Not Just A Faucet

laitman_276_01Question: How does a person need to revive himself in states of descent?

Answer: Above there is a tank with Light from which two pipes with faucets extend and connect to the soul. The Creator turns on the faucet in one pipe and begins to stream Light into the soul. From this, a person begins to live, acquires the meaning of life, works, and everything is completely okay.

Not Just A Faucet
Suddenly, the Creator turns the faucet off and a person feels powerless, without any vitality. Everything is colorless, tasteless, and everything is gray. Where are the colors of life? Where are the tastes? The world has faded and fallen asleep.

The Creator does this so that the person will turn on the faucet himself and begin to fill himself. This is because in this way a person will make himself similar to the Creator. He will get the mind and heart, understanding the higher management and providence. This is not just a faucet. Rather, this is a system of management of the entire world, all of reality.

Through equivalence of form, he achieves correction and transforms into a man (Adam). So, the Creator sometimes closes the faucet and sometimes opens it, each time in different ways, and accordingly a person must open or close his faucet until he achieves equivalence with the Creator in all of his characteristics.
From the 4th part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 5/21/14, Writings of Baal HaSulam
