Show Notes:Two States of Consciousness - Ebb & Flow/ Ratzo V'Shuv
The rhythm of life is comprised of Ratzo V'Shuv
Ezekiel Chapter 1: The angelic beings are running and they're returning
The heart contracts and then expands, the inhale and exhale of the breathWe often get stuck in wanting to be in one place but only when we embrace the value of the paradox can we actually begin to suck the marrow out of life and live every moment to its fullest. Rabbi YY's background growing up and being at the feet of the Lubavitcher Rebbe at a young age [7:34]
He memorized and transcribed many of the Rebbe's discourses
How he was able to memorize the discourses? Total suspension of any other mental noise. Tuning in completely to the words and the energy.If not now, when? — Hillel How to keep the relationship with a great leader pure?
"It's easy for people to lose their individuality and use the great leader as a substitute for developing themselves to their own maximum"There are leaders who create followers, but the greatest leaders create leaders — Rabbi Jonathan Sacks
You have to find your own relationship with God, with yourself, and realize you have a mission in this world that no one else can fulfill. You are an indispensable note in the divine symphony and the music, only your soul's violin can playHow to Apply and Personalize Great Ideas
Law about a Bull who domesticates other animals 3x... (Tractate Baba Kama)
"If you sell the bull or gift it to another person, the calculation start over again..."
We each have a bull in our own lives... This law tells us how to recover from addiction

The details are channels for vibration of the Divine Ebb & Flow. When it is stripped from the symphony it can be restrictive, so it's important to have the bird's eye view of Judaism, appreciate its full tapestry, the fusion between the revealed and the esoteric, the body and the soul. Then the details become the notes of a Balad
Approach it not from a judgmental way. It's an invitation that by playing these notes you can channel this energy through your pschye, your brain, your body, your home. Jewish Law is describing the spiritual science of the Universe.
How it applies to Kosher and not mixing meat and milk [46:15]
Graduate the judgmental model into a model of opportunity to be able to live a meaningful and productive lifeBalancing transcending things with doing the things according to Torah (or interpretations of what the Torah means)
Tanya chapter 31: Distinguishing between Atzmut (guilt, depression) and Merirut (remorse with a resolution for the future).You're not allowed to gossip about other people. You're also not allowed to gossip about yourself — Chofetz Chaim
