Chokmah is a dynamic Sephirah, flowing with unlimited energy and it will be good to get used to seeing it as a channel for the passage of force, of that force that most directly springs from Kether and therefore resembles it. It is defined by the Sepher Yetzirah: – Illuminating Intelligence or Wisdom. It will then be Binah the third Sephirah, who receives his influx of emanation and Binah is the first Sephirah who organizes and stabilizes the force.
