The Meal Is a Hint of Spiritual Actions

506.3Comment: On holidays like Passover and Sukkot, everything revolves around a meal.

My Response: Meals come from spiritual roots and embody receiving the upper light for the sake of enjoyment.

A meal is not just a feast where you drink and eat. The fact is that all holidays have their own symbols and there are various customs around them. But in general, they express the consequence of spiritual actions and are absolutely clearly constructed in accordance with them.

There is nothing in them that we are used to: “Now let’s go, sit down and eat.” For example, everything that is served on the table in the New Year (Rosh HaShanah)—carrots, a fish head, a pomegranate, and so on—are hints of spiritual actions or phenomena.

Nourishment means receiving the highest light and abundance, not just the food that the body needs. After all, we mean the spiritual body, not our physical body.
