In this case a person cannot continue his correction since he is nourished by his “father” and “mother,” Abba and Ima. A strike means to harm the connection with them in such a way that a person disrespects and puts down this connection, breaking the Masach (screen) that his father and mother have given him. The attribute of Gevura from the left line reveals the ego that doesn’t want to be under the parents’ protection, under their Masach.
A person cannot continue his correction since all his corrections are fulfilled only by these two upper Partzufim, Abba and Ima. He refuses to acknowledge them, hits them, sends them away, draws away and removes their control over him, accepting their love in the form of hate that is opposite from him, and this is what actually kills him as a result.
There isn’t even one action in all these punishments. It’s all about the outcome of my action. There are no decisions to be made here. A person clarifies things and then his current level dies.
