Parshat Matot – How to Kill with a Word. The importance of the words we speak. Readings from Yaakov Abuhatzera, the Ben Ish Hai, and Rebbe Menahem, the Chernobler Rebbe. Words are physical expressions of the feelings we feel, and the thoughts that we think. As such, words have far more power than their mere sound. There are entire universes whose laws of physics are built on either emotions or thoughts. We are connected to these universes within our minds and hearts. At present they are in the unconscious part of the mind, due to the existence of the physical body. Yet, upon separation from the body (death), we are left with the emotional and mental universes that we ourselves have projected. Essentially, we have created our own heaven and hell. Everything has life within it, when we eat we absorb life from the universe. What do we do with the life that we absorb. When we act in bad ways with a bad heart, we are perverting the life force energy that we imbibed. This will come back and haunt the one who has done it.
