It is said that everyday a person should see himself as if he has left Egypt, which means that he should search for the evil inclination within him in order to need the Torah, the Light that Reforms. If a person reaches this state, from that moment on he begins to live—gets on the right track.
If he doesn’t feel the need to correct himself, if he doesn’t sense the shattered desire inside him (the ego, Pharaoh, the vessels that were taken from Egypt, from the state in which he discovered his evil inclination with regards to connecting to others), then he has nothing with which to come to Mount Sinai. It’s because you come there only to connect.
If we are ready for that, we receive the Torah, the reforming Light, which realizes our connection. With reference to that it says: “You are all here today….” But if this doesn’t exist, there is no point from which it can all begin.
So first there is the simplest work that we can do in our position. It is this corporeal world that enables us to start working because we can do things in it even without the right intention. This is why I connect with others, although I have no desire for that or I try to achieve different egoistic goals hoping to gain something from it.
This is why we were brought into this corporeal world, and from it we begin to ascend. We try to play the spiritual state more naturally each time and thus draw the Light that Reforms upon ourselves. The spiritual world is in concealment, and if we yearn for it, it’s enough to draw the Light from there.
