Question: Everything is relative in the world, and everything moves and depends upon from where you are looking. Is there anything constant in the world? Can the wisdom of Kabbalah offer a constant point that can be taken for the beginning of the coordinates and used to develop the code of a new program?
Answer: A constant point is Malchut of the world of Atzilut, which exists in the form of the point of Sefira Keter that is attached to Yesod of Zeir Anpin. And it is the point of our adhesion with the group.
This is the point of the beginning of the coordinates, the foundation in relation to which we can always correctly measure ourselves in a very precise and rational form. Everything is evaluated on the basis of this point. After all, everything that exists below Malchut of the world of Atzilut: the worlds of BYA, referred to as being “separate” from sanctity, our “imaginary” world, all of this is foggy and unsteady, meaning it ascends, descends, and disappears.
And everything that exists above Malchut of the world of Atzilut is states Malchut attains and then reveals them to everyone inside of her. This is why it’s the only point where we can stand firmly and measure our state in relation to it.
You can object by saying that this point is above the Parsa, so how can we lean on it without yet having attained the spiritual world? But it’s exactly because you do not have anything that this period of preparation is called the time of darkness and exile! And on the contrary, if you were to cut off all your past false foundations, you would find this true point.
The fact that we are not willing to hold on to it and think that it’s unattainable somewhere behind the Parsa is exactly what gets in the way of our finding it. But you will find it here and now, inside of you, under the condition that you throw away all your egoistic foundations, which you think keep you firmly standing on the ground, and grab on to this point called faith above reason.
