Wednesday Nissan 23, Issru chag 5703, 8th day of the Omer ** Torah Lessons
Chumash: Acharei Mot, Revi'i with Rashi.
Tanya: Now, therefore (p. 223)...the Esoteric Discipline). (p. 225).
The presence of Mashiach is revealed on Acharon Shel Pesach, and this revelation has relevance to all Israel:
In general the mood of Pesach is one of liberty.
Then Pesach ends, and we find ourselves tumbling headlong into the outside world. This is where Mashiach's revealed presence comes into play - imbuing us with a powerful resoluteness that enables us to maintain ourselves in the world.
- (Back to text) Shir HaShirim 2:8. Midrash Raba on that verse describes the Exodus as Medaleg, "skipping over" calculations and rationales for redemption, bringing Israel out of exile regardless of their merit, regardless of the length of the exile. Later in that section the Midrash applies the verse to Mashiach.
- (Back to text) Sh'mot 12:42, as Rashi notes, the night destined for redemption.
Gevurah - discipline and measure - concentrates and directs our efforts, our love in the proper directions. Another aspect of gevurah is - respect and awe. Healthy love requires respect for the one you love.
Chesed of gevurah is the love in discipline; awareness of the intrinsic love that feeds discipline and judgement. It is the recognition that your personal discipline and the discipline you expect of others is only an expression of love. And that comes across when disciplining. It is the understanding that we have no right to judge others; we have a right only to love them and that includes wanting them to be their best.
Ask yourself: when I judge and criticize another is it in any way tinged with any of my own contempt and irritation? Is there any hidden satisfaction in his failure? Or is it only out of love for the other?
Exercise for the day: Before you criticize someone today think twice if it is out of care and love.From:A Spiritual Guide to the counting of the OmerForty-Nine Steps to Personal RefinementThe Forty-Nine Days of Sefirahby Simon Jacobson$7.95 Soft Cover
