Dress Yourself In Bestowal

Dr. Michael LaitmanA big stage on our path is the stage of acquiring the quality of faith, or in other words, the quality of bestowal. To the degree we acquire it, we ascend above our nature and dress the quality of bestowal over our quality of reception.

As a result, we receive a full vestment on all of our desires, on all of their facets, and all the various kinds of mixtures between them. After that we continue our ascent, but already towards total faith. This means that we go from simple faith to the second stage of correction and acquire the quality of love. Then we correct our desires, filling them with the light of Hochma, pleasure, and by means of that we achieve bestowal.

Thus, the first stage is Hafetz Hesed, the level of Bina where we just correct the receiving desire by the altruistic intention, which clothes on it by the quality of faith, bestowal. That is how we attain the first three Sefirot of Bina.

Then we go on to its seven lower Sefirot, acquiring the ability to attach foreign Kelim or desires to ourselves, thereby correcting and filling them. Just like Bina, which fulfills the lower ones, we can also fulfill other Kelim.

How is this so if they are foreign for now and I cannot do this? The fact is that I fill them when I attach them to me so they are inside of me like at the stage of conception, or nursing, or the adult state (Mochin). That is my attitude to them.

This is already called perfect faith, the light of Hassadim with the fulfillment of the Light of Hochma.
