Thursday, May 24, 2018 – 10 Sivan 5778

Naso: Numbers 4:21 – 7:89

The Lord gives instructions to maintain and restore holiness, here regarding adultery and the ordeals of jealousy.

From the moment you entered this world, you were given a light to carry, which increased or diminished according to your thoughts, words, and actions.  In acknowledging your wrongs and mistakes, you arrive at unconditional acceptance of yourself and your changeability.  (Compassion, p. 141)

Friday, May 25, 2018 – 11 Sivan 5778

Naso: Numbers 4:21 – 7:89

Here are the rituals for the nazarite, the one who takes vows of abstinence to be set apart for the Lord. 

Self-denial is frowned upon in Mystical Judaism.  Your journey to God is a journey of wholeness and joy, not ascetic abstinence.  (Strength, p. 148)

Saturday, May 26, 2018 – 12 Sivan 5778

Naso: Numbers 4:21 – 7:89

The Lord gives Moses the sacred words for Aaron to bless the people of Israel, the Birkat Kohanim.

God will bless you and watch over you.
God’s face will shine upon you and shower you with grace and dignity.
And when you lift your face to touch the face of God, you will be at peace.
And God said, “Put my Name on the people of Israel, and I will bless them.”

Sunday, May 27, 2018 – 13 Sivan 5778

Beha’alotcha: Numbers 8:1 – 12:16

The Lord speaks to Moses, to instruct Aaron regarding the lighting of the lampstand.

The inner light of God is kindled and rekindled in you with the assistance of prayer.  Prayer, in each of its forms, transmits energy.  That energy can emanate in the recitation of liturgy, in the articulation of your own language, in the silence of meditation, and in the many other ways in which you empty, open, and receive the inner light of God.  (Harmony, p. 195)

Monday, May 28, 2018 – 14 Sivan 5778

Beha’alotcha: Numbers 8:1 – 12:16

Moses and Aaron assemble the Levites, purify them, and consecrate them to serve the Lord.

Selfless service has less to do with the self than with service.  It is giving of yourself fully.  It is serving others for the sole purpose of serving God, by extending godliness and goodness into the world.  Rather than seek self-aggrandizement and praise, you receive fulfillment in serving others unconditionally.  (Compassion, p. 131)

Tuesday, May 29, 2018 – 15 Sivan 5778

Beha’alotcha: Numbers 8:1 – 12:16

The Lord speaks to Moses, saying “This is the rule for the Levites.  From 25 years of age, they shall participate in the work force in the service of the Tent of Meeting.”

When you serve God through God’s compassion, you empower yourself with greater strength, elevate your mind with higher thoughts, and soar with the angels.  That is what is called “complete service.” – Baal Shem Tov, (Strength, p. 143)

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 – 16 Sivan 5778

Beha’alotcha: Numbers 8:1 – 12:16

In the second year after the exodus from Egypt, on the 20th day of the second month, the Israelites set forth from Sinai.

Receive the insights that will help you to clear your mind, open your spirit, and walk gently through the boundaries of who you have been, in order to become all you can possibly be.  (Intention, p. 33)
