The Left Line

What is the meaning of the left line?

The left line is the egotistic desire in which I want only to enjoy, only to receive, and only to fill myself. As a result of its operating is this manner, it helps me by awakening me in an incorrect way, and then it’s called “the left line.”

But if I know how to work with it correctly, then I discover that it is really counter help since in all situations it always turns me, always pushes me, and always pulls me. Thus, if I identify it correctly and if I am very sensitive to it, always suspecting, asking why it suddenly awakens in some places, and to where it is pulling me, and why I suddenly want something or think this way or another, then in this, I am already using it in order to advance.

Middle Line

The middle line is our connection with G-dliness. Its size depends on the extent to which we connect the two attributes together- reception and bestowal, right and left, substance of creation and intention of creation. All the attempts that a person accumulates in his spiritual work are recognized in the development of this middle line. This is the vessel in which a person receives the Light, this is his Soul.

The Kingdom Of Heaven

What is the kingdom of heaven?

“The Kingdom of Heaven,” is a state of the desire to receive when all of it has been corrected, in Ein Sof (Infinity), from the side of the Creator. It is when the entire desire to receive is for the sake of bestowal. It is to this state, from the side of Adam (man), that we must reach; that is, from below to Above. Then the two states combine as one.

Returning Ligh

What is the meaning of the Kabbalistic term, “Returning Light”?

Man’s tendency to return the same pleasure and goodness to the Creator that he feels when he receives from the Creator, as well as to return his attitude, is called “Returning Light.”

It is not possible to reach “Returning Light” without some feeling of receiving from the Creator. The created being cannot perform any action without reaching some kind of contact with the Creator since the created being can’t be a supplier of the Light. He can’t be the bestower in the sense that he has something to give. However, he does become the giver because the Creator brings him pleasure and reveals that He loves him. Thus, it is possible to transform the receiving of pleasure to bestowal to Him, in return.

This is to say that if a person arranges his pleasure so that it will be aimed toward the Creator, so that he will receive pleasure for the Creator, then this is called that man returns the pleasure to Him. And so man is actually using all that comes to him from the Creator, both with pleasure and with love. Without these two things, the created being is not able to return anything.

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.

Connecting The Worlds

How can we bridge the spiritual and corporeal worlds and connect the two together?

Each person has to arrange himself in corporeality according to the demands that Kabbalists make: to be married, employed, and arranged in the general framework of this world. This is a necessity, a law that cannot be broken. “Without sustenance there’s no Torah.” When my corporeality is arranged and I come to the study, this corporeal, beastlike world does not exist for me. During the study I am connected with my friends in order to reveal the Creator.

If I try to reach equivalence of form in this world with the spiritual world then both of these worlds connect.
