Fundamental Concepts: a Framework

Q: Everyone ascribes a meaning to his own to life and death, to Light, to the soul etc. How does Kabbalah interpret them?

A: Let me clarify a few concepts:




In spirituality, time does not exist! Creation is eternal.


The desire to delight the creature.

Creature, soul

The desire to delight in the Creator, in the sensation of the Creator, in the Light.


The fulfillment of the soul by the Light, the sensation of the Creator.


The exit of the Light, the disappearance of the sensation of the Creator from the soul (as a result of the disappearance of the intent “for the Creator”).

The reception of a soul

An acquisition of desire (to enjoy “for the Creator”), with which it is possible to sense the Creator.


The desire to enjoy with the intent “for the Creator”; the holy vessel, the spiritual vessel, the corrected vessel; the vessel of the soul, which can feel the Creator.


(Heb. Reception)

The science that explains how to gradually receive a complete soul, meaning complete adhesion with the Creator.

Our world

A state lower than spiritual death, below the sensation of the Creator. Located under the left side of the impure worlds of ABYA (Atzilut, Beria, Yetzira, Assiya).

The birth of the soul, acquisition of life

A passage from the sensation of our world, to the sensation of the Creator.

Reincarnation, cycles of life and death

The constant entrance and exit of Light in the vessel of the soul, which continues throughout the correction in the worlds of BYA.
