Daily Kabbalah Tip
Advice in the daily Kabbalah lesson is recommended, practical tasks for advancing spiritually
Use What You Have
Don't be afraid to activate your egotistic Kli (vessel) if it is aimed towards spirituality.
All of our actions must begin with corporeality, i.e., I activate myself in the surrounding; I activate the surrounding towards me and I work towards it. It is written: Everything that is in your power to do, do it. Take the opportunities since through them, even without the correct intention, you awaken yourself.
I am within the desire to receive for the sake of receiving, and I turn to the Upper from within my broken Kli because that's what I have. My nature is wanting to take advantage of the environment and the Creator, and I need to redirect this nature into the direction of spirituality, even though I am acting for the sake of receiving.
When I activate the broken Kelim, I work from a broken heart and especially there I find the Creator. I need to deal with desires that I have for the sake of reception, not to be afraid of them, and not to be ashamed of them. I am broken and only from within this breakage can I discover the goal because within the broken Kli is found the point of contact with the Creator. Don't be afraid of discovering evil. The main thing is that this evil will be discovered in a purposeful way.
