Shavuot is an event symbolizing reception of the Upper Force in our hands, in our world—its revelation, the opportunity to use it for out benefit, for spiritual ascent. We arm ourselves with this Upper Force, Upper Light, in order to bring the world to perfection.
The Creator is at the top of Mount Sinai, and the people are at its foot, so Mount Sinai, the egoistic desires of the people, divide them from the Creator. By realizing the method of correction, the Torah, the people and all the nations of the world following them will rise up the mountain to the Creator.
Receiving the Upper light, the Torah, results in hatred toward egoistic desires. That is why the achievement of this state is called Mount Sinai—the mountain of hatred.
The light of the Torah is the only means to achieve the quality of bestowal and to this extent receive fulfillment from the Creator. For this, there are 613 corrections in the Torah, which are filled with 613 lights. Both are called the 613 commandments of the Torah. This is how the general desire of man gets corrected and becomes a soul.
Reception of Torah is preceded by the state of Omer, a small state when one accepts what comes from the Creator with no objections, to give the Creator pleasure from himself. In this way one becomes ready to receive the Creator’s light and shines with the Creator’s light himself.
Likutei Halahot. Hoshen Mishpat. The Commandment of Mutual Guarantee:
The Torah and Commandments can be observed only in Mutual Guarantee, where each one is responsible for the others. Hence to receive Torah, it is necessary to unite in the aspiration where each one is responsible for others. By that they become one desire and with the Creator.
If each person worries about himself, then there are many of you. But if you worry about the collective, then you are as one, in one desire to the Creator, as He is to you. This state is readiness to receive Torah, the light of correction from egoism, to reveal the Creator between you.
Sanctity appears in a place from which a person has removed his egoistic desires. Then the upper light, the Creator can shine there.
However, the presence of the Creator, the light, is possible in a place where corrections of ego-reception to bestowal still haven’t occurred to the extent of a person’s desire to attain the quality of bestowal.
