“Then Moses Went Up To The Mountain”

laitman_740.03Torah, Exodus 24:15 – 24:18: And Moses went up to the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. And the glory of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days, and He called to Moses on the seventh day from within the cloud. And the appearance of the glory of the Lord was like a consuming fire atop the mountain, before the eyes of the children of Israel. And Moses came within the cloud, and he went up to the mountain, and Moses was upon the mountain forty days and forty nights.

“And Moses went up to the mountain” and disappeared into the cloud means he had completely reached the property of Bina (the 40th property).Forty is the level of Bina with respect to Malchut. Absolute, complete bestowal is the first general stage of a person’s ascension.

Question: Why did Moses enter the cloud?

Answer: Entering the cloud symbolizes the entrance of the Creator’s power to this stage. And then, over the course of 40 years, Moses rises more fully into this stage and completes the work before the entrance of the people into the “Land of Israel,” into the next state. “And Moses was upon the mountain forty days and forty nights” because there is no day without night and no night without day. A person must first plunge into the night, into all the opposite egoistic qualities and express them, and only then, with the help of the Light, can he correct them to the properties of Bina. Therefore, “and there was evening, and there was morning—one day” means that everything begins at night.

Moses received the tablets, the Torah, and the commandments; he descended from the mountain and began to work. This means that a person has pulled himself up to his highest level, got hooked, appeared in the world like a newborn, and now needs to raise himself into the new world.

In order to come to this state, he is given an instruction—a Light of correction that awaits until a person needs it.
