According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, we study how the four phases of the direct light spread and develop from the top down until they create us here below in this world.
Now we have to climb this ladder back from the bottom up until we reach our source. This is our mission. Only then will we feel absolutely comfortable in an eternal state in eternal serenity.
