A spark is like the fire, but not connected to its source.

Light is a guest from above.

Light brings its source.

Light shows its source, not the worldly context.

The spark does not really illuminate.

Light is different from touch. In the dark you can also identify objects. That is happenstance, without the view of reality. You bump into stuff.

Light alludes to, and reveals the reality of an object or a scene. We are provided with a certainty beyond that of touch, even though it is at a distance.

And what is the basis if this reality? Light tells you, 'Hey, this thing is true 'cos God is making it. It did not start here. It began in His initial plan.'

So from within the world yo can know Him.

This is light. This is not based on sun. Or combustion. It is Godly light. This light is true only if it is connected to its source.

The spark flashes. Real light changes the whole fabric of the world, since it is connected to its source.

We want to live. This cannot be grasped. It is beyond conception. It comes from the Giver of life.

In atzilus the vessels emanate from the essence, but do not acquire their own basis.

The vessels do not have a sense of there being another possibility.

A person wants to live. There is no worldly explanation.

It is not within our control.

Only things with definition can be grasped.
