Question: What does “adhesion to the Creator” mean?
Answer: Adhesion is according to the equivalence of form. The Creator is the level of Bina. This is how Keter presents itself to us through Bina that is totally in bestowal. This means that in order to reach the Creator I also have to be one who bestows.
How do I perform this bestowal? I hand my vessels, my desires, to Him so that He will bestow in them. I must have the right intention here, “Please bestow upon me since by that I want to bring You pleasure, to bring You joy, and to make You feel good.” Thus I place myself at His service.
Before I wanted to receive the goodness for myself, but now I restrict myself instead (Tzimzum Aleph – ZA), place a Masach (screen) over it to create the Returning Light, and all that in order to care for and think about Him, about the one who bestows. Afterward I already have the right intention, and to that extent I am ready to receive everything from the Creator.
It is because His desire is that I receive that I want to receive everything so that He enjoys. I will know this if I discover joy in Him. This is my goal—to bring the Creator joy just as He wants to be the good and benevolent for me.
So ask yourself: Why does everyone yearn for the revelation of the Creator? Is it in order to bring Him joy or to bring you joy? This is the whole idea.
