Arrangement of Building the Deficiency

How does one work correctly in building the deficiency so that it brings one to a state of prayer?

Each state that I receive has been designed by the Upper Force that expects me to respond. In the beginning one has to understand that the state I received from the Creator is perfect. This means that there is no better state for my advancement. If I feel the state as bad it means that I blame the Creator, feel that he is not good and bestowing. This means that I don't succeed in locating myself with the group and with the Creator, with the attribute of bestowal. And I don't feel perfection in my state (the current state) and that is exactly what I need to correct so that I feel the perfection (the desired state). This  gap that I discover, between my current state and the desired state, is called "prayer."

This gap is my inner corruption. And what am I lacking in order to close the gap? I am lacking the attribute of bestowal. Without it I can't close the gap. And then I ask the Creator, "Give me the attribute of bestowal, the correction." I feel the opposite of what I am supposed to feel-completion!  And after I have arranged all these things, then and only then I turn to the group and see how I can work with it so that it arouses me and directs me correctly to the goal. The group is the means, but first I must arrange correctly my clarification, group, Creator.

Daily Kabbalah Definition

Definitions in the daily Kabbalah lesson guide a precise, spiritual approach to terms, & disqualify materialized corporeal definitions

 

Adam (Man, Human)

What is Adam in spirituality?

Creation is composed of the desire to receive and the form of bestowal that we need to clothe on the desire to receive. The concern that our desire to receive will have the attribute of bestowal is called "Adam." From the beginning, all the forms are found within the desire to receive and all the Lights are found within the Light; so, what actually is new here? What's new is that which is born between them, the Adam that is born on the border between them, and will want to connect correctly between the Lights and the Kelim (desires). But prior to that, he needs there to be a difference between the Lights and the Kelim, that there will be concealment also on the Lights and on the Kelim. And then he begins to connect from each and every degree, a little Kli and a little Light, until Gmar Tikkun (End of Correction). This form will be Adam, who is connected from both the Kelim and the Light. This means from "existence from existence" and from "existence from absence." Actually all the increasing of the Lights and all the increasing of the Kelim are givens from the beginning and what is not given is the correct connection between them, the form of Adam. We need to examine each time this form and demand that it will exist. And this happens if the person is included in the group, in the correct environment. Then he receives the desirable form. He has nothing to learn the desired form from except from the environment, because if a person wants to join the environment and fulfill his role, his place, then the environment describes the person like a patterned form. Thus the breaking of the Kelim and these attributes exist so that the person can look for his place and each time to be worthy of this work until he reaches the completed form of Adam.
