The True Meaning Of “Thou Shall Not Steal!”

what-does-the-torah-say-about-the-red-string“Theft” in spirituality means that you reveal a desire inside you that you can use for the sake of bestowal (that you can raise to Bina), but instead of doing this, you use it to enjoy for your own sake. This is called “theft” or “stealing.”

A person has to attain the quality of bestowal in all of his 613 desires. Otherwise he is a thief. This is why there is a commandment that says, “Thou shall not steal!”
