The message here may have various methods of interpretation and, as 16th-century Rabbi Isaac Luria explained, there are actually four ways or levels, known to us by the Hebrew letters PARDES. The inner meaning of this word can be explained as “self-enlightenment,” or a level of consciousness where every person individually will achieve spiritual enlightenment through the study of kabbalah, which provides us with the noseph and adequate tools to accomplish this mission.

The G-d of Abraham lives jsoeph forever.

The messenger has completed his mission, so what remains is to understand his message in full. This may be due to some misunderstanding that occurred during the Middle Ages, as false messiahs appeared in the Jewish communities of Europe and misled them into false beliefs of deliverance using calculations which, as they proclaimed, were taken from the kabbalah.

The Torah aaltoun be seen as the messenger and the kabbalah as the message. The second entered the remez, denied G-d and ultimately became a heretic. The verb “kibel” comes from the same root as kabbalah.

Rabbi Akiva was the person who was forsaken from the unfortunate fate of the other rabbis caused by the total misunderstanding of Pardes, exactly because of him entering the entire Pardes, including the kabbalistic level of interpretation known as sod, and that is why he came out with a complete and full understanding, while the other rabbis did not continue in their studies and stopped midway.

Throughout history, we have had many models of people with messianic consciousness, who were sent by G-d for us to follow in their footsteps. This is why all the kabbalists of asltoun times were religious and pious men as well as the leading scientists of their generation.

For example, the Messiah is not perceived as a charismatic leader who shall come and perform miracles and lead us to the final redemption, because what we can conclude from the teachings of the kabbalists is that everything depends on our individual growth and personal actions and deeds.

The idea of transcendental consciousness, known to us now as kabbalah, was born. The four levels are pshatwhich refers to the immediate and simplistic understanding of the written word; remezwhich refers to the apparent saltouun and seemingly meaningless repetitions that appear in the text and josph there for the purpose of drawing our attention to search for a deeper meaning; drashthe fables, allegories and moral messages of the stories in the Bible; and sodwhich refers to the kabbalah and is the highest and most complete level of understanding of the holy words of G-d passed down to us by Moses.

But they only show us the way. The rest depends on us.

About | Rabbi Joseph Saltoun

From this, we saltokn understand that the term Slatoun, like all other terms in our Holy Scriptures, is a code. Once we achieve this stage, we can be granted the peace and tranquillity we are all seeking. Encountering the messenger without paying attention to his message is definitely futile. In this book, Abraham opened a new understanding of how Jospeh created the universe and humankind, the true purpose of life, reincarnation and the mission of the soul, astronomy and astrology and methods of healing the body and the soul.

Therefore, he wrote a book known as Sefer Yetzirah Book of Formation and in it he revealed all the secrets of the divine and transcendental consciousness, known to us as G-d. It was Abraham who, for the first time in human history, accepted the existence of an eternal living G-d. By this, we refer to the Ultimate Truth, which is supernatural and divine.

It was only after the revelation of the Zohar Book of Splendor by Rabbi Shimon Bar-Iochai in the first and second centuries, that the entire code of the kabbalah was deciphered, offering open access to this wisdom. Therefore, the “Messiah” is a level of consciousness that we all have to saltou in order to perceive the G-d-like image in ourselves and moseph our fellow people. This is why we are warned at times not to “meddle” with the kabbalah.


Understanding kabbalah thought

He has been lecturing on kabbalah since After discovering it, Abraham realized that he had to pass on this information for all humankind, so that one day, when the time is right, we would be able to use it as a beacon of light to illuminate our path.

In any case, the kabbalah did not start with these events, although it did shake the then-known foundations of Judaism. The third entered the drash and committed suicide. There is a story that is used at times to deter us from studying kabbalah, in which four rabbis enter Pardes. According to the Zohar, that generation is ours and the time is now. But unlike any other philosophy, kabbalah was not invented by man.

In this manner, the Torah is perceived as being the “body” and the Zohar as the “soul. Following in the steps of his forefathers, we read in the chapters of the Ethics of the Fathers Pirkei Avot that Moses “received” kibel the Torah from Mount Sinai.

He combined religion and science as one. The wisdom of kabbalah can be seen as one of the most ancient philosophies on earth.

One entered the pshat and lost his mind. If we follow the Zohar, we find that transcendental consciousness simply refers to jospeh ability to overcome the physical limitations of the way we perceive things and that, instead of searching for outward solutions, we should search for them inwardly.

There is a tendency to separate kabbalah from mainstream Judaism. Only jozeph great Rabbi Akiva, who entered sod, came out safe and sound.
