Start From Scratch

232.03Question: What was the first thing the Creator created before the shattering? You said that before the shattering, the desire was not egoistic. So what quality did it have before the shattering?

Answer: Before the shattering, there was the quality of reception, which was completely under the control of the intention to bestow at the level of Bina. This is called that Adam was in the Garden of Eden.

Then a desire was added that belongs to the quality of Hochma, to the light of Hochma. That is why a shattering occurred when not only a part of the Kli (vessel) that belongs to receiving for the sake of bestowal, but also to bestowal for the sake of bestowal, was broken. Thus, we have to start our work from scratch.
