Question: Who is more interested in the correction – we or the Creator?
Answer: The Creator. He would not awaken us otherwise.
Question: Then why is it our job to awaken the rest of the world?
Answer: He is the interested one, so what do we care? Well, the fact is that we do not have a choice – the Creator obligates us. He awakens us so we would awaken the rest.
Question: But why didn’t He awaken the entire world?
Answer: We will find out about the entire system and about each person’s role and connections with everyone only once we attain the absolute, corrected system, whereby every person will include this full system entirely within him.
Then you will find out why all the souls have been on this path and have gone through this correction. It is impossible to ask about this now, while we are in the middle of the path. This is similar to the development of a fetus which suddenly grows a hand, then the tongue, then the leg, then a tail-like piece which appears and then disappears, then the eyes appear, and so on. We do not understand all these forms of development.
“Don’t show a fool a job half done.” For now we are fools, which means that we still lack the Light of Hochma, the Light of Wisdom which has to spread through our desires or Kelim.
