“In Light” p77

We are talking about ohr/light.  Light is intangible.  Its effect is profound.  You can be in light, but you cannot grasp it.  

Then can be levels of less and more light.

Chochmah/wisdom has more light.  bimah/understanding has less light and more keilim/vessels. 

The vessels affect the light.  More vessels, mean less light.  

Chochmah receives the light from above - from ratzon/will - which is not affected by keilim//vessels at all. 

When there’s an increase of vessels the light is reduced. 

The bimah/understanding covers or hides the chochmah/wisdom.  Chochmah/wisdom it the point - and when you have the point, there is nothing more to be said. 

Thought also uses language.  And references.  it is not the reality itself.  In thought the language is referring to the real thing.  but in speech you have to be descriptive…  you can’t speak on the level of light/ohr.  Malchus corresponds to speech and epitomizes keilim/vessels.

This is why speech has a special challenge.  A well structured and presented speech might obscure the point.   in thought that is not possible…

“Down To The River” p77


Chochmah is a state that lacks vessels… there is no ‘grasp’ and translation.  It is a direct apprehension.”

We are talking about how it is above and how it is in the soul/psyche of man.

At the level of chochmah/wisdom, there is much light and a scarcity of vessels. 

The level of bimah/understanding has more vessels and definitions.  It places the concept in a context - it turns it into a ‘thing’ - something identifiable. 

At the time of giving the Torah everyone was seeing the voice.  They could see what is usually heard.  i.e. binah was at the level of sight.

The more we ‘understand’ the more the miracle and wonder of life tends to be obscured from us.  

It says ‘in the future He will lift His hand over the river’ - the river is binah/understanding - this indicates the revelation of the inner element of Torah… 

This will be the revelation of chochmah/wisdom in binah/understanding… this is like the splitting of the sea was a preparation for the giving of Torah.  Before the giving of the Torah there was a need for the splitting - sea is the element of kingship/malchus which hides within it the lights of atzilus/essence.

And giving of Torah is the revelation of the essence.  So too in the future with the revelation of the inner element of Torah - the essence of wisdom/chochmah will be revealed.

“Much Light” p77


Chochmah is a state that lacks vessels… there is no ‘grasp’ and translation.  It is a direct apprehension.”

We have covered the distance from ratzon/will all the way down to emotions/midot.

In chochmah/wisdom there shines an overwhelming amount of light…

All the human functions and activities are in fact there because of man’s identity… he lifts food to his mouth, not our of convenience, but because he is a human being.

This is called ohr/light.  

And the real difference between a man and an animal is at the chochmah/wisdom level.

Chochmah is a state that lacks vessels… there is no ‘grasp’ and translation.  It is a direct apprehension. 

And any vessels that exist are in proximity to the light…

The level of binah has more vessels and less light. 

Yet still it looks for what is higher than it.  Binah appreciates the point/light and brings it down to a functional level.

“Up & Down” p77


It is a source of error to think that intelligence is based on experience.  It is the living soul that provides intelligence.”

The lights land up being vested in keilim/vessels and thus have an element of up and down… 

The lights unto themselves don’t have ‘up and down’ - each light is a source.

When the light of the soul is dressed into the body, the faculties have an orientation of ‘up and down’.

Chochmah/wisdom is primary and receives light from the source. 

It is a source of error to think that intelligence is based on experience.  It is the living soul that provides intelligence. 

Essential love is not an emotion.  it is higher than that.  it is ratzon/will. 

The soul appreciates certain things - this is a way to understand will/ratzon.

And what does the soul want/appreciate?  The soul wants what he is.  Not selfishly.  He is a Godly creation.  


Man appreciates the reality of the world.

“Love & Awe” p76

The love and awe in the heart affects the reality of the animal soul…”

The love and awe in the heart affects the reality of the animal soul… it gives the animal soul a feel for Godliness and thus its coarseness and lowliness is weakened.  

The love and awe can go further and even nullify the material focus of the animal soul. 

Thus one should not be satisfied with purely intellectual work/avodah… rather there should be work in the heart too, and thereby the animal soul will be affected.

Indeed there is a great superiority of mind/mochin over midst/emotions, due to the way mind seeks not personal experience, but the reality…  There is greater revelation of light in sechel/mind… 

Godliness can only known by dedication… there’s a First Being… He is not an answer to a question… Godliness is truth unto Himself… only mochin/mind can begin to apprehend this level…

By contrast midot/emotions immediately relate to ‘some type of impact or effect’ and thus the light is reduced [relative to how it is at the level of mind/mochin].
