There is a source for existence. There is a point that initiates the chochmah/insight. This is of enormous significance. It is life giving.
We have discussed the table on the floor, supported by the beams, supported by the walls, supported by the foundation, supported by the earth, and the earth is supported by... nothing... it is supported by the Godly will, the Godly presence.
The fact that there are beams and walls etc, does not deminish at all the Godly miracle. They just allow as to feel comfortable, and 'know' how things fit together.
But the Godly will is infinitely more solid than the ground itself. It is recognized by the insight/chochmah of the soul. And all we experience in the physical world serves as a trigger to awaken our insight.
It gives reality to the human being, and to the whole world.
THERE ARE ONLY TWO WAYS TO LIVE YOUR LIFE. ONE IS AS THOUGH NOTHING IS A MIRACLE.
Chochmah is one spark. But it contains infinite information. This is like one glance that contains a vast vista in one instant... Unlike hearing, which is sequential, sight is effortless. You are shown things from a higher, truth perspective...
God made the world, and did not let you float alone. Just as He holds up the whole world in nothingness, so too He holds you up...
Nothing gives a presence to itself. There is a First Being, that continually brings things into existence. Physical life is via breathing. He breathes into you... we allow the air to be pressed into our nostrils... we don't actively pursue life – that's not life. Live is given to us.
Bina is lower than chochmah/insight. For chochmah there are no questions. It just sees. Bina works with structure and explanation. Chochmah does not ask how the earth is suspended. When we says it is suspended by His design, it brings it back home...!
And the joining of chochmah/delight and bina/understanding is continuous... and this maintains the world.
