243.03Question: Should a person necessarily learn through mistakes?

Answer: There is no other way since comprehension is possible only when you understand two opposites in combination.

You must simultaneously perform analysis, separation, synthesis, and combination. It is only when you do all that you get an understanding of what is going on.

Otherwise, there are no feelings. The fact is that I want to feel something I do not have. It is not in me, and I have a negative attitude toward it. When I receive it, then I feel it in me.

But, it is in me. There is me with my desire and something that fills this desire. Then, two opposite objects know what one without the other and one with the other mean. It is what comprehension consists of.

It is the same in our world, everywhere, in everything. That is why we always give children a variety of exercises and present them with all sorts of difficulties so that they collect, build, and develop.

115.05Question: How can you explain what the upper world is to a person?

Answer: It is impossible to explain. I can only say one thing: what you are feeling right now, you are feeling in your desires. Your current desires are very, very small.

You can feel the upper world only by expanding your desires through connecting them with others. That is, you unite all the hearts and all the minds of the world next to the desires within yourself to realize these desires. And so does everyone.

Then every one, having gathered the whole world within, connects with others. And then, representing the union squared, each one connects with everyone once again. That is already the third spiritual degree. And there are 125 such degrees. In other words, it is the multiple incorporation of souls embedded into each other.

Imagine what a powerful feeling one achieves when you simply absorb everything that the world can absorb, all hearts and all minds. And then it all increases by the square power, fourth power, and so on.
Thus, a collective consciousness forms—the common soul, Adam. And its power has no quantitative expression.

562.01“He who comes to purify is aided.” This means that one should always be in a state of “coming”  (Baal HaSulam, Shamati 131 “Who Comes to Purify”).

A person should always check whether he has something to turn to the Creator with.

The Creator is only waiting for a request for correction. This is a pleasure for Him, this is the best state for Him.

Therefore, as soon as we find out what needs to be corrected, we need to check ourselves and turn to the Creator.

Question: What does it mean: I have been aided to get purified?

Answer: You are helped from above by being pulled up.

243.01Question: How can you verify the authenticity of bestowal when habit becoming second nature brings it to automatism?

Answer: Bestowal cannot be brought to automatism because to perform the act of bestowal one must halt the automatic act of receiving and reorient oneself.

Question: If bestowal seems very sweet to me while the egoism in which I exist seems bitter, what is my work in the heart?

Answer: The work is in making egoism appear so bitter to you that you no longer wish to be in it.
