The Book of Zohar – Introduction, “Mother Lends Her Clothes to Her Daughter.” The Mother is Bina or YESHSUT. Her daughter is Malchut. Malchut is the desire to enjoy, which does not exist in Bina. Malchut may be associated with Keter only if it receives from Bina the screen and the Reflected Light. This is called the “clothes,” the main garment, the dressing of Hassadim.
This is the fundamental, basic principle of the wisdom of Kabbalah: how to get all the abundance that the Creator wants so much to give us.
The entire spiritual world is the system of relations between the upper Partzufim, from Malchut to Arich Anpin. Malchut of the world of Atzilut is contact with this world. Arich Anpin is the final correction (Gmar Tikkun). Thus, we are moving all the time between these states.
Malchut, standing at the point of the Parsa, must change all its garments in which it is located below the Parsa, leaving only one point from itself, and instead of this receive all the garments above the Parsa. This is called that it advances by faith above reason, the loyalty of the soul, and no previous garments remain with her—no mind, no feeling, no proof, no approaches, nothing that belongs to it below the Parsa, nothing that is personally its. There is no “mine!” There is only a point that remains, colorless and shapeless. And everything that I receive, I receive from what is above the Parsa, and this becomes my “I,” my reality.
This is the transition into the spiritual world: to replace all existing under the Parsa with all existing above it. Nothing is left in a person from the past—no memories, no proof, no reason, no feelings.
