Question: The Torah often describes how a shepherd herds a flock of sheep. What does this mean from a spiritual point of view?

Herding sheep inside yourself means that you are building up such desires in yourself, which in the end will be the desires of bestowal, love, and good relations.

Question: The Dead Sea is 400 meters below sea level. In Kabbalah, “400” means four stages of the development of desire?
Answer: Yes, this is the full depth of egoism, Malchut, which needs to be corrected. If we correct egoism in the inner by adding the quality of bestowal to the quality of reception, then this can also manifest itself in the outer: the Dead Sea will be filled from the inside with clean water, fish will appear in it, the desert will blossom!
