The Rebbe is explaining that the faculties of finitude and infinity are present at the same time, but one obscures the other...
After the tzimtzum Godliness is totally obscured. And before the tzimtzum the element of finitude is completely obscured.
The home, no matter how small, is an infinite presence for the human being. Money, no matter how big, is finite.
No matter your size, you are a Godly creation. His infinity is imprinted in you. This is the infinity within the finite.
And they obscure each other. The finite and the infinite. The finite is also real, and deserves to be recognized on its own, not just as part of everything. But if you only know it, only 'on its own', then something is missing. A thing is real when it accomplishes, 'its thing' in the environment.
