The Torah, “Numbers,” 17:4 – 17:5: So Eleazar the Kohen took the copper censers which the fire victims had brought, and they hammered them out as an overlay for the altar, as a reminder for the children of Israel, so that no outsider, who is not of the seed of Aaron, shall approach to burn incense before the Lord, so as not to be like Korah and his company, as the Lord spoke regarding him through the hand of Moses.
Korach and his congregation are forces inside a person that express our internal attributes. Every person mentioned in the Torah reflects a certain unique attribute in a person’s general body.
The Torah, “Numbers,” 17:6 – 17:7: The following day, the entire congregation of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron saying, “You have killed the people of the Lord.” It came to pass while the congregation were assembled against Moses and Aaron, that they turned to the Tent of Meeting, and behold, the cloud had covered it, and the glory of the Lord appeared.
Everything that happens is necessary to bring about the revelation of the Creator. Even Korach’s rebellion and his seeming punishment, the concealment of that part in Malchut that cannot be on the level of Aaron, and the rebellion of the people are the revelation of all of the desires in our common body and their correction.
The congregation of the children of Israel, which means all of the uncorrected desires, tell Moses and Aaron, “You have killed the people of the Lord,” because this is how they feel themselves. It is because they compare themselves to Korach and his partners, while Moses and Aaron are very high moral principles to which our inner desires that are called the people simply cannot agree. This is actually how the correction of the desires takes place, and then the Creator is revealed.
