This happens according the laws of root and branch. All the worlds are arranged according to the same “pattern,” and the difference between them is not in the system but in the “matter.” We can, for example, build a house from Lego blocks or build a structure a more sophisticated structure for an exhibit from plastic or wood, stones or concrete… In fact the whole world is our home.
Therefore the same law applies in the upper worlds too. The parts there are of different material, but the external relations between them are the same. The structure of the lower world has the same structure as the upper world; in both worlds we sit and study the wisdom of Kabbalah.
Accordingly, the way we yearn for the desire to bestow in spirituality is the same in our world: People with the point in the heart yearn for the Land of Israel and not for any other place. They feel good in this place. What people with the point in the heart can fulfill and carry out here, they cannot carry out anywhere else. Of course, we try to overcome the distances that separate us, the different languages and other differences in the collective work of the global group, but we are still attracted to this land.
As for the other inhabitants of Israel, they found themselves here not according to their heart’s call, but as a result of many moves on the global “chessboard.” They will awaken with our help, but they don’t have the inclination and are not attracted to it. Give a person enough money, and he will leave this land. On the whole, as Baal HaSulam says, the Israeli nation is like a bag of nuts, and this nation lives here since it is forced to by external circumstances, and not because of an internal attraction.
