Foul Drop (Tipah Srucha) And Secrets Of The Torah
are "a foul drop" and the "secrets of the Torah" which we
need to reveal?
foul drop" is that same broken connection, that same separation, which man
discovers when he feels hatred to others. This is called the broken root of his
soul that he discovers-This is already a spiritual revelation because it is
directed toward others outside of him.
broken connections were not revealed before the breaking of the vessels and
this is why they are called "secrets of the Torah." The breaking of
the vessels created a preparation to the revelation of the "secrets of the
Torah" and they are revealed by the Light shining over the difficulties
and problems, beyond the feeling of separation from others. We should desire to
discover them-desire to discover and correct that gap, the same rift that is in
the breaking of the vessels, and this is done by the Light that Reforms which
is in the Torah.

Daily Kabbalah Tip
Advice in the daily Kabbalah lesson is recommended, practical tasks for advancing spiritually
we gather together, our intention must be that the Upper Light will unite between
should we be prepared for a new awakening and the strength of so many people in
We must be concerned that all the people
who are now awakening will understand that the unity between us builds a new
reality of connection between people, and that from this unity, all of us will
begin to feel the new reality. We don't connect in order to be "good
children," i.e., not to fight with each other, but rather from the desire
to rise above this world and discover the spiritual Kli (vessel). We are not speaking about good relationships with
each other. We aren't building Communism or Kibbutzim. The wisdom of Kabbalah
doesn't exist for this. We are not looking for nice corporeal relationships,
but we do want to discover spiritual relationships between us, which is
fundamentally a completely different purpose.
The wisdom of Kabbalah tells us not to look
for a connection on the level of this world. The connection, from the
beginning, needs to be in order to build spiritual relations between us, in
order to discover the Creator between us. And that's the way it will take
place. The connection can't be made through efforts to behave nicely to others.
We gather together because we must attract the Light that Reforms, that dwells
between us. And the illumination will do the work and will build the spiritual
vessels between us, and in these Kelim we will feel the reality of the Creator. We don't yearn to build a good and
nice life, here in this world, on the face of the earth. Our purpose is
something more lofty.
If we reach inner, spiritual harmony, then
of course we will feel completeness also in this world. But this can happen
only on condition that we invite the Upper Light to take care of the connection
between us, and don't try to act nicely by ourselves. Thus, when we gather
together, we must have the intention that the Upper Light will unite us and not
that we want to be together. Pay attention to the difference! I don't want to
connect to you, but I want the Upper Light to connect between us. Without the
Upper Light, I don't want to connect, since that would be a lie.
