66. הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא מַרְכִּיב אוֹתוֹ בְּאוֹתוֹ שֶׁעֵרַב (רַב), וּמְבִיאוֹ בְגִלְגּוּל לְקַבֵּל עָנְשׁוֹ. אִם חָזַר בִּתְשׁוּבָה, הִתְעַסֵּק בַּתּוֹרָה וְהִפְרִיד טוֹב מֵרָע, שֶׁהֵם אִסּוּר וְהֶתֵּר, טֻמְאָה וְטָהֳרָה, כָּשֵׁר וּפָסוּל – בָּזֶה נִפְרַד הָרָע מֵהַטּוֹב, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר בּוֹ וַיִּיצֶר, יְצִירָה לְטוֹב וִיצִירָה לְרָע. בַּתּוֹרָה הִפְרִיד אוֹתָם. הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא מוֹרִישׁ לוֹ נְשָׁמָה מִמֶּנּוּ, שֶׁיִּהְיֶה שׁוֹלֵט עַל שְׁנֵיהֶם, בְּאֶחָד שֶׁהוּא אוֹר – הָעוֹלָם הַבָּא, וּבְאֶחָד שֶׁהוּא חֹשֶׁךְ – הָעוֹלָם הַזֶּה. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב וַיִּפַּח בְּאַפָּיו נִשְׁמַת חַיִּים.

The secret of the reason for causing darkness to come from Light is when the ‘seeds’ (sperms) are mixed with a vessel (egg) that is from the negative side, a Klipa, with ‘foreign’ aspect. The seeds should go into a matching and pure vessel to reveal Light. The reason is revealed in verse from Genesis 2:17
“וּמֵעֵץ, הַדַּעַת טוֹב וָרָע–לֹא תֹאכַל, מִמֶּנּוּ: כִּי, בְּיוֹם אֲכָלְךָ מִמֶּנּוּ–מוֹת תָּמוּת”
“but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it, you will surely die.”
God let us know that if we mixed the good and the bad, we bring the aspect of death into our lives.
The Holy One Blessed be He brings into the mix of good and bad a soul that requires a difficult Tikun process. If that soul repents and follow the righteous path, choosing good over bad, allowed over forbidden, pure or impure, and Kosher over non-Kosher would receive additional support to support and control the soul existence in both worlds, the Light that is the world to come and darkness that is this world.
Man and woman come together to join Light and vessel and bring life into this world. God brings the soul into the body.
Eve sinned with the Snake, and the soul she drew was of Cain. Then she was with Adam, who was pure and brought the pure soul of Abel. Because they made the unification before the arrival of the Light of Shabbat, they ‘mixed’ with the unholy.
The first correction was that Abel was killed by Cain that is from the connection to the Snake.
Abraham brought Ishmael from unification with Hagar; the Egyptian made that Pharaoh gave to Sarah when they visited Egypt. She was not a match or pure enough for Abraham, and Ishmael came with negative traits. Then Isaac came from the pure connection of Abraham and Sarah, and God’s promise to Sarah to have a son.
We should know that even if one side of the unification known to be on the ‘bad’ side, the moment of unification can determine the soul that would come to the world from that unification. If both come together with great selfless love, thinking only about the child, then the soul would be of a higher level. We can see many times different soul coming from the same parents. It means that their consciousness was not the same. Even if the children look like their parents, their souls could be extremely different.
