In the corporeal world priests always received a part from taxes collected from the people. A priest’s entire life was devoted to serving in the Temple, education, and governing the Levites, whereas the Levites’ task was educating the entire nation.
Thus a multi-step structure was created: priests, Levites, Israel. In this way they served one another. Corporeality was ascending from bottom up; spirituality was descending from above down. Similarly, everything is organized within a person, in his soul, and in his people.
It is said, “I am your inheritance and portion among the children of Israel.” This is why the property of bestowal is the only space where a priest exists.
