Imitating the Laws of the Upper World

200.01Question: Is there a purpose for non-kosher animals?

Answer: Non-kosher animals symbolize desires that we are not yet able to correct. Therefore, we must put those desires aside for the time being and not use them until the final correction.

In the final correction, they will all rise and be corrected. It is said that the pig will be the most kosher animal. It is just that now it represents the desires that cannot be corrected, and it is not only pigs, but also camels and other animals. The pig is just a symbol.

From a spiritual point of view, there are many different prohibitions. For example, it is forbidden to eat the first fruits from trees for three years; you should not cut the edges of the field, but leave them for the poor because you cannot use everything for the sake of the Creator. And there are many more.

In fact, the Talmud, like all sources, explains the laws of the spiritual world.

Question: If a person in our world eats pork, does that mean something?

Answer: It does not mean anything unless he wishes to become like the upper world at the same time. He does no harm to his health.

Question: But a Kabbalist would not eat pork?

Answer: In principle, this is a very difficult question. In general, a Kabbalist tries to imitate all the laws of the upper world in his mechanical actions, although he treats this completely differently from other believers.

In principle, we are only talking about spiritual work, and this absolutely does not include any physical actions.
