To grasp the inner meaning of the book of Numbers, one has to comprehend the innate energy of the desert as a spiritual vacuum. More than just a physical environment, the desert represents the darkness of our ego that we are meant to overcome in order to bring the Light into our lives. It is the ego that we are ultimately enslaved to as it hides in our fears, doubts and limitations. As the Israelites who were led by Moses from bondage to the land of Canaan, we too can take control of our own journey by understanding the concepts of slavery and freedom. The purpose of this book is to bring the Creator’s Light into the “desert” in which the world finds itself. The stories guide readers to the Spiritual Promised Land — which is their true destiny.
The text is complimented by excerpts from the Zohar and from the writings of three of history's greatest Kabbalists: Rav Yehuda Ashlag, Rav Yehuda Brandwein, and Rav Berg.
