What is “shame” in spirituality?
“Shame” is the discovery of that same place from which it is later possible to attain adhesion, i.e., the Kli (vessel) from which it is possible to work. Shame is discovered a little at a time, at each level. If it weren’t revealed, it wouldn’t be possible for us to perform spiritual work.
We are not speaking about shame in reference to the desire to receive since there is no shame in anything that the Creator created. However, we are speaking about spiritual shame when a man is aware that he could have performed something by himself and didn’t; that is, shame is discovered as a situation that depends on us and we discover that we don’t want it. Also here, the desire is from our side.
This means that an actual void is discovered, an empty space of which I am the owner and can perform, but I don’t do a thing, for reasons of my own. Shame is a state. It’s a Kli that is very complex and includes within me many levels. It has its own essence, and so when we reach the end of this sensation, it is already called “shame.”
It is not simple to discover it, since it is the real Kli, the Kli that was built on top of all the other, previous Kelim that arrive from the Creator, from the Light, from the transgressions, from the despair, after exertion in all kinds of things, and from the Light that Reforms. And then after all this process, man begins to discover this additional Kli that is called “shame,” and then he discovers fulfillment 620 times greater.
