Reading Matt’s The Essential Kabbalah (part 2)

Published by

“The purpose of the soul entering the body is to display her powers and actions in this world, for she needs an instrument. By descending to this world, she increases he flow of her power to guide the human being through the world. Thereby she perfects herself above and below, attaining a higher state by being fulfilled in all dimensions. If she is not fulfilled both above and below, she is not complete.

“Before descending to this world, the soul is emanated from the mystery of the highest level. While in this world she is completed and fulfilled by this lower world. Departing this world, she is filled with the fullness of all the worlds, the world above, and the world below.

“At first, before descending to this world, the soul is imperfect; she is lacking something. By descending to this world, she is perfected in every dimension.”

-Daniel C. Matt, The Essential Kabbalah.
