What is the desire for 'His kisses' especially when the full glory of the souls will be revealed in the future?
The kisses will be when there is a revelation of the mashpiah/mentor in the lower worlds. Sechel/mind is not the real experience in contrast for midot/emotions. The midot are the real person. This shows that their root are higher – in the crown/kesser itself. sechel/intetells is just a ha-arah/reflection. On the other hand if the emotions are rooted so high then what are they lacking? As it shows itself at different levels it loses its authenticity... it is a translation, coming through a narrow conduit... they are representative of essence.
The purpose is to see that when there is revelation of nishikin/kisses then what comes through is not just, 'that it is rooted above', but the reality of the source itself – full revelation, not just allusion. The essence itself. That comes through as a result of the revelation of the ha-arah.
Kisses are where the essence comes through 'unaltered'. It is a statement that 'we are one thing – we are united'. The 'intent' is what essence represents.
