The two channels of spirituality are religion and Universal faith. Judaism is teaching Jews to accept the Torah from their prophet Moses. The Torah instructs Jews what is their obligation to surrender their will and their intellect to serve God in heaven. God is above the intellect to comprehend the creator of the universe. The Torah is the word of God given to the Jewish people by Moses. Through doing the commandments of the Torah including the learning of Torah, the Torah makes the Jewish people a nation.
Through the Torah a Jew gives all his heart, soul, and might (physical possessions) to God and the Torah which makes the Jewish people an eternal nation. The life of a Jew is for the sake of his nation. The achievement of perfection of the nation of Israel comes through nullification of the self for the sake of the nation. This means to marry and raise children who are the next generation keeping the Torah and its commandments, called Mitzvos. In order to achieve the goal of redemption of the Jewish people from exile requires complete devotion to this goal.
Faith the second channel of spirituality comes through the search to know your own essence to attach to your source in the eternal man. Through knowing yourself, your essence, you come closest to knowing God. The Kabballa reveals the source of man in Adam Kadmon, the primordial man. The way of the Kabballa is to know God through knowing Adam Kadmon by knowing yourself, man created in the image of God.
According to the Kabballa there are two channels of receiving blessings from above. Judaism attaches to the source of the Infinite One blessed be he, the creator of the universe. About this it says in Tikunei Zohar Petach Eliyahu God is the source of all sources, beginning of all beginnings, hidden of all hidden. Jews pray to God in heaven above unknown but revealed at Mount Sinai through the Torah. The Torah has two parts which are the laws and commandments called the Oral Torah, and the secret of the name of G-d of four letters which is the written Torah. The secret of the name of God is connected to Adam Kadmon. God and Adam Kadmon are one and united but God is not limited by Adam Kadmon.
In Judaism it is not necessary to know the secrets of the Torah to be part of Israel the nation of God. Some Jews have the inspiration to know the secrets of the Torah. To connect to Adam Kadmon is an inner connection which is Universal. Connecting to God through the Torah is the Jewish way. The Zohar reveals the two channels of faith. The Arizal Rabbi Isaac Luria revealed the secrets of the Torah which strengthen the Jewish people and their nation.
The Universal aspect of faith is connected to the Messiah the son Josef which is the connection to Adam Kadmon. This connection is connected to the letter Aleph the first letter of the Hebrew Alphabet. The word Anochi “I am” is the first word of the Ten Commandments. The letter Kaf of Anochi relates the crown of faith called Atik, Adam Kadmon. Anochi the letters which are translated as “I am” is connected to the infinite One unknown. In this word Anochi is revealed the two aspects of spirituality which are Universal faith and religion.
Judaism concentrates on the connection to God attained through the marriage of male and female, Adam and Eve. Self-knowledge connects to Adam alone, man or woman alone. In Judaism it is an obligation to marry to try to have children. Through the growth of the family unit of the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob Israel becomes a nation. The Torah is the life of the nation of Israel.
The children of the nation of Israel are even more important to Israel than the adults. The nation is sustained through the commandment to be fruitful and multiply, marrying the children according to family purity, and living according to Jewish law. Christianity and Yoga connect to God through Adam Kadmon. Judaism connects to God through the Torah principally the performance of the positive acts or mitzvos, Tefilin, Shabbat, holidays, and circumcism. The law supports family purity fertilizing the seed of the forefathers which is a gift to humanity.
In every generation Jews fall out of the way of Torah Judaism into the other channel of faith connecting to Adam Kadmon. In Judaism free choice is suppressed. In the other channel of spirituality, the goal of life is to find true freedom. Not everyone finds true freedom which is connected to Adam Kadmon. Most of mankind seeks freedom for their own personal physical desires. Jews which fall out of Judaism into secular life have the gift of the genes of their forefather which have been preserved and nurtured one of the important parts of the Law of Moses. These Jews become professionals in worldly life.
The main purpose of Judaism is to make Jewish souls, Jewish human beings to continue to be part of Judaism and Israel and not to assimilate. Worldly interests, and the pressures from other religions primarily Christianity cause assimilation. These pressures encourage Jews to become independent in the world and to leave their nation and religion. For this reason we see Jews in the spotlight in politics, medicine and high tech. The CEO of Pfizer and Moderna are Jewish people who have assimilated into modern life.
In the last generation of Judaism, the Lubavitcher Rebbe forced Judaism to incorporate the two channels of faith through his desire for the Messiah. The Zohar had already revealed the connection of Moses to Adam Kadmon and resurrection. Progressive Jewish Spirituality shows the intention of Moses to reveal his connection to Adam Kadmon through his resurrection. For this reason, he hid from the world the place of his burial but it is inscribed in the Torah that he died at the age of 120 years.
In the Zohar he is revealed as a living soul, when he teaches Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai the secrets of the Torah. Elijah in the Zohar is asked by Moses when in his grave to be resurrected. The resurrection of Moses now becomes part of the Universal Faith while Judaism continues to be a separate religion of a special nation with a special lineage in the world. Many students of the Lubavitcher Rebbe claim that he is the Messiah of the Jewish people and even deny his death.
Judaism is derived from the Universal faith of Abraham and Moses. Moses in his humility gave over his eternal kingship to Joshua his student. Jesus through his resurrection took the supernal crown which Moses surrendered at the sin of the Golden Calf. The Catholic Church became to be called the Universal Church. When Rome adopted Christianity as its religion Christianity could no longer be called the Universal faith. Islam then grabbed the opportunity to become an independent religion in opposition to Christianity. Christianity challenged Judaism since they both connected from two sides the Old Testament. Judaism was forced to accept two channels of faith and connect to Adam Kadmon through Chassidism.
In the seventh generation of Chabad Chassidism the Lubavitcher Rebbe was declared to be the Messiah of the Jewish people. His death was hard knock for traditional Judaism. The Lubavitcher Rebbe combined with the resurrection of Moses written in the Zohar proves to be the true Messiah of the Jewish people even though the holy temple has not been built. The name of God has been completed through the resurrection of Moses, Jesus and Mohammed a new trinity, and through the eternal life of the Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson the Jewish King the Messiah. Judaism continues to wait for the Messiah on one side of spirituality while it has become joined with World Faith connecting to Adam Kadmon and other faiths.
Corona virus is the great equalizer uniting the two sides of spirituality, a light which shines in the darkness of the Pandemic. Death hovers over the world. In God there is peace through receiving the Messiah or through belief in afterlife.
