Daily Kabbalah Tip

Advice in the daily Kabbalah lesson is recommended, practical tasks for advancing spiritually

 

Intention of Prayer      

The main thing is to prepare the heart for the lesson, to arrive with the correct intention.

Prayer is what the heart feels, the desire. I want to correctly use the force that is hidden in The Zohar, in reading together. I need to prepare the heart so that it wants something else. Thus it is worthwhile to prepare ourselves for the correct deficiency and to bring it with us to the reading of The Zohar

To just sit without a desire shouldn't happen. The desire has to be ready because we can't determine it. And because we are in a group, and through the group we reinforce our prayer, it turns out that if a person is in a group and thinks about an intention that is not correct, then he is against the group.

All of our work is in preparation for the lesson and when we arrive at the lesson it is very hard to change anything since the heart of the person already arrives ready for something. Thus it is desirable to worry about what I am thinking when I go to sleep and how I will awaken and prepare myself for the lesson. These minutes are very, very important. It is also possible to prepare myself physically, maybe to do a little exercise to circulate the blood and thus I will be alert. But the main thing is to prepare the heart.

Self Participation  

What is "self participation" in the process of advancement of the Creation?

In the wisdom of Kabbalah we learn that the desire to receive that the Creator created evolves according to the plan of creation by the bestowal of the Upper Light that constantly operates it. The desire to receive goes through all kinds of states under this influence until a special state is discovered in it that is called, "self participation." The "self participation" that is revealed is that he can accompany his participation either by agreeing or not agreeing.

This is to say the development continues to be managed according to the plan that was already determined in advance, but that a person reaches a state where in his hands there is the conscious ability to agree or not with the plan. In order to agree with the Providence, with the Light, he needs to perform many actions, that are not so easy or  very pleasant, of increasing the importance of the Light that developed him and consciousness in His greatness as "the Director."
