Question: What does it mean to “raise the importance of adhesion with the Creator?”
Answer: We have to consider which perspective we are using to observe our path, ourselves, and the world: our point of view or the Creator’s? It’s up to us to decide.
If I look at it from my own perspective, then “every person judges according to their own flaws,” and I am unable to see the truth. However, if I see everything from His point of view, which I have to achieve by becoming similar to Him in everything, then from that point I appreciate and see all.
I also begin to understand that love is equivalence of form. I assume all of His nature, and it becomes like my own, above my entire ego, above all the hatred and complete resistance. Only then am I able to understand which desires in me are meant to be corrected.
If I evaluate everything from my own perspective, I don’t see what needs correction, what is important to me at the moment. I can only see it if I am able to detect the end point, as it is written: “The end of an action lies in its initial thought.”
Question: But what prevents a person from seeing the end point?
Answer: He is not dreaming of adhesion with the Creator, he is not concerned about how to bring contentment to Him. This is what makes it difficult.
