Our path can be imagined as a computer screen where three windows or documents are opened at the same time. The last window is concealed; I don’t see it. This is me in the state of the Final Correction, in unity and adhesion with the Creator, in the root of my soul.
The window in the middle is my path, my advancement along 125 degrees. The first window is the one I now see in front of myself, my current state.
All three are states of my soul, what it perceives, since “we cannot name anything we do not attain.” Kabbalists have gone through this path, have experienced all these states from beginning to end, and they tell us about the process they have gone through.
