Different Manifestations Of The Upper Force

610.2Question: We say that there is none else besides Him and that the Creator does everything. At the same time, we say that we create Him by our mutual inclusion. Is it the same Creator or do we just lack the words to designate two different forces?

Answer: These are different manifestations of the upper force. The first manifestation is when the Creator builds, makes, and creates, and there is none else besides Him. The second is when we manifest the Creator in relation to ourselves and talk about the measures, steps, possibilities, and means of attaining Him.

This is completely different since we are already grading Him into levels, steps, and talking about the Creator: the light of Nefesh, Ruach, Neshama, Haya, Yechida, and so on, at what levels, in what properties we perceive Him.

This is not the upper light that created us, but its various parts, which we, to the extent of our similarity to the upper light, snatch from it, feel, and reveal.

But, in principle, there is only one source—the upper light. On one hand, it is how He affects us and on the other hand, how we partially comprehend Him in our Kelim (vessels), to the extent of our similarity to Him.
