Questions and comments:
We are saying that, although the vessels are participants, the real cause is the fact that the light exists in the source...
From the perspective of the vessel, there is light that is a form of energy. This is not sight from the light perspective. Real sight relates to the total reality.
Everyone needs to breathe. Without breath you cannot live.
When you go out and get a breath of fresh air... it is not about the small amount that comes into your lungs... it is about the infinite mass of air that is surrounding. Why should you care about this infinity?! This is because it is the opposite of the guy living on an oxygen tube. You care because this sense of infinity is indicative of the light of life. He senses that life is everywhere, and not based on 'what he has'...!
The light is the connection to the Source of things.
Godliness cannot be described. He is beyond greatness and smallness. Everything is ultimately reflective of the Godly source. Know that all gets its presence and sustenance from Him.
This knowledge was given to us along with our soul. As much as we know of Godliness, it always remains a total unknown.
This can only be received by emunah/faith. The word emunah/faith has the same basis as steadfast. What is ultimately steadfast? Answer: a point without dimension!
The source of the distinction is above the simple light of the master. It is from the root and source of the light.
The light comes from a reality. Reality of the world comes from a source.
