196. A Grip for the Externals
We should know that the Klipot can only get hold in a place of deficiency. But in a place where there is wholeness, they flee and cannot touch.
Now we can understand the issue of the breaking: it is written in several places that it concerns the separation of the Light of Wisdom from the Light of Mercy. In other words, since a Parsa (division/partition) was made between Atzilut and BYA, the Light of Wisdom can no longer come down. Only the Light of Hassadim, which previously contained Light of Wisdom, has now been separated from the Light of Wisdom and came down. Thus, they still have the powers they had had before, and this is called “lowering Kedusha (Sanctity) into the Klipa (shell).”
