The Sixties Radical-Azriel Our Infinite Divine Potential

This is amazing. “Thus, Balaam said, “He does not look at the evil in Jacob – i.e., G‑d sees that we can conquer our inner animal, because G‑d is with him – i.e., within him, referring to the Divine soul, which enables us to transform our inner animal.1 Hitva’aduyot 5743, vol. 4, p. 1777.

Balak then took Balaam to a second location, thinking that perhaps it would be easier for Balaam to curse the Jewish people from there. But once again, G‑d forced Balaam to bless the Jews rather than curse them.

                [Balaam said, “G‑d] does not look at the evil in Jacob [i.e., the Jewish people] . . . G‑d, their G‑d, is with them.” Numbers 23:21

The reason G‑d does not see any evil in us is because He views us as having already fulfilled our potential to reorient our animalistic sides toward Divinity, i.e., to harness our inner animal’s raw power in the pursuit of higher, Divine consciousness. What enables us to perform this transformation is our Divine soul. The spark of Divine consciousness within each of us possesses a spark of G‑d’s irresistible power, and can therefore overcome our inner animal.”
