The nature of rising upwards is in the light and not in the vessel.


Everything comes from the Source, so why does the vessel not have the nature to return? The vessel does not sense its source although that is where it came from. The light does sense its source.

“Constant Light; Table of Bread” p:72(11)

We are saying that light gives us a better understanding of the 'original thought' or 'original man'. Light continues to represent its source.


Fire does not mix with the other elements.

Just to live like a human being requires discipline. This is to say, 'I want to conform to what my Creator intended for me'. The 'self respect' one has is not about himself, but about living up to what is intended.

We are explaining that 'spirituality and physicality do not really connect, and the fact that they do touch is an ongoing wonder/miracle'. It is not due to their own natures that they correlate at all.

This is like the element of 'fire'. Due to the fineness and 'spirituality' of fire it does not mix and unite with the other 3 elements. It constantly rises upwards, striving to be re-united with its source.

Everything in the world is a creation and has a Source. Nothing in the world is 'original'. Of the 4 elements, 'fire' is most obviously representative of its source... and it constantly points to its source and rises to it...


The nature of fire is that it consumes all lower levels and says, 'there is nothing but the makor/Source'.


The connection between the physicality and the spiritual is a wonder – there is no natural affinity between them.

This 'source' element is the 'light' component of the object. Each thing consists of light (purpose/meaning) in a vessel (actual structure).

The vessel is intended to take its place in the lowly world, while the light remains connected to its source.

These 2 elements are like chesed/kindness and gevurah/severity.

The vessel, like kindness, goes down to be of service. The light which is striving upward is like severity... it does not seek to have a worldly justification... it remains attached to the source. The light rises, to disengage from the world and the vessel settles into the world.

“Constant Wonder” p:72(11)

Page 72(11)

At the last paragraph of the page – (line begins: 'vehinay...') For text, click: Here.

The union of the body and soul is an ongoing wonder...


Not just a miracle, but a proactive miracle. I am alive, not because of the experience of living... but due to His input... a pro-active element.


So the joining of the body and soul is due to His command. Neither body nor soul would relate to the other if not for the Godly command...!

We are trying to get focus on the essential form (tzurah atzmis)...


Everything in the world has something that initiates it. Essence is an exception. It is the initiator.

It has a fundamental reality.

At the second paragraph from the top of the page – (line begins: 've-ayle...') For text, click: Here.

Summary: that which comes from an essence, and comes into revelation, remains connected to the essence. This means that it recognizes that what gives it a real substance is its connection to the essence.


This means that just as the essence is indestructible so too is the light indestructible. So the light is also a reflection of the essence, while it is only light...

Then we began the next discourse p72 (11).

The principle of this discourse is an explanation of how it is that light, which come out from the essence, qualifies as tzurah atzmis (essential form). We discussed it all the way up to adam kadmon (original man).


There are 10 sphirot. They constitute a whole structure. They come from a source that is whole in a sense beyond structure. A source that is whole by essence and not by composition...


Externally this is expressed by 100 and by 10. It has the quality of completeness since it comes from essence which is complete.

The soul of man is above world. It is Godly. It is above any need for support. All the sphirot in the soul are included in the reality of the soul.

The level of kesser/crown has 2 levels – a) 'atik' – how it is in essence and, b) 'arich' – how it becomes revealed...
