Daily Kabbalah Definition
Definitions in the daily Kabbalah lesson guide a precise, spiritual approach to terms, & disqualify materialized corporeal definitions
does it mean to be in "the middle line"?
In the wisdom of Kabbalah we learn
that there is Direct Light that comes from the Creator and Returning Light that
we need to return to Him. This means that the Creator wants us to behave
towards Him in Returning Light as He behaves towards us in Direct Light.
However, with Him there is the desire to bestow. We need to be in the intention
to bestow since we are the desire to receive.
It turns out that we are opposite to
the Creator in desire and can be similar to him only in intention. Thus each
time man's desire grows, he becomes opposite to the Creator, and when he
corrects the desire with the intention to bestow, then he becomes similar to
the Creator. In this way man is constantly in two states, in two lines. His
principle work is to constantly try to be in the middle, and not to pay
attention to the states that his sensations go through, but to constantly want
to be in maximum adhesion to the Creator. This is called that he is in
"the middle line."
