Answer: In the spiritual world all processes arise from each other, by a chain of cause and effect. Therefore, every new stage is a revelation of the preceding one.
However, until the next stage is revealed, it is completely imperceptible, and it is impossible to examine or picture it. A new sensation, thought, revelation, always comes completely unexpectedly, and a person suddenly begins to understand where he is and realizes that he just received some new state from Above.
Therefore, it is impossible to tell you ahead of time about all the stages that you have to go through, except for what the story about the exodus from Egypt relates to us. However, they all are directed at the unification between us by virtue of the upper force. This is all that can be said for the time being.
All the stages will be revealed depending on our effort to realize them, our attempts to unite due to the upper force, the force of bestowal. It is impossible to sensibly imagine these states based on our verbal descriptions until we approach them. You will feel them when you will be practically ready for them. I can only provide an explanation for the mind of what we go through in our sensations so that the mind puts the sensations in order.
However, if the person still lacks such sensations and impressions, my words will seem dry and artificial, devoid of real meaning. He will have nothing to grab onto, nothing to tie these explanations to. First we need to go through and accumulate various impressions in us.
