Will Every Moment
at every moment: Do I prefer external or internal?
of creation is only the desire to receive, and all of the parts of the desire
to receive are connected to each other, such that there is not a single part
that isn't related to others. The internal parts are more important, more
effective, and more active than the external parts, therefore, to the amount
and the inner desires, that are called "Israel" (Yashar-El), yearn for correction, they work and influence all the
other parts. Each and every part of desire, internal and external, is also
divided into an internal part and an external part, and so on.
desire to receive is clothed on all the parts of reality-inanimate nature,
plants, animals, and human beings, which are in this world and the higher
worlds. The more the internal parts will demand more correction, to that extent
they will function in the correct form, more efficiently, and will better
influence all the parts of the desire to receive in reality.
works according to man's choice and preference of internal above external in
life, his business, and in everything that fills and interests him. We ask how
a small man, that lives in this world, can influence in such a way all of
reality and the answer is that precisely he is the influential part. The free
will of man is situated actually in the decision of what to prefer, internal or
external, every single moment of his life.
need to strive to build for ourselves such a surrounding that will make us
always be involved with internal, without problems, without pressure, without
us having to invest strength. In this we will always influence the rest of the
big desire to receive that is all of the reality of the upper and lower worlds.
May everyone come closer to the internal.

Man and Woman
What is hiding
behind the concepts "man" and "woman" as mentioned in The Book of Zohar?
every single soul, in every spiritual vessel, there is a male part and a female
part. The female part is defined as a lacking, a desire that demands
correction. And this part is concerned in enlarging the lacking, of the form of
the lacking. The male part is defined as the power to overcome, the force of
the screen that brings the Light, and the part within us that searches and is
concerned with how to correct the vessel and bring it fulfillment.
soul is called "man" or "woman" in accordance to its
condition: if the female part within the soul grows bigger than the male part
within it, then in that situation it is called "woman." And when the
male part within it takes control over the female part, then that same state of
the soul is called "man." Since the lacking is the feminine part,
then surely that is where the place of weakness exists; there is the holding
onto shells (klipot) and there is the
source of all of the problems that can be. The "man" on his part
needs to hold onto and correct it.
of course, without the lack we have no advancement and therefore, first of all,
we need to have a sensation of the lacking, the "woman." It will be
prominent in the vessel in the goal that there will be for the "man",
work, in other words that he can check what screen he needs to possess on the
surface of the lacking that has been discovered. The desired state is when the
female part is corrected by the male part.
in our world there are two kinds, as a copy from spirituality. But of course it
is forbidden for us to think that The
Book of Zohar refers to this world and about our physical bodies, that according
to this it is speaking at the level of "animate." Rather, the wisdom
of Kabbalah speaks absolutely only about the "speaking" level in us,
about the powers within us, without any connection to the psychology of man and
woman in this world, and that this matter also belongs to the

Daily Kabbalah Reality Check
Examples in the daily Kabbalah lesson elucidate spiritual concepts through explanations of situations in this world
What is the
similarity between the bank's action and the action of the shell (Klipa) in the spiritual development?
over the world people go to work every day, working hard to ensure their survival,
security, and relatives' welfare. Perhaps it is surprising to discover that most
of us agree to deposit our monthly wages in foreign hands, in some system
called "the Bank." What makes us do it?
banks are part of the social systems we built to provide us security. They
promise us a future that we want to hear about, and even make us desire it.
Sometimes they use slogans or facts that try to convince us that they have the
power and confidence to hold their promises, thus confusing us and controlling
us. But no matter-as long as we feel that if we deposit our money with them, we
will earn more than we could before, even a small percentage; banks will
continue to exist and we will all use their services.
in the spiritual development of man, he needs to invest a lot of effort to earn
the reward, to buy the new quality of bestowal and to discover the spiritual
reality. The force that paints man a future profit, that attracts him and
promises him that if he operated upon its guidance, he will have a brighter
future-which is called in the Kabbalists' writings, the "shell".
the shell provides man fuel to make efforts in his spiritual way, but very soon
he discovers the lie-the spiritual reward doesn't come in the future, but everything
happens in the present, the work itself, in the opportunity man receives to get
closer to the Creator and to the attribute of bestowal. After man discovers the
lie in the egoistical profit, the lie that the shell painted for him, he rises
above it and uses it to buy the attribute of bestowal and reach the truth.
