The Ladder Of Properties

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe Book of Zohar, Chapter “Truma (Donation),” Item 503: “You shall make a table.” A table stands inside the tabernacle with a high blessing upon it, and food for the entire world coming out of it. This table need not be empty for even a minute, but food should be on it because there is no blessing on an empty place. For this reason, there must always be bread on it so that the high blessing is always in it. From that table, blessing and food go forth to all the tables in the world, which are blessed thanks to it.

The key during the reading of The Book of Zohar is to organize the system of values within oneself so that by every word, one would move along the ladder of properties and inner definitions, understanding that everything exists within one’s desire. This desire has multiple shades, and within them, one has to try to understand the study material. Then, as a result of these efforts, the Surrounding Light will come to him.

  1. Is the reason why the words of The Zohar cannot be understood by someone who hasn’t gone through a transformation is because it describes the spiritual world and the words of bestowal are used. And a person who is an egoist only sees the world through egoistic perceptions?

  2. On page 160 in The Zohar, is the ZA considered part of the lower world? And does the Partzuf form out of it because it is rejecting the light from ZAT?
