Ki SiSo-Daf 111 in Tora Ohr
The Possuk says when Moshe will count the Jewish people each person should give a half Shekel for Atonement.
Moshe like a shepherd strengthens our faith that it should be in an internal and strong way. Moshe accomplishes this through Daas- Giving us knowledge in Hashem like concepts that we are nothing compared to him. This is what it means Ki Sisa Es Rosh-That Moshe “picks up our head”-He gives us knowledge in Godliness so our belief should be in an internal way. Just like it was in the Beis Hamikdash that the Machtzis Hashekel went towards the Sacrifices and there was a fire from above in the shape of a lion which would consume the sacrifices and through this our animal soul was included in Godliness. 
This is achieved nowadays when we don’t have sacrifices through davening when we think about Hashem’s greatness and how Hashem is one even after Hashem created the world you will yearn to be included in Godliness.
This is what it means To refine silver-1st you think in Psookay Dzimra and Krias Shema about the greatness of hashem and how could I go against him and in each part of davening the course bad is refined until by Shnone esray what is refined is the most subtle bad E.G. that you are an existence and the whole person becomes nullified to Hashem while saying Slach Lonoo- Please forgive us while saying Shmono Esray.
This is what it means there is blemish in the Eye which only the Jews regard as a blemish- for a non-Jew for him to think about Hashem and not to effect his mind and heart is Ok as he is rooted in the Achrayim-Just an external energy- He doesn’t receive Godliness in a direct way. But for a Jew not to be affected by Hashem’s greatness in his mind and heart when routed in Hashem’s Essence is a big issue.
It says Bshekel Hakodesh without a Vov- Which is the the level of Chesed Hoelyon which arouses us which is higher than Sovev and Mamlay. And then  bring Gold Silver and copper which represents The Korbonos/Davening Good deeds and Torah which brings everything up this influence which comes from above is like a scale when have half on one side and when put something on the other side the thing is raised up. Raises up our work and we are completely refined and the bad itself is transformed the good. 
It says the poor and rich give all the same as this revelation from above come equal to everyone both those rich and poor in Mitzvos.
Short Summary- Moshe Gives us knowledge in Hashem so we can feel nothing compared to him and become nullified thus getting rid of all the bad inside ourselves and have yearning for Godliness and Hashem gives you a revelation from above which inspires the Person.
