The Upper Father and Mother Who Understand Us

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe entire universe divides into three parts:

1. The root of the Light to which everything pertains beginning with the world of Infinity, the four stages of the Direct Light, and the initial point of creation all the way until Atik and Arich Anpin of the world of Atzilut. All of this is called the root or the source of the Light of Mochin (Hochma, Wisdom).

2. The actual Light of Mochin (Hochma) intended for the created beings, for which we dearly yearn, exists in Aba ve Ima (father and mother) of the world of Atzilut.

3. All of the following pertains to the created beings which receive the Light of Mochin: ZON (Zeir Anpin and Nukva) of the world of Atzilut as well as everything located beneath it. Essentially, all the worlds of BYA (Beria, Yetzira, Assiya) and all the Klipot (shells) are also parts of ZON.

We need to understand in all its detail the differences between the source of Light (Atik and Arich Anpin, and Aba ve Ima) in order to really be able to connect to Aba ve Ima. After all, the root of the created beings is contained within them, and we have to attain them. They are called the upper “Father and Mother” in the state of never-ending mating (Zivug de Lo Pasik).

For their creation, Atik and Arich Anpin take the parts of desire after the breaking, which did not have any connection with it. This is why they turned out to be so infinitely high for us, and they serve as the source of the Light of Mochin.

Atik takes GE (Galgalta ve Eynaim) from Keter of the world of Nekudim. Regarding Arich Anpin, besides taking the lower part, AHP (Awzen, Hotem, Peh) of Keter of the world of Nekudim, Arich Anpin also “steals” for himself the upper, the best, parts of all the remaining Partzufim which contain the entire Light (GAR de Aba, DAR de Ima, seven Keters). He takes everything for himself and remains independent from whatever happens below with us, the created beings.

It turns out that Aba ve Ima of the world of Atzilut only receive the lower part (ZAT) from Aba ve Ima of the world of Nekudim, the parts that led to the breaking. This means that they have been damaged by the breaking; they are to blame for it. They had to cancel themselves, and even though they themselves did not break, they still suffered.

Now, it is precisely these Aba ve Ima gathering new Partzufim from the broken vessels, desires of the world of Nekudim, that really help us with correction. This is because they attain the “never-ending mating” (Zivug de Lo Pasik) and the “Holy of Holies” (GAR of the Light of Hochma), but all of this they attain in the desires that suffered and led to the breaking.

Now, as they attain the “Holy of Holies,” they are able to take care of us because they have gone through all the defects and corrected them. They are ready to take care of us and save us from making mistakes. They can be a real upper “Father and Mother” to us. We are very lucky that such high desires are now heading up our entire process of correction.
