Light creates the world. But as we know light it is an intangible presence. We think of light as revealing existing objects. But objects are not based on their physical existence. A table has a presence not due to its 4 legs and a board, but due to the human spirit – this is what holds it up.
So too, a human being. What holds him up? It is his spirit – his chochmah that holds him up. That is the strength behind everything else...!
we must realize that the life is the real thing that everything represents. The life element is the human being – not his bodily structure.
So if life is a spiritual reality, how does it relate to the physical world? There is no physical world – it is a creation – God gives it a reality.
You get up and walk because you want to. This is the Godly spirit. You base your life on meaning, not on feeling. If you base your life on feeling, you collapse into nothing...
Chochmah is a specific light, and kav is the basis of worlds in general.
The kav is the Godly light – the Godly presence... it is the force that creates everything in the world.
The kav remains connected above to ohr ein sof, and thus retains a quality that precedes the tzimzum...
