By acting upon us, the Light divides within us the receiving and bestowing desires, and we start feeling rejection between them. It becomes clear that the bestowing desires gravitate to a different perception and fulfillment from those of the receiving desires.
Each of us possesses desires of both kinds, and the question is which of them prevail. In the souls regarded as “Israel,” the bestowing desires, GE (Galgalta Eynaim), rule over AHP (Awzen, Hotem, Peh), whereas in the souls of the “nations of the world,” the receiving desires, AHP, rule over GE.
The first type of souls is closer to the Light which illuminates them with Ohr Makif (OM) and causes them to undergo corrections first. Until “Israel” corrects itself, it is impossible to begin correction of the “nations of the world.” First, “Israel” corrects itself in GE (the right line), then adjoins AHP (the left line) to it, and finally builds the middle line from them, thus correcting the “nations of the world” within itself. As a result, “Israel” is able to continue the correction of the collective group, the “nations of the world,” since its corrected Kelim (vessels) are connected with the uncorrected Kelim of the rest of the souls waiting in line.
Work in the two lines with the receiving and bestowing Kelim, in their correct combination creates the middle line. Such are the steps of our correction in both parts of the collective soul. Furthermore, major corrections take place in AHP or the receiving Kelim of the “nations of the world” whereas GE that initially descended from Bina exist in AHP solely in order to correct it.
Hence, all our corrections that precede the correction of the “nations of the world” in the collective soul are merely a preparation.
