English translation of Rabbi Itamar Schwartz shiiur on Corona, translation by Rav Sheya Klein

Here is a pdf on Parsha Vayikra from the Arizal that might offer some helpful Torah insights to comprehend more deeply where we may attach more strongly to Hashem in our essence.

Below are two quotes from the pdf on Parsha Vayikra that may help relate the shiur to our lives today:

“Evil is that which does not promote Divine consciousness or is antagonistic to it. It obstructs divine consciousness”

“Acknowledging the Divinity present in creation breaks the shell open.  But, like the shell or peel of a nut or fruit, evil also serves a constructive purpose.  It protects and nurtures the fruit within until it is ripe. So, too, when a child, for example is developing, he must establish first his sense of self, his ego.  Only later can he re-define himself in terms of a broader consciousness of society and ultimately Divinity”.
