1323 Kabbalah on Giving and Receiving

1323 MK

The desire to give creates a desire to receive. This teaching lies at the heart of the mystical Jewish approach to cause of the creation. Without someone or something to receive, then giving cannot occur. Each needs the other.

As the Source is also referred to as the Bestower because it “must” always give, that which receives must be intrinsic in the giving process. Thus the Bestower, with an absolute “will to give” must simultaneously create a Will to Receive, and this Will to Receive is, by definition, the nature of Creation.(See 1308)
