Likutei Sichos- A complete Sicha in one class. VOL.31 classes

Likutei Sichos vol 31 page 77 ff Class One: (oral) introduction, more is discussed about music. The idea of כחות vs חושים. The senses get to the essence and from the essence much more quickly but fleetingly. The "songs" on the Torah are Torah, they speak from the Soul or to the Soul in a way that bypasses the long involved path of the mind and heart rout. This first song sings even of the Beis Hamikdash and Moshiach because that is what we sing about in this first song.

Class Two: Inside. The first song sings of everything that brings to הוי' ימלוך לעולם ועד- the world becoming His. The two approaches of Rashi and the Mechilta-how significant is the ridding the evil to the ultimate purpose?

מכת חושך is compared to Golus as it relates the Yidden (as we'll see in the next class on this Sicha) accordingly we discuss how this מכה was a Golus (of sorts) for the Egyptians.

Class One. The plague of blood was static- being fully manifest from the first moment and not advancing over the course of the week it lasted. Still at week's end it was completed- why? We'll continue next time.   Class Two. Blood still advances over the week, as it's education is completed not only over the course of the week it inflicted Egypt, but even the three weeks between plagues was a part of the education.

In contrast top the convention that there are two successive stages to the Pharaoh's stubbornness; one where he is stubborn on his own and another where Hashem makes him stubborn. The Rebbe proves that: 1) The two levels of the Pharaoh's stubbornness are simultaneous and last fro the duration of all ten Makkos beginning with the very first. His first stubbornness makes some sense; while the second makes no sense whatsoever. 2) Moshe was told about these two stubbornnesses so he could combat it with two levels of קבלת עול to counteract Klipa's stubbornness.

Moshe complains (and he is right). But Hashem explains that the only way to get הוי'ה on the level above all constraints.

Loshon HaRa is the only thing that prevent a nation from being formed, even if God is the creator. Idolatry isn't as negative as disunity.
