The Divine Light’s Practical Purpose

Kabbalah confirms that the Heavenly Light, when drawn from its supreme source, is the only substance which will unite the world into one loving, harmonious, eternal brotherhood.”
— Levi Isaac Krakovsky, The Omnipotent Light Revealed – Wisdom of the Kabbalah

The Heavenly Light, Ohr Elyon, in Hebrew, brings peace and unity to the world; this is based on an interpretation of two words:  Ohr, light, (אור) and Ore, skin, (עור) two Hebrew words that sound alike and therefore have, in Kabbalah, a hidden connection.  The Ohr, the light descends from above to cover the world’s inhabitant like an Ore, a skin, and just as human skin covers and connects all parts of a human being’s body, so too, the Ohr from above, brings a spiritual unity that connects all human beings together in peace.

This spiritual knowledge enables us to see through superficial differences that separate us and to perceive a basis for the family of man. 

The Age of Aquarius is a name for the New Age (Messianic Age) that many hope for and that the world sorely needs.   In Jewish astrological tradition, the keyword for Aquarius, is, in Hebrew, OHEV  meaning ‘friend’ or ‘one who loves’, from the Hebrew root AHAV, to love.  The Hebrew word for ‘love’ is ‘ahava’.


Mazal/Astrology and Man’s Search for Meaning


Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life to carry out a concrete assignment which demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it.
Victor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning

In Kabbalah, we learn that each individual is born according to their specific mazal (destiny or fate) on the day and hour chosen by God to provide the new born the appropriate  opportunities to advance its spiritual development and thus, achieve its life’s fulfillment and thereby, participate in Tikkun ha’Olam, or fixing the world.
