Question: How is it possible to restore the importance of the morning lesson if after so many years it has become routine and lost its taste?
Answer: The morning lesson is a place for the induction of the Upper Light. As if you come to a gas station to refuel. Throughout the day you need to gather all kinds of deficiencies—the need for the Light that Reforms, the need for the spiritual power, the need become similar to the Creator—to clarify and scrutinize: the true picture of the true world, my relationship to it, and its effect on me.
Throughout the entire day you need to see how much this form of reality you are spinning in, you still do not understand, is still not clear, is broken. And when you come to the morning lesson, this form needs to be clarified by the Light that Reforms in your thoughts and feelings, in all senses.
But if you have not prepared for the morning lesson, then it becomes a formal routine for you like subjects you learn in school: The Zohar, Talmud Eser Sefirot, and so forth. And then the lesson becomes empty without any benefit, a complete loss. If you don’t come to the lesson equipped with the right deficiency, then you will not receive the right fulfillment from the lesson, and then it follows that you learn wisdom and not Torah.
The Torah is called the Light that Reforms. So one of two things: either you study the Torah or wisdom, abstract theory. This is what you determine according to your intentions, the deficiency, and the need for correction that you prepared for the lesson.
