“You and your households” are the main, secondary, and tertiary forces of our soul. For example, “wife” is the primordial human desire, and “children” represent what a person generates by his actions. All other relatives are everything that he includes in himself as primary, secondary, and tertiary desires, and so on.
The phrase, “you shall eat before the Lord, your God,” refers not to material meals, but to the absorption (perception) of the Upper Light, the Creator, and the sensation of Him. In other words, we are talking about the anti-egoistic screen.
Everything in Kabbalah is explained very simply, and therefore, I, personally, and my students don’t have any association with earthly actions.
Thus, the phrase, “And there you shall eat before the Lord, your God, and you shall rejoice in all your endeavors,” means that we must reach such a state in our desire that we will be able to fulfill it, and this is called “eat and drink” since the Light of Hochma symbolizes food and the Light of Hassadim symbolizes drink.
In other words, the fulfillment that is called holy will enter our desires because it is only for the sake of the Creator, and this is His revelation.
