Question: The cause-and-effect descent of the upper forces comes from the side of the Creator. What is the cause-and-effect chain that goes toward the upper forces from the side of the creation?
Answer: It is correction of our desires by the intention to bestow. This is how we climb the same degrees, by which our soul descended from the Creator to the corporeal world. By correcting our desires, we elevate our soul back to the Creator.
