In the hidden faculties there is no particular order. They are all representative of the source. This is unlike the way the revealed faculties work.

For the revealed faculties the element of mind/mochin is revealed first. This refers to the emanation of the element of wisdom and understanding (chochmah and binah).

And from these come the midot/emotions.

Only when the effect of the chochmah and binah is reduced, are the elements of emotion (za) emanated.

This is due to the fact that the emotive sphirot are drawn from and receive impetus from the higher sphirot.

The dining room table is preceded by the dining room.

The context precedes the thing.

You have compassion on another, because you have a sense of the reality of life.

For light to be in a vessel, it needs to have a clear demarcation and self identity.

“Equal Representation” p:46

We are talking of 2 types of faculties – revealed and hidden.

Revealed functioning faculties have a root. They are rooted in the concealed faculties.

Your faculties and abilities (writing, walking, talking etc) were not born at the level where they function. They originate at a level closer to the essence.

The hidden faculties are beyond process. They are drawn from the essence of the soul.


They have no gradations. They all are equal representatives of the soul/nefesh.


On the revealed level there is a sequence – there are gradations. First comes the revelation of mind/mochin.

What is so unique about mochin that it facilitates the revelation of all the other faculties? Mochin/mind is like sight. It is knowledge of the reality, in contrast to the faculty of touch. Sechel/mind has to do with how things are unto themselves.

“Soul Powers; Choose Life!” p:46

We are talking of 2 types of faculties – revealed and hidden.

Revealed faculties need an environment/context.

Hidden faculties seem to be 'self sustaining'.

You have hidden faculties that do not depend on external expression. They are completely within the soul.

You can lose sight of life, which is a Godly element, and not worldly at all. Life is what sustains the world. This is beyond comprehension, but we can recognize its importance and presence and how to treasure it....!


In the world anything not known on the basis of experimentation is dismissed as 'just imagination'. This is criminal.

Mochin/mind provides a sense of reality and emotions follow – this is how the revealed faculties work.

The hidden faculties work differently. For them, 'the fire does not need fuel'. They come to expression all at once, without any order.

“More Than Personal” p:46

Questions, comments, or to join our Whatsapp Group:

revelation works in a gradual fashion. First comes revelation of the mind from the soul. Later the emotions follow.


Mochin/mind identifies 'there is something' / 'there is a reality'. And midot [emotions] deal with 'how I relate to it'.

Imagine light that does not have a source. It is called simple light [ohr pashut].

The physical world cannot produce light without a fuel. But light is a Godly principle. And he can create the principle without its vessel, without its means of presentation. This is the light that was made on day one. It was a light to contrast darkness. Pure light.

With this light Adam could see 'from one end of the world to the other'.



Simple light could not stay in the world. It negates the worldly perspective.
