Everything is contained in the brevity of the mishnah.

And all is included within it - in brief.  All the supporting reasons are contained within it.

Contained in a concealed way.  

Certainly there, but not seen overtly - it does not speak for itself.  and this is the principle of ‘reduction of light’ [miyut ha-ohr].

In binah there is understanding/apprehension - this implies grasp.  The topic is grasped by the person - in a worldly setting…

Chochmah is higher than this.  it is above grasp - above understanding.  Yet, still there is indeed the level of knowing [yediah]. 

A metaphor for this is sunlight.  Objects are ‘just there’ when illuminated in sunlight.  

In the world of understanding/binah the light is reduced, and things are there by means of proof and definition.  

This is like a legal ruling [psak din].  

And inside, the practical level of ‘what do I do’, and the legal ruling, and practical comprehension, light persists.

The level of chochmah/wisdom has more light than binah/understanding.

A situation can be illuminated by the sky, or through a window, or through a small opening… Each type of illumination is different.

Daylight is unique.  The original daylight preceded the creation of the sun!  

Daylight is beyond a finite purpose.  It is light that eliminates darkness.  

Compare that to a room illuminated by light coming through a window.  There the light has a function - illuminate this room…  

These 2 levels compare to chochmah/wisdom - truth as it is in its original state, which is beyond proof; and binah/understanding - truth via a window, which deals with function and purpose. 

Light is present at the most practical level.  Binah and all the ‘back and forth’ of legal ruling [psak] is light on a defined level.  

On the one hand a ruling is revealing the decision, on the other hand it conceals all the preceding argumentation is concealed, but the light concealed…

There is a great amount of light in the point that is the origin of chochmah/wisdom.  The impact of the light is overwhelming.  You see the truth even though you don’t fully understand it.

When the light comes into binah it reduces itself - the light becomes obscured…

Comprehension [hasagah] is exclusively at the level of bimah [understanding].

In binah the light continues to shine - it shines broadly - not as a bright point. 

Sechel/mind [in contrast to the midst/emotions] is self-effacing and seeks the truth. 

The emotions experience reality via a window - it has to do with one’s experience.  The light is present, but reduced and the self is an active element.

We are talking about levels of light.  As always, we need to refresh the topic of the conversation.  What is the meaning of ‘light’ as it is used in chassidus and in a general context.

On the first day of creation there was darkness.  Yet it has a Godly content.  The world is not just worldly.  In the darkness it would be exclusively worldly - only known by the physical presence…

The statement of ‘let there be light’ is saying, ‘I don’t want the world to be exclusively world, I want it to represent something of it’s Creator.  Light alludes to something higher’. 

It is in the world, but light is spirituality translated on a worldly level.

Chassidus focuses on this element: how light bears testimony to what it is about. 

The point is what chochmah/wisdom relates to.  It seeks the point or central message. 

Wisdom is based in the human soul.  If you ignore it you can create all manner of chaos, and stupidity.

In wisdom/chochmah the light shines at close range…

The light is apparent - you don’t need to search for it.

At other levels the light is more concealed - less apparent. 

Chochmah is humble.  It doesn’t format what it sees - it doesn’t take it on its own terms - it accepts what it is shown.

It says, ‘I don’t have what’s mine, I have what I am given’.

‘Up and down’ refer to an increase and decrease in that impact. 

A lower level has  a decrease in light.  

In a worldly context the value of each thing and everything you get is determined by it’s market value - what it can be exchanged for…

Great light means you have abundance of that which you cherish.

That’s why the Baal Shem Tov says, ‘a man is where his will is…’

We are interested in how Godliness comes to the world.  The kav brings the Godliness in a measured fashion.  With the creation of distinct levels…

And each point on the kav carries the original message.

Yaakov and Israel are two names for the same person.

Yaakov/Jacob relates to the level of testimony.

Israel relates to the level of essence. 

This corresponds to the levels of betrothal and marriage/consummation.

Leaving infinity and getting to the line and points is the element of ‘measurement’.  Measurement is based in the light and the vessels.

Initially the light provides the view of multipoint array… and then when it comes to the level of vessels there is specific identification.

Picture a house.  Then it becomes a home.  This is when it has light.  An owner acquires it and the house becomes a home.  And there’s a difference between when the owner is in his home or when he just owns it from a distance.  

This is to identify the difference between ha-arah/reflection and atzmus/essence. 

A reflection extends itself away from the essence and deals with any obstructions it finds.  The essence stays where it is.

In wisdom the infinity is close.  From the level of bimah the level of infinity [ohr ein sof] is further away - it is there, but only at the level of comprehension. 

The line/kav creates the element of measure… and definition… 

The measure of ‘up and down’ is initiated in the light and not in the vessels [our first thought was that it occurs on the level of vessels]. 

The ten sphirot have the element of up and down, whether in the element of lights or vessels….

There’s the influence of both - both the lights and the vessels - in the revelation of the elements of 'up and down'

A line comes forth from infinity.  This is the kav.  It is a sequence of points.  By this means the truth itself comes into revelation… i.e. infinity is disseminated in an orderly fashion. 

It comes to a level of comprehension.  You are able to identify a structure.  

The shirt are separated out distinctly both at the level of lights and at the level of keilim/vessels.

Those that receive light from nearer to the source of the kav/line have additional closeness. 

Ohr ein sof - infinite light is beyond our understanding.  It is a light that represents a principle truth.  It is not based on any parameters.

It brings the principle of essence with it.  The kav/line is a formulation from it… and further along the line, the less strength of representation.

Those worlds that get inspiration from ‘upstream’ are higher.  

What’s the meaning of ‘higher’?  Picture a guy on the ground and another on top of a tower.  The one on the ground identifies the route based on street names etc.  The guy on top of the Empire State Building relates point A and B directly.  He sees it from a higher perspective.

Ohr ein sof is beyond ‘getting the big picture’.  

In the levels of chochmah [wisdom] and kesser [crown] the infinite light shines in a ‘close-up’ manner.  In bimah [understanding] the light shines in a more distant manner. 

Binah deals with ‘putting things in perspective’ even though there’s still the element of infinity.

We are talking of up and down within the light itself.  We said that the kav/line initiated creation for the purpose of facilitating up and down in a worldly context.  

Ohr ein sof surrounds all of existence, but the line/kav does not extend all the way through to the other side… it originates above and comes into the world.

So what makes ‘up and down’.  ‘Up’ implies closeness to the Source and ‘down’ indicates distance from the Source.

World by definition is a precarious existence.  

The kav/line starts above in infinity - in truth - in a level beyond parameters.

A circle indicates the idea of no top and bottom.  The sphere of the earth indicates this too.  

A worldly existence ‘forgets’ it’s connection to reality - it’s connection to the source. 

All matter is being re-created every second.  It persists only because the Source maintains it.

We are discovering how at the level of ‘original concept’ the vessels are superior to the lights.

The light precedes the vessel.  it is superior to it.

But the concept of vessels preceded the light.  It is only at the level of revelation that the light comes first. 

The earth is first in intention.  The heavens are first in the process of creation.

The world begins with the kav/line - the line of lights that establish that there is something ‘higher and lower’ - there’s a sequence and distance.  If the flow of creation had come directly from Source and not via the kav/line there would not have been the element of ‘up and down’ in  worlds. 

If not for the kav/line each world would be equal to every other world.  There would be no distinct sphirot.

‘Upper and lower’:  the line cleaves with the infinite light above.  And extends down into the world.

The Rebbe has been pointing out that vessels attract and draw the light.

This is how it works ‘above’.

All the limbs of the body draw the vitality into them.

The soul is anxious to be vested in the limbs of the body.

This is because the root of the vessels precedes the light. 

The vessels have a higher root.

It happens this way after the vessel is purified.  After purification it draws the light into it. 

The message, ‘you’re just a vessel, you’re not here for your own sake’ is what purifies the vessel/keili.

We said In the beginning of creation that from the thickening of the light the vessels come to be… and the result is that there is then a means to receive the light at the kelli.  

Both vessel and light are creations.  But initially the vessel does not sense that it too is a creation with a purpose.

The Rebbe has been pointing out that the light itself initiates investment in keilim/vessels.

The aim of the light is to have affect.  This is why it identifies the means by which it can be dressed in vessels/keilim. 

If one had said the opposite it would have meant that the vessels create the limit.  

God provides abundance, but all comes through a narrow conduit.  You may think this is due to how the world operates…  But this is not the case.  Everything you get is measured according to what they aim to accomplish, not according to how it works out on the practical level. 


Poem by Yitzchak Bloom:

Light’s Intention Is To Show

Light was created with an aim
Before God even made the sun
And even more before man came
For whom all of it had been done.

It wasn’t “done by accident”
Which evolutionists declare
But designed by Divine Intent,
For mankind to become aware.

So consciousness is not by chance
As God’s creation shows us that
It had been thought of in advance
So it would have to be looked at;

That light itself knows of its task
For light’s intention is to show
Us so that we might look to ask:
“Who made the eyes to see by so?”

Light is the impact of the essence.  This is a super-presence and is not affected by time and space.  Yet, there are situations of more and less light.  This is due to the light being vested in  vessels.

The vessels allow the light to function at lower levels - to function in the world.  

The more vessels the less the light.

This difference in light is not only due to the vessels.

Rather, there is an inherent quality within the light, that senses the need to illuminate differently in different situations. 

Chochmah is like sight.  Sight is a faculty.  The soul has a constant inner life.  Life cannot be turned on and off.  It is continuous.  Sight is measured out to be a particular faculty.  

The soul pre-measures the amount of light designated for chochmah/vision. 

The vessels are created by the thickening of the light.

An increase of lights means a decrease of vessels.  And when the light is diminished you have more vessels/keilim.

Light comes from the soul.  Inherent in the light is the intent to come down and be translated into vessels/keilim.

And the light is measured according to the vessel, in order to enable it.  

Why does the light care about the vessel.

From the coarseness of the light, the vessel is created.  The light descends and the vessel is created. 

Vessels have their own source, but bringing them forth is due to the light.

World by definition is defined and the light is reduced to allow it to surface. 

There are 3 worlds in this process… briah is the highest world - it still has the light of the impact of essence.

It is the first creation… Everything that exists relates back to its source, since nothing exists on its own.

And there’s a difference if the source you relate to is something finite, or the infinite Source.

Briah is a world that relates back to the Godly nothing… this provides a great inspiration, which is like darkness to the worlds below it.

Briah and yetzirah correspond to thought and speech. 

Sechel/mind is way above the level of thought… and definition.  It is an emanation from the soul.  On a lower level it becomes thought and speech - they are creations of the soul in a worldly environment…

Thought becomes speech and enters the realm of time and space - an environment of many vessels. 

The letters of thought are spiritual.  They are not sensed on the outside. 

The world of yetzirah tends towards an increase of vessels/keilim.  

Isiah and Ezekiel spoke of the same thing - the Divine Chariot.  But Ezekiel elaborates at great length… that’s because he saw it in the world of yetzirah [Isiah by contrast saw it in the world of briah]. 

Regarding light, it is the opposite - there is greater light in briah, where there is a scarcity of vessels.

Each section of man - head, body and leg - is a whole world.

The head is the most significant and has the soul quality in greater measure.  The brain in the head represents many qualities - it is a different reality - the faculties are within a context.  They are within the light of the soul.

The light of the soul demands the presence of these faculties.

Then there is the body with its various limbs - the hands and the heart.  And the heart is also a representative of the divine quality in man - and by will of the heart it is superior to the brain.  Nevertheless the body is more physical and more related to kelli/vessel than the head.

The leg is focused on the physical capability.  It also has a soul quality.  The feet have a major effect - they lift the head and carry it where it wants to go - they give the head the effect of universal presence.

The hands and the feet both act in the physical world.  Yet the hands have greater dexterity - they have greater light. 

The soul impact on the feet is minimized.  

These 3 levels tell us of the worlds of beriah, yetzirah, and asiyah…

The first thing that is created still has the ‘nothing’ where it comes from shining within it. 

And thus the world of briah is called darkness - it is the darkness and unknown level from which the other worlds come…

The next world - yetzirah - does not have as much light… but it has more vessels...

We are looking at the principle that there are different degrees to which the light of the soul is manifest. 

There are 2 ways that the desire of the heart is exposed.

One, via meditation on the infinite light that is above the creation [ohr ein sof lemayla mehishtalshalus].

The brain has a recognition greater than what it can understand.

The second type is not by means of meditation at all, but rather it is something from the essence of the soul itself.  

This is the essential point of the soul, which is above the realm of faculties… and this is grasped by the heart… the heart allows it to reside there [the mind by contrast says, ‘tell me what you are about’]. 

It is a direct recognition of the Divine presence, without any concern for implications.  

The deeper you dig, using the mind, the more the light of the faculties of the soul are revealed.  The faculties of the soul need a context.  The context is the light of the soul.  The light of the soul says, ‘this is real’. 

The body, and the legs, are bigger than the head.  And yet in the head is an abundance of light.  The greater the light the less the vessel [keili].

Each world differs in the degree to which Godly light is seen in it.  

The effect of the light of the soul is seen far more in the head than in the other parts of the body.  And particularly in the mind that is located in the head…

Then there is another phase of the soul’s light.  It is called an ‘will of the heart’ [arusa de lieba].  It is not a desire for some kind of experience.  It is a recognition of the significance of a certain truth. 

This is by contrast to the ‘will to survive’.  Survival has to do with the fear of destruction.  This is the will to live.  it is based on a basic truth [not on any threat].  This is based in the heart.

Where does it come from?  It is a divine gift.  He gave man a true presence.  

This is reflected more in the heart than the mind.  

Why?  The mind by nature, tends to identify what it sees.  It has an element of ‘what it is about’.  The heart does not have that tendency.  It needs no explanation.  It relates to truth in a way that is more authentic.  

In this regard the heart has more humility/self nullification.

The sky is a presentation that is beyond description.  We tend to focus on the details and function.  The truth is that it’s truth and function is beyond anything we can understand.  The heart is more able, than the mind to live up to what it is being shown.

Meditation on the light beyond creation opens the way to ‘arousal of the heart’. 

The mind makes the presentation.  But the ability to relate to it is in the heart.  This is like ratzon/will.  

The heart can relate to the truth directly.  Even the stoney heart.

“Aroused Heart” p80


Arousal of the heart - this is a desire of the heart.  It is not based on experience.  It is of the level of will - it indicates value beyond experience.”

The foot is lowest in terms of light.  In the body there is more light of the reality of the soul - the emotions reside in the heart.  

There is one soul.  The light of the soul provides for the entire person, but there is a different degree of revelation of soul in the foot, body, and head. 

There is light/ohr from the soul that is shared and vested in the body.

Arousal of the heart - this is a desire of the heart.  It is not based on experience.  It is of the level of will - it indicates value beyond experience. 

And this takes place in the body specifically.

There are two modes to how this happens.  One is through meditation of the mind [hisbonenut] on the infinite light that is above the whole worldly process and structure. 

You may refer to this as, ‘being drawn to the truth’.

The arousal of the emotions is superficial in contrast to arousal of the heart.  

The heart can relate to the element of truth… this is the vitality of the heart… this is the pure soul element of the heart. 

There is also a level of arousal of the heart that comes not by virtue of meditation, but rather directly due to the essence - this is the essential, central point that is above the whole level of faculties. 

This second, essential level is due to an essential bond between the heart and essence. This level relates to heart, even more than to the mind.  The heart accepts whatever you give it and thus it can take essence.
