Answer: A person has no steering wheel, he is run from above, and he should only change his attitude to what is done to him. In such states, we have no power over ourselves; we just need to understand this and agree to want that the Creator would do His work on us. That’s why it is called the “work of the Creator” (Avodat HaShem).
What we need to do is to cancel ourselves and be glad that the upper takes care of us just as babies are taken care of by their mother. That is enough. And if we do this well, then we might reveal later how we ourselves can participate in this work. Our main part is to be joyful—when I am happy that the upper takes care of me no matter what He does to me!
