All Changes Are in the Desire, Not in the Light
We attain everything according to our sensations. And reality, as it is in itself, is of no interest to us at all. Hence, we do not attain the upper Light and the Creator at all, but only attain our sensations. Thus, all of our impressions follow only our sensations.
– Baal HaSulam, Shamati (I Heard), Article No. 66, “The Giving of the Torah”
The spiritual Light tells us not about its path, but only about the reaction within us to the encounter with the Light.
