Mishpatim- laws for re-creation

Parshat Mishpatim is the portion of the Torah that outlines a comprehensive set of laws and rules that were given to the Israelites by God. It is a continuation of the laws and commandments given in Parshat Yitro, but with added depth and detail. The Hebrew word "Mishpatim" refers to laws that govern relationships between individuals and society, as well as monetary laws.

The Torah has always been a source of wisdom and guidance for people seeking to lead a righteous life. However, there are times when we need more than just intellectual understanding of the laws, we need to integrate them into our being.


The laws and rules outlined in Parshat Mishpatim are not only meant to be followed but to be internalized. They represent a set of guidelines for ethical behavior, as well as a system of justice. These laws are not just for the individual, but for society as a whole. They remind us that we are responsible for the well-being of each other, and that we must act with integrity and honesty.


DIN, the kabbalistic term for laws and rules, is not just a set of regulations. It is a deeper spiritual concept that refers to the order of the universe. The laws and rules are meant to maintain the balance of the universe and prevent chaos. The laws of DIN are not meant to be oppressive or restrictive, but to create harmony and balance.


Psychedelic integration is the process of integrating the experiences and insights gained from a psychedelic trip into one's everyday life. It involves taking the lessons learned and applying them to our behavior and decision-making processes. The Torah can be a useful guide for this integration process, especially Parshat Mishpatim.

Similarly, the purpose of psychedelic integration is not to escape reality, but to find balance and harmony within ourselves and our surroundings. It is a process of connecting with our true selves and understanding our place in the universe. By integrating the lessons learned from a psychedelic experience, we can find a sense of inner peace and harmony.


The laws and rules of Parshat Mishpatim can provide a framework for this integration process. They remind us to act with compassion and empathy, to be fair and just in our dealings with others, and to respect the dignity and worth of every human being. They teach us to be responsible for our actions and to seek forgiveness when we have wronged others.

In the same way, psychedelic integration requires us to take responsibility for our actions and to seek forgiveness when we have caused harm. It requires us to act with compassion and empathy, and to respect the worth and dignity of ourselves and others. By following the laws of DIN, we can create a sense of harmony and balance in our lives, and in the world around us.

In conclusion, Parshat Mishpatim is a reminder of the importance of ethical behavior, justice, and harmony. The laws and rules outlined in this portion of the Torah can provide a framework for integrating the lessons learned from a psychedelic experience. By following these laws, we can create a sense of balance and harmony in our lives and in the world around us.
