Answer: We are given a point in the heart so we are not be left in this tiny world, sick, hungry, poor, and mortal. By holding on to this point we can ascend from this world into the Upper World, which is so fair and good.
A point in the heart is like the end of the rope for those who feel like they are drowning in this world, and who want to be saved. Use this rope to start pulling yourself out of this world into the Upper eternal World – you can do it!
Whether you are big or small, the point in the heart is your chance to feel like you live in a big fair world here and now. This is why we need to rejoice when the point in the heart appears in us, because it is a sign of a wonderful adventure, a journey into a wonderful land.
