(5703)
Chumash: Emor, Shlishi with Rashi.
Tehillim: 35-38.
Tanya: In a manner (p. 241)...above at length. (p. 243).

Our sages said: "One should not take leave of his friend other than with a parting word of Torah-law, a D'var Halacha." [1]

Our forefathers, the saintly Rebbes, explained:

"The parting word should be the kind of Torah-teaching that transforms the listener into a Mehaleich.

`Progress,' Hiluch, means to rise from level to level, with one ascent after another.

Such progression embodies the superiority of the human soul over the angels, for this ascent is greatest through an act of goodness - extending a favor to another, a material favor in general, a spiritual favor in particular."

   

Notes:

  1. (Back to text) Halacha is related to Mehaleich,"one who progresses."


Day seven of week 3

Malchut of tiferet

Examine the dignity of your compassion. For compassion to be complete (and enhance the other six aspects of compassion) it must recognize and appreciate individual sovereignty. It should boost self-esteem and cultivate human dignity. Both your own dignity and the dignity of the one benefiting from your compassion. Is my compassion expressed in a dignified manner? Do I manifest and emphasize majesty in my compassion? Does it elicit dignity in others? Do I recognize the fact that when I experience compassion as dignified it will reflect reciprocally in the one who receives compassion?

Exercise for the day: Rather than just giving them charity help them help themselves in a fashion that strengthens their dignity.
