A question that I received: How can it be that a woman is incapable of independently merging with the Creator if that is her desire? Can there even be a desire without the potential to be fulfilled? If women feel the need to merge with and feel the Upper World, do they need to study and pray for the men’s mercy so that they would fulfill this need? If they are incapable of making any independent steps toward drawing closer to and attaining the Upper One, that right there says that from the very beginning they’re inferior to and smaller than the men.
My Answer: Men don’t have an independent desire to merge with the Creator either: they need to pass their desire through the group. In other words, in place of their own desire to receive, they need the desire of the group – the desire to bond the souls with the Light of the Creator, the Light of bestowal and love (toward one’s friend). This is the state the souls were in before the breaking of the vessels. It is the only desire that the Light perceives, and it is the only desire that the Light realizes (corrects).Lesson: The Bond (Arvut) [57:55m]: Play Now | Download
