Question: Could it be that the lower raises MAN (a prayer) to the upper and cannot keep on raising MAN?
Answer: This cannot happen! The upper is in a state of Hafetz Hesed and this is the reason it is the upper with respect to the lower. He is the one who created and gave birth to the lower.
The lower discovers itself existing with certain inclinations and Reshimot (spiritual genes), which means with a certain fate, all of which come from the upper. Our whole existence is thanks to our father and mother, and it is the same in spirituality. But we receive all the discernments from our spiritual father and mother.
This chain comes down from the world of Ein Sof (Infinity). Everything that happens in me, both in the feelings that arise in me and in my mind, is all arranged by the upper to the smallest detail. He arranges and directs everything in me with fine tweezers and knows all my reactions because he is my upper. The upper Partzuf in the spiritual world isn’t just the one through which I receive everything from above. The upper totally controls me to my last cell, to the smallest detail there can be, and which I will attain at the end of the spiritual ladder.
The upper raises MAN on my behalf, and in order to be connected to me he is in a state of Hafetz Hesed, of Bina, of bestowing in order to bestow. If he were in a state of greatness, I wouldn’t be able to ever see or feel him.
This is the reason that he remains in a state of smallness with respect to me and so I can ask from him. This means that I can connect to him and attain a minimal equivalence of form with him, and thanks to that, turn to him with my request. Otherwise I wouldn’t be able to do so and we could not understand one another.
The lower who rises to the upper doesn’t see this AHP and cannot digest and understand it. The lower only knows that it is someone greater than him and nullifies himself before him, which in the meantime is the maximum form of getting close to him.
Question: Does the upper see the GE of the lower?
Answer: The upper sees everything because he gave birth to the lower. It isn’t even the same as in our world where we can build a certain system and then find out that it doesn’t work as we expected. In the spiritual world, the upper is fully conscious of the lower that is totally revealed to him so that he can work with him. The upper doesn’t have to wait for any responses from the lower. He only wants for the lower to know his own responses.
