Comment: You once said that from a spiritual point of view, food is the light of Hochma, and intention is the light of Hassadim. When a person chews food, he seems to divide all desires into different particles.
Answer: He adds an intention to the desires.
The upper light, which is the light of Hochma, the light of pleasure and fulfillment, comes to a person only when he is prepared to receive it in accordance with the quality of the light.
The light carries the property of bestowal, love, and connection, an anti-egoistic beginning. If a person can react to his anti-egoistic desire in the same way, then this opens the way to the upper light, which can fill him, bring the feeling of the Creator, the higher nature, and expand the boundaries of our world. A person begins to feel that he is already appearing in the upper world.
