Lesson Highlights

  • Three types of desire that reside in all people, which are the difference between one person to another
    • 1.    Body desires (physical lust), animalistic, material desire
    • 2.    Desire for honor, control
    • 3.    Desire for wisdom (Spiritual)
  • In essence, every soul has a desire to receive but the fact that we come from the endless, our true desire is for the sake of sharing
  • The end of an action always exist in the beginning
  • Seed, process, and manifestation
  • Shabbat is the seed AND the fruit of the week

Lesson Description

In Chapter 3, pages 48-49 of the book The Thought of Creation, Rav Ashlag explains the three kinds of desire, which are further unveiled by Eitan Yardeni through the exploration of the concepts of vessel of direct light and vessel of returning light.
