The third Sefira of The Tree of Life
Known also as Ima (Mother)
The source of life and sustenance for the lower Sefirot
Part of Body: Ears
Bread of Shame
Shame, inability to receive.
Disgrace while receiving a free gift.
Bread of Shame is the main source of problems and troubles in a person’s life. The first condition for human existence and for The Creation is to eliminate the Bread of Shame – becoming A Creator “in the image of God”. That means that whatever we get we have to pay for by giving back, creating Returning-Light and the work in Torah and Mitsvot “Lishmah” (for the sake of unconditional love for The Creator).
Without removing Bread of Shame, we cannot hold any enlightenment, fulfillment, sense of achievement or satisfaction.
