Growing Up In Spirituality
A Kabbalistic group is the AHP of the Upper One, Malchut that incorporates many other souls in it. I'm the lower one, and my task is to connect my point in the heart to those other souls even though they are foreign to me. If I annul my point in the heart relative to the Upper One, it turns into my GE (Galgalta ve-Eynaim) and thanks to the Upper One, acquires a form. The Upper One gives it everything it needs for growth, providing it with the structure-meaning, with all the souls, the entire World of Infinity, the whole vessel of the common soul.
If you want to become a spiritual object (Partzuf), adhere to the Upper One, and its AHP will become your newly revealed world. To the measure that you cling to the AHP of the Upper One, your point in the heart expands, thanks to the AHP's parts.
To adhere means to accept its rule over me, as Baal HaSulam writes in the article "The Freedom." The AHP of the Upper One is my environment. By clinging to it, I receive from it everything I need, much like an embryo receives blood, oxygen, and nutrients from its mother. I do so in order for my point in the heart to grow into a spiritual organism.
This organism will resemble whatever I received from the AHP of the Upper One, the group. Yet, it will be its manifestation in my point in the heart, my spiritual gene. In other words, it will be shared by them both, the group and my own point in the heart. This is similar to how a child looks a little like his mother and his father, yet receives his essence from the Creator.
I pass myself into the "hands" of the Upper One; I introduce my desire into it, my demand to become the part in which the right and the left lines unite and realize the act of bestowal. To the extent that I accomplish this, that is, to the extent to which the semen annuls itself before the mother and obliges her to develop it, the mother starts taking care of it in return.
