To Enjoy for the Sake of Bestowal   

What is the meaning of "bestowal" according to the wisdom of Kabbalah?

To bestow is to correct the desire and the intention so that they will be directed towards bestowal and love of others. It doesn't mean that from now onwards I thrust upon others all kinds of things with each opportunity. It doesn't matter if he wants it or not, but to bestow is first of all that I develop myself to this level, that I can feel the deficiency of others as my deficiency and so when I connect this external desire to my desire and begin to fulfill it, then it  becomes mine.

This is called, "wisdom of Kabbalah," the wisdom of how to receive (benefit) for the sake of bestowal. I connect to others to the extent that I feel their desires and they are more important to me than my own natural desires. And then like a mother towards her baby, all of me works only for the other. This is called that all of me is "for the sake of bestowal" for him. The desire of the other becomes as mine own and thus I benefit from it.

Thus, in the end, I reconnect to myself all the souls who were once a part of my "I" and then were suddenly cut them off from me. Now from my soul, I look at them as if I don't want them, scorn them, hate them. I now need to work above this, only to dismiss this physiological rejection. When I begin to relate to them as integral parts of myself that are truly connected to me in every way, then I begin to bestow to them and enjoy.

Nothing else is demanded from a person apart from crossing this physiological border in order to feel that it is just these parts which are his roots where he will discover his soul and the Creator. And then he will feel that his natural desires, i.e., inanimate, vegetative, animal, that previously constituted his world, don't even belong to him at all.

Daily Kabbalah Tip

Advice in the daily Kabbalah lesson is recommended, practical tasks for advancing spiritually

 

Ask for Myself 

For whom should I ask advancement for? For me? For the friends? For the entire world?

A person can't ask for advancement for others, only for himself. On the one hand, if there's a person that I don't identify with or feel connected to, then how can I request for his sake?

And on the other hand, if I am connected to him, I "request" for his sake according to the measure of my closeness to him. But the truth is, that again I am asking for myself, since I ask for him sensing that he is included in me. I feel that he is within me.

It follow that I will always ask from my desire to receive, thus all the requests are for my sake.
