Counting Up: Part 1

In this month's interview, Caz and AnaRina discuss the spiritual aspects of the Omer count and how we can calibrate and plug ourselves into G-d's System of Governance.

Segment 1:
* Torah teaches us how to plug into G-d's System of Governance
* What and why are we counting? Lev 23:15
* Omer count coincides exactly with the Journey from Egypt to Mt Sinai
* Counting up - increase - connected with agricultural season of crops
* also a spiritual ascent from Egypt to Mt Sinai - like climbing Mt Everest - you have to slowly acclimatize
* G-d understand that we need to weaned and be nurtured back to spiritual life after the slavery in Egypt
* During the crossing of the Sea of Reeds Israel had a FULL revelation of G-d and His Plan and Purpose for the world but also for them as the Jewish People.
*After that they had to start "climbing" to reach a place where they could spiritually match that "vision" themselves and therefore receive the Torah

Segment 2:
* By looking INTO G-d's Word and AT His World we understand the principles by which He governs His world
* Pesach (ORDER/putting the elements together) => OMER (Calibrating and Tuning in) => Shavuot ("Broadcast" - receiving Torah)
*7 weeks of counting - every week connected to a spiritual value that forms part of G-d's system of Governance and forms the moral fiber
of our world
*SEFIROT/ Emanations:
1) Chesed - Loving-kindness -Avraham
2) Gevurah - Restraint/strength/boundaries - Yitzchak
3) Tiferet - Harmony/Balance/ Splendour - Yaakov
4) Netzach - Eternity/ Victory - Moshe
5) Hod - Matured Charismatic Beauty - Aharon
6) Yesod - Foundation - Yosef
7) Malchut - Kingship - David

*Malchut is the LOWEST emanation - and the only spiritual level that enters our world, causing G-d's flow to manifest and materialize into our world.

 

Counting Up: Part  3 and 4

In this month's interview, Caz and AnaRina discuss the spiritual aspects of the Omer count and how we can calibrate and plug ourselves into G-d's System of Governance.

Part 3:
*Omer - Microlevel calibration
* Difference between the month of Aviv and Nissan
* Time to read the Song of Solomon
** whole Torah encapsulated
** Songs of S speaks of G-d's love for the Jewish People
*Month of Iyar - Month of Healing - Ex 15:26
* Virus is part of the Time of Correction that we've entered into

Part 4:
"Shavuot" means Weeks
* Iyar is called Ziv in the Bible (1 Kings 6:1)
Important Dates:
* 5th of Iyar - Israel's Independence
* 14th of Iyar - Pesach Sheni - Second chances
* 20th of Iyar - First time Israel broke camp after being almost a year at Mt Sinai. The first time they moved within the Divine order of the tribes. This is a good day to ask G-d to position you within the dynamics of His Divine order
*25th of Iyar - Jerusalem Day
* We are counting to Shavuot - the giving of the Torah, G-d's Life instruction manual, His Wedding Day with His Bride - the Jewish People, and therefore also the wedding day
* Shavuot is also the Birthday and Yahrzeit of King David
