Question: I don’t understand how a spiritual Partzuf can calculate to what extent it can receive in order to bestow if each time it discovers a new state in which it has never been before.
Answer: The spiritual Partzuf goes through new phases all the time. As it says: “They will be as new to you.” But it can perform different actions based on what was before. Thanks to what? Thanks to his asking the upper one to perform this action!
In our world, all the actions are also performed by the upper one, but you don’t think about it and you think that you are doing everything by yourself. But everything is done by the upper Light, and you are making a double mistake called double concealment.
In fact, you are not doing anything by yourself. Everything is done thanks to the mercy of the Creator, and we are not in charge of our actions, our decisions, and our calculations. You may feel doubtful and unsure as to how you will act in the spiritual world since you are used to feeling that you are in charge in this world and that everything depends on you. But here too, you never do anything or decide by yourself.
It only seems that you do; everything that you feel, decide, and carry out is fictional. Inside you there is a hand, like in a puppet, that constantly turns you, so relax.
