Sefira Daat (knowledge) in the spiritual structure is a special combination of feelings and reason. Feelings come from Bina and reason from Hochma, and how is it possible to work even higher than that? How can we even grasp the very edge of this principle in order to move forward with it in spiritual life?
If we want to approach new tools of perception, we must work not on our feelings and mind but only on getting closer to our friends. If I want to understand and attain something by taking one step forward in spirituality, I am not looking for how to do it in my mind or feelings. I will not be able to learn this from a book or learn it with my senses but only in a way of coming closer to my friends.
This is the only practical action that we can perform to correct the system of Adam HaRishon. Spiritual connection with my friends in the ten will open new Kelim in me and gradually shift me from reason to above reason: from the material Kelim of this world, the earthly mind and feelings, to the spiritual Kelim. And they are revealed only by overcoming obstacles, indifference, and internal separation from the friends, from the ten.
The more I open my heart and seek connection, the more I understand the saying: “It is not the wise who learn.” Attainment depends not on knowledge but on the Kelim that start to connect more and more. After the shattering, we are all divided, but to the extent that we want to unite and get closer, we produce corrected Kelim within which we feel new spiritual concepts.
So I train myself to move through spiritual changes and not to seek more corporeal reason and psychological sensations. I demand only connection with my friends, and by correcting the Kli of Adam HaRishon, I begin to understand what an integral spiritual system is, what was in Adam HaRishon before the shattering, and where we are heading now.
We discover the upper force, the Creator, and the wisdom of Kabbalah within ourselves and do not gain book knowledge. This is why Kabbalah is called inner wisdom.
