Increased his joy—this is the level of the Rosh of the Upper (the head of the Upper). That is, Hesed turned Hochma that Abraham merged with, is called the great one. And joy rests with him, meaning, the right line—Hesed (mercy). (The Book of Zohar)
There are three Upper qualities in us: Hesed, Gevura, and Tifferet, below there are: Netzach, Hod, and Yesod. Hesed rises into Hochma, Gevura into Bina, Netzach into Hesed, Yesod into Hod, and so on.
The three points: Cohen, Levi, and Israel always entail a gradual development. These are our inner qualities that have nothing to do with people in this world.
Any person, regardless of nationality, race, or affiliation, if he works internally on himself and wants to reach similarity with the Creator, egoism begins to manifest in him, as well as the property of the Creator, one line, then the second, and the third, with which he builds himself up. Therefore, this guidance applies to every person on Earth.
Question: Can a spiritual state of “rising Israel” occur to any person, whether he is Chinese or German?
Answer: Sure. The middle line is the similarity to the Creator. There is no such nationality—”Israel.” This is an artificially created nation based on the spiritual principle of “loving your neighbor as yourself.”
This was the call with which an ancient Babylonian priest and philosopher Abraham gathered the nation. Those who joined him wanted to advance using the quality of love and bestowal. Therefore, in our world, they have become what is called the people of Israel.
But, in general, any person who strives, with the help of the two qualities of nature, receiving and giving, egoism and altruism, to the Creator is called Yashar El, Israel.
