If a person remembers that everything stems from one source, that there is none else besides Him, and knows how to relate to that, he discovers that the war is only for the revelation of the Creator and that there is no other war.
We shouldn’t fight the obstacles, which is really like fighting windmills, but rather we should fight the concealment as we get closer to the Creator, to there is none else besides Him, and hold on to Him with all our might. We mustn’t let the different disturbances confuse us and divert us from the right direction.
The whole war is only against the concealment. There is nothing the created being can do in creation except to reveal the upper force. Thus we get rid of all our troubles and our problems, which are a result of the concealment, and from the influence of the Upper Light on us, we then become vessels of bestowal. Thus we advance up the levels of correction until the actual end of correction, which means until the complete revelation.
We mustn’t forget that the work against the concealment is the work in our vessels so that they will be suitable for the revelation. If I see that I am in the system of concealment, which operates against me in order to give me a chance to exert myself, then I discover that the actual concealment is the hand of God who has prepared this for me.
I don’t ask for the concealment to disappear, but ask only for the force of bestowal even if the Creator is concealed. I don’t expect the concealment to be removed but that I will be able to work in the concealment just as in revelation.
