    When planes fly above the atmosphere they are not bound by the laws of weather, clouds, winds, etc. The same way when we can raise above our own atmosphere, above our own daas, our logical thinking and reasoning, above our finite vision, above our hopelessness, bleakness and desperation, we can free ourself from the shackles of the worldly weather, clouds and winds however they appear in our lives. Can we raise above our atmospheric existence, above the illusion of Yesh and finiteness. 
    Raising above, is raising into the infinite, where our mind, thoughts no longer can create clouds of pain and confusion, storms of unruly feelings and winds of uncertainty. can we reach for a place where we can free ourselves from the shackles of this world. A world that often holds our mind and body hostage to all kind of very limited, narrow and finite believes of what can be possible and available in our life.
    Can we open ourselves up to a new horizon, an horizon that sits way above all we know, above the clouds of reasoning and understanding, a place we cannot grasp with our  finite intellect, but when we allow, it can grasp us and embrace us with warm and love. A truth of Ayn that can fill up our body and soul in a way no yesh ever would or could......

    God created  us with this insatiable longing for Him, a desire to fill ourself up with His Godliness.
    A craving to connect with God and be embraced and held by Him like a nursing child without a care in the world. God created us in this fashion because He craves to have a relationship with us. When we become aware of our innate desperate need  for Him we can then connect to His desperate craving to connect with us, in this kind of spiritual union we can find infinite fulfillment, deep attachments and connections. Neither life nor death will ever do us apart.....

    But unfortunately when our “primal need” for God are not met we walk around earth in a state of infinite hunger, unfulfilled and so very empty.  Often unaware of why we experience such emptiness and so much disconnectedness in our existence,  we try to alleviate this  with all kinds of attempts to fill our life up with pursuit of material, of friendships or perhaps pursuits of success. Often to alleviate our painful existence, some of us engage in very dangerous and destructive addictions that only take us to darker and deeper abysses of disconnect and suffering.

    We walk around earth with this deep yearning and often we expect life, or our spouses to fill up this emptiness and longing. Then when they can’t we become frustrated and dissolution with them and life. Out of despair we surrender to all kinds of gods that we stumble as we tread wearily through the journey of life.... feeling so alone on this long and difficult journey.
    Not realizing God is always there waiting impatiently for us to grab His hand and....can we just let go, let go, let go of all....and connect....
    Then we can let go of all the other godly expectation we put in all the people in our lives, and in all our pursuits....we can then begin to live with a reality that won’t be so empty, disappointing and hopeless. Perhaps this new reality will allow us to experience a peace we had never known before......

    Is this video available?

    Did you successfully record both classes because I can't play them either here or on the youtube channel. If there are technical difficulties will you get them resolved?
