A person who wants to reveal the concealed part of the world has to understand that there is nothing standing in his way. The revelation depends solely on his desire.
We exist inside the general, integral system of Nature, and we receive from it at every moment depending our desires’ similarity to Nature, which is unchanging. Nature is always in a state of perfection, whereas each of us has desires or Reshimot that are constantly changing. We experience ourselves and our existence inside these desires to the degree they are similar to Nature.
This is why we feel miserable: because our desires are opposite to Nature. If you aim your desire at becoming more like Nature, then you will immediately feel an improvement of your state.
So, there’s no sense waiting for any changes to come from outside. The positive changes can only take place when you change to become more similar to Nature – to this perfect, unchanging system.
This process is similar to a baby’s relationship with its mother. The mother has everything, and as soon as the baby desires something that’s good for it, it will immediately receive it. But if the baby desires something that’s bad for it, then it won’t receive it and will feel bad, since its desire will remain empty.
Thus, we feel bad inside our current desires because the Creator – the perfect system – does not fulfill them, due to the fact that they are opposite to Him. It is written, “Make your desire the same as His desire” – and then it will immediately be filled.
