Questions I received on interpreting Baal HaSulam’s words and visiting graves of the righteous:
Question: In Shamati, Baal HaSulam mentions several times the “Masach de Hirik.” Would you please explain this phenomenon or concept?
My Answer: It is the correction of the soul in the middle line. One uses the egoism from the left line and the force of Light that corrects it from the right line, thereby building himself with the help of these two forces.
Question: What is the meaning of the word Yuli (יולי)?
My Answer: It is the initial material, from which everything developed.
Question: Why is the expression that Rav Ashlag uses, “What’s the meaning of my life?” and not for example: “What’s the meaning of life?”
My Answer: It’s because a person has to feel this question personally, to feel that his life depends on it completely. He has to feel that he is the only created creature (see the materials on Perception of Reality), and because of this, the purpose of life in general, of everyone’s lives, depends on his life.
Question: Where is the place in which the creature realizes his “I,” and on the other hand, realizes that there is none else beside Him?
My Answer: The place of realizing his “I” is in Malchut, and of realizing the Creator – in Keter.
Question: Does it help visiting the graves of the righteous and lighting a candle to sanctify the soul?
My Answer: Only psychologically!
