Answer: In this state we reach a real cry, not just a prayer. This is how strongly we feel the burning need for the removal of the concealment, and there are two states here.
In the first state I discover how I hate the concealment, from my personal egoistic perspective. I really hate this concealment and only want and hope that it would disappear, rot, and cease to exist. There is no greater joy for me than to discover that it has disappeared, burned, and been destroyed.
This state is meant to teach me and to show me the full measure of my hatred towards the concealment. Now I need to reach that, although I suddenly lose interest, but I hate it only because by removing it, I delight the Creator.
Can I reach the same burning hatred towards concealment because it stands in my way of delighting the Creator? I already have something to compare it to, my personal egoistic hatred. Now I need to apply the same impression with regard to the Creator: Can I hate this obstacle so much, although it’s not a hindrance for me but for Him because it doesn’t let me delight Him? And it’s certainly not in order to receive a reward, but in order to bestow.
