This series of lessons will cover Rabbi Haim's teachings with the commentary Beit Lekhem Yehuda by Rabbi Yehuda Fatiyah.
The four worlds Abeya are explained. The ten dimensional realms of physical space are the ten sefirot of Asiyah. The Malkhut of Asiyah is this physical dimension.
There are four levels of life-force energy, (nefesh/qi), (NaRaNaH), and these correspond to the four forms of life, inanimate, vegetable, animal and man (DaTzHaM). These also correspond to the four forms of matter, fire, air, water and earth (ARM'A).
The human being is the microcosm of the macrocosm, all levels and worlds can be accessed through the human mind.
Discussion about parallel dimensions, how they are experienced, and how one travels there.
The need for the cultivation of sensitivity to higher, more subtler forms of life-force energy (nefesh).
