Question: Initially, there is no quality of bestowal in creation, therefore we try to play it. All the Sefirot except Malchut are bestowing. However, when we play at bestowal, for some reason we feel emptiness, like the dark side of Malchut. Where does all this come from?
Answer: It happens because we are still in the process when Malchut is not corrected. First, we must raise it to the level of Bina to soften the quality of reception—Malchut, with the quality of bestowal—Bina.
When these two qualities begin to merge, then we will be able to work clearly with the connection of Malchut and Bina, which is to receive for the sake of bestowal. Thus, we will be receiving from the Creator but for the sake of others. This will be the circuit of light in nature.
