We have been looking at the metaphor of mentor and student. The point is to investigate the effect of the tzimtzum/contraction on ohr/light.
Light is always connected to its source. So how does the contraction/tzimtzum affect it and thus enable it to come into the world in a way that it will be constructive?
The mentor has the light in a way that is beyond presentation. But he can identify certain specifics the he can present to his student.
These specific details are totally illuminated by the light and via these particulars the mentor/mashpia can present the sechel/light to the student.
This is like the 10 sphirot and the inner intent of the One that emanates [מאציל].
As a result of the emanation of the 10 sphirot the intent is expressed.
This is so He should do goodness to His creations and they should recognize His greatness.
This is inner motivated. It is due to His will, not due to solicitation from elsewhere or from below... He started the whole thing....!
The 10 hidden sphirot are like the details that are hidden within the mashpia.
