Question: What does it mean to cross the Machsom (barrier)?
Answer: Crossing the Machsom is crossing the potential barrier, after which a person begins to understand what the characteristics of bestowal are, which he never felt before.
He assumed that engaging in bestowal or loving someone was similar to the spiritual quality, but in fact, everything is different.
A person acquires the characteristic of bestowal beyond the Machsom, and then he begins to see the world in a completely different light, as if a spotlight has been turned on and the true reality is revealed to him. And before that he was in the dark.
Suppose we were to turn on an X-ray; we would see everything with the light of the X-ray. But a spiritual light is not an X-ray. It reveals all the characteristics, connections, and qualities, everything around us.
Question: What does a person who has crossed the Machsom see?
Answer: Connections! Connections between all parts of creation in their true form, connections that had not yet been revealed as such. At the same time, the person has limitless enjoyment. His pleasure is a result of a great sense of harmony.
This is a unique divine melody that a person feels a need for at every moment, in every part of creation. They all complement each other mutually, they radiate and create a complete connection between them. In other words, different opposites are discovered simultaneously with the mutual complementarity between them, one above the other.
