Hence there is no such thing here as “above” and “beneath” “right” or left”. I find it especially noteworthy that I have not come across a mapping of the 10 commandments to the 10 Sefirot, so I mapped according to the most obvious and in accordance with the natural array. Medieval Kabbalah depicts a linear descending hierarchy of Divine vitality, the sefirot emerging from the Ein Sof to enact Creation.

Underlying this functional structure of the sefirot, each one possesses a hidden, inner spiritual motivation that inspires ssefirot activity.

Kabbalah World Center – “The Teaching of Ten Sefirot”

You have already been fully instructed on the point that similarity or equality of phase engenders the unity of spirits, and therefore likeness of phases unites all worlds with their Origin.

In this manner, the eyes of those without faith are blinded to the Light of God; hence, the Light becomes darkness to them. Thus, every person whose study is easy must dedicate a portion of one or two hours a day to study the Halachah Jewish code of lawsand explain and interpret the questions in the literal Halachah.

Just as separation of tangible objects, or their unionis accomplished either by removing them from each other, or by bringing one part nearer the other, in space, so with spiritual entities is either separation or union achieved through transformation which severor affinity which unites one phase with another.

Would you even consider that such a person would be able to understand even a single issue in the Torah correctly? He wrote that the Torah begins with Sod secretmeaning the revealed Torah of Assyiawhich is considered hidden, since the Creator is completely hidden there.

Everyone knows and feels that the Creator is good sefirlt that it is the conduct of the good to do good. Instead, He performs wondrous and plentiful good, always and forever, in a way that repentance from love and the turning of the sins into merits come as one.


Part of a series on. The different realms Tikkun sevirot characterized by lower lights and stronger vessels. When it is by itself, without the Light of Wisdom, it is defined by the figurative name of “empty atmosphere”, for it is void of the Light of Wisdom, and yearns most ardently for the latter to be drawn into it, so that it may be filled with it. Alternative configurations of the sefirot are given by different schools in the historical development of Kabbalah, with each articulating different spiritual aspects.

The original reference to the sefirot is found in the ancient Kabbalistic text of Sefer Yetzirah”The Book of Formation”, attributed to the first Jewish Patriarch, Abraham. Now they sefirott as clothes that extend from the world of Atzilut or Beriaand they do not cover or hide The Teacher.

Remember this on seflrot your ways. Yet, this refers only to those who are half unworthy and half worthy.

And one who does not believe that he can attain that through his efforts, for whatever reason, is necessarily in disbelief of the words of our sages. All this is explained in the definition of the word “arose”. This is because It is extended from the Substance of the Creator and has the same tranquil static nature.

Yet we recognize them as being the work of one God, with one purpose, with unified plan of action for the world. In retrospect, he made a grave mistake; hence, he uproots these sins. They are the ones who see aw testify that the Lord is good, as our sages say, that He created the worlds to do good to His creations, since it is the conduct of The Good to do good.

Kabbalah: The Ten Sefirot of the Kabbalah

The love of God is necessarily given through these qualities, since they were only imprinted in humans for His name to ddez with. Disappearance or vanishing of anything until it is no more, permutation, change – all are utterly impossible in the spiritual realm. Through this exertion of wisdom ,the Light of Mercy is amply extended. It comes to a person by opening the eyes in the Torah.

The author therefore emphasizes that the hollow space left there after the restriction was circular; he conveys the idea that there was no absolute end or limit, but rather that kind of end which we find at the exact centre of a circle.

Yet, despite all our commentaries proving the likeness and identity of both Light and Vessel, the existing diversity of phase caused the creation of the worlds, in order to reveal the perfection of His Deeds, His Names and His Appellations.


These three attributes are discernible in every person. However, he certainly needs to labor. Thus, all these crude dresses that the Torah is clothed in, in this world, their value is not at all inferior to the Light that clothes it, but quite the contrary. It constitutes the third discrimination. This diminution made it impossible for the vessel to receive anything but a very small measure, or line, of Light, according to the capacity of its will.

The Ten Sefirot of the Kabbalah

When all things are fixed and exist in the End less World, in all their perfection and beauty. Not only do they not emerge from concealment of the face to disclosure of the face, since they did not set their minds to labor and attain it, the Torah that they accumulate greatly increases their concealment of the face. For this reason they are called Taamim of Torah. Thus, all four discernments, WYS World, Year, Soulwith all their modes of sustenance, which were in the world of Atzilutcame out, were imprinted, and manifested in their image in the world of Beriaas well.

Thus, this Middle Point remained a vacuum, not worthy or fit to contain the Light, whereas the three prior phases, which are of consecutive degrees of merit and clarity, are still fit to contain the Light, even after the restriction. For that reason, Rabbi Elazar, son or Rabbi Shimon, teaches us that this is not so. Can I not keep the whole Torah in all its details and intricacies without this knowledge? So, for example, “The Long Visage” is said to descend, and become enclothed within the lower Parsufim.

The second extension, which is defined as the third stage of the will. We wish to particularly emphasize that this identicalness of “He” and “His Name” makes for infallible unity, and is one of the most wondrous and astonishing powers of the Creator. And thus they cause poverty, looting, ruin, killing, and destruction in the world, since the spirit of the Messiah leaves, the spirit of holiness, the spirit of wisdom and understanding.

After its correction, during the disclosure, the concealment is to the disclosure as a wick is to the light that grips it.
