963.4Question: Throughout history there have been and still are people who engage in spiritual correction. Why does this still not free them from suffering?

Answer: The point is that there are private sufferings and common sufferings. A person engaged in correction frees oneself from private suffering. But one cannot be freed from common sufferings since they come from above to the entire group of people, to the whole nation. Hardly anyone can be happy when misfortunes spread throughout the world.

Question: So if a person follows the path of Torah, i.e., achieves closeness with the Creator through closeness with other people, is he freed from individual sufferings?

Answer: Yes, there is no reason for nature to torment him. But since he is one with all of humanity, and suffering descends upon the entire world, he suffers along with it.

565.01Question: Are the spouses’ aspiration toward each other called caring?

Answer: It is everything. You should strive for unity so that every single thing in your environment, utensils, clothes, everything you have in your home, what is called “yours,” unites you.

Here, one should combine the spiritual and the material. You should be so harmonious in everything that even looking at something in the house physically unites you, and you feel it is “ours.” That is something you need to learn and painstakingly attain.

Question: How can I achieve this? Is my annulling in something putting my partner’s desires above mine?

Answer: Naturally, everything is built on the annulment of oneself relative to the other. And this should be constant.

Each one yields to the other, but in doing so, they do not diminish themselves; instead they offer the partner to occupy a more advantageous state and take a step toward them. That is, each acts in a way that the other has a chance to come and turn to them.

Question: But is this not at the expense of the one who yielded?

Answer: No, we are not discussing this from the point of the ego, but are talking about how to get closer.

525Question: I ask the Creator for others from my inner desire. How can I annul my state and ask for the friends from their state?

Answer: To do this you need to step out of yourself, make yourself neutral, tune into the desire of the friend, be impressed by this desire, and turn to the Creator. It is as if you are asking for the friend without including your own inner desires.

Question: Is the quality of each individual’s deficiency (Hisaron) important for reaching a unified request? How can it be cultivated?

Answer: We cannot measure the deficiency of each individual and the collective integral deficiency. The only thing we can do is ask the Creator to unite us in such a way that all our vessels become one collective vessel (Kli).

624.07Question: What determines the ability to do everything you can from the heart without any limitation and with hope that the Creator will respond to our maximum efforts?

Answer: This happens when you are in complete despair and you have no other choice but to turn to Him. You have already asked many times, and you have always received a little, but it was clearly not enough.

And so you pray again and again until you are completely disappointed in your abilities, and you ask as if for the last time, as if you will no longer have any opportunity to reach the Creator, to get close to Him, or to force Him to answer you. You raise your voice to the Creator so that He hears it and finally helps, and then you get an answer.

Question: Should I be sure that I did everything I could, or should I still regret that I did not make the necessary efforts?

Answer: There should be regret too.

Question: What will help us synchronize correctly in the ten in order to imagine the potential of the next degree that we want to come to, and then proceed to action?

Answer: You need to see the present state as much as possible and imagine the future state, how you give everything of yourself in the ten in order to rise to the Creator together.
