“Blown In” p: 72(3)

AyinBase / Ayin Beis with R' Paltiel 23 Menachem Av, 5774 

Page 72(3)

At about a third from the end of the page (line begins, “makif de chaya...”) For text, click: Here or see below.

The soul was forced into man... that is to say that its presence is not due to its faculties, but that its essence is present. The soul was blown into man – into the body...

Levels of the soul remain in the 'surrounding reality' – makif – these are chaya and yechidah. These levels cause an expansive growth of the sechel/mind and middot/emotions. Success in learning is based on these levels.

The level of chaya brings life to everything.

The soul and the human being is not here to partake of the world. He is here to transform it...

Chaya provides vitality beyond functions and faculty. Beyond understanding, it provides great vitality and a grand pleasure in every thing/topic. This is from a different source than 'world'.

Marriage is a Godly invention. Human beings would never invent it. It is outside of the worldly parameters. The Greek philosophers, conceived of women in their own society and children under common ownership... Marriage is an institution rooted above world.

The reality that sechel/mind alludes to is based on the oneg/pleasure.

For the essence of the soul, all things have to be, 'beyond perfect'. It relates to wholeness. And the soul wants the body to sense the way it sees things...

And the soul does not overwhelm the body. It elevates it...

The joining of the soul and body, is similar to the way the form guides the material...
