Answer: That’s the main idea, to be pulled forward. A little push from behind is enough to wake you to take more work upon yourself. It says that the Creator puts a person’s hand on the good fate, which means that He directs a person. Then you do the work.
Question: But in order to be drawn forward I must first hold on to something. After all, I will not climb up in the air. What can I hold to up there above my head in order to be drawn upward?
Answer: It’s hard to say. Every person has an “angel” that guides him. It’s a special force, aimed at connection, at participating in the life of the general system. On the whole, a person advances not knowing where and why, by urges that he doesn’t understand.
These are not urges of the “steamroller of evolution” that come from behind, but rather “signals from the future,” that pull me somewhere, saying something, and on the whole creating different opportunities. Suddenly I see and hear something, come across someone, find a book…this is how my “angel” operates.
So in the meantime there is no clear cut answer to your question. Later you will see that these are all the forces of our evolution about which we study in The Study of the Ten Sefirot. Soon, we will approach them and will start speaking the language of this book…
