Question: It is written in The Book of Zohar that in the Cave of the Patriarchs, Me’arat Hamachpelah, “me’arat,” translated from Hebrew means a cave, there is an entrance to Gan Eden (Garden of Eden). What does it mean?
And Me’arat Hamachpelah is a state a person goes through by combining our world and the upper world and begins to reveal what exists in the upper world in some specific qualities, not completely as it was the case with our forefathers.
Comment: It turns out that all the stories, in both The Book of Zohar and the Torah, come down to the fact that Malchut and Bina are the qualities of receiving and bestowing. It’s like taking our world, which is made of carbon and hydrogen and the connections between them.
My Response: Yes. Plus—minus, together form everything.
Receiving and bestowing are two main opposite qualities of nature. The quality of the Creator (bestowal) is a positive force and the quality of creation (receiving), which He created specifically so that the opposite of Him would exist, a negative force. And on the concurrence, fusion, symbiosis, of these two qualities, all matter exists.
As in mathematics, there is a zero and something different from it, only two qualities and from this state you can build any science.
Question: That is, everything that is described here, you just have to feel it? Otherwise, it will remain in you either as a story or just a dry explanation—Bina, Malchut and that’s it?
Answer: No. It is not just a dry explanation. After all, the quality of bestowal does exist, it is fundamental, the only one that exists in the entire universe, in all the worlds. And besides it, the quality of receiving appears, in something opposite from it.
The quality of bestowal develops the quality opposite to itself, the quality of receiving, and thus creates all the worlds relative to itself until the state when they become similar while remaining opposite to each other.
Everything that exists consists of this. And a person has to find two worlds, equalize, and unite them in himself.
