Help Against You

каббалист Михаэль ЛайтманIf we want to make spiritual progress, we need the help of an egoistic force called “evil.” In fact, if not for this evil force revealing itself, we would remain in one place having nothing to do. Since the right and left lines oppose each other, they alone cannot help us progress in this way. Thus, we need an external trigger, which is the interference of evil. Its purpose is to push us toward the birth of a new life.

This is what is referred to as “help against you.” It acts by the evil force working devotedly, evoking a chain of states within us. Therefore, a leap to a new state and transition to the Upper Level is impossible without it.

That is to say, everything is ready for Malchut to give birth to new souls, except that she’s unable to do so. In order to achieve birth, the evil must evoke itself in Malchut, giving her an additional egoistic desire. Only then is she able to deliver and connect with the Light on a new level.
