Torah, Deuteronomy 32:13 – 32:14: He made them ride upon the high places of the earth, that they would eat the produce of the field. He let them suck honey from a rock, and oil from the mighty part of the crag. The cream of cattle and the milk of sheep, with the fat of lambs and rams of Bashan and he goats, with kidneys of wheat, and it [the congregation of Israel] would drink the blood of grapes [which was] as the finest wine.
Here it is written about how the quality of bestowal and love should be replenished at the expense of Malchut and Bina, that is, the connection of these two properties in a person. The quality of the earth, which nourishes everything, comes from the quality of Malchut. But on the other hand, it happens due to the quality of Bina, which connects with Malchut. This also involves all previous qualities of the inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature that raise a human soul.
The soul accumulates the inanimate, vegetative, and animate levels of nature in itself and in this way it connects them in itself, adding to this the connection with the Creator. Otherwise, these levels would not exist. They exist only because man and humanity are pre-programmed. Therefore, everything feeds on it.
Remark: Only because of this paradise begins: “that they would eat the produce of the field. He let them suck honey…“
Answer: In general, the children of Israel ate manna.
If it were not for the upper Light and the manna that descended with it, they would have had nothing. Of course, one can say: “But they collected something in the desert, they had cows, sheep, lambs. Didn’t they do anything?” No, they acted.
The journey of the children of Israel in the desert is not a constant movement. They stopped and stayed in one place for several years. And then they moved on, as directed by the Creator. In fact, one can get from Egypt to Jerusalem within a week. And this transition lasted forty years?! The reason is that they stayed in every place for years. That is, it is not about allegories, but about the right way in Kabbalah. All transitions are elevations from level to level. And at each new level egoism was added. This means that they traveled some new distance in the desert. By overcoming their egoism, they gave birth, developed, multiplied livestock, etc.
From above they received manna, that is, only the upper force of Bina, which yet had to be used and with its help to extract from the inanimate, vegetative, and animal nature the qualities that would become similar to the Creator.
