Don’t Wither in the Ten

528.01The Creator gives a point in the heart and brings a person to a ten where he falls into the hands of his or her friends and feels safe. In this calm state, one begins to “fall asleep.”

And what should you do? You must take on some work in your own or in the world group and do it with all your might; otherwise, you will drown and wither in your ten.

Question: How can one come to a state where one person is responsible for the whole group?

Answer: When we connect, we turn into one man. This is how we appear before the Creator, as one man with one heart, one desire and one man from all of us together.

Recognize the Qualities of Jacob and Esau in Me

568.01Question: How can I recognize the qualities of Jacob and Esau in myself and work with them correctly?

Answer: Jacob is the quality for the benefit of the friends; Esau is only for his own benefit.

Question: Why does a person more often work only with the evil inclination?

Answer: Because it is our natural work. We consist of an egoistic desire to receive for our own sake. Therefore, in the beginning, the quality of Esau awakens in a person.

The Desire of the Creator

294.4The Creator wants only one thing from us: that we try to come closer to Him. Although it is against our egoistic desires, in the end, we will receive absolute fulfillment.

The Creator wants us to be filled with Him because He exists only in the desire to bestow. Therefore, by yearning to be filled with the quality of bestowal, we are filled with Him, become like Him, and reach absolute adhesion.

The First Two Foundations of The Wisdom of Kabbalah

548.03Thus far, we have clarified the three foundations in the wisdom. The first is the light and the vessel, where the light is a direct extension of His self, and the vessel is the will to receive (Baal HaSulam, Preface to the Wisdom of Kabbalah, Item 17).

The light comes from the Creator and cascades through the system of worlds, Partzufim, and Sefirot as it gradually weakens until it reaches the lowest degree where it is already completely concealed.

The Kli is a vessel that gradually reveals the light, and thus passes it from above from the Creator Himself to the lowest levels.

The second fundamental concept of the wisdom of Kabbalah according to Baal HaSulam is the ten Sefirot and the four worlds.

While cascading from the Creator to our world, the lowest of the worlds, the light passes through ten stages of weakening and concealment, called the degrees of cascading. We study them in order to be able to rise from the lowest degree, at which we emerge, to the highest, which we eventually have to reach. These are the degrees of concealment.

Many degrees of concealment, successively connect with each other, and form a ladder called worlds.

They connect to each other, each ten degrees into a greater degree, then ten by ten into even greater degrees, and so on until they reach the highest degree.

We measure them in different ways. There are dimensions where the whole ladder of attainment consists of 625 steps; there are others with more and less steps. In general, it depends on the way we measure them.

But the main thing is that the highest degree is the Creator, the lowest one is the lowest level of our world, concealment. All these degrees from above downward or from below upward indicate that on each of them there are created beings and the light that fills them.

In principle, there are five main types of concealment, i.e., five worlds, the degrees of which are divided into five, and five more, and so on.
