Questions and comments:
We started looking at the principle of keilim/vessels.
We strive to translate what we learn into our own context.
The vessels are a reflection of a fundamental reality that precedes the whole tzimtzum/contraction of light.
In fact the tzimtzum was for the sake of the emergence of vessels. Keilim/vessels are that presence that do not need to communicate any message – they are there because they are there. And then light is brought back into them.
How can something be created without a basis for its creation? This is accomplished by the contraction of the light.
The kav is the beam of light – of the Godly presence – that is shone out to the 'exterior'.
This kav/line is a complete representation of the way things are within the infinite light. In the same way your specific human acts are a full representation of how it is in the soul. This is revelation of the hidden element.
