it's totally incomprehensible because it says already 'temimah' now if you know what 'temimah' means in hebrew, it means faultless, means there's nothing wrong with it and then what does it say? It has no blemish. Well, of course, if it is 'temimah', then obviously there is no blemish. Why is there a repetition of the word? And because on the ox or some other work animal, you put a yoke around it, so you stir it or pull it and so on. On this animal, there was never presented upon her all. The purpose of the heifer according to the Torah was to remove uncleanliness. What the Torah is telling us here is this that like people we describe as some people, "Oh he's so negative" "He is very positive". What are we implying when we discuss someone being negative and someone being positive? What does that mean? It means that this person is actually channeling negative vibration or negative fields of energy and a positive person is transmitting, emitting positives fields of energy, so that even exists by an individual. But the difference is that an individual has free will and choice to either once act as a channel for positivity or act as a channel for negativity. The animal kingdom has no free will. They have been designated as positive channels or negative channels. We learn from the Torah that the ox or the 'parah' is the channel for negative energy What is 'tamei'? We've said that this is coming to cleanse Cleanse, if we can use that word, but it doesn't mean that. It means rather to restore a circuit of energy. When a person becomes 'tamei' it means not uncleanliness it means he has become short-circuitness. He has now generated an aspect, you know, if you have a flow of energy, there's a completeness, like in the bulb, the moment short-circuitness takes over what do you have? Darkness, closed, opaque, you can't see through. The person has become closed, Closed to his detriment, because we usually know a person who is open-minded, a person who can see things all around him, can then take it all and come to some form of a logical conclusion, but when we discuss an individual who we say, "He's close-minded" Is that a liability? Of course, it is. When he's close-minded meaning he's not taking all of the facts that are presented in his daily life taking them all together, trying to understand all of this factors. Because what would the accountant tell a business man who fails? You forgot to take into account this, that or the other thing. So he failed. The same way as people fail in their life for the reason or had I known this or had known that. The question is why didn't you know because you were closed to a certain extent or to a certain area. This whole aspect of the heifer was to open up the individual to remove the 'tamei', remove that opaqueness, to remove that close-mindedness so that you can see almost from beginning to end the whole picture, like when you want to build a building. It's only a fool who would say I'll plan the 84th floor without planning the foundation. He's got to see the whole building not to see the conclusion, the 84th floor, because he may never get to the 84th floor. Understanding what makes things work the way they should they chose the red heifer. Red and heifer and not to have any blemishes What does it mean there is no, because anything that can disrupt the flow of energy, which is all that this is about, which in any way can disrupt the flow of energy would not produce the desired result which would be what? Restoring a complete flow of energy. So the red heifer is not something we do not discuss. On the contrary, the Zohar discuss it in complete detail. When we hear, the reading via that scroll and the purpose of this world, you know what that does it takes us back in time when there was this heifer when there was this form of restoration for those who for whatever reason have created negative flows of energy in their life and have created short-circuitness in their own life. How do you restore it? How do you again provide an influx of energy not to be drained, not to be burned out? Is by listening to this particular reading in the Beit Kenesset, on Shabbat because you go back to the time when this was established and at that moment you are drawing, not to the physical extent of what to place there, but you will be drawing the equivalency of that kind of energy when you connect via Torah to this energy. So the reading of this section is not merely to just reveal another part of the Torah, which seems to be meaningless for must of us today but actually to connect to that procedure and that procedure was the most powerful restoration of energy of anything that even the High Priest could have established. The restoration of energy even that the High Priest. On Yom Kippur, he did not restore energy. He was a channel to bring down that kind of energy but the restoration of individual energy for the individual was the red heifer. So this was the significance.
