Devar TORAH: Tazria (she bears seed)
Scripture: Leviticus 12:1-13:59
Mishkan David: Holy of Holies (bestowal)
In this as well as previous devar TORAHS we see YAH Echad bestowing His love upon us to the point that we, the nation of Israel, cannot/will not understand. We have looked for LOVE in the system of the ego instead of seeing the great love of our Creator from the very beginning. “In the beginning Echad created – man of the dust of the ground and blew Himself into him.” Echad is LOVE!!!
The commandments given first to Avraham (leave everything), his children, grandchildren (shall become a great nation), deliverance of the Nation of Israel from Egyptian captivity, was LOVE. Even the Commandments given in Bereshith (Genesis), Shemot (Exodus) and now Vayikra (Leviticus) are His LOVE.
I was brought up in Christianity and was taught we didn’t/couldn’t do the commands given by Echad without the help/intercession of his son. I wasn’t taught (didn’t teach) that I am a daughter of Echad equipped with everything necessary to love and obey God’s/Echad’s commands.
This devar TORAH and ones before/after it tells me in no uncertain terms that all I have to do is receive Echad’s LOVE. Like a parent protecting His child He gives what I call “can’t you don’ts.” LOVE!!!
The first command – Love Echad with all your heart, mind, soul and strength and 2nd your neighbor as yourself – conveys the obedience that we are to give to Echad, the LOVE He wants/desires and deserves.
In the last devar TORAH, this one and the next one, He (Echad) gets specific about His bestowal of LOVE to us. He tells us how to take care of the bestowal of His physical Presence in the earthen realm. Because of my/the teaching in this realm, the bestowal of immortality in the physical forms that Echad has created for us has not been received.
My/Our Teacher, Rebbe Moshe ben Avraham teaches me/us to choose life and then bestow this knowledge, existence and bliss to others! In Devarim (Deuteronomy) 30:11-20 Echad says “choose life! For He is our life!” How? Follow His LOVE bestowal on our physical forms (knowledge of commandments in outer court) our hearts (inner court knowledge of our oneness with Him) and immortality (bliss of knowing we live forever). Then we bestow this LOVE (knowledge, existence and bliss) on others. Please read/study TORAH in order to receive YAH Echad’s love bestowal to us and then share it with others!!! Baruch YAH Echad!!! To be continued!!!
