The vineyard symbolizes the fruit of reason, wisdom.
It is very difficult to ascend to this level. If a person who is in the land of Israel does not correctly interact with his desire, he cannot use the grapes, that is, the wine that embodies the Light of Hochma.
By the way, wine is a special non-perishable product. Recently, during archaeological excavations, wine dating back to the time of the Temple was discovered. It thickened, became jelly-like, but retained its properties, taste, and smell.
Salt and oil relate to the same group of products. Oil thickens, becomes pasty, but is still preserved. Wine, oil, and salt are the basis of the existence of nature itself, they have a very high spiritual root.
While oil simply drips from the olives, wine is produced by pressing the grapes and getting the juice. And earlier fermented wine was not used, it infused by itself, but grape juice was preferred. And it is said that a man would squeeze a bunch of grapes and bless the juice.
While making oil, it is best to put the olives in a large tub with a hole through which the oil flows down. The oil, which is obtained not by pressing, but in a natural way is considered the best and can be stored forever.
Salt, which embodies the inanimate stage of egoism, relates to the same group of eternal non-perishable products.
Question: The inanimate stage, in principle, does not develop. Are grapes and olives also related to it?
Answer: No. You yourself bring them to a point where they no longer develop.
All these processes are described in Talmud Eser Sefirot (The Study of the Ten Sefirot). There it is written about the laws of cooking and storing food and their spiritual levels and sources in a very interesting way. After all, in our world, we must act according to the way that spiritual forces are arranged in relation to a man.
