The Torah, “Exodus” (Ki Tissa), 33:6-33:7: So the children of Israel divested themselves of their finery from Mount Horeb. And Moses took the tent and pitched it for himself outside the camp, distancing [it] from the camp, and he called it the tent of meeting, and it would be that anyone seeking the Lord would go out to the tent of meeting, which was outside the camp.
There are such egoistic attributes in each of us with which there is nothing we can do, while the desires that we can raise ascend to the level of Bina, to the attribute of bestowal, to the attribute of Moses. It’s there in these single awakenings that we can be in contact with the Creator for a while. “Outside the camp” means outside all the desires, when we only have one specific intention that is aimed at the goal, to connect to the level of Moses
The Torah, “Exodus” (Ki Tissa), 33: 8: And it would be that when Moses would go out to the tent, all the people would rise and stand, each one at the entrance of his tent, and they would gaze after Moses until he went into the tent.
A tent symbolizes the attribute of Bina, of bestowal. “People,” which means all of a person’s desires, are aimed at this attribute, but cannot move and cannot be in it yet. Only the point called Moses ascends to this level.
