We have been saying there are 10 hidden/treasured sphirot. They are intended for internal procession only. And for the king his treasures indicate his royal status.
A king has a treasure. What is it? And what does it do for his kingdom? He is a king with or without the treasure.
King David’s royal lineage is based on essence - not treasure or coronation.
The treasure is an external demonstration of the greatness of the precense of the king. It is the means by which his royalty can be shown. It indicates is unlimited resource.
The 10 hidden sphirot [eser sphirot genuzot] also have the infinite element and the light of the ein sof. The light indicates the impact of the presence.
There is infinity ‘unto itself’ and then there is, by contrast a line/kav… The infinity is reduced to some extent and a new light is seen…
The king wants to reveal his truth. To do that he has to limit his light, so that there is something to identify. This is the contraction/tzimtzum. And by means of this contraction the sphirot come as individual points.
This is a showing of the treasure. It is done in a gradual fashion.
The 10 hidden sphirot are the real thing. You need preparation to see their reality in contrast to the counterfeit. Can you sense the difference between the holy Shabbat and the weekend?
So too after the tzimtzum, the sphirot are reduced, but real and authentic.
