Questions: What does the “weekly Torah portion” mean in terms of one’s inner development?
Answer: A weekly portion is a part of our spiritual path, which starts and ends at a certain spiritual degree. It summarizes our progress at a given state. And then a new portion starts: a new turn, renewal of the upper mechanism that acts upon us and is called Zeir Anpin of the world of Atzilut.
A week or seven days is the seven Sefirot of Zeir Anpin, HGT-NHY-M, which get renewed again and again on each degree. From Zeir Anpin, we receive a certain portion of the Light and with it, correct ourselves. This means that we have performed a weekly correction and cannot do anything on the last day, Saturday.
Everything that gets corrected during the six days goes from the six Sefirot of Zeir Anpin (HGT-NHY) into Malchut.
