This is why Moses (the highest level of awareness of God and His love) speaks to the highest qualities of our consciousness, represented by the heads of the tribes. These heads know the boundaries between what is permissible and not permissible, and mark them according to our strengths and weaknesses when we face the illusions of the material world.
Massei continues describing the borders of the land and the areas where the tribes will dwell, including 48 cities for the Levites among every tribe, six of them called "cities of refuge".
The commandment to have cities of refuge is another manifestation that God's loving kindness for us to exercise compassion for those who sincerely commit to redirect their lives in His ways. This compassion can't be extended to those who deliberately murder others, and the Torah commands us to impose the death penalty for them.
Massei ends with a joyous episode.
Let's comment on the haftarah that complements these two portions (Jeremiah 1:1-19, 2:1-3). The Creator speaks to us with the sweetest words.
These are the words of the greatest love of all that knows us before we are aware of being alive. God's love blesses us before we reveal His presence in the world. We are His love manifest as we can see Him also manifest in all His creation. We go where He tells us to go and our actions speak what He commands us. He is with us when we exit the realm of materialistic illusions, thus there is nothing to fear.
