00:00 – Review of this Torah up until Paragraph 3.
06:42 – PARAGRAPH 3.
אשרי תמימי דרך ההולכים בתורת ה’ (תהלים קי”ט)
Effective tefilah (prayer) depends on searching for the intelligence in all things. חן chein (grace) results from focusing on this hidden light. Hashem’s Name אהיה אשר אהיה Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh (I will become what I will become – Keser) initiates the creative process of תשובה (return to Hashem). Free will is the “Crown of Creation”.
Rabbah bar bar Chanah said: “This wave that can sink a boat looks as if it’s crowned by a spark of white flame – we strike it with a staff engraved with [the words] Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh.”
