“Carrying Them On Its Pinions”

laitman_232.03Torah, Deuteronomy 32:11 – 32:12: As an eagle awakens its nest, hovering over its fledglings, it spreads its wings, taking them and carrying them on its pinions.

[So] the Lord guided them alone, and there was no alien deity with Him.

The language of the Torah is very poetic. But when Kabbalah explains what the Torah is about, it is revealed that there is no poetry there. What is meant is the forces that rule us, lead us through all these states: both when we rise above the screen and when we go down below the screen, and so on.

These are very serious, uneasy, heavy actions that the Creator performs on us. And we must participate in them.

The eagle that “spreads its wings, taking them, carrying them” is the anti-egoistic screen that lifts us higher and higher.

The eagle carries its nestlings away not in claws, but puts them on its wings and flies. It’s amazing, but that’s exactly what happens. This is a special action of Bina when she raises Malchut to her and thus protects her from egoistic arrows that fly to her from below.
From KabTV’s “Secrets of the Eternal Book” 1/30/17
