Questions and comments:
We are talking about various types of light. Light comes from the source and includes everything – it is neither kindness/chesed nor gevurah/severity.
We have looked at 3 stages of influence from the mentor to the student. There are light, water and firmament.
Yesterday we discussed the principle of sechel/mind.
At its essence sechel already provides a perspective based on reality.
Life is not reactionary or circumstantial. There is an essential positive impulse. This is the sechel/mind element.
The soul is a Godly reality. The sechel/mind reflects this reality.
Sechel corresponds to all 3 levels - light, water and firmament.
Sechel provides the human with reality – soul reality recognized on the worldly level.
