Important lessons from the portion of Korach
There are many lessons to learn from the portion of Korach. One important lesson is to have personal responsibility for our actions. We can not follow anyone blindly. The earth swallowed Korach together with his followers. They weren’t spared because of the mistake of their rich and powerful leader.
Study and ask your rabbi or teacher all the questions that will make your heart and mind one with the Light. You may give them your tithe but you can not give them your soul. You have to ‘own’ the path to the Light and the ticket to the Final Redemption.
People are judged in the heavenly court individually and can not put the blame on the one they followed, claiming ignorance and idiocy.
The Zohar is Noah’s ark that will keep us safe when Mashiach comes to cleanse the world from negativity. If you own a complete Zohar set without studying it you may see the ship of protection leaving the port without you on board.
Another lesson is to understand that we can not use tools of higher spiritual levels without having the right vessel. Korach wanted priesthood when he didn’t have the vessel for it. He was rich and powerful but wanted more than his vessel could handle. Only Aaron and the priests could have access to the holy tools and the incense as we explained in previous DZ studies.
If we try making a connection that is not proper for our level then we bring judgment on ourselves, especially when we have selfish reasons.
“זִכָּרוֹן לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, לְמַעַן אֲשֶׁר לֹא-יִקְרַב אִישׁ זָר אֲשֶׁר לֹא מִזֶּרַע אַהֲרֹן הוּא, לְהַקְטִיר קְטֹרֶת, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה; וְלֹא-יִהְיֶה כְקֹרַח וְכַעֲדָתוֹ, כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר יְהוָה בְּיַד-מֹשֶׁה לוֹ.”
“as a reminder to the sons of Israel that no layman who is not of the descendants of Aaron should come near to burn incense before YHVH; so that he will not become like Korah and his company– just as YHVH had spoken to him through Moses.”
There are many people using spiritual tools, like names taken from the 72 names, for special purposes. This is wrong and may draw judgment to the person who uses them. There are very few ‘safe’ names that can be used but not many. It’s many times better to scan the entire 72 names for meditation but not to isolate individual names for use without spiritual purity spiritual authority. I know of people who opened themselves for serious judgments because of misuse or corrupted use of holy names.
Use of the Ana B’Koach without proper and pure consciousness is not good. It’s not a hocus pocus tool to produce miracles. It’s definitely a powerful connection tool to use in prayers and personal meditation but one must be pure in mind and heart to use and benefit from it.
Do not buy amulets online because the aspect of exchanging money for an item would attach to it the consciousness of making money. You may get something of spiritual value from a kabbalist who cares for you for protection and support but it should not come with a price. It will lower its level to a material item. Any name written on the amulet will lose its energy and may even turn to judgment.
The people that attacked Moses and Aaron, the righteous, brought immediate judgment on themselves because they came with judgment from the system of the Tree of Knowledge Good and Bad and death. We should never judge a person until we are on his level and even then, we should thread lightly (with the Light in mind).
We have many spiritual tools and the most important tool is the study of the Torah through the Zohar, as we do it on the Daily Zohar. Why? It’s not my ego. I follow the exact study method of the Zohar. You can see clearly the text of the Zohar the references to the Torah and Bible verses in almost every paragraph. The Zohar is full of secrets that elevate our souls to places where our prayers can be heard. The Zohar is the aspect of ‘inner’ as we studied in DZ 1852. It allows us to connect to the secrets of the Torah on a subconscious/soul level. It doesn’t matter if we understand the text or not. The Light of the Zohar will manifest in areas of our lives that are in most need. It will also help us to complete our Tikkun even if it doesn’t follow our selfish desires.
