The Secret of the “Mirrors of Legions”

The “Ibn Ezra” says: They only took the mirrors of the righteous women, who separated from all the desires of this world, and did not want any desire, and rejected all desire, may its name be erased, and only stood all day in prayer in their home and in the Tent of Meeting.

As it is written in the Noam Elimelech, paragraph 3: That all desires are from the skin of the serpent – the leprosy (tza’arat) of the skin of the serpent.  And a person needs to be distant from them like the distance of a bowshot.  To be distant from them, because they contradict the will of the body.

And this is what Hashem said to Moshe Rabbeinu, “Bring your hand to your bosom” (Shemot 4:6), and then he saw that his hand was leprous like snow.  And then Hashem said to him to return his hand to his bosom, and then he returned his hand to his bosom and it reverted to be like his flesh.  Rabbeinu explains in Part 2 [of Likutey Moharan] Lesson 23: That Hashem showed Moshe Rabbeinu that all his body until now was from the skin of the serpent, from the leprosy of the skin of the serpent, and from now, his body is exchanged, and he will merit from now that he is on Mount Sinai to a holy body from the Garden of Eden, clean from any trace of desire or bodily sensation, until Moshe was transformed, all his being, and only intellect remained alone.
