Bayom Hashimini – 5740

NAMES

The Baal Shem Tov says, that the Hebrew name of something is both the source of its existence, as well it’s continued life-force.

GOD’S OBJECTIVE

The main objective of God in the giving of the Torah is that man should serve on his own initiative.

LUCHOIS

The first Luchois represents the service of Tzaddikim, while the second represents the service of Baal Teshuva.

BAAL TESHUVA

The service of Baal Teshuva is far greater than that of the Tzaddikim.

MATAN TORAH / AVROHOM

Matan Torah in actual fact begins with Avrohom.

REVELATION VS. AVODA / SELF REFINEMENT

Revelation cuases that momentarily our essential self dominates, but AVODA, Baal Teshuva, self-refinement causes, that our conscious self, transforms.

JEW

The natural desire of a Jew is to fulfill the will of God.

GOD’S INTENT

God’s intent in creation is quite simply, “it is the nature of good to do so.”

GOD’S TRUEST INTENT

The truest intent of God is to give us the opportunity, through our subjugation of our Yetzer Hara / evil inclinations, to fulfill a higher intent, thereby manifesting the infinite radiance / Messianic era.

BAAL TESHUVA

The Baal Teshuva, not only has the Merit of Mitzvahs, but the even infinitely higher, of the transformation of Darkness to light.

MOSHIACH’S TORAH

The Torah of Moshiach will be infinite.

MOSHIACH / BAAL TESHUVA

Moshiach comes in the Merit of (Baal) Teshuva.

DECIPHERING / TALMYD BAVLI

The reason Talmud Bavli supersedes Talmud Yerushalmi, is because of the pilpul / analytic debates to decipher the law, its conclusions are more accurate.

TRUTH

Through truly Desiring the truth, Hashem reveals it.

DECIPHERING / DIVINE WILL

The Rebbe teaches, that through the analytical probing of the Divine will, as in the Talmud Bavli, hence reaching the correct resolution, which then in turn creates the correct action, this then in turn manifests the Divine intent.

MOSHIACH / MITZVOS

The complete fulfillment of doing Mitzvos will be when Moshiach comes.

DRIVE / MEDITATION

Through this understanding (namely that our current performance lacks) this cuases additional drive.

DRIVE / BAAL TESHUVA

This is similar, as it states in Tanya, that as the Baal Teshuva feels distant (from God) therefore he seeks.

DIVINE REACTION

The very depth of feeling that drives you to God, creates this reaction.

MESSIANIC LIGHT

The greatness of the Messianic era is that it Infinitely surpasses even the light at the beginning of creation.

MESSIANIC LIGHT

This greatness will be also greater than the Matan Torah Revelation.

MOSHIACH’S WORLD

When Moshiach comes, the physical world will, like a fig, which absentenmindely is being picked on Shabbos – will say, “Today is Shabbos!”

TORAH & MITZVOS

Through Torah and Mitzvos we transform this world.

SHEMINI ATZERES

On Shemini Atzeres a Jew becomes a master of destiny.
