Pinchas: Chapter 51

"And their feet were straight feet"


The Faithful Shepherd undertakes a difficult explanation of a portion of Ezekiel's vision, from which we understand that people must run to the Torah and its precepts, and return in repentance.


Repentance blooms in our hearts, opening up a door to the Upper Spheres. A ceaseless flow of Light pours out upon Creation.

We are connected to the angel Michael, who blankets the world with boundless Mercy, igniting and ensuring our Redemption through compassion, not destruction. The angel Gabriel fights on our behalf and triumphs over the left side (our Evil Inclination). Our prayers ascend to the Holy One through the power and secret of the "straight feet," and all mankind begins to walk in the way of the Light.
