Between Two Limits

703.04These five lights are the light that the Creator created on the first day. Adam was watching it from the end of the world to its end (Zohar for All,The Rose“).

Question: Why does it say “from the end of the world to its end” and not from beginning to end?

Answer: In our perception, we are between the qualities of judgment and mercy, between two lines. Our whole world fits within the boundaries of these borderline forms.

And therefore, in this context, we cannot see the world from beginning to end. In each state, the world is limited by the boundaries of our Kli, which we are able to discern.
From the 1st part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 11/29/10, The Book of Zohar “The Rose (Shoshanah)”
