Zohar Ki Tisa
Continued from previous DZ
Our generation has the consciousness and dependency on the material and tangibles of this world. This is the aspect of the sin of the Golden Calf. People feel secure and comfortable when they have enough money in the bank and a big house. This comfortable feeling holds only until they realize that the true power is not related to muscles or money.
All the wealth of the world cannot give a person guaranteed health. They may have a personal chef that matches a special diet to their personal physics but cancer and accidents are not something that they can avoid. Some of them are so lonely in their hearts that only the pursuit of more wealth and control satisfies them.
The billionaires of the world get sick and old like all people. Sooner or later they reach the end of their temporary existence.
The greed of the richest people of the world darkens their souls and puts them on the level of Pharaoh that controlled the material world. There is no government in the world that doesn’t answer to at least one of these Pharaohs. They make them and destroy them.
Money moves the world and at the same time it corrupts the world.
Deuteronomy 16:19 “Money blinds the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.”
-The 85 Richest People In The World Have As Much Wealth As The 3.5 Billion Poorest.
Almost half of the world’s wealth is now owned by just one percent of the population.
-The wealth of the one percent richest people in the world amounts to $110 trillion. That’s 65 times the total wealth of the bottom half of the world’s population.
-The bottom half of the world’s population owns the same as the richest 85 people in the world.
-The Pharaohs of the world are the multi billionaires that continue accumulating money by any means they can.
All the honest millionaires should pray that they won’t fall prey to these giants and be swallowed by them. The middle class in the world is already in the process of losing their material stability. Even those with few hundred millions could be gone tomorrow.
They control the world’s economy, health and education. They manipulate the world to serve their needs to exercise power.
There is a hidden war between the Pharaohs of the west and the Pharaohs of the east (China). We pray that Mashaich will come before they go for the kill of each other. In 2010 China put their own Golden Calf in the finance district of Shanghai. It is a bigger and younger version of the charging bull of Wall Street.
Only the Zohar keeps our distance from the black hole of the Pharaohs. They cannot swallow us when we have the Zohar and Rabbi Shimon with us.
We are not falling for the gold and we are waiting for Moses. He promised us in the Zohar that we will merit the Redemption.
The portion of Ki Tissa is about elevation of the Israelites through the use of Half a Shekel, overcoming the desire for the self and breaking the illusion, which is the lesson of the Golden Calf, and having the ultimate protection.
The Haftara of Ki Tissa is very much related to this commentary and B”H I will be able to have the time and explain it in the next DZ
We know that Gold is left column and the expression of the desire for the self.
