Daily Kabbalah Definition
Definitions in the daily Kabbalah lesson guide a precise, spiritual approach to terms, & disqualify materialized corporeal definitions
What is a "Soul" and what is the meaning of the "Body of the Soul"?
The Creator, who is the desire to bestow, created the creature, which is always the desire to receive, who is called simply "body." According to the thought of creation, "body" is what was created on the way from above down; it is "corrupted," and receives the intention of "in order to receive," also called "impurity" or Klipa (shell).
And all this was done on purpose, so that we would be able to correct it with our work, and will be able to switch the intention from "in order to receive" to "in order to bestow." And then this corrected desire with the intention "in order to bestow" will be called the "body of the Soul," and the Light that will clothe it through the law of equivalence of form will be called the "Light of the Soul."
