From the Creator to the Creature

Q: How many worlds separate the soul from the Light?

A: Here is what happens from above downward:

  1. The four phases of “direct Light.”

  2. The birth of the world of “Ein Sof” (infinity).

  3. The first restriction of Malchut.

  4. The birth of the world of Adam Kadmon (AK).

  5. The second restriction.

  6. The breaking of the screen of Malchut.

  7. The creation of the worlds: Atzilut, Beria, Yetzira, Assiya.

  8. The creation of the soul of the First Man (Adam HaRishon).

  9. The breaking of the soul into pieces.

  10. The descent of the pieces to our world.

  11. The development of the souls by descending to our world, to our present state.

As you can see, the way down here is very long, but we can already come to certain conclusions about the nature of creation, the attributes of the Light and the vessel.
