Lech Lecha: Chapter 11
"And Abraham passed through the land..."

The Zohar reveals a hidden mystery concerning all the travels of Abraham that are recorded in the Torah. The journeys are not concerned with geographical locations on Earth, but rather with the numerous spiritual levels to which our souls can ascend through personal transformation. The many difficulties associated with battling the angel Satan and the dark side of our nature, are discussed by the Zohar - all of life's processes up to the point of death.


Throughout the journey of life, we often veer off the positive track into negativity as we submit to the self-indulgent whims of the physical body and the dark side of our nature. The power of this passage lies in its ability to put us back on a spiritual path, connecting us to the will of our soul.
