Sukkos draws down the light of the High Holidays

Sukkos draws down the light of the High Holidays:[1]

During the High Holidays, we draw down revelations of G-dliness for the coming year. This is likewise drawn down during the festival of Sukkos. The only difference is in regarding the method. That which was drawn down during the High Holidays in a mode of awe and reverence is drawn down again on Sukkos, with joy and exuberance. This particularly applies during Shemini Atzeres. Sukkos is a time of revelation of Or Ein Sof of Yom Kippur into the heart. It is however only in a way of Makif and hence is hinted to in the Sechach of the Sukkah which is also a Makif. On Shemini Atzeres however it is drawn down internally.
