(“Mountain” comes from the Hebrew word contemplations). Does this mean that Moses led them to the end of the thought, the understanding and the mind, which is the lowest state?
Answer: The role of the attribute of Moses in a person is to establish the understanding of what the attribute of bestowal means in him. Moses has to help the people of Israel know who the Creator is. In all our Reshimot (spiritual genes) that include all of Malchut of Ein Sof (Infinity), there is such an attribute called “Moses,” a level that connects between all the shattered parts. Its role is to help a person know the whole attribute of bestowal. When a person acquires such an attribute, he can already add his vessels to it and work to receive in order to bestow.
This means that “Moses led them to the end of the thought and the understanding.” He leads a person through all the desires, his vessels, called “the desert,” purifying the desires, these vessels in the desert from the intention of in order to receive called “Egypt” by bringing everyone to the intention of to bestow in order to bestow. Then they are ready to actually work in the three lines, which is called the conquering of the Land of Israel.
