370. HE REPLIES: Yet "Hashem kills." Whom does He kill? The extension of that Other Side, MEANING THE BODY, because, when that extension of the Other Side sees the glorious glow of the Holy One, blessed be He, it instantly dies, and cannot exist even an instant. As soon as the extension of the Other Side is dead and removed from the world, He immediately "gives life." To whom does He give life? To that extension of the Holy Spirit that is derived from the side of holiness, MEANING THE SOUL. He revives it and sustains it in a perfect existence and all is accomplished by the Holy One, blessed be He, at the same time. THAT IS, HE KILLS THE BODY AND REVIVES THE SOUL AND THAT IS WHY IT IS WRITTEN: "HASHEM KILLS, AND GIVES LIFE." And it is written: "He brings down to the grave (Heb. Sheol) and brings up," which means that He lowers that Holy Spirit, MEANING THE SOUL, to Sheol and bathes it there IN THE FIRE THAT IS IN SHEOL to purify it. He instantly raises it and brings it to its appropriate place in the Garden of Eden.
