Garments of the Soul: There are three types of people: the tzaddik - the righteous one, ruled by his good inclination; the rasha - the wicked one, ruled by his evil inclination; and the beinoni - the "intermediate" one, ruled by both (berachot 61b).

 

The present maamar explores the difference between tzaddikim and beinonim through the backdrop of two Biblical tales involving spies - sent by Moses and Joshua respectively. To explain the differences between the two, the maamar moves to the eternal, spiritual manifestation of the story in which man "sends spies" to assess and conquer "Cannan" - the body and animal soul - and transform them to holiness, "the land of Israel."
