212. Embrace of the Right, Embrace of the Left

I heard on Kislev 8, November 28, 1941

There is the embrace of the right and there is the embrace of the left. And both have to be eternal. This means that when one is in the state of “right,” one should think that there is no such discernment as “left” in the world. And also, when one is in the left, he should think that there is no such discernment as “right” in the world.

“Right” means private Providence, and “left” means Guidance of reward and punishment. And although there is reason, which says that there is no such thing as right and left together, he needs to work above reason, meaning that reason will not stop him.

The most important is the above reason. This means that one’s whole work is measured by his work above reason. And although he later comes into within, it is nothing, since his basis is the above reason, and so he always sucks from his root.

However, if, when he comes into within reason, he wants specifically to be fed within reason, at that time the Light immediately leaves. And if he wants to extend, he must begin with above reason, as this is his whole root. And afterwards he comes to the reason of Kedusha (Sanctity).
