Lech Lecha: Chapter 6
"And I will make of you a great nation," part one

All the blessings that Abraham received are explained in the following section of the Zohar. Abraham received these blessings because he let go of his own ego and completely surrendered to the Creator.


The intelligence of the body creates an illusion that we are in control of our lives. Nevertheless, anxiety, fear, emotional turmoil, and external chaos continue to be an affliction. When we let go of this illusion and relinquish control, we create a space for the Light of the Creator to enter our existence, removing all darkness. We acquire the power from the blessings that Abraham received, instilling us with the courage to entrust the Creator with control over our life.
