Cursory Thoughts On Shamati, “What Does It Mean That The Sitra Achra is Called ‘Malchut Without A Crown'”
The will to enjoy, egotistic pleasures, the egoistic desire, is called the “corporeal world,” and the desire to give, to fill, and to bestow is called the “spiritual world.” There is hardly any difference between the two except for one—the result.
If a person performs an act of bestowal, he must discover the Light. This means that he reaches Keter (crown). But if he doesn’t perform an act of bestowal, he doesn’t attain Keter. The only difference is the result.
Therefore, the impure force (Sitra Achra) is called “Malchut without a crown (Keter),” when I’m in the desire to receive, but the Light of Keter doesn’t reach me.
