Energy of the Upper Light

294.3Know that before the emanated beings were emanated and the created beings created, an upper, simple light had filled the entire reality. …

It refers to the light that expands from the Creator Himself. Know that all the names and appellations that appear in the wisdom of Kabbalah are not at all in the Creator Himself, but only in the light that expands from His self (Baal HaSulam, Study of the Ten Sefirot, Vol. 1, Part 1, Chapter 1, “Restriction and Line“).

The Creator is the source of all there is. What is emanated from Him is called light.

It is not about our physical light, but about the emanation that comes from the Creator. When a person begins to feel the influence of light on himself, the light acting upon him gradually makes him similar to the Creator. That is, light carries a special energy, a special quality and the one it influences turns into some semblance of the Creator.

This is expressed in the qualities of a person, which he suddenly begins to feel in how he changes and in how he depicts for himself the surrounding space, our world, the upper world, and so on.

These are the qualities of bestowal and love that he receives from the influence of the upper light.

Question: Does it mean that he gradually begins to love everyone?

Answer: Yes. He begins to feel absolutely all the universe around him and feels that he belongs to it because one single light creates all this. A person who attains the upper light reveals everything as one single work of light.

His love, first of all, is directed to the source of light, to the Creator.

Question: So, when a person studies TES, will the quality of love for the Creator eventually be revealed in him?

Answer: Possibly. This is how it should be, but not right away.
From KabTV’s “The Study of the Ten Sefirot” (TES), 8/14/22
