There are actions in the spiritual work in which parts of the offering that are meant to be burnt are separated from it. This matches the part of our desire that cannot be corrected and which seemingly rises in the air and is kept there.
There are limits indicating that we cannot fully correct our ego, but only a certain part of it. The rest is kept until the end of correction.
The point is that our correction can be included only in the circle we are in. But where are all the generations that preceded us and those that are yet to come? Where is the whole world as we know it today? We don’t include it in our correction now because we cannot correct it spiritually or physically.
All this remains and to the extent that humanity will approach the correction; our uncorrected parts will gradually begin to participate in it. But in the meantime they are separated this way and we can only operate in a small circle, in a group.
