Reincarnations Of Souls In Our Desire
If reality depends on the environment, then what do
reincarnations of souls mean in this context?
souls are changes in the desires. After all, nothing exists but the desire, and
this desire changes. Within this transient desire, we perceive ourselves in one
reincarnation or in the next one, within the intention for the sake of
receiving or for the sake of bestowal.
difference between this world and the future world, between the Creator and the
creation, are all different states of the desire. The desire that is in the
state of bestowal is called "the Creator." The desire that is in the state of
reception is called "the creation."
we perceive within our desire that we are living here, in this world. The
desire will change and we will begin to feel that we are living in a different reality. A
change in the desire determines everything. But, we cannot imagine states in
which we do not yet exist.
for Kabbalists who exist in the desire to bestow as well as in the desire to
receive, both parts of reality are above corporeal life and death, since they
are in control of both types of phenomena in the desire.
a person who has not corrected himself yet goes through reincarnations or
various changes of the desire, until he completes his path by acquiring control
over all the desires, all the qualities that can possibly be revealed.
Revealing The Past In The Future
story of coming out of Egypt is the
revelation of the process of transitioning from feeling our world in the
egoistic desires, to feeling the Upper World in the acquired quality of
bestowal. A person takes his whole household, meaning all his
desires: the desire to receive that is his "wife," as well as his "children"-his
next states, and he tells them about the past.
other words, he reveals the past in the future desires, through this story. He
goes through a revelation, which he performed unconsciously when he came out of
his egoistic desire through the Machsom.
that time, the Creator performed this action on him, and he "ran in a hurry, in darkness," performing
this escape without understanding it. He couldn't even feel these actions
because everything occurred in darkness, in concealment from him.
now as he sits and tells this story, he returns to the same states. He examines
the Creator's actions which were performed on him, and carries out these
actions on himself, on his "household," and on the "children," meaning on his
future states. He repeats the Creator's actions after Him. This is precisely
what is called the story of coming out of Egypt, when the "father" tells his
"son": "Look what the Creator has done with me..."
the Light raised
him to the degree of bestowal, "gave on deposit" (Lavu Elai). With the
force of bestowal which he has now, he can perform the same actions on his own
with the desires that are situated below him (Ve Ani Porea). In this
manner, he repeats the Creator's actions of bestowal and becomes just like Him.
we receive all the forces, Lights, and knowledge from Above. The Creator
teaches us, like children, and gives us everything until we grow up and are
able to carry out these actions on our own. No one demands that we become
adults immediately, but after we receive all the forces and are led out of
Egypt, we are obliged to repeat these actions on our own.
