Questions and comments:
The lights come into vessels (keilim)... the light is what counts – not the vessels.
The light represents the soul and Godly truth.
The light comes from a simple source.
Sechel/mind identifies the Godly truth. On a Godly level, not on the basis of touch or truth.
What is the simplicity of the soul and mind? It's statement is that there is a reality... there is a truth....
A bar daas is not the one who knows everything, but one who knows 'there is something to know'. Lack of daas/sechel, says, “I'm comfortable with this, based on my worldly existince, so I'll do it...”
Light is the essence, not the vessel. But in order to present light, we need to have a vessel for it.
