The Correction Of The Sabbath

Laitman_633_4Torah, “Leviticus” (Kedoshim), 19:30: Ye shall observe My sabbaths and revere My sanctuary. I am the Lord.

The Sabbath is the private end of correction on every level. Every level undergoes a correction during six days, six sub-levels (Hesed, Gevura, Tifferet, Netzah, Hod, Yesod), and then all the attainments are summed up to a general level that is called Sabbath.

The sum of the levels, the combination between them, and the correct mutual connection between them are done under the influence of the Upper Light. A person cannot express himself in any way by correcting and collecting these states. It is not in our power. We only perform private corrections by preparing them for unity, and the Upper Light connects everything.

It turns out that a person doesn’t work on the seventh level. This state is called Sabbath, which means rest, a sabbatical (complete rest), which appears when you are not involved in the last process that sums up the six levels. Therefore, the Sabbath symbolizes holiness.

As a result of the Upper Light, the end of the correction of all the levels and the sum of all the Sabbaths into one single Sabbath, the whole world reaches one unique state of complete rest. There is nothing else to correct. There is nothing else to discover, to clarify, or to connect. An absolutely final outline of the soul is created, which is called the last Sabbath of the world.

Therefore, if you spiritually observe every private Sabbath correctly, you get the feeling of the perfect ultimate state. However, this refers only to those who have spiritual attributes.

Question: Sometimes, religious people say that, if all the Jews observed the Sabbath all the time, there would be a feeling of the end of correction, of the last Sabbath.

Answer: Even twice is enough. If we repeated that state at least two consecutive times, we would transcend two levels higher from the previous uncorrected state. On the third level, it is already the end of correction since the general request rises to the upper and then to the uppermost, and then everyone enters the world of Ein Sof (Infinity).

In our world, the Sabbath symbolizes the end of the week, but we should understand that the term “Sabbath” refers to a certain correction of a person during six levels, and not days. Each of these levels can last for many months and even years, and it also can last for a couple of moments.

It is only when we gradually go through all the six levels—by collecting all our desires by which we tried to perform spiritual actions of disseminating the attributes of love and bestowal to the one force outwardly—do we attain the state of Sabbath.

However, it isn’t the pleasure from resting, but very serious work that doesn’t end in the actions of correction, but in collecting all the corrected parts into one unique whole. The Light does that, but we need to clarify in advance, to merge, to place, to show everything, and to raise this state to the Upper Light.

Therefore, the work on the Sabbath isn’t the clarification of the lack of correction, but working on wholeness. Everything that we do during the week accumulates into the right formation on Sabbath. This work is called the corrections of the Sabbath.
