is a dream and how does it connect between a person and the Light?
the wisdom of Kabbalah, the word "dream" is defined by those spiritual states
where the desire has a very weak connection to the Light which is revealed
before it─ in it, a person uses only the
smallest part of his great vessels because only on this part does he have a Masach (screen) which
allows for receiving the Light of bestowal. Only such a use of will power
enables one to identify the spiritual reality inside his vessels─his relation with the Creator.

Who Dismisses, Dismisses His Own Flaw
How does the distribution between what is
inside of me and what is outside of me help me with my spiritual development?
It is known that every mother always sees her
children as the smartest, most beautiful, and successful kids in the whole
world. On the other hand, if we observe her attitude towards the neighbors'
kids, we will obviously see a totally different attitude. In fact this phenomenon
exists in every one of us-the attributes that belong to us get a different
outlook, one much less critical than attributes outside of us are scrutinized
with. Even if I hate certain characteristics in me, laziness, flattery,
shyness, etc., I try to give them some sort of excuse: "no choice", "it's part
of me," or "I will have to put up with it," etc.. However, when I see these
characteristics in others, in those that are outside of me, it is met with
eruptions of anger and great hatred. These characteristics are magnified when
they show up outside of me, to the point that I want to tear them out of their
The Wisdom of Kabbalah tells us that all of
reality takes place within a person, and that it is divided in to "internal"
and "external." What is felt as internal are usually desires, thoughts,
tendencies, attributes, and physical and emotional sensations, and what is felt
as more external are others.
In that case, why was reality divided into
"internal" and "external," "I" and "others;" if everything is really taking place
inside of me?
Because in what is "outside of me" and
doesn't belong to me, I have a natural tendency to discover negative
attributes, and to treat in a more critical matter, a "cleaner" matter. On the
other hand, the attributes that belong to me, for the most part I try not to
expose in this manner, the interaction with others helps one understand and
clarify the negative attributes in him in a sharper and more powerful way. With
experience, man reaches the conclusion that, "all who dismisses, dismisses his
own flaw"-all the attributes that are despised by him out there, are in fact
The wisdom of Kabbalah tells us that the
division into these two forms, of relation to internal and external, are to
allow a person to reveal the true property of the Creator, the property of love
and bestowal, through revealing man's opposite properties-the property of
reception for oneself. His attitude towards what is "inside him" suits the
property of reception in him. On the other hand, his attitude towards what is
"outside him" suits his attitude to the property of bestowal.
Man's inability to love what is outside him
like himself, reveals to him the gap between him and the Creator who loves and
bestows to all without any thought of Himself. This brings him to the request
to be released from the shackles of the property of self-reception. In this way
he acquires a new property, and discovers with it, a new reality in which all
people are connected in one desire and in love for one another.
