The Zohar and The Study of the Ten Sefirot describe the different levels of correction of the common system and the way it operates. I now reveal myself in a particular state, like Malchut of the World of Atzilut because spiritual perception begins from the moment I incorporate myself in it. I reveal that Malchut exists in a small state (Katnut) or a big state (Gadlut) and then goes through seven states as she gradually approaches her final correction.
While each of the seven stages is divided into a multitude of private states, this is the only thing that the Book tells us about: how to keep revealing a more perfect, connected, and unified system every step of the way. And in this system I reveal everything: myself, the World of Infinity, and the Creator, and all my future states!
