Forms of Spirituality, Education of Form
What are the forms described in The Zohar and what is "education of form," the correct approach to the study of The Zohar?
If one studies The Zohar without the intention to discover the spiritual form in each thing described, the form of connection between the souls, then this is called, "external study" and Klipa (shell). Then it is not worthwhile at all to open The Zohar.
One must yearn to arrive at a connection during the studies and then from within it, it's possible to discover what is written in The Zohar. If we connect together, then the connection reveals the correct form which is completely different from that which we could describe before the connection. This means that the connection is actually the place where one can see and feel the form, the intentions which The Zohar describes.
Each and every form must be discovered in each and every soul and all of these forms we always discover only in the connection between us because nothing is revealed in the soul itself but only in the connection between the souls. And as a result of the communication between us in our connection together, they then bring us the identity of the Creator. This means the form of the Creator is revealed in the form of connection, and the forms of connection are the same spiritual forms that we learn about.
This approach to studies is called, "education of forms" since its path is attained in how the form dresses in the substance. The substance, the desire to receive, when it begins to connect then it accumulates within it , collects within it, all kinds of forms of joining and combining among the parts. And these forms, all of them gradually, bring us the form of the Creator.
