Good And Evil Waters

608.03Question: Why is the sea that the children of Israel cross called the Final Sea (Yam Suf)? What does water represent?

Answer: Water represents life. This is the quality of Bina, the quality of bestowal and love. A person is born in water, everything emerges in water, this is the basis of life.

However, there are good waters and evil waters. When the water is not free from egoism, it is evil water, evil waves—for example, the Dead Sea or the sea that swallows those who enter it.

The sea that the children of Israel cross is called the Final Sea because there they completely leave egoism and cross the border between the quality of reception and the quality of bestowal.

Question: Is this boundary symbolized by the Machsom, the nominal barrier between egoism and altruism?

Answer: Yes, this is absolutely correct.
