I'll see what I can do. As I noted above, "if I don't work, I don't make money." Granted, at the time I was describing Tohu and Tikkun. But the matter is more than mere mashal. I'll try to get back...

Beginning of Shaar ACHa''p, I think. If that's not right, I'll have to hit the books. If I'm wrong, I'd like to know about it!

I can't force you to agree with me, obviously. And I didn't come here to argue with you. Your definition of the word plugta, in this context, is incorrect. You're welcome to your own interpretation,...

I don't think I hit anybody. You asked a question. Two people have now provided an answer. You don't like the answer, but don't propose an answer of your own. If you are determined to define Plugta...

It is clear that the language that some mekubalim used to describe concepts in Kabbalah differs, even drastically, from language used by other mekubalim to describe the same concept. For example,...

Tuesday is right: you're making mountains out of molehills.

The MR says that according to the Arizal, Kesser isn't "called by the name Ratzon." He doesn't say that Kesser is not Ratzon. That is,...

I do not believe, for an instant, that the objections of those who were referred to above are based upon the sources you mention. Thank you, however, for bringing point and counterpoint.

The concern about marrying someone whose parents kept taharas hamishpachah is not something I understand. It may be that people with that confused deah were born of parents who did not have taharas...
