|About the Book|
Kabbalah explains that the Bible is neither just a book of stories to be taken literally nor an historical archive of events. Although these occurrences took place thousands of years ago, there are relevant spiritual truths hidden within each tale for us to learn from and apply in our lives today. In the four-volume set of What God Meant , Kabbalah scholar and teacher Michael Berg addresses contemporary challenges in a manner that affirms, even in the worst situations, that there is goodness and opportunity. In Leviticus he explains we have a choice, which is either woe: the life of continuing chaos, or praiseworthy: transform ourselves to become a vessel of endless bliss. Through the portions presented here, we are given many examples on how to attain this Messiah consciousness. In Numbers , we learn the consequence of actions through depictions of the 42 journeys the Israelites made through the wilderness before reaching the land of Israel. We understand we can choose to lengthen our karmic process by continuing our current chaos, or we can attune to the Light and complete our karma in the blink of an eye.
