Torah, Exodus, 24:12 – 24:14: And the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to Me to the mountain and remain there, and I will give you the stone tablets, the Law and the commandments, which I have written to instruct them.”
So Moses and Joshua, his servant, arose, and Moses ascended to the mount of God.
And to the elders he said, “Wait for us here until we return to you, and here Aaron and Hur are with you; whoever has a case, let him go to them.”
This is about the separation of various levels of governance. There is the same separation within a person as there is in society. There are common people, Levites, Cohens, and Moses within him. Yet, only the point called Moses enters the uppermost contact with the next level, and then the ascent begins.
It is written, “I will give you the stone tablets, the Law and the commandments.” The point called Moses gets included into the next degree that starts from the inanimate level (Domem – stony level, what is called Lev HaEven, the stony heart) and surrenders to the upper force that carves the commandments on it. This is the work of the Creator.
Moses is unable to carve on his heart (on the level of Lev HaEven) the words of the Torah, that is, the spiritual commandments that represent the ten Sefirot, the most corrected and most profound ones. After all, the basis of the next degree is the correction of a person on the deepest egoistic level.
