My Response: Beauty is a vessel for the revelation of the upper light, that is, the greatest revelation of the greatness of the Creator that corrects and fills everything. Therefore, the most important is the vessel.
But beauty is not in how we understand it. Beauty means aspiration for bestowal, for goodness—Ohr Hassadim, light of mercy.
Question: And can a person become such a vessel?
Answer: Of course! And the light of Hochma will burn inside him. It will be truly bestowal, love, and unification.
The light of Hochma is life. And the light of Hassadim (vessel) is the condition of life.
Question: Nonetheless, when they say: “Beauty will save the world,” what is it? What kind of salvation are they talking about?
Answer: That we will begin to correctly evaluate love, the movement of a person toward a person; this will save the world. At the same time, absolutely the whole of nature will change.
Question: So, it will become our value? And then the world will be saved?
Comment: And now it is not in good state? Now beauty is perceived differently.
My Response: I see it like, let’s say, an asteroid or something else the size of the Earth or even a little more is flying at you, and only our relationship with each other will stop and turn it around. That is how I see our state.
