Question: If man chooses the Creator every single time, then how does it differ time after time?
Answer: A new desire, a new degree comes every time, and everything starts from the beginning. Yesterday some things made you sad and certain successes made you rejoice, but today everything starts anew, as if you were returning to the same point, and there is nothing you can do about it.
What happened, did you not already figure this out yesterday? But no, new subtleties of understanding are being added today.
