  • 9. PREPARATION
    • Isolate . . . Yourself from the illusions of past and future. Past and future do not actually exist. All that exists is the continuum of NOW. Underlying the ever-present NOW is the eternal presence of Hashem. Hashem is the true existence. Everything in comparison to Hashem is as if it does not exist at all. Settle into the ever-present NOW and ponder the eternal presence of Hashem.
  • 10. Preparation (continued)
    • Fixate . . . On the continuous unfolding of creation. Perceive every detail in every moment as part of Hashem’s plan to prepare the creation to delight in the ecstasy of his happiness.
  • 11. Preparation (continued)
    • Meditate . . . On the pleasantness of Hashem, on your desire to experience and express the Divine, on your resolve to do your part to prepare the world for the revealation of infinite joy and happiness.
  • 12. Preparation (continued)
    • Awaken . . . The altruistic desires within your soul to serve Hashem for the sake of his satisfaction and for the benefit of creation.
  • 13. Preparation (continued)
    • Express . . . The Divine will through your will. Identify with Hashem’s passion to share His happiness with the creation.
  • 14. PERCEPTION - Light of the Sun
    • ACKNOWLEDGE . . . The tenuous state of creation: We exist only by virtue of Hashem masking the revelation of His Divine infinite light
    • A Metaphor: An overcast sky obscures the sun. A shaft of light streams through a break in the clouds. The shaft of light exists only by virtue of the clouds holding back the bulk of the sun’s radiance. Similarly, we exist only as an effect of Hashem masking the revelation of the Ohr Ain Sof, His Divine radiance. However, unlike a shaft of sunlight, we remain forever within our source, within the midst of the all-encompassing Divine iight. Yet, miraculously Hashem masks the revelation.
  • 15. PERCEPTION - Light of the Sun
    • PERCEIVE . . .darkness and negativity as blindingly bright manifestations of Divine light. Through this faith, we acclimate ourselves to the light’s intensity, and gain the strength to openly perceive the light.
    • Out of love for us, Hashem is giving us the opportunity to participate in preparing ourselves and the creation for the revelation of His infinite light. Through mitzvot, we infuse the creation with the power of the Divine happiness, the pure essence of Hashem that transcends the Ohr Ain Sof. This Power of Essence transforms the creation into a state of being wherein it can enjoy the revelation of the Divine infinite light. The extent to which the creation is transformed and prepared to enjoy this revelation is a direct effect of our faith and joy in the face of darkness and negativity, and the purity of our intent in our performance of mitzvot.
  • 16. PERCEPTION - Light of the Sun
    • MEDITATE . . . On the fact that Hashem is continuously orchestrating the creation in such a way as to give us the opportunity to take part in transforming this world into the garden of His delight. Perceive life as a manifestation of Divine love and light. Sense your desire to be a partner with Hashem in creation.
  • 17. PERCEPTION - Light of the Sun
    • INTEND. . . To please Hashem and benefit the creation through your joyous participation as a co-creator. Rejoice in every moment of life as the unfolding of Divine love and light. Be compelled by the passion of your soul to actuate the Divine happiness within the creation.
  • 18. PERCEPTION - Light of the Sun
    • IDENTIFY. . . With your Divine spark’s joy in pleasing Hashem and benefiting creation. Feel this joy compelling you to do your part to prepare yourself and the world to delight in the ecstasy of the Divine happiness.
