The language of branches can be very useful if we are in two worlds simultaneously. It explains to us how to use the objects of our world in the most effective way so as to influence other people through them, awakening them to correction.
If I had precise knowledge of man’s nature and that of all the objects at my disposal, I might be able to awaken the whole world to correction! I would know exactly what films, texts, and music are necessary for this. I would make a calculation on their souls and the forces I want to enact inside of these souls according to their inner structure, which is known to me.
However, since for now they do not understand communication on the level of souls and inner forces, I translate it to a different dimension, to the level of their material hearing and sensation, as well as the sounds of musical instruments. That way I gain an opportunity to influence them.
Through these external instruments, I can awaken inner forces within them which they don’t even know themselves. This influences them through the external hearing, through music, and gradually awakens inner forces within them. That’s because a person is an integral system in which corporeality and spirituality unite. It is therefore possible to influence a person by material means, but with an intention to influence him on the inner, spiritual level. That way it is possible to lead him into vibrations and a resonance, and to receive a reaction on layers that he does not even suspect himself through hearing music and other external influences.
That is exactly how we awaken ourselves by reading Kabbalistic books, such as The Zohar and Talmud Eser Sefirot. We thereby raise our sensitivity to the Light that Reforms. This Light is not present on the material level. But Kabbalists have arranged it so that through this external influence on my ear and eye, I receive an inner influence as long as I attune myself with the desire to receive precisely this.
Therefore, if we find out the connection of the roots with the branches on the levels of two parallel worlds, spiritual and material, one against the other, then it is possible to awaken the whole world to correction. We actually do act that way, but not with the same might as the authors of The Zohar do.
