From the condition of Malchut in the World of Ein Sof,
there remains a Reshimo. This Reshimo is composed of: (i)
Dalet de Hitlabshut (information about the quality and
quantity of Light) and (ii) Dalet de Aviut (information about
the force of desire).

Using these two kinds of memory, Malchut carries out the
calculation in its Rosh that it is able to receive the first twenty
percent of Light for the sake of the Creator.

In order to feel the spiritual shame resulting from
receiving, without giving in return, it is necessary first of all
to perceive the Creator, His properties, to feel Him as the
Giver, to see His glory. Then the comparison between His
properties and one’s egoistic nature will bring about the
feeling of shame.

But in order to arrive at this perception, one has a lot to
learn. As the glory of the Creator gradually unfolds, a desire to
do something for Him appears.

To give to the Superior is like receiving. We may also
observe this in our world. If someone has the opportunity to
do a favor to a great person, he will do it with pleasure and
enjoyment.

The aim of all our work is the revelation of the Creator: His
Glory and Might. Once this level is reached, what we witness
will serve us as the source of energy in order to do something
for the Creator’s benefit.

This revelation of the Creator, it should be emphasized,
will occur only when a man has already acquired a definite
desire to use it only for altruistic purpose, i.e., for attaining the
altruistic attributes.

Lesson 2

The first Partzuf that received a portion of the Light is
calledGalgalta. After Bitush Pnim uMakif i.e., being struck by
both Lights, Ohr Pnimi and Ohr Makif, on the Screen at the
Tabur (Navel), the Partzuf realizes that it will not be able to
resist the delights of the Light that presses from outside.

The Partzuf decides to push the Light away. In the current
state this decision does not pose any problem because none of
the delights are felt by the Partzuf.

After the forcing out of the Light, the Screen rises, weakens
and joins the Peh (Mouth) of Rosh (Head). This action is
called Hizdakchut (Refinement).

When, on the contrary, under the effect of the Light the
Screen goes down, its Aviut (coarseness) increases.

After the forcing out of the Light from the first Partzuf,
there remained Reshimot: Dalet de Hitlabshut (information
about the quality and quantity of Light) and Gimel de Aviut
(information about the force of desire). One measure of Aviut
disappeared, because the Partzuf realized that it is impossible
to work with the former degree of Dalet.

According to Aviut Gimel, the Screen descends from Peh de
Rosh to the level lower than that of Aviut Dalet. If the level of
Dalet is Peh of the Partzuf of Galgalta, then the level of Gimel
is its Chazeh.

Once again the Light presses the Screen from above, the
Screen pushes it back, but afterwards, under the influence of
the Reshimot (plural of Reshimo) it decides to accept the Light
up to the Tabur of Galgalta but not beneath.

However, not even the Partzuf of Galgalta was able to
receive the Light under its Tabur. The second Partzuf, which
is now spreading out, is called AB.

Again the action of Bitush Pnim uMakif occurs, i.e. the
forcing out of the Light, and new information, Reshimo, now
fills the Partzuf.
