A faculty that’s in a vessel has to be a ‘good fit’. The faculty and the vessel have to co-ordinate very closely.
The vessel needs to be a clear channel and not obstruct the faculty.
The vessel [for example the hand] needs to become very accustomed to the input of the skill and inspiration.
This is like the mashpia and makabel [mentor and mentee]. Each has to attend closely to the other.
The vessel is made of material that is relevant. Your mind and hand will not drive a nail. A hammer is needed. This illustrates an inner faculty [koach pnimi].
By contrast a surrounding faculty has no vessels - it affects things by encompassment. It lifts things to another reality.
The student needs to relate to what he hears from his mentor/mashpia.
The mentor cannot just tell the student what he knows. He has to join the student in his world.
