An Echo Of Love

Dr. Michael LaitmanBaal HaSulam, “Introduction to the Study of the Ten Sefirot,” Item 89: The reward for a commandment lies not in this world, but in the world to come.

This refers to the part that we aren’t yet capable of correcting. Only after the “stony heart” is corrected, which is the true reverse side, the true AHP, rather than the AHP of an ascent, we can reveal the vessels that are filled with the Light of Infinity. Until then, we reveal only a drop, an echo, and not the true love, the light of Hochma in the vessels of reception. For now we have access only to a small luminescence, the reflection of Hochma in its movement from above downward, whose scale is incomparable to that of Hochma at the end of correction. In truth, we don’t yet reveal the quality of love.

This is concealed from the world. However, for as long as the worlds (Olamot) exist, which are essentially concealments (Alamot), until we’ve achieved the end of correction, love certainly cannot be revealed. After all, love is the direct fulfillment of vessels, when we have a screen for all the desires.

The desire to receive, the way it was in the world of Infinity and down to the first restriction, did not receive the Light for the sake of bestowal, and it will never be this way in the future. On a general note, it cannot be that the desire and the Light truly meet, for the Light to truly be in the desire. Therefore, we must recognize the difference between the love we reveal in AHP of an ascent and the love we will reveal at the end of correction.

Love is a certain revelation of the Creator, which cannot be revealed in its true form until the end of correction. And until then only His reverse side is revealed.
