Removing the Curtains

Topic: Astrology | Posted:July 29, 2011

We are about to enter the month of Leo and before us await tremendous opportunities for more growth and fulfillment, both personally and globally. We can achieve this by being less consumed with our pain and more concerned with the pain of others. When we see other people going through difficulty, we need to feel it as if it is our own.

This might sound simple and familiar but it is neither. The sages explain to us that feeling another's pain is not to be done in order to be deemed good or spiritual. Paradoxically, it is taught that it should be done for selfish reasons. Every time we put ourselves in someone else's shoes, the effort we make at feeling their pain removes an illusionary curtain that separates us from them.

This process mirrors our connection with the Light - the closer we come to feeling the people around us, the closer we can get to the Light.

The great 20th century Kabbalist, and founder of The Kabbalah Centre, Rav Yehuda Ashlag, taught that if a person takes part in the joy and pain of the world, only then will he partake in the ultimate joy and removal of chaos from the entire world. But if we divorce ourselves from this consciousness, we are divorcing ourselves from the Light of the Creator.

To help us pierce through these curtains, we have the opportunity to connect with energy and support of two great Kabbalists. Joseph the Righteous helps us connect with all forms of prosperity, abundance and fulfilling all of our true needs and the Ari, Rav Isaac Luria, whose teachings contain all of the secrets of creation, reincarnation and more. Join us for live streams of studies and celebrations followed by special question and answer sessions.

Blessings and Light,

Michael Berg
