What Is “Sin” And What Is “Woman’s Sin”?
What is "sin" from
the perspective of Kabbalah?
Sin is separation
from the Creator regardless of a person's spiritual level. He might have gone
through 99% of the spiritual ladder or just 1%, but no matter how powerful his
connection with the Creator, if he disconnects from this connection, it is
considered sin. He falls into reception instead of bestowal, where bestowal is
synonymous with connection.
There are several
levels of sin. The smallest sin is when a person separates from the Creator but
does not yet lose his connection or similarity to the Creator. A greater sin is
when the Creator disappears; this means that a person's qualities are opposite
to the Creator. A sin that's greater yet is when a person submerges into
darkness and senses the opposite side of the Creator. But the greatest sin of
all is when a person becomes opposite to the Creator and unites with the
Pharaoh through his hatred for the Creator. Thus, there are different degrees
of sin, from simple distancing to total opposition.
The opposite of sin
is "commandment"-unity, adhesion, closeness. It also has different degrees,
just like the three phases: conception, feeding, and adulthood, which are
degrees of adhesion. Both sin (separation) and commandment (closeness) can only
take place and be experienced in a group because the group is the unity of
desires or souls. And through them, these qualities are felt in relation to the
Creator. All good and evil are measured inside a person's connection with the
environment. This is the only way to check and correct any state (spiritual or
corporeal), and the only way to always preserve and strengthen unity and love.
A woman's sin is to think that
there is no difference between the spiritual work of men and women, and to be
of the opinion that everything must be completely equal, down to erasing all
the differences and boundaries. My advice is to try and develop the inner
feeling of unity and love for other women in Bnei Baruch, even to the point of
loving them. See how much you are capable of this. This will enable you to
understand what nature really demands from a woman: to help and support the men,
because they are capable of attaining the unity of souls.
Becoming A Conductor Of The Light
is much more important than quantity. There is an infinite
variety of plants in the world, but the significance of one flower is equal to
all the still matter in the whole universe. One animal is equal to all the
plants in the world. And one person is equal to all the rest of nature. This is
how different the levels are; they are separated by an abyss.
were to gather all the stones in the whole universe, it would be impossible to
make even one flower grow out of them, because a flower contains life. It
develops, which is a quality that the still level of matter lacks. A person's
development is entirely unique and cannot be understood through a simple analysis.
It would seem that every person has a very small force, whereas in reality,
that force actually has great quality.
an event such as the Congress where we unite produces a very powerful force.
All the stars in the universe are practically worthless compared to the value
of human thought. Today scientists are revealing that our thoughts influence
physical processes, such as the behavior of elementary particles in the Large
reality, our thoughts control all the stars, as well as everything on the
vegetative and animate levels of nature. All of this is the result of man's
attitude, thoughts, and desires. This is why it is written that all parts of
nature are inside man, and there is nothing for us to correct besides our thoughts.
This is how we correct the whole world.
comes into this world through a system called "man," because this system is
higher than all the rest, and the Light expands from above downward. To the
extent this system is united or disunited, meaning corrected or not, that is
the extent to which the Light reaches all the other parts of nature (still,
vegetative, and animate), and it determines how we see the world.
it is written that all of nature is inside a person and it ascends or descends
along with him. If I ascend, I attain a greater connection with others, and
thereby correct the common soul. Through me, a greater Light comes to all of
nature, and thus nature also connects and reaches greater harmony.
the center of all of nature. I am surrounded by the still, vegetative, and
animate levels, but I am the one who determines their correction. When I
complete my correction, these levels will disappear and become part of me,
because they really are parts of me and my own reflection.
