Parsha Ki Tissa 5778
"In essence, the message of Ki Tissa is, if we cease evolving in our spiritual understanding, we will fall back to a lower level. The ego wants us to stay at the lowest level of understanding, and this parashah is subtly about the struggle to overcome “the inner Satan” expressed through the ego, versus waking up to the truth..." ~ Torah As a Guide to Enlightenment (pp. 303)
