Tikkun 69 – 68
There are 10 Klipot that separate us from the Holy Keter, כתר. These Klipot create the aspect of כרת, it has the same letters of Keter but it means ‘cut off’. When we ‘feed’ the Klipot (shells) with our negative actions, we ‘thicken’ the klipot and their ‘cut off’ power is stronger.
The Klipot serves for the purpose of earning the light. It is like a fruit or a nut in the shell. To enjoy it, we need to peel off or break the Klipah to get to the good part that is inside.
In the lower levels God is ‘dressed up’ in the Klipot (Shells) to stay close to his people.
“וַיַּעַשׂ יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים לְאָדָם וּלְאִשְׁתּוֹ, כָּתְנוֹת עוֹר—וַיַּלְבִּשֵׁם”
“And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins, and clothed them.”
The first sin separated Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden where they enjoyed continuous flow of light.
God created for them and dressed them with ‘garments’ that he made. The two reasons for it is, first to protect them from the upper lights because after the sin and the drop from their position they can not handle the light directly. Second is to be close to them and support them at all times.
“ בְּכָל-צָרָתָם לא (לוֹ) צָר, וּמַלְאַךְ פָּנָיו הוֹשִׁיעָם–בְּאַהֲבָתוֹ וּבְחֶמְלָתוֹ, הוּא גְאָלָם; וַיְנַטְּלֵם וַיְנַשְּׂאֵם, כָּל-יְמֵי עוֹלָם”
“In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the angel of His presence saved them; in His love and in His pity He redeemed them; and He bore them, and carried them all the days of old”
So even if you feel deep in the Klipot, remember that the Light is always there with you. He dressed you with special garments to be close to you. All you need is to meditate on the above verse and feel the warmth of his love.
