1304 Entering the Mountain of Wisdom

1304 MK

What does it mean to enter the mountain of wisdom rather than "climb" or "ascend"? The Torah describes Moses going up Mt. Sinai to get the tablets of teachings. However a literal reading of the actual Hebrew suggests that Moses went “into” the mountain. The Kabbalist reads this as that Moses needed to enter a higher state of consciousness in order to fulfill his destiny, and this translates into our “inner Moses,” the part of us that yearns to merge with the Divine, is receiving obvious instruction here and throughout the Torah on how to go about opening one’s Awareness to the true nature of things.
