Emor:  Leviticus 21:1 – 24:23

Emor:  Leviticus 21:1 – 24:23

No stealing, no false dealing, no defrauding, no injustice…..

Your soul and another’s soul originated as sparks from the Divine soul.  When you diminish from the glory of another’s soul, you are diminishing from the glory of your own soul.  Have compassion on another as you would on yourself; see the glory, articulate the positive, and act with integrity.  (Glory, p. 259)

Bechukotai:  Leviticus 26:3 – 27:34

As you continue to meditate on remaining conscious, consider the many ways of maintaining and accessing equanimity in all parts of who you are, in the many facets of how you live……In the personal inner sanctuary of your body, you have all the parts necessary for touching God, nourishing your soul, maintaining a healthy, non-attached ego, and living a glorious life.  (Glory, p. 251)

Behar:  Leviticus 25:1 – 26:2
Bechukotai:  Leviticus 26:3 – 27:34

Enlarge the place of your tent,
stretch out the curtains of your dwelling – 
do not hold back;
Lengthen your tent ropes,

fasten your pegs.
For you will burst forth to the right
and to the left….
Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed….
For your spouse is God who made you-
God of hosts is God’s name.
Isaiah – 54:2-5
