Today, the broader mass of humanity has become the Kli (vessel) for revealing the Light. This is what the times demand. First there was the period of the patriarchs, after that the sons, and today, this is the period of the Messiah. In every period the conduct from above changed.
Our group is a transitional conduit first for the people of Israel and then together with it for the whole world. But specifically among the broader humanity the purpose of creation, the Ohr Hochma (Light of Wisdom), must be revealed.
The Creator is not Ohr Hassadim (Light of Mercy). The work on the density of the Shoresh (root), Aleph (first), Bet (second), is not yet the revelation of the Creator to the creatures, but only the correction of creation. After that it is necessary to realize the purpose of creation, to reveal the Ohr Hochma within the Kelim (vessels). This is possible only through the external Kli, the masses. As it is said: “If someone says there is Hochma among the nations, believe it.” (Eichah Rabbah 2:13).
But, “If someone says there is Torah among the nations, don’t believe it.” The Torah is the Light that Reforms. The nations of the world are not ready to attract the Light that Reforms to themselves, so they cannot heal themselves. But if someone helps them attract the Light and be healed, then the great Lights are revealed in them; specifically among them, the Creator is revealed.
The people of Israel merit the discovery of the Creator thanks to the nations of the world. When Israel joins them to it and corrects them, then the Ohr Hochma will be revealed in them. And Israel will also discover the Ohr Hochma thanks to this, when it conveys this to the nations of the world into what they are lacking. This is called is that Israel fills the Ohr Hassadim that is found in it with Ohr Hochma.
Israel belongs to the Kelim of bestowal and it cannot discover the Creator on some level by itself, without the nations of the world. But this is not that Light that must be revealed in the period of the Messiah. Our essential work is to prepare ourselves for the correction of the world. In this specifically we must see our mission, the work of the Creator.
The Creator is discovered in the deficiency of the people. When we accept the deficiency of the public, from it we create MAN (female waters) and raise it to the Creator. Then we receive double Light in response, as it is written, “The firstborn takes twice as much” (Baba Batra 124a) and we convey it to humanity. This means that the Ohr Hochma that is revealed among us is revealed in the Kelim of the public that we join to us. And among the public themselves, this Light is revealed in their main Kelim.
But in the meantime, all of the Kelim are connected into one Kli. Israel brings the adhesion with the Creator, and the nations of the world bring their deficiencies. This is how they work together. The nations of the world cannot discover the Creator without the help of Israel, and Israel cannot reach this discovery without the nations of the world.
For this it is necessary to create circles, many circles, until ultimately they will connect into one infinite circle. This is reciprocal work. Therefore it is said that the nations of the world raise Israel to the height of the third Beit HaMikdash (temple). And Israel is not prepared to rise to a height like this by itself, for the third Beit HaMikdash is the discovery of Ohr Hochma within Ohr Hassadim to a full degree, when: “They shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them.” (Jeremiah 31:33
Something like this is possible only thanks to the great Kelim of the nations of the world. But Israel must carry out this work.
