“Elijah opened” (continues)
The Emanator emanates the 10 Sefirot to restrict his Endless light in order to reveal it with the act of creation and the spiritual system.
They are called Sefirot from the Hebrew root word “ספר” (SPR), meaning “book, story, border, count, number”. The Sefirot is a limited form of the Endless.
You should not think of limits here as limited power but as a process that must follow sequence of actions, spiritual and physical in order to bring down the energy to create new in this world.
The 10 Sefirot are part f the system in the concealed worlds, which are Primordial Man and Atzilut (Emanation) and in the revealed, which are Beriah (creation), Yetzirah (Formation) and Asiah (Action).
Without the sefirot the worlds could not receive the light from the Endless.
The 10 Sefirot is also a process the conceal the light of the Endless from the people. Without this concealment, people couldn’t receive the infinite light.
All is surrounded by the Endless light, Bless be He, to connect the Sefirot, the worlds and all the details of creation.
The surrounding light keeps the identity of each individual creation by allowing them to have inner light.
Everyone that by his actions creates disconnection between the Sefirot, separates the light from the sefira and lose its positive beneficent because lack of light draws negativity to fill the space.
