Korah – The Korah Insurrection, Not the First, Not the Last. Kabbalists insights into the psychological influences of what motivated the Korah Insurrection. Rabbi Abuhatzera uses the kabbalistic metaphors of the Ari'zal describing the sparks (influences) of the souls of Kayin and Abel (the sons of Adam). Most human souls emanate from these sources. This is a metaphor to say that we are all subject to certain psychological influences, represented by Kayin and Abel. Kayin and Abel both have good sides and bad sides. Korah was the bad side of Abel. Moses was the good side of Abel. Then Korah drew to himself the bad side of Kayin. This is what led to the insurrection. This is all a metaphor to describe the psychological components that influence human behavior, be it tolerance towards victimization and subjugation (the bad side of Abel), the spirit of liberty, fighting oppression and standing up for right (the good side of Abel) and the spirit of destruction for the sake of destruction (the bad side of Kayin), embraced by Korah, and many in our modern world. This is an important lesson to understand our world today and the human psychology that is driving it. All it explained practically by understanding the original Kabbalistic metaphors as they are rightfully to be understood.
