The Creator constantly awakens a person by revealing descents and sorrow for the Shechina. One should approach all the descents and ascents from the right perspective: What should I be sorry about, and what am I in fact sorry about?
I have to make an analysis and gradually, with the help of the Light, aspire to the intention of bestowal. Previously I waited for the Light to become revealed to me, but now I want it to change me.
Really, there is no point in waiting for the Light to suddenly start shining. The Creator is everywhere, but we lack equivalence to Him in order to feel Him.
That is why it is necessary to make an order for one’s corrections: how to relate to oneself, to one’s environment, to the teacher, and to the place of the Creator’s revelation (the Shechina), which one must create together with the friends and prepare it for the presence of the Creator. Gradually it becomes clear that all the troubles of every person in the world are aimed only at correcting the Shechina.
This is the only thing we should be concerned with. It is sufficient to take the Shechina to the first degree of the 125 degrees of correction and the Creator will immediately be revealed to that degree. He is at rest and His revelation depends only on the degree of our similarity to Him.
