The second book of Moses in Hebrew is called שמות Shemoth (“names”), but was translated in English as “Exodus.” It recounts the escape of the archetypes of Israel from slavery in matter, "Egypt," thus it explains symbolically how souls return to the "promised land." 

All of the Monads depart from the absolute abstract space in order to manifest in the universe, and in Kabbalah this transmigration or dispersion is called "exile" or diaspora. This is why many Kabbalists state that the souls here in this physical world are in exile. Exile or diaspora means the dispersion of the names (שמות Shemoth), the archetypes, from the absolute (the Ain Soph) into matter (Egypt, the wheel of samsara). Therefore,  Exodus or Shemoth means the return of the names, the archetypes into their proper place in the Absolute.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Let us think for a moment of the humanoid multitudes that populate the face of the earth. They suffer the unspeakable. They are victims of their own errors. If they did not have ego they would not have those errors, nor would they suffer the consequences of such errors. The unique thing required in order to have the right to true happiness is, before all, to not have this ego. Certainly, when psychic aggregates, the inhuman elements that make us so horrible and evil, do not exist within us, then the payment of Karma is non-existent. Thus, the result is happiness."
