He had each of us sit across from another student a virtual stranger and asked us look deeply into the other persons eyes.
The Rabbi responded with a parable: All of them were being treated as nothing but servants. The brain never consulted with them or asked any of their opinions about what to do, rather, the brain made all the decisions by itself, and whatever it felt like doing, all the other organs were obligated to do.
Therefore it was necessary to ask the opinions of each oneand in cases of disagreement they would rule in accordance with the majority. Just tails that think they can offer an opinion.
In such a case, no one says that one must follow that majority!
One can visualize where this area is located by placing a finger behind the ear and another finger between the eyes. A bullet that pierces this area will surely kill the person. The following picture illustrates the how the mid- brain is centered in the head.
When we examine Shechem and the grave of Joseph HaTzaddikwe will see that Shechem bears the geographic topography similar to the brain with Jerusalem as the mid- brain. This causes us to recall the two hemispheres of the brain which are wells to hold our knowledge of Torah.
The secret password given to us by Yosef HaTzaddik, is pakod pakadti etchem.
Yosef is intimately associated with Shechem in that he was sold by his brothers in ShechemYaaqov Avinu gave Shechem to Yosef as an inheritanceand his bones were buried in Shechem. The Jews were given a sign: There is much, much more to this subject!
I have written a separate paper to try to delve into this most interesting subject. The name of the study is: It is at the highest part of the body to indicate an extremely elevated function: Where the forehead is facing is where you are going!
What direction are you facing? You will walk in the direction of your forehead. The forehead is a symbol of your ratzonyour desire. This is the Sanctuary. Just as the forehead is on the highest part of a man, so the Sanctuary is in the highest part of the world.
Just as most ornaments are suspended from the forehead, so priesthood, Levites, and kingship are from Jacob. The golden head-plate resembles another religious object worn above the forehead: The Sages in fact compared the twoand declared: Yet the argument seems weak.
Do the Sages really mean that tefillinworn by any Jeware holier than the sacred head-plate worn only by the High Priest when serving in the Temple?
We can divide all of life into two parts: We must be careful not to confuse one for the other.
It is easy to loose sight of our true goals when we are intensively occupied with the ways of achieving them. Even those who are careful to stay on track may not have a clear understanding of the true purpose of life. Knowledge of what HaShem wants us to do in each and every situation is by no means a simple matter.
Regarding the High Priestwe expect that the person suitable for such a central and elevated position will have reached the level of enlightenment whereby all activity revolves around one ultimate goal.
The common person, on the other handmay not reached this level of enlightenment.Windows to the soul: another way of looking at each other Many studies have shown that when we meet someone for the first time, our eyes can convey a wide range of feelings: trust or distrust, security, contentment, fear, etc.
