We are at the bottom of the spiritual ladder, where every level has its special Light that grows as we climb in quantity and quality. Its influence on us changes our attributes in which we begin to know the reality that we live in. The only reality is the Creator.
It turns out that the levels of concealment become levels of revelation. Every level is made of two wholes. The first whole is a person’s yearning to reach the right deficiency by subduing himself each time to the environment, ready to accept its influence, and to be impressed by the upper Light, ready to rise above reason. He constantly prepares himself for the influence of the Light, which is called working at night, in the dark, in raising MAN, in prayer.
He operates according to his powers and doesn’t know what he yearns for. This means that Malchut rises to Binah, to Hafetz Hesed, to faith, and the main thing for a person is that his action will bring the Creator contentment. As a result of this correct and fulfilling action, the Light influences him and changes him.
All our advancement is by our being reborn over and over again. It is said: “Every day should be new to you,” which means that it’s impossible to compare today to yesterday. It is because every day a new vessel is born and it has a new basis, new Reshimot (spiritual genes), new values, and by that it is completely different from the previous state. A person already understands that his actions yesterday were mistakes, malicious actions, or Mitzvot (commandments), and he attributes everything to the Creator which eventually brings him to adhesion.
