622.02Question: What is special about fear that only together with it will the state of love be perfect?

Answer: The fact is that we are egoists and love only ourselves. Therefore we must add fear to where we turn with love.

Each of us should understand that even if he loves someone, it is still desirable that fear and anxiety join this love: What if I do not love enough? What if I do something for him that will make him neglect me? It is not because your egoism is afraid of it, but because you do not want such a relationship between you.

From the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 2/11/24, Writings of Baal HaSulam “Joy with Trembling”

232.06The correction of the sin of the Tree of Knowledge is that we must correct Malchut, which originally received the light of Hochma for its own sake.

Now it has to return to the first restriction (Tzimtzum Aleph) or nothing will work.

To make a restriction, we agree to receive nothing until we earn the screen. Only as we form the screen can we begin to receive light.

Question: Why did the Creator give Adam to taste the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge?

Answer: To raise him to His level.

534Question: The basis of our work is faith above reason. The more faith we have, the more light there is. We should not take the attainment of the lights of the Torah as a basis.

How can you not be impressed by this in your mind so that the ability to work in the quality of faith increases?

Answer: By working only on bestowing to the Creator, you will receive as much as you want.

Question: How can we use the light of the Torah correctly to continue to strengthen faith in the Creator?

Answer: To do this you must hold on to your friends, work together, and constantly raise yourself.

281.02Question: Why is the desire to receive, which should be corrected from degree to degree, in a deplorable state, like dust under the feet of the righteous?

Answer: Because the desire itself is not to be corrected, the intention is.

Question: What is this state in the ten when the righteous in me sees the end of the wicked in me?

Answer: Enter this state and you will see.

Question: What does it mean in the ten when the right side of a friend stands in front of my left side, and vice versa? How to work with it?

Answer: If, even though we are one against the other, we still combine our efforts to get closer to each other, then we get a full interaction.

Question: The wicked always justify themselves. How can we move from this state to justifying the Creator?

Answer: Start talking to each other, and then together you can realize that the only thing you are doing is criticizing the Creator.
