Diminishing Our Ego

Portion of Shlach Lecha: May 26 - June 1, 2002
English Zohar: Vol 18, Ch.210

This section of the Zohar is clear. The more a person diminishes his ego the greater his connection to the supernal worlds, the greater his connection to the Creator. There is almost no greater barrier between the Creator and us than our ever-growing ego. As we read this section we awaken this awareness in our mind and awaken our soul to assist us in this process, thereby strengthening our connection to the Light of the Creator.

Blessings and Light,
R. Michael Berg

210. Oh, Rabbi. Oh, Rabbi. How new are these matters of the head of the Yeshivah. Praised is he who lowers himself in this world. How great and lofty is he in that world. That is how the head of the Yeshivah began: Whoever is small is great. Whoever is great is small. And it is written: "And Sarah was a hundred year and twenty year and seven years old: these were the years of Sarah's life" (Beresheet 23:1). "Hundred," since it is a large number is written with "year," the least number of years, it was diminished to one. "seven," that is a small number, he increased and made it bigger, by writing "seven years," IN PLURAL. Come and see that the Holy One, blessed be He, made one great only if he had belittled himself. And THE HOLY ONE, BLESSED BE HE, belittled only he who is haughty. Praised is the one that humiliates himself in this world. How exultingly great is he in his ascension in that world.
