Training and learning

AyinBase with R' Paltiel 7/9/2010 Friday 27 Tammuz 5770 

Click on the herring (in tool bar on the right) to see text.

Page 33 – Just above mid point of the page. Line starts “bepnimiut...”

there are 2 levels of makif – de ohr yashar and de ohr chozer. The first has an element of hamshacha, of which some can be drawn into fulll comprehension.

The second level does not come to the level of revelation/hamshacha at all. It is in a state of hidden concealment (helem achar helem).

This is the element that is not possible to be revealed. The animal can be trained to do things that appear to be human – what ever the animal does has nothing to do with its essence – he doesn't relate to it. The animal may know certain facts, but will not have an overall perspective.

A man learns to walk because he has a chochmah, but the essence in the nefesh will never be revealed.
