Torah, “Deuteronomy,” 4:11 – 4:12: And you approached and stood at the foot of the mountain, and the mountain burned with fire up to the midst of the heavens, with darkness, a cloud, and opaque darkness. The Lord spoke to you out of the midst of the fire; you heard the sound of the words, but saw no image, just a voice.
It is impossible to see the image of the Creator simply because it doesn’t exist.
The Creator is a quality. I don’t like the word “God” because it is threadbare, overused by everyone, and nobody knows what a person means by it. Therefore, in order not to confuse people, I say “the Creator,” i.e., the force that created everything.
“God” sounds like something abstract, and the Creator is something more definite.
It is written, “You heard the sound of the words, but saw no image, just a voice.” A voice is the quality, or the Light that extends from the head to the body of the soul (Partzuf).
In other words there is a special device in the spiritual body that extends the Upper Light to the bottom of the Partzuf through five special parts (throat, palate, gums, teeth, tongue, throat, and lips) that are five special characteristics of the spiritual system. Receiving the upper energy there feels like voice.
The descent of the Light is driven by the qualities of Bina, for Bina symbolizes hearing and a person receives the Light according to his ability to hear.
Question: And then what do the words, sentences, and sounds mean?
Answer: When a person, according to his equivalence to the spiritual guidance, absorbs it in his qualities, it settles in him and is transformed from egoistic qualities to altruistic ones.
It is very difficult to explain spiritual processes and even more difficult to understand them. Therefore, we need to begin studying the Torah seriously and then gradually, to the extent to which a person begins to change, he will understand what “The Great Commentary” and all other authentic sources talk about.
