Hello everyone, we're back in the power of Kabbalah 3, and this is the 5th session. And the subject we are going to speak about is understanding the concept of inner Light and surrounding Light. What is that concept. Inner Light represents the level of enlightenment that can handle based on my level spirituality, my level of Vessel, my level of affinity with the light of the Creator. Surrounding Light representing the aspect of the Light I'm not yet ready to handle, it's my potential. So let's picture for example 10 circles which the inner circle represent the lower lever of spirituality, level number 1 and the outer circle, represent the highest level of spirituality level number 10. So lets say the level of Light that I can handle is the 3rd circle level number 3, that's how much my Vessel can handle. From 4 to 10 its considered to be my surrounding Light. It means it's there, its around my soul but I'm not ready to handle it yet. My capacity is to handle all the way, 1, 2 and 3. From 4 to 10, it's beyond my intensity of my Vessel, my size of my Vessel, the level of affinity to the Light. As I'm growing from 3 to 4 so 4, that was my surrounding Light becomes my inner Light. Now what become my immediate surrounding Light 5, of course also 6,7 8 and 9, but surrounding Light is the one level above. Now how does it work in real life. All the spiritual action that it's comfortable for me to do. Spiritual action, positive attitude, understanding, seeing life in spiritual ways. As long as its comfortable for me to do and its pretty natural for me to do. It means I already attained that Light that level, after 3, its all okay and fine. But all those spiritual actions that it's beyond my comfort zone, the reason it's beyond my comfort zone because my Vessel not ready to handle that Light, that energy, so its considered to be my surrounding Light, my potential. I need to stretch myself to go to that next level and next level. But the nature of the Light is to help us to ascend, to grow. So the Light wants in all its different ways to allow that if my inner Light is up to 3 that my surrounding Light number 4 someone will get in. The Light wants in different ways to penetrate that I'll expand my Vessel that from 3 I'll go to 4 from 4 I'll go to 5 and so on. And that's what truly spiritual growth is about. What is the different ways we feel the surrounding Light there's internal battle between the inner Light and surrounding Light, the purpose of the Kilpot is to remain in level 3 and not to expand and to create a wall between me, between my consciousness and my surrounding Light. A wall that's represented by fears, its too uncomfortable, its too much I cannot handle it, it's beyond me, I'm pretty happy with what I'm doing already. But we know the rules of the game. If I'm not going from 3 to 4, I'll go from 3 to 2.30, from 2.30 to 2 and so on. My Vessel will shrink as the Rav alway say either you grow or you fall. Life is as if you standing in an escalator that is going down. If I'm just standing still, I'm simply going down. Especially when we speak about spiritual growth, transformation, expanding our consciousness. So one of the simple way we feel our surrounding Light very often we get a gut feeling tell us do it. Let's go, commit fire someone, go to the next level, stretch yourself. In any meaningful area in my life, and then the fear's telling me not sure, not now, tomorrow. What is the fight really between my surrounding Light and my inner Light. The surrounding Light that knocking at the door of my vessel, I want to come in. Do that next action, if you do that next action, if you'll stretch yourself I'll come in, I'll become your inner Light and my Kilpot tells me forget about it I'm pretty happy with the level I am at and that's what the fight is about. But we have to understand always between my inner Light and surrounding Light, our fears. There's laziness, there's procastination, there's doubts. Those are the technology that Satan is using to prevent me from pushing to the next level. That's the fight we all going through. Staying stuck in the same level. A person can be very spiritual and he transforms himself in the last five years but now he's stuck. That's what Satan wants. Even if it will give me to be a little spiritual as long as I'm not moving forward, because if I'm not moving forward I'm going backwards and even Satan will use my spiritual levels to make me feel that I'm great and better than others. Then it feeds all my spiritual worth, feeding my ego and doesn't really help me in a real way. Now, lets define, being able to handle more energy, why, I'm 3 and I cannot handle 4, what's wrong about it. So I say I want 4 and if you don't want 4, sure you want 4, more Light, more blessings more fulfillment. So why we fighting and not having fun, what's wrong about it. I want more Light in my life, if I ask you another question, how many of you would like more Light in your life? And if you will not raise the hand, we all going to raise the hand. But the truth is we don't want more Light in. Why? Because there is a price, that we're afraid of. The three main ingredients that determine expanding my Vessel from 3 to 4 from 4 to 5, is in three areas. — The one area, of course the first which is not of the three, is first I need to want more. But really wanting more includes a few things, am I willing to give up more, to give more, to stretch myself in giving more of myself outside of my comfort zone. That's one determination of expanding my Vessel. Number two, am I willing to develop stronger restriction power, letting go power and number three, am I willing to surrender more, to trust more, to trust beyond logic, certainty beyond logic, when things are not comfortable, when things are not my way, am I willing to surrender to the next degree. To trust, those are the three major ingredients, that determine strengthening my Vessel. So very often if you really want to test it. At night you say, Light I really want to go to my next level. I'm too stuck in the same level, I'm now level 3, I want to go to level 4. I'm ready and I'm willing actually to expand my Vessel, bring it on. You know what's going to happen the next day or two days later. Suddenly, certain situation will challenge me. A friend that I had good relationship suddenly I realize that actually it's not so great. Or somebody will ask me for help but its too much for me, or something I though of as so sure and secure in my life will collapse suddenly. Why, because anybody try to punish me. The Light wants to help me to strengthen my Vessel, to expand my Vessel. So it will send me tests that will help me. To increase the level of my restriction, to increase my level of giving and to increase my level of certainty. Because those are the main three things that determine expanding my Vessel. When we speak raising my consciousness that I can handle more Light, that's what it means. More giving beyond my comfort zone, more restriction and letting go and more certainty beyond logic and more trust and more surrender when things don't seem to be my way. But all the other attributes, which is letting go of control overcoming lazy, it's all within the same frame, overcoming fears. Fear of failure, fear of success, fear of rejection, fear of being judged. What's the other side of overcoming fear, certainty beyond logic, go for it. I know it's my level, just trust, jump go for it. Don't calculate, don't hesitate, don't procrastinate, trust. Yeah but I want to be able to handle the Light without any jump, I just would like to open myself and everything is great. It doesn't work this way. I need to this certain price to go from 3 to 4. To allow the surrounding Light to become part of my Light, part of my comfort, part of my natural being, part of my blessings, that can be retained in a lasting way. —The Rav in his book, The Power of You has a chapter, about stress, whole chapter about stress and in this Chapter the Rav speak about imagine you run a factory and you produced certain amount and you decided listen I need to go to the next level of the factory, I need to bring bigger machinery to manufacture these goods. So you order the new machinery, and then the structural engineer tells you, sorry sir your floor cannot handle this new machinery. It's too heavy. So you have few options, say you know what, okay I'll stay the same size company. That's one option. What's the other option, reinforce the floor, that you can handle more weight and then you have that more, more advanced machinery or maybe you move to a new place that the floor is more stronger that can handle it. So if I want to go to my next level to bring bigger machinery I need to do something to my Vessel. I need to reinforce the floor. I need to expand it, the ability to handle more, of that energy now if I don't reinforce the floors, what's going to happen? It will be a pressure that my floor won't be able to handle and it will break me. And that's what stress really is about. Kabbalistically, any time I'm facing pressure for whatever reason financial, friendship, love, deadlines, too much work being you know pulled for so many directions, any time I'm facing pressure, it's the surrounding Light wants to come in. When I'm saying I can't take it anymore, it's horrible, and I'm blaming the whole reality you know what I am saying, the Rav is saying I'm telling the Light, I don't want your surrounding Light let me stay in level 3. The Kabbalists will say bring it on, I know this is in my life to expand my Vessel. Where is the areas I can strengthen my certainty in the midst of it. Instead of fighting it, it's in my life already maybe I need to change certain things maybe I need to put more priority, maybe I need to no go to say no to some people. But if it's in my life, I have a choice to treat it as a bad pressure or a good pressure that is expanding my Vessel, I need to reinforce the floor. So instead of treating it as a bad pressure that I believe maybe I can't handle it. I need to pause and to say it's there to help me to expand my Vessel. That's the time I need to inject more certainty and trust, I'm sure I can handle it. That's the time I say where can I give of myself more, where can I let go more where can I use more tools, like the tools of the Zohar, the tool of the Ana Beko'ach, that is so essential tools, if you didn't learn about it, look at the Kabbalah University for the specific classes about it. Because expanding my Vessel and expanding my consciousness, I need tools to say just certainty and restriction, what are the tools metaphysical tools to change me, DNA. I need to use the power of the Hebrew letters the meditation, the Ana Beko'ach the Zohar that in a seed DNA level, to expand me and to change me but not just for the sake of scanning it and I'll be lucky, for the sake of igniting the Light igniting the expanded consciousness in me. But that's the reason I'm going through pressure, is the Light knocking on my Vessel I want to come in, I want to give you more, what are we saying, too much. Too much Light, it's not too much Light. And if that pressure came my way, it's an indication I can handle it, if not it wouldn't come my way, it wouldn't come my way. How is it possible two partners of the same business going through major pressure, not being able to pay the bills, the banks' manager running after them, person collapses, almost have a heart attack, the other person is struggling, but working threes and actually come with creative ideas to go to the next level in business. So how can you say the pressure is bad, pressure is energy. You make it good or bad. It's either energy that's giving me the chance and the opportunity to expand my Vessel or if I want to listen to my kilpot, that's blocking into my inner Light wants me to to have the voice I can't handle it anymore.—This is one of the worst voice, of scripts of Satan's in our head. That's I can't handle is what actually bring eventually to what? To committing suicide. If you take it to the extreme level. I can't handle anything, I can't handle and I can't and we believe in it and the Kilpot becomes stronger and it becomes our identity and we develop fears and phobias around it. If it's in my life I can handle it. — If the pressure come practically bring it on, I know I'm going to my next level. It's an opportunity for me, there's major financial level, don't say I'm going to shrink my life, I can't handle it. No it's my opportunity to go to my next level. I'll figure how to do it you might need to be very logical about how to do it but first, in the attitude in the consciousness, if its pressure it means I'm about to go to the next level, bring it on, I'm not running away from pressure. I'm not running away from demands I'm not running away from so many things, happening in my life at the same time. This part there's a reason behind it and by me shifting my attitude to embrace it instead of rejecting it already I'm expanding my Vessel. That by itself is certainty, beyond logic, even if I don't know how I'm going to handle it. But when I'm just changing my attitude from rejecting to embracing it's already the beginning of shifting my consciousness from 3 to 4, or from 4 to 5. Of course the other way in life to expand from 3 to 4 is not to wait for pressure to come from outside. To look for that internal motivation I want to jump to number 4, I don't want to be faced with challenges, and pressure, and somebody asking me for something or major catastrophe or major rejection in my life that says its opportunity to grow. I want proactively to jump through a change. That's by the way the easiest way to have pleasure and fun in the process of road to the life. When I'm proactively choosing pressure, positive pressure not pressure for the sake of having pressure, with some people addicted to chaos, that's what I'm talking about. I'm talking about the opportunity to go to the next level in my life next level of giving, next level of commitment, next level of stretching, next level of making changes in my life, next level of study, next level of, using the tools that I have, In the next level, in the next stretch not because I have a problem, because I know life is about growth, and moving to my potential, my surrounding Light is my potential, my surrounding Light is my unseen miracles that waiting to come into my life. — And sometime I don't see they're there, but they're there. As Rav Ashlag calling it there are two forces that guiding us in life, from behind and from our front. Behind is external pressure, — in front, motivation, vision, I want to jump there, I want to risk, I want to go for it, I want to push, I want to initiate, I don't want to wait. I'm not going to be a follower's of religion or spirituality I'll do the right thing. I want to take control over my destiny, I want to jump to number 4. When each one of us is given opportunity to give to stretch ourselves, we all stretch but that stretch is still within my comfort zone. Within my comfort zone, I need to really listen to my surrounding Light to say what is the real stretch. Be real. Don't listen to what someone else suggesting, be real with yourself, what is my real next level of stretch ask these questions really. — Sometimes it's about moving to the career that you know you love that's your passion, and for so long you have excuses about why your not moving on because I'm not secure because I'm not ready. — Go for it you might need support and strength, but go towards your surrounding light don't wait until its too late and procrastinate until you have to make this change because you hate and can't stand your job and you can't stand your employer. — We all know certain areas in our life, the surrounding Light is knocking telling do it, go for it and we wait for chaos eventually to make the change. No matter what we'll make the change eventually, the more proactive and faster, I'm doing it, easier it is and more fun it is. That's the power of laziness, our body's heavy wants to procrastinate wants to wait and if we are not honest with our self, and we are listening to our laziness, to our inner Light that wants to be stuck, then we'll be blind. Then we're already going at look at people, look at life according to my agenda, according to how I want to look. There two ways to look at life, with the eyes and ears open, how can I go to the next level what's the message here, or how can I be satisfied staying at the same level. That the reason someone will tell me "You know your so amazing" and I believe in it and it will feed my ego. As the Zohar's saying a person will be guided, according to where he wants to be guided. If he wants to become purified and elevated, opportunity's in the surrounding Light will be there, if a person wants to be stuck and more connected to the impurity he will be guided as well, to be stuck. Question what we want. Do you want to justify our life, and our inner Light how righteous we are or you want to push to our surrounding Light. And that's a daily question we need to ask our self. The answers are within. Once someone asked the Rav, why do people don't remember their past lifetime? You know what the Rav answer, because people don't want to remember their past lifetime. Because if they truly remember, they'll know they need to change so many things that they have done and that the reason they are here. And it's too painful and we too afraid of it so I'd rather blur it and subconsciously not remember it because like this I can stay within my comfort zone where I am today and feel satisfied with the good that I'm doing. But if I'm really and honest everyone will tell me I'm amazing, and if I'm really connected my surrounding Light not can tell me it's nothing comparing to where you can be. The Kabbalist teaching us that you know really to take our self to the next level, to the surrounding Light constantly, my spiritual work cannot be just between me and myself and my mind and my soul and even a little meditation. I have to use other tools outside of myself, permitting the surrounding Light to push and break through my Vessel, to get me out of my Kilpot, out of my prison. Because if it's just going to be left to my mind deciding what right and what's wrong, eventually I'll be manipulated by Satan. I need to go outside of my limited world. Imagine a person drives a car and he's a good person but he has no clue that red light means to stop but he's a very good person and he's driving through a red light what's going to happen, probably have a car accident God forbid. But he's a good person isn't it, but he's too much into himself, I'm a good person I know how to drive, I know how to use the car, he didn't look for the other influences in the road, the traffic lights and many other things in our life. The same thing I would like to introduce us a little bit outside influences, part of the surrounding Light ways to expand and to grow. Many of you maybe touched upon it with your teachers, with other study, but, beyond the influences which are internal there's external influences that allow us to expand and access our surrounding Light, and we call it windows in time. In the Gregorian calendar, solar system we have 365 days during the year. In the Lunar system there's 355 days during the year, unless it's a leap year, there's an extra 30 days. —Now Kabbalistically, certain days during the week, during the month during the years, there's a window of times that I can access Light from my surrounding Light, without necessary going through pressure and stress and chaos that can expand my Vessel and effect change in my life and reveal Light in my life that can be lasting. And I want to speak about some of these and of course you need to study maybe more depth in each one of them to learn how to use the tools. But let's start with a day, a cycle of a day 24 hours. So the Kabbalist knows that the morning, there's a window of the energy of Chesed, energy of mercy, energy of giving, the seed of the day. That is the time the Kabbalist will make a spiritual connection to use this opening. And we would use the Ana Beko'ach prayer which is the seven verses connecting to the seven levels of consciousness from Chesed to Malchut and it's a tool to help us to strengthen our consciousness from reactivity, unconditional love, thinking big, the power of true prosperity, the power of healing the power of overcoming the negative influence of the stars of the Zodiac. We'll use it every day in the morning. As well we'll use the power of the the Zohar, the Aramaic either reading or scanning, as a tool to help us get to Binah consciousness, which is part of the surrounding Light, that we can never by our self can reach there. It's connecting to energy of miracles, connecting to energy of overcoming issues and blockages and fears and even our regular Tikkun, process, reaching directly to the power of the surrounding Light and bringing that Light into our life. The most difficult time during the day is the afternoon.— You know, afternoon before —before the stars coming out, especially actually between sunset to the stars coming out, its more times of judgement, that the time a person need to be more careful about his consciousness. A window of time is from midnight until dawn. Midnight is depending on the time of the year, daylight saving midnight start around 1 o'clock, depending on the time, or regular time is 12 o'clock. Dawn it changes in the summer dawn can be 3.30, 3.45 in the winter it can be 6 o'clock even. So these few hours if it's in the summer it can 4 hours or 3 1/2 hours in the winter it can be even 6 hours there a window of time. This is the time that the cosmos is the most open for meditation, for connection, for transformation, for creating change, for spreading Light for creating miracles in our life. This is the time a Kabbalist every day will make sure to be happy to stay up or awake in the middle of this time to make a connection. This is the time, when we read, use Zohar, use meditation, especially the Zohar.— That the time the effect is so much greater. It's as if Satan is actually shut down in that time. The Light is assisting us, the surrounding Light is available freely in this time. That's the hardest time to be up, that's how it works, usually most people sleeping in this time but that the time the opportunity to make connection. Especially if you want to work on yourself on something on your Tikkun. Especially if you want to pray for someone.— — There's a brain surgeon that tried it used to do like 400 surgeries a year, and when he started to use Zohar for his patients in the middle of the night before dawn he saw major results and miracles the next day. These are the tools, it's a window of time without necessarily people know about it. But that's an amazing time to connect to shift. Most of the books the the Rav wrote, the Rav wrote after midnight before dawn. That the time the Kabbalist meditating to bring peace, into the entire world. —That's as far as the day. As far as the week we know Shabbat is from Friday night until Saturday night, some of you have been introduced some of you not, but it's twenty five hours from sundown Friday night to stars coming out Saturday night there's a book of Yehuda Berg about Shabbath that actually this is the time that our soul can be recharged. The rules of the games during these 25 hours is different of the rest of the days of the week. If during the days of the week, the only way to connect with the Light of the Creator, is only by fighting Satan fighting negativity, earning. In these days if we choose to be to part of that our souls can be elevated naturally to a place of Light. Of course there are different tools to use, theres even streaming of Shabbat from different centres all over the world that people can connect and maybe you will study more about it but it's aider in our future, another major tool to take advantage.— As a window in time, I can access huge Light, and, the Klipah around my inner Light, is not blocking actually. Month, we know once a month, there the new moon, what is the new moon. It's the seed of the month. And as we learn in our body, there's body and soul —you know, the, the, the limited part, the Satan part, the unlimited part, the Light force in us. The same way the stars, the Zodiac, the different influences in our lives, as body and soul. The soul is the positive influence of the month, the body is the negative influence of the month. That's what's astrology, there's positive influence, and negative influence. In the new moon, the beginning of the Lunar month, —in that day, we have access to the positivity of the month and we can plant the seed, that we can connect to the positivity of the month and reject the negativity of the month. That's the reason all over the world all the centres enter streaming, there's New Moon event it's 24 hours or 48 hours depending which month, which we can access the positivity of the month, in a seed level. For example if you take the month of Cancer, the negativity of the month is uncertainty, fear the positivity of the month is the month that has healing in it. That has the power of injecting certainty in it. We can choose to access it. If you have the power of Aries, the negativity is selfishness, the positivity is pioneering, thinking big, unlimited. So each month has positivity, negativity. In the new moon there is a window of opportunity to access the positivity and as a result have more control, is tools to control my month. — There's holidays Kabbalistically, which have them plugging to that right, and planting the seed, not just for a week, for a day, for a month, for a whole year. — And each holiday has its own consciousness, for example Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur which is one package, which always will fall in the first day day of the month of Libra, Rosh Hashanah, in the Lunar calendar. This is the time that the entire world's destiny is being determined. This is the time that based on the negative or positive action of I've done last year my next year destiny's will be determined. Based on the rules of bread of shame, a person has to received based on his effort and not just all the negativity will be buried and everything is okay. We don't want bread of shame. We want to get based on our merits. — In Rosh Hashanah this technology's 48 hours and always we have international collective event, that during that time we have ability to use tools to erase from the cosmos computer negativity that we've created in the past and as a result effect change in my destiny in the future, the personal destiny and the collective destiny. It's not a holiday we celebrate its technology to effect change in my physical destiny for one year. During Rosh Hashanah — the destiny that is determined is my physical destiny, life or death, livelihood, health prosperity. In Passover which is around the month of Aries, the full moon always will fall in the full moon in month of Aries, every year. This is the time that the cosmos is open to effect my spiritual destiny. —If Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is more about the physical physicality, the quantity of my life. In Passover, is the destiny of the quality of my life, my level of freedom, of joy of happiness, actually this is the seed of being determined how much I'll be able to fight Satan, during the course of the entire year. When it speaks about celebrating coming out of Egypt. The Kabbalists explain it's not about our physical Egypt it's coming out of our personal Egypt, our fears, our ego, our laziness, our Tikkun all the addictions that we have. This is the opportunity that is open during Passover. This is the blessing that we have.— There's many other holidays, but I just wanted to open the door, to realize, there are windows of opportunities beside being a good guy and working on my Tikkun. That I'm able to access the surrounding Light to break through the walls of my soul, Klipot, to allow me to go to the next level, which is essential practice in Kabbalah. Beside the day to day work on myself, taking advantage from the windows of opportunities available in the cosmos. So what have we learned today - it's constant struggle between my inner Light and surrounding Light. Satan wants me to stay shrinked, limited, part of all the theme of what we learned since the beginning of the course lasting change, lasting improvement, expanding Vessel. If I want to really go to my next level of blessings I need to go to my next level of expanding my Vessels. — In expanding my Vessel, expanding my sharing ability, expanding my restriction, my certainty beyond logic. There's two ways to go about it, one way is to stress, pressure comes my way, is the way the Light is knocking on my door, telling me I want to give you more don't worry, expand it, embrace it, surrender. The other way look for opportunity to expand my Vessel, proactively, listen to my gut feeling. Open my ears and my eyes with the consciousness I want to expand, even though it looks like I'm not painful. Satan will paint a dark picture when it comes to change it's too difficult, I'm afraid, I'm weak, I will not be able to do it, and what's it going to be then. It has to be, it's part of the test, and the answer to all of those: Just jump, don't think too much. Because procrastinating and thinking, will make me eventually believe the small Vessel. Justify why I'm staying small justify why it's not the right thing to do now, it's not the logical thing to do and of course use it, the Kabbalistic tools, learning about days of power. Learning about certain times actually the cosmos open, that the Kilpot is not disturb me to access the surrounding Light. That's another huge way to expand my Vessel.— Sit with yourself, with a friend, with a teacher, what do I need to do in order to go from 3 to 4. In what areas in my life, I know I need to go to the next level but I'm too afraid. I'm waiting too long. I'm procrastinating, but I'm afraid. It's part of the package, since expanding my Vessel is injecting certainty beyond logic, the tool to help me inject certainty is the fear. And the fear will be very real but it's part of the tools to help me grow. Have a great day, thank you very much.
