Question: How can the Reflected Light be a vessel for fulfillment?
Answer: What else can be a vessel for fulfillment? A desire cannot be a vessel because a vessel is a place fit to receive the Light, the revelation of the Creator—the fulfillment I have chosen as my goal.
After all, my goal is to reveal the Creator within me. In other words, I strive to become just like Him, to build His model in me, and this model will correspond precisely to the qualities that I will receive from Him and clothe myself in. And then I will become similar to Him, and we will merge into one whole according to the law of equivalence of form.
My final goal is adhesion. In other words, I need to reveal my forms of merging with the Creator; I should merge with Him more and more one degree at a time. And I can merge with Him only according to the law of equivalence of form. Therefore, I need to reach exactly the same degree of bestowal as He has, and to this extent we will unify or merge.
The form of bestowal in which I wish to clothe myself in order to identify myself with this bestowal is the Reflected Light. Thus the Reflected Light becomes a means for adhesion, a vessel for receiving fulfillment, for me.
