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.

“Home” p101

“You cannot close your eyes to will and delight.  They are a constant.  A living soul has this continually.   It is life itself.“

The home has all the furnishing inherent in it.

Binah/understanding is the faculty that reveals what wisdom/chochmah contains.  To reveal the contents there has to be a slight distraction from the overall light to bring the ‘contents’ into focus.  This is the contraction/tzimtzum.  

Things are drawn from the source… this is called a line - a kav.  It is representing what is contained in infinity - the 10 hidden sphirot [eser sphirot ha-genuzot].

“Will & Delight” p101

Pic by Yermi Emmer

“You cannot close your eyes to will and delight.  They are a constant.  A living soul has this continually.   It is life itself.“

Will and Delight always remain internal to the essence.  They cannot be defined and they are not manifest.

Wisdom, by contrast, is that quality which is already in the realm of awareness. 

You cannot close your eyes to will and delight.  They are a constant.  A living soul has this continually.   It is life itself.

Wisdom [chochmah] as real as it is - and it relates to the truth itself - is already an external observation.   A pure observation, but not the essence itself.  


For wisdom you have to be dedicated, not to your experience, but to what there is to know - to the truth.  

There is a thin line - a ‘kav’ - that comes through after the contraction/tzimtzum.  Contraction/tzimtzum means the essence if reduced - by his reduction, his qualities come into focus…

“Thought Flickers Constantly” p101


“The human being approximates the divine reality.  He has a supreme soul and a low body.  His body is lower than that of animals.“

The human being approximates the divine reality.  He has a supreme soul and a low body.  His body is lower than that of animals.  

Sechel/mind is the emergence of the soul.  It is not a body experience.  It is recognition of the divine presence and truth. 

Thought is due to the direct impact of the soul.  Thought flickers constantly.  Thought is the initial contact of the soul with the body.  

Speech is where the light of sechel/mind is reduced to the extent that it can be expressed with ‘physical’ words. And there’s a constant life-flow in the spoken words.  The vessels [words] are within the context of the light [ohr]. 

Then there is a third level - the written word.  This is an end-point [tchum] where the light/ohr is totally hidden and it is a state of just keili/vessel.

These 3 levels are to illustrate 1. midah, 2. gvul, and 3. tchum.

The written word has great power.  We have written Torah.  

Vessels limit the light.  The light becomes an identifiable presence.

“King David’s Rule” p101


“And how can you limit the expanse of light [and have it relate to a vessel]?“

The Godly element points not to what it is, but to where it is coming from.

The vessel is what identifies the light - to the extent that it becomes a distinct thing [metziut davar].

The house of king David are inherently regal.  They have this attribute  at essence.  When coronated this element becomes revealed - a presence in the world. 

And how can you limit the expanse of light [and have it relate to a vessel]?

Light is constantly emanating from the truth of his presence, yet there is the aspect of limit - they say, ‘till here and no further’.

What gives the vessel the power to limit light?  How does the land limit the power and force of the ocean?

Yes, the world is great.  But it is a creation.  It is a limitless creation, yet it has a particular intent that governs it…
