As we enter into the portion of Vayelech, we are also entering into the month of Tishrei (Libra) and the holiday of Rosh Hashanah. The portion of Vayelech is one of the shortest in the Bible, and we know that where there is less, there is always more – making this one of the most powerful weeks of the entire year to inspire inner change and closeness with the Creator.
Rosh Hashanah is the birth of humanity, the birth of Adam and Eve. It is also the birth of a completely new cycle – a new month, a new year. We learn in our studies at the Kabbalah Centre that the seed level – the start – contains everything. In fact, we encourage each other to take extra precaution in the first day of a new month, as our actions and consciousness on this day directly influence all the days in the month that follow. If this is true of each month, how much more so it must be for the year.
