Right Hand - Empathy
The fourth Emanation. The hand that embraces. The healing tears brought on by the forgiveness of sins. Each kindness repaid in kind. Chesed's force pulls humanity together, allowing peace to exist between us. This is the power to look inside the hearts of those around us and see that we are truly alike. Our need for love and kindness is an essential part of our existence and transcends all other differences we might have.
The blue orb's embrace extends across all existence.
Chesed is at the very center of the pillar of mercy, defining its core characteristic and forming an extreme opposite to its female counterpart, Gevurah. The two arms of the Tree extend in opposite directions. Chesed pulls tight so that Gevurah cannot push away. This wresting match cannot be won by either side, yet the struggle itself is meaningful because it is the struggle that defines our morality.
