His Name Are One
the extent you bind the group to yourself, the greater the vessel (Kli)
you create for revealing the target.
you see in this world is part of your soul. We learn that the soul of man is
what he feels, and inside it he feels his own reality, himself, and all he can
imagine. Starting from the "Breaking of the vessels," Tzimtzum Bet (Second Restriction), the vessel is divided into several layers in which the
person feels that there is "me" and there is something outside me. In
the breaking of the vessels, the gap between the self and what is outside it
became the gap between the self and what I hate, or whatever I want to exploit.
That is, a sort of blindness was created, where the distant vessels seem as strangers,
different, and even contradictory to me.
work is to understand that we need to connect these vessels by bestowal and
love. We connect, each for himself, the vessels that seem external, and they
become our internal vessels. That way we reach: "He and His Name Are One."
Creator arranged that there will be other parts in the "Speaking"
level around me that I can use. By the "other" vessels, I feel
jealousy, lust, respect, hatred, etc. I
need to arrange these parts, each in its place. It all depends on the manner in
which I arrange the others towards me so that they can assist me. I can arrange
the group in such a way that it gives me a guarantee, that it helps me. By that
I turn the force of the Breaking into an assisting force, and by that I should also
is an internal work only, and its importance is the importance of the goal, and
the goal cannot be achieved without connecting the group to me. If you connect
your group to you, you have a vessel to reveal the target.

Daily Kabbalah Definition
Definitions in the daily Kabbalah lesson guide a precise, spiritual approach to terms, & disqualify materialized corporeal definitions
Restriction, Light of Hassadim, Light of Hochma, Complete Zivug
is the "First Restriction," "Light of Hochma,"
"Light of Hassadim," and "Complete Zivug"?
How is it possible to reach them?
Creator created Malchut (Kingdom) of Ein Sof (Infinity) which is
filled with endless Light, endless Light within the desire. Afterwards, the
more the creature felt the Light, the more he felt the difference between
himself and the Creator. And so, he made a condition called the "First Restriction":
"I am not ready to feel the Light of Ein Sof; only if I will
resemble the Creator, only on this condition, only to the extent of my bestowal
to the Creator, will I be willing for His Light to be revealed."
this state, the Creator and the creature are opposite each other, and the
creature communicates with the Creator only to the extent that he resembles the
Creator, to the extent of his adherence to Him, to the extent that he wants to
bestow to the Creator. This bestowal
from the side of the creature is called "Light of Hassadim" (Mercy).
And the Light of the Creator that is discovered in the creature according to
the extent of the bestowal, of His Light of Hassadim, is called
"Light of Hochma" (Wisdom).
so from this, in each person the Light of Hassadim operates above the
egotistic desire that is disclosed within him, and as much as he shows the
Creator that he resembles Him, then to that extent the Creator is revealed to
the person. This game was already
determined in the First Restriction.
There the Creator supposedly "said": "Okay, great, now I
will lower you to the state of zero, and from the state of zero, from
corporeality, you will live like a beast and will begin to raise a little
desire for spirituality for yourself.
Then gradually on the surface of this desire for spirituality that rises
in you for Me, you will make a correction of Hassadim. Actually I will
perform the correction, but only to the extent that you want it." This means that the Creator gives a person
all the conditions to be really detached from everything, except for bestowal.
when man is within the corporeal desire, this beastly desire, he needs to give
it up in order to resemble the Creator in some way. This is the state that we
are in, the first degree. And when we rise above it, this is called that we
cross the Machsom (The Barrier). And then man enters the coarseness of Shoresh (Root) where he is already connected to the Creator. Afterwards he goes through
the coarseness of Aleph (First), Bet (Second) , Gimel (Third)
, and Dalet (Fourth) , as he goes through the worlds of Assiya (Action)
, Yetzira (Creation) , Beria (Creation) , Atzilut (Nobility) and Adam Kadmon (The Primordial Man).
And thus he covers everything with the Light of Hassadim. At this level, the Light of Hochma is
completely revealed, the Light of Ein Sof, and this is called, "Complete
Zivu" (Uniting) between the Creator and the creature.
