Where Did I Come
From and Where Am I Going
is no Light with a Kli and in order to advance I must want both of them.
you are working for the success of the group but more and more feel that it is
for the benefit of the ego, you must be happy for recognizing the evil.
my relation to the group despairs me and I tie this relation to the goal, as I
need to do with each and every situation, then this situation transforms into a
correct action. I see that I am an egoist and I can't be any other way, and
then I see that there is none else besides Him, which means that the Creator
arranged this situation for me. It is clear that I need to do it, and from
within the point of this clarification, I must find the way to receive the
greatness of the goal. I need to feel that I am evil, as opposed to what I would
like, as opposed to the Light.
is no Light without the Kli, and the sensation must include them both.
When I have Light and a Kli, I have two points of reference of where I
came from and where I am going. Now I am only missing the force, and I need to
acquire it. And thus this repeats itself from level to level, from state to
state, and thus we advance step after step.

Daily Kabbalah Definition
Definitions in the daily Kabbalah lesson guide a precise, spiritual approach to terms, & disqualify materialized corporeal definitions
Reshimot (Recollections) and Masach (Screen)
What are the
meanings of the Kabbalist concepts of "Reshimo" and "Masach"?
some kind of picture of the spiritual state, which is actually the same
pictures, only it is before its realization. "Reshimo"
consists of the "Kli (vessel)" and the "Light." It
is from the "Reshimo of Aviut (coarseness) and from "Reshimo of dressing," from deficiency on the one hand and from fulfillment on the
other hand. And the "Masach" is what connects between them,
that which makes the "Reshimo" a spiritual state.
For example, in our world there
is a restaurant and an appetite. But I need to bring myself to the restaurant,
to pay money, to receive food, and then to fill myself. This means that one
needs to perform several actions of effort, payment, and only then to receive
the fulfillment. Thus the conditions,
that there is hunger on the one hand and fulfillment on the other hand, is
called, "Reshimo," and all the rest, i.e., my effort, the
payment, and the use is called the "Masach."
Another example: "Reshimo"
is like data that is found on a hard disc on a computer, and when one operates
the computer with a push of the button and the data appears on the screen, that
is already called realization.
