We all know that every branch is naturally close to its root, and so our nature is close to our root, to the Creator. The desire to bestow, like the Light, like the Creator that has created us, is instilled in it. But we are in a concealment that weighs heavily on us and doesn’t allow us to see ourselves the way we really are.
Therefore, all our attributes seem corrupt. However, we have to understand that it isn’t our true form. It isn’t us but rather the concealment! Only by taking off this concealment or by rising above it will we immediately reach our root. It’s like garments that we need to take off and rise above. This is called working in “faith above reason,” which means rising above our ego, above the cover that is over us, and living above it.
We are actually in the state of Ein Sof (Infinity) but we forget that. We should always see the world of Infinity in everything: in our relationships, in our aspirations, in the entire picture of the world that we see.
The Creator did not create anything bad; He only created good as a result of His aspiration to bring goodness. But He concealed this state so that we will discover it and see that He finds it desirable and we do so as well.
