Question: How does the Creator help us defeat the “Greeks” within us? After all, the “Israel” within me (a person who yearns for the Creator) seems so helpless facing them.
Answer: Yes, it is said that an old foolish king and a clever child struggle with each other. Our nature is the evil inclination, the thick egotistic shell in which one tiny point is hidden, and it has no way of breaking out. This is why we have to awaken ourselves!
You are like a little worm sitting inside a bitter radish or an apple. How can you get out? It is impossible. It surrounds you on all sides and there is no way out. You cannot do anything against such forces.
But if there are more friends like you inside, and each one has a point in the heart, then you collect all these points, read The Book of Zohar, and connect to it wanting to understand what is going on and what the Creator wants from us. This way you connect with the upper system and draw the Surrounding Light that reforms.
Then you have a chance, but only thanks to the Light. The Light is the Creator that is revealed to you.
