Being A Man (Adam)
What are the
conditions to attain the level of "Man" (Adam)?
We do not know where we are exactly and
which reality we should reach, because we can examine them only one against the
other. To enable this process we are given two advices, two main conditions,
which are a group and the study from Kabbalah books.
By the group we wish to connect
together. We perform, so called, an action of getting out of ourselves to the state
of "Man" (Adam). A Man is the one connected to others, who is
in the attribute of bestowal. The Kabbalah books bring us the Light so that our
imaginary tendency toward others will become a reality.
When these two conditions are met, we
can attain the level of Man (Adam), who resembles the Superior.

Daily Kabbalah Definition
Definitions in the daily Kabbalah lesson guide a precise, spiritual approach to terms, & disqualify materialized corporeal definitions
What is the meaning of the Kabbalistic term, "Returning
Man's tendency to return the same
pleasure and goodness to the Creator that he feels when he receives from the
Creator, as well as to return his attitude, is called "Returning
It is not possible to reach
"Returning Light" without some feeling of receiving from the Creator.
The created being cannot perform any action without reaching some kind of
contact with the Creator since the created being can't be a supplier of the
Light. He can't be the bestower in the sense that he has something to give.
However, he does become the giver because the Creator brings him pleasure and
reveals that He loves him. Thus, it is possible to transform the receiving of
pleasure to bestowal to Him, in return.
This is to say that if a person
arranges his pleasure so that it will be aimed toward the Creator, so that he
will receive pleasure for the Creator, then this is called that man returns the
pleasure to Him. And so man is actually using all that comes to him from the
Creator, both with pleasure and with love. Without these two things, the
created being is not able to return anything.
