Question: You say that leprosy is the ego that emerges and cannot be corrected. Can it infect others with the disease?
Answer: Yes. It must be suppressed and isolated until a person has the powers to correct it.
When I ascend spiritually to the level of the priest, I can examine whether my desires are correct or not. It isn’t easy. First I have to be objective, which means exiting myself. Second, I must have the attributes of Tzimtzum (restriction), which means ascending above myself, and starting to study to what extent I can objectively discover my essence a little.
This is Pandora’s Box and when I open it the scariest, lowest, most horrifying, filthiest desires come out of there. Sometimes they may seem clean and right, but if I delve deeper into them, I see that underneath there is a concealed intention to harm others.
Comment: I always find this surprising and painful…
Answer: It depends on how you do it. You should prepare yourself for it, in order to examine everything gladly afterwards, since this leads you to a bright future, which means to an analysis that will free you of all the pain.
So the main thing is to first feel that you are ill. It depends on the environment you are in. If you enter the right environment, it will influence you in a way that you will begin to feel that there is something wrong with you. By examining yourself with regard to the goal described in Kabbalah books, you begin to feel the first new sensations: “Where am I wrong? Why don’t I live in accordance to the upper goal?”
